Lofoten Island, Nordland

(4.9/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • As would say English, breathtaking. We did a half day excursion (very little, deserves much more) and we were impressed by its incredible landscapes, seems you are in Skyrim

  • Fantastic! What a natural beauty. 8 days on tour and enjoyed a to z. recommends: nature safari with sea eagles in svolvaer, orca with RIB boat in andenes and the northern lights hunt with lofoten aktiv. Great excursions!!! Further fun during a tour: henningvaer, saupstad beaches, eggum, nusfjord, the old coastal road at Valberg, Reine and a. If you love snow, mountains, sea and nature then this is the place. We slept in an old fishing cottage Svinoya Rorbuer in Svolvaer. Quite charming. Restaurant Balachandran Spiseri is also fantastic-local products and nice wine list. Really a top destination!
