A little village by the sea. Located south-west in the Lofoten islands. App 320 inhabitants. The 9th of December will be the last sunset this year, and 3rd of January 2013 the first sunrise will appear. Lofoten is a group of islands in the northern part of Norway. With its postcard looking small fishing villages nestled in fjords, dotting a very rugged coast with abrupt peaks rising directly from the ocean, the archipelago is often described as one of the most scenic parts of Norway.
