A small fishing village with a name that is only one letter long, Å is located at the southern end of the Lofoten Islands. With a population of around 100 the town traditionally specializes in stockfish; unsalted fish that is dried on the foreshore by hanging it from wooden racks in the high winds. The coast is dotted with rorbuer; seasonal cabins built over the water and typically used by fishermen. I was the only visitor to the sleepy village at the time, so this special place full of kind locals was all mine to explore.
