Vesterålen

Photo and caption by Morten Andreas Nome

View towards Langøya; the third largest Island in Norway, part of the Vesterålen archipelago. Vesterålen is the less-known cousin and neighbour of Lofoten, which is visited by thousands of tourists every year. The photo was taken during a skiing trip on Dyrøya, one of the smaller islands of the archipelago. Skins made of nylon (previously made of seal fur; the technique is centuries old) are used to climb the steep hills.

Location: Vesterålen, Norway
