Lofoten Island, Nordland
(4.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Lofoten Island and other Reine attractions into our Reine vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Landscapes of nature and the multi-colored facades of houses give unimaginable excitement. Travelling around Lofoten is an unforgettable and a real adventure. Colors of nature and weather are here as with a science fiction movie, it's hard to believe that they are real. Photos and descriptions will not give what remains in the US who were here.
