Langsand beach on Sandhornøya

This trip goes to the beautiful Langsand Beach on Sandhornøya in Gildeskål municipality.

The drive to Langsand is a nice road trip by itself, as you are surrounded by gorgeous Northern Norwegian nature with the sea, forests, and high mountains along the road to and on Sandhornøya. There are also several other small beaches you can check out on the way to Langsand and elsewhere on the island
