Reine has been a commercial port since 1793. It is located in the Lofoten Islands and was chosen by a well-known publication in Norway, the magazine Allers, as the prettiest village in the country. I think that Reine has lots of competition in this department because it is very difficult to choose just one. The villages in the Lofoten islands are my favorite from around the country, most small towns are very picturesque, situated by the sea and surrounded by spectacular mountains. Its inhabitants lived in earlier times or drying fishing for cod, now do mainly from tourism. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful, as it is located at the foot of the mountain called Reinebringen.
