Lofoten Archipelago

Lofoten is a paradise for scenery, fishing and activities.

Lofoten consists of a string of islands stretching out of the Nordland region in northern Norway. Despite its northern location within the Arctic Circle (66°north) Lofoten's climate is unusually mild, which makes it an eldorado for birds and life in the sea with the world's largest deep water coral reef.

Most of the towns and municipalities of Lofoten are traditional fishing communities, and many of these are very much still alive. The Lofoten islands are one of the main attractions of Norway with its characteristic island peaks that reach up to thousand metres straight out of the sea. In many of the old fishing villages you can stay in small fishing cottages (Rorbu) on stilts over the water. This is an excellent way to intimately experience this island fishing community.

There is lots to see and do, from adventurous activities like walking, trekking, sea kayaking and cycling, to attractions like the Lofoten Viking Museum and of course the midnight sun (May 25 to July 17).
