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.

You must see Lofoten! The Lofoten in the south is fairly "touristified", so dont miss the not so "ouristified" peninsula in the north Vasteralen/Andoya. Especially the western part of Andoya facing the Atlantic is magificent. The go on a whale safari from Andenes harbour...

Not many people around on these islands, where nature is still at its very best. Gettng around can be done by bike or on foot but a car makes it much easier. Not so many lodging infrastructures available.

These islands are incredibly beautiful. We only spent one day but could have stayed longer. We rented a car and were glad we did. There is a bus but you would need plenty of time to see everything

If you plan to visit Lofoten and get to know this area, plan at least 5 days. I couldn´t drive more than 70 km on some days, since I had to stop every 3 km for a picture! Raftsundet, Solvaer, Henningsvaer, Reine, Å, between many more sights you shouldn´t absolutely miss! Fingers crossed to get a wonderful weather and swim... More

We came to the Lofoten Islands on a cruise ship. We arrived on summer solstice and the weather was wonderful sunny and about 50F. We tendered to the pier in Gravdal located in the center of the Lofoten Islands on the Busksnes Fjord and spent the day sightseeing. The scenerary is gorgeous with rugged mountains, green pastures, and beautiful sandy... More
