What can you do when the city is ugly and is accused for lacking a soul? Well, you could add colour to it... Paint the city blue, for instance. About 50,000 litres of paint will be used to create a bright, light and delicate atmosphere. Sortland is now referred to as "The Blue City"...

The Vesterålen islands were connected to eachother by several bridges. This strengthened Sortland´s place as a meeting place, a trading centre and even a cultural centre. Sortland is Vesterålen´s leading shopping centre. The range of shops, services and cultural activities is so great that you could believe yourself in a medium sized Norwegian city. It is no accident that retail turnover per inhabitant in Sortland is greater than in any other town in North Norway. Sortland is one of the few North Norwegian towns that have grown in the 80´s and 90´s, the result of a conscious decision to create a high standard of services in a pleasant place to live.
