Welcome to Måløy
On a blasting winter's day in the teeth of an Atlantic gale, the isolated fishing port of Måløy feels like the end of the earth – but catch it on a rare sunny, windless day and it's as peaceful and pleasant a small town as you could hope for. Like most of this corner of Norway, it's a town with a long fishing heritage that's now been upstaged by oil.
It sits at the mouth of Nordfjord, and is actually on a separate island, Vågsøy, linked to the mainland by the graceful S-curve of Måløybrua bridge. Commercial boats ply up and down and it's a refreshingly real, working town.
