Lofoten are fabulous and storybook-like islands in the North Atlantic that offer stunning impressions, unique views and unforgettable travel experiences.
If you come to these islands you feel the original ambiance of ancient and traditional Norwegian life.
An awesome landscape including high mountains, sharp rocks and green hills, little and narrow villages with those typical red wooden huts that are built on piles above the salty water and local codfish industry are just some of many interesting facets to discover.
Lofoten are the ideal spot to leave all the daily stress behind and dip into the pool of majestic surroundings combined with the friendliness of local fishermen and relaxing village life.
As a stranger you easily get the feeling of staying in a different but absolutely charming world. You’re able to drive along the coast and visit countless of neat villages that you can reach thanks to the modern Lofoten Road that also connects three of the main islands with each other.
Especially outdoor activities like cycling, mountaineering, rock climbing, fishing, watching sea birds and experiencing National Park atmosphere have priority among a lot of tourists, which means the islands are the perfect destination for every nature lover. Besides a trip to Lofoten is definitely a different worthwhile way of island hopping!
I totally recommend a short trip to this idyllic range and don’t forget to bring your camera because one fantastic view is followed by another astonishing silhouette!
