About Uttakleiv Beach

Uttakleiv is perhaps Norway's most photographed beach, and you will understand why when you get there. Depending on the season you can just sit down at the beach and watch the sunset, the northern lights or the storms and waves coming in from the Atlantic Ocean. And although you probably will not be alone this is a perfect spot for some overnight camping. 

If you choose to stay here consider also hiking up to Mannen or Himmeltinden.
