Vesteraalen "Sortland"

The Vesteraalen archipelago is a magnificent set of islands with the most stunning natural surroundings. This is a place that brings you back in time to what life was like 100 years ago. There are still people living on small islands where the boa is the only means of transport to schools, shops and amenities. This is a true representation of how to live off the land. Fishing is by far the largest industry. Due to the rich supply of fish this is also where you will find the magnificent whales. The Vesteraalen islands are hom to whales all year round.
