Lofoten and Västerålen - Norway

Lofoten and Västerålen

Lofoten are known for the mountains that go from the sea to the clouds... There is a lot of small lakes with around some red houses. Some of these houses have grass on the roof. Along the lofoten coast (Here, Moskenes islands), there is some bays with a small harbour in each bay (å, Tind, Sorvågen...). These villages are between the sea and the mountains. The rorbus are some fisher houses in the Lofoten islands. They were used only in winter time when the fishermen were coming from the south to fish. Bridges are one of the way to circulate between the islands in the Lofoten. Other possibilities are ferries and underwater tunnel.
Vesterålen are islands on the north eats of the Lofoten. Mountains start to be bigger and bigger and more "lofoten Like". There are also more and more red houses near the sea.
