Lofoten Island, Nordland

4.9
#1 of 91 in Parks in Nordland
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.

  • Lofoten during this period offer snowscapes and frozen sea of innumerable shades, small villages are suggestive species at dusk and if on stilts create reflections in the water artistic deep blue archipelago. In the evening you always hope to see and capture the "Dancing Lady" — the fabled northern lights

  • We have been to lofoten just a day and we realized that it really wanred too little. Among fishing villages, treks up to admire breathtaking, isolated locations and various wonders one day is not enough. You have to go slow and be at least 2/3 days, for us it was a leg of a tour that lasted too short unfortunately. But for sure we will return
