About the village named Torsken

Torsken is the Norwegian word for Cod Fish.

The community in Torsken has a little less than 200 inhabitants. Just above the fishing village is a rock formation that used to look a bit like the head of a Cod. According to tradition, this mountain is the origin of the name of the village. This formation has now collapsed.

The fjord outside Torsken has always attracted many fishermen and provided a good livelihood for people in Torsken. Now it is fish farming and the fish industry on land that employ the inhabitants. The place also has a grocery store and a kiosk. Children in Torsken must travel to the neighbour village Gryllefjord to go to school.

Senja by Heart with Senja Fjordcamp and TorskenSenteret offers accommodation and has a restaurant inside Senja Fjordcamp.
