42 buildings in the old part of town burnt down in a major fire in 2014 - and several more were damaged, and while there are no visible traces for the untrained eye, it's noticeable the old part is thinned out. Nonetheless, the ones left...More

The old part of this town looks like a Sergio Leone western movie set. It is so nice and cozy but also you have the idea of being in a abandoned village. Very nice to visit. Pretty unique place.

A pleasant stroll through the old town reveals a simplicity of design and style that is typical of old Norway. Many houses are still lived in. The walk down Main Street does not take long and is very accessible. The ferry no longer runs from...More
