Lofoten means the foot of the lynx.
The Lofoten archipelago, to the north of the Arctic Circle, evokes images of a virgin Scandinavian nature, and stretches of breathtaking landscapes. With its mountains notched by fjords, its rolling meadows and fishing villages nestled in coves, the Lofoten match perfectly with what they suggest. It is a complete destination, which seems to exist for the simple pleasure of contemplation. But it is also suitable for sports enthusiasts looking for outdoor sensations, travelers seeking the charm of charming addresses and even bird enthusiasts.
And the few transient rains – to which the Lofoten owe this dense vegetation, of an intense green – are quickly swept by a pure blue sky!
