Norwegian Fishing Village Museum
Å is the last letter of the Norwegian alphabet and quite literally the end of the road in Lofoten. The E16 highway that snakes around the archipelago ends abruptly in a car park for Å, a village which leads a double life as the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum. The line between museum and community is a blurry one as you explore the wooden cabins, historical gardens, blacksmith, cod liver oil factory and boat sheds in this simply stunning coastal setting. The 19th-century stone oven bakery still bakes fresh bread and cinnamon buns daily, while you can buy locally-produced food, textiles, clothing and fishing equipment from the grocery store. To complete the experience, book an overnight stay in an authentic fisherman’s cabin by the water’s edge.
