Ornes, Norway
Just north of the Arctic Circle, Ornes is located in the Meloy municipality of Norway and stands as the administrative center for the region. The town is small with a population of only 1,538 residents, but it is said to have one of the most beautiful entrances in Norway. The tiny village is home to the Urnes stave church, which is considered to be the oldest of its kind, dating to 1130; it features a unique combination of Christian architecture and animal carvings and ornamentation characteristic of the Viking age. Mountains in the area are perfect for fishing, hunting and skiing, and the second largest glacier in Norway, Svartisen, is a short distance away from the town center. Additional tourist areas include nearby Mosvolldalen and Spilderdalen, which offer remarkable scenery and outdoor activity.
