Fishermen's shacks, Mortsund, Vestvagoy, Nordland
Vestvagoy is one of the most scenic islands in Norway, and one of the most populated in the regions of Lofoten islands and Vesteralen.
The island is connected with areas in the west by a tunnel under Nappstraumen, and by a road to the east that crosses to the islands of Gimsoy and Austvagoy by means of two bridges.
With primarily a fishing and agricultural economy, the area is known as a major producer of butter and cheese, as well as lamb.
