Idyllic archipelago north of the Arctic Circle

The Lofoten archipelago belongs to Norway and lies about 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle in the Atlantic Ocean.

Lofoten can be reached by mainland ferry from Fiskebøl to Gullesfjordbottn or by ferry.

Northern Norway from its most beautiful side

The landscape of Lofoten is characterised by fjords, rivers, rugged cliffs and high alpine mountains. The result is an overall picture of typically Nordic maritime nature of remarkable beauty, in which picturesque fishing villages blend harmoniously. An offshoot of the Gulf Stream provides a temperate, relatively mild climate. In winter, Lofoten is one of the best places to observe the northern lights.

Travelers and Activities

Lofoten for active people

With its overwhelming, partly wild and untouched nature, Lofoten is an ideal terrain for all those who enjoy outdoor activities. The varied landscape with mountains and sea offers almost all sports possibilities you can imagine. Hiking, cycling, diving, mountaineering and kayaking are particularly popular. From June to September is the best time to be on the move in Lofoten Outdoor.

Lofoten for anglers

Fishing has been a tradition and livelihood of Lofoten for thousands of years. A true paradise for passionate anglers who come to the islands in winter, when huge schools of cod migrate from the Barents Sea to Lofoten between January and April to spawn in the warm Vestfjod. Thanks to the ancient Norwegian "Everyman's Right", fishing at sea is permitted without a permit.

The Norwegian name "Lofoten" means "lynx foot".
