Lofoten Island, Nordland
Categories: Islands, Nature & Parks
Lofoten Island represents a traditional fishing district famed for its landscape featuring mountain peaks, sheep pastures, sheltered coves, small villages, and the midnight sun. Sitting within the Arctic Circle, all islands of the archipelago are linked by road bridges and tunnels. The island offers several locations for surfing and wildlife safaris, plus a well-marked cycling route. Go whale watching, mountain hiking, or rock climbing. Old fishermen's cabins equipped with modern utilities offer lodging to travelers. Look for the sculpture by Dan Graham near the waterfront, made of transparent, concave mirrored walls reflecting the images of the blue sea, clear sky, and steep mountains.

The Lofoten landscape is truly indescribable even if only from the top you can admire in his immeasurable beauty of the archipelago, the sharp rocks and impressive and the color-changing from emerald green sea, blue and reddish during sunset.

Fishing and tourism are the only local resources. The journey by car or bus allows you to meet the legendary and celebrated landscapes. Here indeed sometimes you get lost and you get confused between sea, fjords, beaches, lakes, harbours, picturesque villages of farmers, fishing villages, forests and glaciers to 1400 msl jutting into the sea! All this in addition to a flora and fauna that surprises you like when you were a kid (reindeer in the meadows and along the way, hares, pheasants, seagulls,-broom, Oaks, beeches, Oaks, conifers, mushrooms-granite rocks and sedimentary rocks). Lots of green, so much blue sky, Sunshine (fortunately!), so transparent sea, lots of scented air to clean; everything really lovely or simply wonderful. It's inevitable if you love created considering that three rounds to visit these places are just adequate.show original

However, I would choose these islands, along the North of Norway, for spending a relaxing vacation and can devote to things which for reasons of time on this trip I couldn't help, how long trekking excursions lasting several days experiencing the free camping, surrounded by nature, away from it all, or at the seaside. Beautiful beaches and lush interior: respect everyone's but, in my opinion, this is a place of Norway that you can't avoid visiting.show original
