MAKE PLANNING EASY, PAY LESS & EXPERIENCE MORE

Welcome to Lofoten!

Lofoten is located in northern Norway about 300 km to the north of the Arctic Circle and about 1,400km to the north of Norway´s capitol Oslo. 

The Lofoten islands offer steep mountains, rugged peaks, stunning white-sand beaches, and picturesque fishing villages. 

With northern lights dancing on the sky in winter and spectacular midnight sun in the summer, words fail to do justice to the magnificent Lofoten archipelago.
