Uttakleiv Beach is known as the most beautiful beach of Norway. Here’s why.

Uttakleiv (or Utakleiv) – next to Haukland beach – is the most popular (and therefore most photographed) beach of Lofoten Islands. It is well obvious why: Especially during winter sunsets, people wait for the astonishing light show. Also, it is a well known place to experience the aurora borealis. On less cloudy nights, it is an unforgettable experience.

 

About 10 miles away from Leknes, Vestvågøy, the beaches eastern direction makes it just perfect for sunsets during winter. The contrast between the pink and blue sky, black rocks and the Carribean water is simply breathtaking.

Utakleiv is a great spot in general, as you have to drive past Vik and Haukland Beach to reach this gem of landscape. Also, Mannen Mountain offers a really great hike to discover an amazing areal view.
