GUIDED TOURS

The history of Torekov

From fishing village to elegant summer resort

Join a historic walk, beginning in the medieval fishing village of Torekov. Hear the heartbreaking legend of Thora, local patron saint and once an object of pilgrimage. Admire the ruined church, the Pilot Look-out Station, the Maritime Museum and the Shed with its impressive collection of name boards from long-lost ships. Take a stroll in the romantic narrow alleys with well-preserved houses, maybe basking in the sun but still almost bracing themselves against future winter storms. Find out more about the Great Fire of 1858, seaweed baths, herring fishing, emigration, dangerous waters, wrecks, alleged ill will and disasters. Dive into the history of the art colony or 21st century Torekov, a thriving summer resort with soaring property prices and unique swimming traditions.
