Henningsver and the stadium among the rocks of Norway. Description, photos.

soccer field on the island of Henningsver Norway

We are not going to hint at anything here and show pictures of the soccer field covering the stadium for space money, but just see what kind of soccer field there is on the Lofoten islands.

For Russians, a soccer field beyond the Arctic Circle is no big deal. Anyone can have a drink for courage, wrap himself in warm furs, and type “stadium in Vorkuta” into Google. After that, the most fierce cold reeks from the computer.

But what can’t be taken away from Norway is the ability to make its quirks picturesque. On the Lafoten Islands, where 24 thousand man-Norwegians live, the islanders had to provide themselves with an open stadium. And the local club, playing in the third league, already has a Stranda Stadion with 3,000 seats! The new one is designed for amateurs, so it does not have any stands. The facility is called “Henningsv? r Stadium” and is located near the village of the same name for five hundred souls. It is a pretty fishing village with traditional Scandinavian architecture that makes tourists go crazy.

Idrettslag is in the small fishing village of Henningsver, which occupies two small islands in the Norwegian archipelago of Lofonten. It can hardly be called a stadium, as there are no stands – just a few meters of asphalt around the field. The ground is used only for amateur soccer, but the majestic location has already made Idrettslag famous around the world. Many would dream of playing soccer on such an unusual site.

The stadium sits on a rocky island surrounded by stunning scenery of dramatic jagged mountains, open sea and bays. The soccer field was laid on rugged rock at the southernmost part of Henningsver Island and quickly gained worldwide popularity due to such a dramatic location. Around the perimeter of the field is a strip of asphalt that serves simultaneously as bleachers, parking and car parking. The tiny capacity of the stadium seems sufficient, as the village of Henningsver is home to approximately 500 residents.

The pitch is covered with artificial turf, as natural turf would not take root in such harsh conditions. The stadium is mainly used by representatives of the amateur club Henningsvar IL to teach soccer to local children and to hold friendly matches. It even has lighting masts for evening games.

Your final destination is the village of Henningsvar. Imagine you are in Oslo. Now imagine as if you got a plane ticket to Budo, which isn’t that close – an hour and a half flight. There are many different ways to get from Budo to the Lofoten Islands. Imagine that you chose the easiest one – then it would be a ferry crossing.

Henningsver and the stadium on an island in Norway

Norway is a pretty “rough” country. Almost all of its territory is covered by mountains, the coast is riddled with beautiful fjords, and the coast islands are similarly mountainous. In particular stop at the islands Henningsver. More precisely, the village of Henningsver, located on several islands connected by bridges.

Art Galleries

Next to the large village square is a wooden building that houses the Lofotens Hus Gallery. Paid admission includes a screening of a short film that showcases the region’s diverse wildlife and gives you a glimpse of Lofoten life throughout the year. The upper floors also showcase local artwork and souvenirs from the history of the fishing village.

Lofotens Hus Gallery

You can see glassblowers working during the day in the open studio. Here you can also buy finished products.

Do not miss the gallery with collections of modern art, located in the former factory, which produced fish products for 40 years.

What makes this gallery special is that unlike traditional exhibitions, the focus here is on giving locals on the island the opportunity to see art from around the world.

Henningsvaer Stadium (Henningsvaer Fotballbanen)

Strange as it may seem, the inhabitants of the village are very fond of soccer, so here is built the most real stadium that meets the strict rules of UEFA.

Henningsver Stadium

The most suitable size and flat area was selected for the construction of the soccer field and the final ground was levelled. Perhaps this stadium can be considered the most amazing feature of the village of Henningsver.

Imagine the rocks, where there is almost no flat area, and suddenly the stadium. And not just a simple yard, but a real one, with a level lawn, markings and other trappings. The main thing is not to kick the ball too hard so it doesn’t fly into the sea.

The stadium is located on an island surrounded by cliffs and breathtaking scenery. The steep mountains, the sea, and the fishing lodges along the bays make for an unforgettable experience. But unfortunately, there is little room for spectators.

The stadium has been managed by the local soccer club Henningsvaer IL under Ole Johan Wiik since 2018.

Recreational activities for tourists in Henningsvaer

If you plan to spend time in the village itself, however, take advantage of the local small hotels.

The 30 double rooms of the Henningsvaer Bryggehotell offer the most modern accommodation in the village in one of the historic buildings.

Another place offering both accommodation and meals is the Finnholmen Brygge family hotel. The small economy rooms are a great choice, as they all have a sea view and a private bathroom.

Another budget option is the rooms (with shared bathroom) at Café Climbers by Nord Norsk Klatreskole.

How to get there

The village is located 25 km southwest of the town of Svolver on the E10 highway. When you get to Henningsver on route 816 you get great views of the coast of Lofoten.

Remarkably, when you leave the E10, you hit a narrow, winding road. Here you can meet not only cars and cyclists, but also carefree pedestrians. Be careful if you go here by car.

By the way, unlike in metropolitan areas, in the village of Henningsver there is a spacious square where you can safely leave your car
