Visited late one evening in the middle of a snow storm. Magical place. The fish drying racks are enormous and I imagine it's quite a sight to see them full of fish ...although I'm not sure about the smell

There’s a fisherman’s village with a couple of restaurants and shops, they might be closed in off season or winter holidays. Nearby there’s Svolvær, with hotels, restaurants, bars, and from here you can take the cruise that goes all the way til Bergen.

Lofoten is one of the most beautiful places in Norway I have ever been, with its connection of islands, the most charming villages with their red "rorbu" huts, and piercing mountains. You can easily spend weeks here although it only takes about 2 hours from...More

Cold, wet, rainy, windy, and dreary ... that sums up our impression of Lofoten. Homes hover over the water on stilts (called "rorbus") and cod migrate here to spawn. Enough said.

I would suggest you get to Trondheim by plane and then look at RometoRio on your browser. It will give you all the alternatives. We found it very reliable getting around Norway.
