One of Norway’s most remote communities, the village of Leknes stands on the coast of Leka island off the far northwestern coast. It’s part of the Lofoten Archipelago that has become a popular tourist destination. This is a pristine environment of jagged mountains, sandy beaches and wooden cabins on stilts. Visitors eat fresh fish, go on bird and whale watching trips, see Viking relics and even play golf and go surfing. It’s easier to get around the islands if you hire a car in Leknes and travel through the series of bridges and causeways - the E1 road connects all the islands and the mainland.
