Vegaøyan, Norway

The Vega Archipelago, or Vegaøyan in Norwegian, corresponding roughly to the municipality of Vega, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004. This cluster of around 6,500 small islands in Nordland just south of the Arctic circle surrounds the main island of Vega and has been inhabited since the Stone Age. It illustrates the human capacities allowing people to survive Nordic conditions in a sea environment.

Access to the archipelago is by ferry or fast boat from Brønnøysund, Nordland, which can be reached by plane or by road.
