Drive till the end Apr 10, 2013
The Lofoten islands are located in the Northern part of Norway. The islands are a combination of big mountains with lovely villages in between. When you take the way (number E10) you will pass it all.

During your trip you can stop over several place to watch at the beautiful scenery or take a look in the lovely villages.

At the end of the route lies the village À, there is 'the end of the world'.

From Moskenes (a village just before À) you can take a very to the mainland of Norway. But when you don't get enough of the nice landscapes it is also recommended to take the same way back to the mainland. Than you can enjoy the route twice.

Gorgeous islands! Jun 24, 1997
Lofoten are amazing and storybook-like islands in the North Atlantic that offer stunning impressions, unique views and unforgettable travel experiences.

If you come to these islands you feel the original atmosphere of ancient and traditional Norwegian life.


A fascinating landscape including high mountains, sharp rocks and green hills, little and narrow villages with those typical red wooden houses that are built on piles above the salty water and local codfish industry are just a few of many interesting facets to discover.


Lofoten are the ideal place to leave all the daily stress behind and dip into a pool of majestic surroundings combined with the friendliness of local fishermen and relaxing village life.

As a stranger you easily get the feeling of staying in a different but very charming world. You’re able to drive along the coast and visit countless of neat villages that you can reach thanks to the modern Lofoten Road that also connects three of the main islands with each other.

Especially outdoor activities like cycling, mountaineering, rock climbing, fishing, watching sea birds and experiencing National Park atmosphere have priority among many tourists, which means the islands are the perfect destination for every nature lover.


All in all a trip to Lofoten is definitely a different but absolutely fabulous way of island hopping – just try it out!

I can really recommend a trip to this idyllic range and don’t forget your camera because one awesome view is followed by another astonishing silhouette!

Great pics and nice writting :)
I've been to the Lofoten in 2004. Although the weather was very bad I had a great time. I even saw the midnight sun which was very special.
