A place to stay between Kiruna and

I am looking for a nice place stay about halfway between kiruna and the Lofoten islands.

We are planning to visit Norway on September. We will be driving from Kiruna (in Sweden) to the Lofotan islands. We plan to divide the drive in to two days and stay 1-2 nights somewhere along the way.

Thank you

Kiruna to Svolvær is around 6h drive, I would prefer to do it in 1 day and spend the extra day or two in Lofoten.

There are not many places in-between that I would recommend for stopping. If you must stop, here are 2 options:

Sandtorgholmen Hotel: http://www.sandtorgholmen.no/ (hotel in historic buildings, expensive)

Brygga Hotell, Lødingen: http://www.brygga-hotell.no/

Thank you!

The reason I thought to stop is because I don't know the quality of the roads and how congested they might be So I wanted to leave some room for problems.

Are the roads easy to drive, even if it is rainy, or there is fog?

Congested roads in North Norway - that is certainly not the case. Main roads are not difficult to drive at all. It is normally not foggy in September, but it is often a rainy month.

Last year late September

The playground is just next to where I live in summer - on the island of Rolla - 45 minutes ferry ride from Harstad.

Thanks for the info ! I checked on the map and we might not make it there (haven't decided yet where we'll go around tromso). Are large children playgrounds the norm in upcountry Norway, even though they might look a little less amazing than the one on the pic ?
