This is the most beautiful place I have ever had the chance to experience. I was blessed with the weather as I know it frequently has the chance to rain, and was also fortunate enough to camp here consecutively for 7 days. If you are tolerable of camping take my advice and please camp here as its the best place... More

Svolvaer is incredibly beautiful and has lots to offer. We visited Svolvaer in Jan'16 and stayed at Lofoten Feriesenter. I would highly recommend everyone who visits Svolvaer to stay in these beautiful cabins that overlooks the snow mountains, ski track and a frozen lake. An extremely peaceful location, this place is just 3 KMS away from the port. While Svolvaer... More

We had cloudy weather but still the photos were post card perfect. Great riding roads for the motorcycle, friendly people and great places to stay. Get a reservation first as this is a destination for Norwegians and visitors alike.

It was only till the moment when I hiked to the top of Reinebringen, looking at village below, I realized what a breath taking place. I believe this is the place everyone should visit at least once in his/her lifetime. I'm sure I'll be back again :-)

When the sun shines, there is no better place on earth. We visisted A and Nusfjord, two very nice and classified fishermens harbours. Nature is lovely, the sky is so pure, the colours so explicit, this is the world on his best.

Lofoten is known for excellent nature attractions, small villages, some of its most magical landscapes and a truly wonderful atmosphere. I visited the Lofoten Islands in Aug'15. We went to see Trollfjord in Svolvær it was soooooo beautiful. From Bodo we went in Cruise to Stamsund and then we drove all over in Lofoten. Guys trust me it's more than... More

Amazing nature and people! There is so much to see that a week I spent there was not even close to enough. Do hike and check out the white beaches! Visit during summer so you can experience sunsets like no where else!

We booked a RIB trip. The guide was adorable. Lots of information. We stopped for a small snack on one of the islands. Very interesting information from our guide about everyday living in this part of the world. We would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't been raining much of the time.
