Nusfjord, Norway

With a backdrop of sharp gray peaks and nestled around a tiny harbor that is itself ensconced within a fjord, Nusfjord is one of the most alluring of the well-preserved fishing villages in Norway’s Lofoten archipelago. In this town on the south coast of Vestvågøy, cod stockfish still hang to dry in front of bright red and yellow fishing cabins next to the harbor. Visitors can also observe how cod liver oil is refined and shop for local foods and gifts at a general store.
