Known by many as the Venice of the North for its architecture as it is comprised of a group of randomly arranged islands separated by canals, Henningsvær is one of the most charming towns in the Lofoten Islands and from the 19th century one of its most important fishing ports. ,Heningsvær has not changed in recent years, and has more than 500 inhabitants. Henningsvær islands were not connected by bridges to the rest of Lofoten until the year 1981, a fact that probably saved the community from the influence of modern architectural style, it did leave its mark on other Norwegian towns during the 60s and 70s. It is perfect to sit in any of the restaurants at the harbor's edge and enjoy the tranquility of this town while we taste the exquisite cuisine. A treat for all the senses.
This town is located in the southernmost part of the Lofoten archipelago in Norway. It's actually a museum village on the island of Moskenesøya, with only 100 inhabitants, but whose traditional wooden buildings make up a beautiful historic background to take visitors back to the 19th century. This town is home to the first preparation plant, which you can still visit, of detestable cod liver oil that soured the childhood of many postwar Spanish children. At the end of the 19th century, the greasy liquid that floats to the top of the water after boiling cod was distributed to the world. Experts claimed it was the panacea for all illnesses, particularly against malnutrition, because of its richness in vitamin D. Today, the town's economy has been moving mainly towards tourism, because it's located in a very beautiful environment surrounded by beautiful landscapes. Many buildings have been used to create the local Museum of Norwegian Fishing Towns, which includes an ancient craft shop, boat sheds, antique bakery, warehouses and others. It was our first stop after taking the ferry from Bodø to the Lofoten islands, and the first contact with this beautiful archipelago that we still had a lot to discover.
Mulstøa is a remote village in Norway, which is reached by a footpath walk from Yttersand. The guides said it was a passable trail, but there are sections that are for goats.. Still, do not despair, because you will not regret it when you see the wonderful beach and lose the world. Just a house that looks unoccupied, and lots of sheep roaming around. It is a place where you can sit back and forget about everything.
