Lofoten runs from Å to Raftsundet (E 10) with detours to Nusfjord (fv. 807), Vikten (fv. 811), Utakleiv (fv. 825), Unstad (fv. 992), Eggum (fv. 994) and Henningsvær (fv. 807). This is a total distance of 230 km.
Regardless of the time of year, Lofoten provides a journey amid breathtaking natural surroundings. The landscape is both beautiful and stark. However there are sheltered, protected stretches that can provide some relief from the raw, exposed areas that show their harshness when the wind is blowing hard. The combination of the untamed ocean and stormy seas, jagged alpine mountains plunging into the water, tiny sheltered fishing villages and white beaches with crystal clear waters will never cease to enchant us. That’s also the reason why the road can be so busy in the high season. Then it’s good to know that you can seek out little, secluded corners and fine detours along the route.
There are also many tourists who have discovered that winter can be just as beautiful as summer. The Arctic winter is the perfect time to see the northern lights, an overwhelming play of light and colour. You are guaranteed a unique experience with fewer people to share it with. No matter what time of year you decide to visit Lofoten, you will experience its distinctive qualities, and for many people Lofoten leaves lasting memories. If you are a fitness enthusiast who at worst can put up with a puff of wind or a shower of rain, cycling is a good alternative to driving on Lofote
