Lofoten Island, Norway
Strung across the dramatic Norwegian Sea, high above the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten Islands look spectacular. With deep fjords and magnificent mountains, this is a wilderness unequalled in its beauty, where giant sea eagles soar and all is at peace.
Milder in climate than their position suggests, visitors are drawn to the islands to experience the Northern Lights and Midnight Sun at close quarters, and for those keen to get back to nature and escape the beaten track, there can be nowhere better.
Savour the calm and the quiet, the great outdoors all around and always something special to see and do. For a real treat, we recommend kayaking between islands before finding a nice quiet restaurant and enjoying the fresh ingredients that are a speciality. Fish is always on the menu — and nowhere does it taste finer than here.
