The Lofoten archipelago consist of 7 main islands, with fjords and narrow straits in between the islands.
From a distance the archipelago looks like one steep island–called the Lofot wall.
The Lofoten Islands are one of the most stunning areas of Norway. This is where majestic mountains meet brilliantly white sandy beaches, fishing villages dot the coastlines and hiking trails crisscross their way through some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Europe.
The archipelago is known for its exceptional natural beauty, picturesque fishing settlements and an abundant wildlife.
Hiking in summer & off-piste skiing down the steep mountain sides are popular activities.
A high density of sea eagles and cormorants, and millions of other sea birds, like the colorful puffin, populate the islands, with mainland Europe’s largest seabird colony.
