Langoya Island - Norway

Langoya Island is one of the mountainous islands of the Vesteralen archipelago to the north of the Lofoten Island chain. Composed of some of the world's oldest rocks, divided by fjords during the Ice Age, the islands are the setting of fertile farmlands and a jagged coastline dotted with fishing villages and ancient rocks - rising sheer from the sea to over 3,000 feet in some places. Perhaps the most fascinating feature is the wildlife. Seals and whales are often sighted off shore and there is plenty of fascinating birdlife to observe including cormorant, kittiwake, puffin and the white-tailed eagle.
