It’s as if you have stepped into a time warp – small cobblestone roads, bridges every which way you look. The summer months in this town are best so you can raft down the Vltavy River.

Reine is a quaint fishing village that can be found on the beautiful arctic island of Moskenesøya. The port has a population of only 329, but was rightfully voted the most beautiful village in all of Norway.
