out of 5

This remote village is located on Moskenes Island, at the southern end of Norway's Lofoten archipelago, and its name simply means 'stream' in Old Norse.

While Å might be small in size, it doesn't lack in character. The village is home to a mere hundred or so residents. In this serene place, the primary industry is fishing, a tradition carried down through generations. The village is dotted with well-preserved 19th-century wooden buildings, including the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum and the Lofoten Stockfish Museum, which paint a vivid picture of the region's maritime history.

But it's not all about history. The village is surrounded by natural beauty, with towering mountains and crystal-clear waters. For those seeking outdoor activities, hiking and fishing are popular, and the scenic environment provides an ideal backdrop for photographers.

Be prepared for limited services: the village has just one general store and a single restaurant, but the friendly locals are always ready to lend a helping hand.
