    You have delivered some stunning pictures from Henningsvær and Svolvær, Sterkoder

    Gorgeous details and colorful motifs from these two great places in your photos.
    Great pictures of "Albatros" at anchor outside of Svolvær harbor as well.
    Based on your photos, it appears that you and your family have enjoyed your vacation very well.
    Best wishes from
    Bengt Domben

      I enjoyed doing this walk together with you. You have your personal view on things and i like that very much. However we have not always the same opinion. But maybe the term "nice concrete house" was sarcastic, then it meets my taste again. When i am there again some day i will for sure recognize your picture spots.

        Thank you so much! Yes, we enjoyed our stay in Lofoten this time to, as we did in 2012, and back then having room 420, this time we had 419 at Thon Svolvær.
        Both yes and no, Ralf, as I kind of liked that concrete house in the way it stood out from the rest and maybe no when I ask myself; does that architecture really fit in?
        Anyway, I'm happy you could enjoy a walk with me...., and still we have Nusfjord to come

          On our way out to Nusfjord. This is the formation around Bjørntinden mountain (809 meters) as seen from the Nusfjordveien road close to Storvatnet

          To enter the small village, it cost 50,- pr. person. The income will be used to uphold the place as a tourist attraction

          Inner harbour, surrounded by rorbuer (fishermens cottages rebuilt as holiday cabins)

          Not many boats throughout the time that didn't run on Shell fuel up north, I guess

          'Rorbuer'..., holiday cabins for rent

          Just a colorful place

            I guess it's for the tourists?
            SSL23298 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

            Yes, definitely
            SSL23299 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

            The small fishing boat there is known from tv commercials for Kaviar here in Norway. It's name is HAVDUR

            Can't remember her name right now

              Nusfjord is such a beautiful, and peaceful place
              SSL23317 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              Ok, so they translate 'trandamperi' as cod liver refinery, which is more correct I would say, as they extracted the fish oil by boiling cod liver. Can you imagine the small??
              SSL23322 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              A fishermans glove. If this is dipped in seawater before putting the hand inside, it actually get warm. Yes, belive it or not...
              SSL23323 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              The old grocery store, today used as a souvenir shop and still a few groceries, as many people actually live in this paradise during the summer season.
              SSL23327 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              All grocery shops had this sign in older days
              SSL23329 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              I'll try to translate, from top to bottom: 1. People cought spitting inside, will be expelled 2. Unwanted people, no entrance 3. Delivery boys, please use the kitchen door

              Interior. Some of the artifacts are just for display, some are for sale

                On our way out of Nusfjord, this is a 306 meters high rock as seen from Bottelvika
                SSL23335 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

                And before returning to Unstad beach and Svolvær, I wanted to see how they camouflage their larger buildings out in Ballstad. Rather nice, I would say
                SSL23341 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

                The small chapel down by the Unstad beach. Thought it would do great in b/w
                SSL23343 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

                A camper. No prize if you guess this is a surfer
                SSL23349 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

                Unstad is famous and popular for its surfing possibilities. Note the two heads and surfboard to the right

                Hope you enjoyed this trip to Nusfjord and Unstad

                  Oh. Wow. Never heard of these places before and did also not see any pictures up to now. Wonderful additions. I wonder if we will that include in our travel plans for next year. I promised a cup of coffee to my wife in the Nordkapp café. We will travel with our campervan. I think, a Lofoten visit is definetely a must...

                    Follow the Ireland - Wild Atlantic Way thread. We are used to such roads. Nothing better like such ones!

                    Yes, but I always tell everyone I care about to take care and drive safe, so you can't get away from that one ;-)
