 Lofoten

The description of Ramberg beach on the Lofoten Islands begins like many of the other tropical beaches on Super Cool Beaches. A crescent of white sands washed by crystal clear turquoise water...

...but hold on a minute. Ramberg is anything but tropical, it is located in the Arctic Circle. In fact you are more likely to be chased polar bear than a shark in these frigid waters. And the big green mountains that rise up beyond the beach might make you think of Hawaii or Tahiti but they spend much of the year covered in snow.

Ramberg is a village on the island of Flakstadøya and the administrative centre of Flakstad municipality. It has approximately 350 inhabitants. The European route E10 highway passes through Ramberg. Ramberg is also famous for its white sand beach.

Ramberg school, located by the beach, caters for students from 1st to 10th grade and has both a swimming pool and a high standard synthetic grass soccer field. Flakstad Church is located about 4 kilometres northeast of Ramberg. It is the second church building to exist on this site since 1430. The timber used for the church comes from Russia—the people of Flakstad exchanged fish for timber during the Pomor trade. This is why the steeple has a Russian Orthodox look.
