Bronnoysund is the administrative and commercial center of Bronnoy municipality in Nordland County, Norway. The original inhabitants were wiped out in a massacre during the medieval-era Norwegian civil wars. Immigrants from southern Norway, Trondelag and Sweden then repopulated the region, which might explain the unique dialect. In recent years, Bronnoysund has managed to create a certain economic growth and continues to be a very prosperous region. Highlights include the famous Torghatten mountain, with its characteristic hole through the middle; Skarsasen, a German fortress that dates to World War II; and the largest limestone mine in Northern Europe. Bronnoysund has mild winters considering the northern location, and a long frost-free season. Daytime temperatures are usually warmer during March through October.
