Flakstad & Moskenes

The island boroughs of Flakstad and Moskenes constitute the most distinctive part of the Lofoten region, where Nature's abundance, wildness and mysticism have characterised the area, and the people living there, for thousands of years.

The fishing, and production of cod-liver oil and stockfish that go on during the famous Lofoten Winter Cod Fishery, have constituted the region's most important sources of income for thousands of years.

The video provides viewers with an insight into what this part of Lofoten has to offer the visitor, renowned as it is in literature for the Arctic cod, the sheer and jagged mountain peaks, the infamous Maelstrom - and the recently discovered cave paintings to be found beneath Europe's oldest mountains.
