ÅI mean, it is simply stunning.
A serene fishing village in Lofoten, home to under 100 residents and stunning natural beauty.
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.
