Lofoten are the best known location in Nordland. The archipelago is world famous for its red wooden houses built on tall poles in water, called ‘rorbuer’. The islands are equally loved for their natural beauty – rocky mountains towering over narrow, emerald-watered fjords, spectacular white sandy beaches. No wonder they’re listed as number 1 on many tourists’ bucket list. They definitely were on our bucket list!
We ensured to have a lot of time to explore Lofoten islands during our trip to Norway. We really wanted to be sure that we had additional days to wait for bad weather to pass or to add more hikes and points of interest which we might learn about while already on the islands.
Below we are sharing the best hikes, walks and places of interest in Lofoten. We enjoyed them a lot, although weather conditions we encountered in Lofoten were less than average.
