An archipelago in the northern part of Norway, Lofoten offers some absolutely stunning scenery in what is often described as one of the most scenic parts of Norway. Stay in our Lofoten hostels to see picture-postcard small fishing villages nestled in fjords, coastlines dominated by high mountains, white sandy beaches and restored fishermen's cabins. Go hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, fishing or scuba diving. Experience the Viking Age at Lofotr Viking Museum. Go on a nature safari and see if you can spot some killer whales. Go in search of the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), a remarkable natural light display in the night sky. Try some tasty stockfish, an unsalted fish dried by the sun and wind and an important cultural heritage of Lofoten. And, if you visit in the summer, don’t forget this is the land of the midnight sun - best viewed from the western beaches.
