Steinavær and other small archipelago groups in the area were populated to shorten the distance to the fishing grounds and the rich deposits of cod. Large piers transformed weather-prone natural harbours into quiet lagoons in the middle of the sea.

The tour starts in Skrolsvik with security briefings and information. The captain and guide will make sure all participants are properly dressed before the adventure begins. The voyage over the sea is about 7.5 nautical miles from Skrolsvik and takes about 25 minutes each way. Steinavær or "Steine" is an island weather located in Andfjorden, between Senja and Andøy. "Styrmansholmen" is the largest of the islands and where the main port is located. Steinavær had a permanent settlement until 1912 and was completely abandoned in 1914. Foundations, walls, pier foundations, small roads, and quarries can still be seen on the islands, making it easy to imagine the hard lifestyle that took place out there in the sea more than a century ago.
