and the swiss made a mark! Jul 29, 2012
Eggum Fortress has some of the best views in all of Lofoten and Norway..

The fort itself on top of the hill , the sea , the animals , the fjord , the mountains , the trail , the grass , the stones , the campers , the locals and other travellers as myself..

Some of the greatest most dramatic scenery I've seen so far!

The sculpture of "THE HEAD" is amazing.

Made out of iron and granite.

Hangs out at the height of 178 cm.

The sculpture on Eggum changes its form - and thus also its content - 16 times as the viewer walks around the sculpture. From one viewing

angle, it looks like a classical portrait, and from another the head is seen upside down.

Worth the trip!

It takes a few times ti circle the statue , and to get a good picture of every new form it takes is even harder , but again - so amazingly handmade..

About 2 km from the village itself.
