10 book towns where literature is alive and well MORE:

Fjærland is Norway’s book town. Located deep in the country’s fjordlands, this village of 300 is a base for people who want to explore the surruonding scenic area and hike on the nearby glaciers, which are only a 10-minute drive away. The historic center of Fjærland is called Mundal . It features a glacier museum and a number of book dealers situated around a century-old wooden guesthouse called Hotel Mundal. Books are sold in so-called book cafes and in converted boat houses, barns and even in a bus stop. The book town, which is Norway’s "official" book town , operates during the warmer months, so readers should come between May and mid-September. During this time, tourists can also take fjord cruises, kayak trips through the nearby delta ( a haven for birdwatchers), glacier treks and even try to swim in the (admittedly cold) glacial waters.
