Set at the foot of a green valley between towering cliffs on the far western coast of Norway is Hoddevik. This little fishing outpost with its weatherboard huts sits in front of one of the regions finest beaches. With almost a mile of fine white sand and clear blue waters this is an idyllic spot to (literally!) chill out and relax.

Hoddevik is widely considered to be Norway's best surfing beach (yes, they have surf in Norway!) and is home to two surf camps; Stad Surfing and the Lapoint Surf School.
