More than 100,000 visitors per year
SKREI will attract guests from near and far and convey history to many target groups. In addition to the values created on site, cod will also create major economic ripple effects. Like the Lofoten fishery and Norway’s most important fish, SKREI will also create great values – both of cultural significance but also economically.
SKREI will be open all year round. There will be exhibitions, activities and experiences adapted to the season and visitor numbers. SKREI will be a relevant arena for the local population to seek out knowledge about the Lofoten fishery. Visitors will gain insight into cultural history and, through experiences and knowledge, gain a better basis for understanding what Lofoten is, what the Lofoten fishery was and is and how this is displayed in our culture and industry also today. SKREI has ripple effects.
100,000 – 120,000 guests per year
These guests will come from far and near. Visitors to our region will want to visit SKREI to learn more about the Lofoten fishery’s past, present and future. People from all over the world will travel richer from Lofoten – because they have learned more and have gained a greater understanding of life in the north, history and cultural heritage.
By providing Lofoten with an important attraction, SKREI will motivate guests to stay longer in the region. This contributes to the demand for experiences, accommodation and general service.
