Coast and coastal culture

Coast and coastal culture

The coastline of Norway is long, stretching from an idyllic archipelago in the south, to a wild and untamed meeting between land and sea in the north.

The Lofoten Islands

Lofoten is known for excellent fishing and nature attractions, small villages off the beaten track and whale safaris.

Stay at a fishermen’s cabin

Along the Norwegian coast, particularly in Trøndelag and Nordland, rorbu cabins have been restored and turned into modern accommodation.

Lighthouses offering accommodation can be found all along the coast of Norway, from Vardø in the north to the Grimstad in the south.
