Å: Small Town of Norway – Dorian’s Secrets

Did you know that…

Å (pronounced as the Spanish vowel o) is a small town belonging to the municipality of Moskenes, in the Lofoten Islands, in Norway.

With a name as peculiar as it is short, Å was a traditional fishing village specialized in salting and drying fish, especially cod. Currently, its economy has shifted towards tourism.

The town has two museums: the Lofoten Tørrfiskmuseum and the Norsk Fiskeværsmuseum. It is connected by the King Olaf Highway (European road E-10). Å means “stream” in Norwegian.

Å is also a very small town in the municipality of Meldal, Sør-Trøndelag province, Norway. This place, previously (until 1917) spelled Aa, has the postal code 7335 Jerpstad, to distinguish it from other places called Å. Lofoten Å has the postal address 8392 Sørvågen. There is also a town called Å in Vesterålen, in the Nordland province.
