Langøya and Nyksund

Embark on a scenic adventure through Langøya as we make our way to Nyksund, a small, enchanting fishing village lost in time.

Buckle up for a scenic adventure! Embark on a 1 hour 40 min (70km) journey along a winding road that leads to the remote fishing town of Nyksund. During the winter months, the population dwindles to only around 20 – and a couple of them are dogs!

Despite its desolate setting, Nyksund retains a hauntingly magical presence that is a must-see for photographers and artists alike. The harsh reality of life in the Arctic, exposed to the unforgiving sea, is palpable as you stroll along the wooden walkways that overlook the harbour and the often-turbulent waters beyond. Prepare to be enchanted by this small, forgotten town that time forgot.

If you’re in search of a Starbucks fix, you’re out of luck – this town is strictly for the adventurous! However, a possible lunch stop may be available in Nyksund, where you can indulge in some of the best Norwegian waffles and a hot drink.

And the journey to and from Nyksund offers plenty of opportunities for shutterbugs to capture the breathtaking landscape of this remote region. Get ready for an unforgettable trip!

There are a few options for us to stop at fuel stations whilst en-route and there are  also toilet facilities in Nyksund.
