There is something quite magical about The magical Lofoten Norway. At a glance it looks like the landscape from Jurassic Park but a closer look will tell you that these wooden houses wouldn’t stand up to dinosaurs very well.

Travel down the road further and you might think you are on an island in Thailand, however there would not be a need for a goose feather down jacket in Thailand. You can of course get a hot summer day in Lofoten but that is more by luck rather than judgement. I would describe Lofoten as a place everyone should get to go to at least twice in their lives. Once in Spring/Summer and once in Winter to discover it’s many beautiful forms.

Lofoten is well known for excellent fishing, nature attractions such as the northern lights and the midnight sun. You can even Kayak between the islands, go fishing for the biggest fish you have seen in your life, or look for sea eagles soaring in the sky. It has a strong connection to the Viking Age, and at Lofotr Viking Museum you can experience the Viking Age as it really was
