Located on the east coast of Moskenesoy is the small fishing village of Hamnoy which is supposedly the oldest and arguably the most picturesque fishing village in the Lofoten Islands.

The Norweigian fjords have forever portrayed Norway as a country of natural beauty, with its magnificent dramatic landscapes surrounded by many deep narrow waterways which meander inland off the North Atlantic Ocean. With such a magnificent coastline which stretches the entirety of the country, there was a need to pick out a specific region which was feasible to explore and enjoy within a week.

As the geographical centre of Lofoten, and with so much to do and see in Vestvagoy, there was no doubt that we would stay somewhere on the island but the question was...

Vatnajokull Glacier, the largest glacier in both Iceland and Europe, displays fascinating ice caves.  Like GoEcco Eco Tours describes "It’s like standing under a frozen blue ocean or in a frozen cathedral surrounded by millions of shades of blue".

- Reykjavik -

Small, vibrant and sophisticated as well as being rich in culture and history, Reykjavik is the gateway to Iceland and the natural starting point to any Iceland adventure.
