Lofoten Island, Nordland

4.9
#1 of 25 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.

    Unfortunately I couldn't admire the lofoten Islands in all its beauty, because time has betrayed us (and on this we can not do anything). many shades of gray and little sun. Despite this beautiful. peace and tranquility beyond normal. wonderful with the Sun and the snow and the short days
