The Norwegian archipelago of Vesterålen, in the northwest of the Scandinavian country is where you'll find the town of Sortland. Having been little more than a transfer point for those travelling across the mountainous regions in the past, now Sortland's quirky personality comes through with just a glace; The Blue City was made that way by a notable inhabitant with gallons of paint ready to add some personality.
Hire a car in Sortland and you can see for yourself just what lends the town its own unique qualities - from the unusual architecture to the stunning sights visible in the night sky; aurora borealis.
Due to Sortland's place above the Arctic Circle, during a month in the summer the sun does not go down - and conversely for a month during the winter, it does not come up. This is when you'll get the best view of the Northern Lights; solar storms dancing in the sky as humongous natural light displays - truly a sight to behold if you're in the region.
Hire a car in Sortland and the islands of the Vesterålen are easily accessible by bridge, as is the Norwegian mainland. Capital Oslo is a good few hours away but well worth the trip for its tourist attractions and great food.
