Typified by steep mountains and the flat lowlands where they meet the Norwegian Sea, Nordland is known for its stunning scenery. The Lofoten Islands off the mainland are considered among the world's best for travelers and include unique attractions like the Lofotr Viking Museum at Borg. Saltstraumen near Bodo has the world's strongest tidal current. Further south, Vega has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its age-old lifestyle of fishing and eider duck down harvesting.

Henningsvær is a very cosy little place that I enjoy staying in. Small shops and galleries, great characteristic fishing village and still a vibrant town. Just being here makes me relax. Take some time here and slow down.

Galleri SOS presents works of Stig-Ove Sivertsen. Impermanence is a recurrent theme of his paintings. Melancholic faces and still life. Rust. Pollution. Skulls. Stormy weather. Tired houses. Car wrecks. Landscapes, as they were created. Style? What's it about? He can't say - because then everyoneknows.

Experience the history of the Lofoten Fishery at one of the best preserved squires in Lofoten. On the site of the medieval town of Vågar (now called Storvågan / SKREI Experience Center) you'll find the stately 1815 main building, authentic fishermen's cabins, and boathouses featuring Nordland boats. The museum also offers picture-games and exhibitions on the Lofoten fisheries, ports and coastal lighthouses, traditional crafts and a beautiful garden with historic perennials.

After Bodo was bombed during World War II, the Germans built a fortress at Bremnes to guard the approach by sea to Bodo. The adjoining areas are excellent for fishing and hillwalking. A walk up the path to the top of Bremnes is rewarded by a -magnificent view of the scenic island of Landegode. On clear days you can enjoy the midnight sun from 2 June to 10 July.

This is a super charming little village where you have the chance to take amazing pictures of the traditional wooden buildings and the seaside landscape; even on a stormy day is worth a visit. You arrive here by a little road trough the mountains, this gives you more the idea of how isolated were these village in the past, it is definitely my favourite in the whole Lofoten islands. Next time I want to try the hot tub and sauna.

The Blood Road Museum is situated in the grounds of Saltdal Museum. The story of the lives and work of prisoners of war under the German regime from 1942-1945 is presented in a German barracks moved here from Dunderdalen. Thousands of prisoners of war from eastern Europe were sent north to build roads and railways. They suffered inhuman conditions. Many never returned. This is a different tour experience in surroundings where the silence is tangible. Words are inadequate but impressions are many and deep. This is an important journey in a time which must never be forgotten.
