A brief stop in Svolvaer, the capital of the Lofoten Islands, gave us enough time to go to Magic Ice - a gallery and bar where everything is made of ice sculptures. The room is lit by candlelight and colourful spotlights showing off every intricate detail of each piece of art. A great attraction showing off amazing skill. It is by far better than the ice bar in Reykjavik. ...

He and his wife traveled and lived abroad and he ended up being a guide back in the Lofoten Islands. So I was his only audience. Both Rodrigo and Johnny made ...
... we got there, it really cleared up. We turned off the E10 and the landscape changed from large and looming, snowclad mountains to rugged coastal views. The road hugged the coast tightly and it was like being in the middle of nowhere. Henningsvaer is on a promonotory jutting out into the sea.
