About The Lofoten Islands

Where Are The Lofoten Islands?

 

The Lofoten Islands are an archipelago of islands above the arctic circle in northern Norway. Despite its location way up north, Lofoten’s position on the Gulf Stream means that it has a milder climate than Greenland and Alaska, despite being at the same latitude. The winters are relatively mild and the summers are cool. The largest of the Lofoten islands are linked to the mainland via a 186-mile highway. The largest town is Svolvær, which is where most people head to first, and where most of the Lofoten tours depart from.

How To Get There

 

There are many ways to get to Lofoten. The closest international airports are Narvik, Tromsø and Kiruna (in Sweden). From these airports, your best option is to hire a car and drive. It is possible to get domestic flights to Svolvær and Leknes but if you want to rent a car for whilst you are in Lofoten, you’ll find it more difficult if you fly to these. From mainland Noway, it is also possible to reach Lofoten by ferry from Bodø. There are also public buses every day from Narvik, Bodø, and Harstad to Svolvær.

When To Visit

 

Being above the arctic circle, Lofoten experiences quite extreme seasons. In the summertime, from end-May until end-July you can experience the “midnight sun” with almost 24 hours of daylight. In complete contrasts, the winters are long and dark. The long nights, however, increase your chances of witnessing the magnificent northern lights, which can often be seen from September through to April. Snow covers much of Lofoten over the winter months, with hiking and climbing being possible from July onwards.
