Lofoten Islands
In northern Norway you can find some small islands surrounded by fjords. These islands offer us a landscape of the greatest contrasts: the gray sky, and green meadows, and the red, green and blue houses. Cod is one of the specialties of this area, so if you like it I recommend you to visit these islands.
Fjords in Lofoten
The Troll Fjord
Our trip to Scandinavia was a dream come true for us. The picture I have put here was taken in the Troll Fjord, (Trollfjord), inside the Arctic Circle in Norway, one of the most majestic fjords with walls ​​several tens of meters high, through which we sailed for one morning, discovering unforgettable landscapes, fjords surrounded by mountains, wrapped in a mysterious fog and with fantastic legends, while enjoying on board the ship a seafood soup, whale meat, salmon and grilled vegetables. During the tour the guide explained how the fjords were formed, at the time of the glacial age ice excavated the valleys on the coast to below the level of the marine platform, when the ice retreated, the ocean water filled these excavated valleys and gave them their particular forms. The journey to the North Cape Airport in the northernmost point of Norway took about four hours from Madrid, and the whole experience was an excellent one.
Beaches in Lofoten
Rørvik White Sands Beach (Rørvik Strand)
The Lofoten Islands are an archipelago near the Arctic Circle. It is one of the corners of the world and that dazzle visitors with its exceptional beauty. It's a haven where we can dream about more than our mundane realities .... It is recomended to explore all the islands in thier entireity. They are linked by bridges and tunnels, and one can travel from North to South, or South to North, by bus, bicycle or motorhome. You'll be able to enjoy the unspoiled nature of the native vegetation, the aged wooden churches, the small fishing villages, the rich Norweigen gastronomy and if you're lucky,and you travel at the appropriate time, the spectacular midnight sun ... Our journey through the Lofoten Islands left us with a uniquely beautiful image of Rørvik, close to where we saw a small beach with white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters, surrounded by wildflowers and a small mountain range that emerged from the neighboring islands. That vision seemed to transport us for a moment to warmer latitudes. Though we were in the Arctic, it was not surprising to see the brave Norwegian-Guys and Dolls-swimming in the clear waters of Rørvik and - between June and July-lying peacefully on the transparent sand enjoying 24 continuous hours of sun .... A luxury .....

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.
