The days are long and bright in Norway now, and that means we'll se more great pictures from the evening and midnight sun. Here are the top five picks of the week from our community.
Reine must be one of Norway’s most magical places. It’s almost at the tip of Lofoten. Between the village and the mainland there are miles and miles of open sea, but they have a road connection nonetheless – running through the entire archipelago.
Fishermen found their way here ages ago. As a trading post, it goes back almost 300 years, back to 1743.
And then there’s the nature. The wonderful picture above, taken at Reine, comes from Even Tryggstrand.
Here are the rest of this week’s top picks.
The island Runde in Herøy at Sunnmøre has great scenery, a rich birdlife and a dramatic history – with several shipwrecks. Today, its lighthouse is a DNT cabin and popular tourist destination. This great photo from the island was taken by Steffen Voldslund. Well done!
This is true Norwegian summer for you. The flowers are having a great time in the sun, with the stunning west coast scenery in the background. The photo by Per-Arild Kile was taken at Oppstryn near the Jostedalsbreen national park centre.
The more we look at this picture from Grete Øuamo, the more we end up thinking about the encounters between man, nature and history. In the sunset by the old docks of Ranheimsfjæra in Trondheim, there’s a special atmosphere indeed.
Last but not least we have this photo of these lupins in the sunset, taken at in Klepp, in Rogaland county, by Richard Larssen. We hope it puts you in the right mood for a fantastic summer weekend!
There’s an incredible amount of stunning pictures among the first million Instagram posts tagged #VisitNorway. Here’s a few of them.
