Lofoten Islands - Self Catering

In terms of dramatic marine and mountain scenery it doesn't get much better than this!

The Lofoten Islands are a large group of islands located on a rocky peninsular inside the Arctic Circle. Dramatic mountain scenery in an outstanding marine environment. The Lofoten Islands are steeped in tradition and history. Fishing, Viking History and the sami culture all have an important part to play in everyday life on the Lofoten Islands.

You will see 'drying racks' where fish is still dried in the old fashioned manner, traditional fisherman's cabins (rorbeur) and small villages surrounding scenic harbours, protected by snowcapped mountains.

The Lofoten Islands - they have to be seen to be believed.

You will find stunning scenery around the Lofoten Islands at any time of year. Activities and excursions vary considerably throughout the year. Travel during the summer for long summer days and the midnight sun. Travel during the winter for snowy mountains and the Northern Lights (best seen October to March).
