Lofoten Adventure Week - Summer
The Lofoten Islands are located just north of the Arctic Circle where you find the sea on one side and the dramatic mountains on the other, offering great views everywhere you look. The arcipelago offer a number of activities, such as walking, cycling, diving, excursions by hire car, sea safaris and much more. Lofoten is one of our favourite destinations along the long Norwegian coast.
One of the world’s greatest seasonal fisheries takes place in Lofoten in spring, and the place is full of life. The arctic cod swim down from the vast, nutritious areas of the Barents Sea in their millions, en route to the spawning grounds near Lofoten in order to ensure the survival of the species. Overhead you will see huge Sea Eagles soar in search of their own feast.
The world’s most stunning archipelago is waiting for you!
