Lofoten is a spectacular archipelago in the northern part of Norway, famous for midnight sun, northern lights, sea and mountains.

Far out in the Northern Atlantic Ocean, Lofoten is an archipelago on the North West coast of Norway just north of the Arctic Circle.

Lofoten is one of those special places on Earth with untouched natural splendor, an abundance of fish in the sea and an incredible wildlife all around. More than anything, the Lofoten Islands are characterized by a craggy coastline with awe-inspiring mountains towering over pristine sand beaches.
