Play with your senses in some of the most stunning surroundings in the world.
Like here, in Henningsvær.
... because in Lofoten, you can have fun with your friends 24 hours a day, under the midnight sun ...
... or catch the northern lights from September to March.
Play with the wind ...
Climb the famous Svolværgeita — or try one of the many recommended hikes in the area.
A professional guide can share the best places and stories with you!
Don't forget that the view from the smoother coastal trails or wild valleys can be just as rewarding!
Maybe today is your lucky day?
You are in Lofoten — of course you have to go on a fishing trip! Who will end up catching today’s dinner?
You will also find local fishermen alongside hipsters and art lover’s in the idyllic fishing village of Henningsvær, where you can experience some early holiday vibes during the famous Førjulseventyret in November and December.
Here, you can also ...
... play with your creative mind.
What brings works by some of the world’s most renowned artists, like Ai Weiwei, Olafur Eliasson and Yoko Ono to Lofoten ... ?
KaviarFactory, Lofoten’s unique venue for world class contemporary art!
... because Lofoten also has a vibrant art scene.
In almost every little village, you will find a gallery or an artisian, experimenting with the colors and shapes that Lofoten inspires. Like here in Glasshytta Vikten.
Play with time.
Get to know the first skilled craftsmen that settled in Lofoten.
Travel back in time at the Lofotr viking museum at Borg, where you also can try rowing a real viking ship.
The Vikings also started another unique local tradition, that is still done in very much the same way today, so you can ...
... play with your senses.
What is that scent? Well, it’s the smell of money! And yes, of stockfish.
Every year, between February and March, the migrating Atlantic cod, the skrei, comes to Lofoten to spawn.
This is the fish that built Norway ...
... and it’s still able to play with your taste buds.
Try it grilled, baked, cooked, dry — or even as a pizza topping! And don’t forget to try the DOC-sertified "Lofotlam" lamb meat, too.
Stay in a rorbu, a fisherman’s cabin right by the sea. Enjoy a hot sauna – and maybe an even hotter moment with your loved one later on ...
... or play it cool.
Lofoten in the winter is a snowy paradise! You can try ski touring (always go with a local guide), or surf, go dog sledding or just stroll around in this otherworldly landscape.
In Svolvær, called "the smallest big city in the world", and the biggest in Lofoten, you can play with more urban vibes.
Packed with great museums, restaurants and shops ...
... and the departing point for day cruises to the famous Trollfjord (pictured) and a lot of other activities.
Do you hear music playing? Remember to check if there is a festival going on somewhere nearby!
From Svolvær, you can also take the ferry to the "sunshine island" of Skrova.
Or play on an even more remote island.
For an adventure in truly pristine surroundings, take the ferry to the dramatic landscapes of Værøy (pictured) or the "opera island" of Røst.
Come and play!
