Lofoten code of conduct

1. CAMP IN DESIGNATED AREAS

2. LEAVE NO TRACE

Avoid leaving traces in nature, such as cairns, tent pegs etc. Allow others to have the same great experience that you've had.

3. FOLLOW THE PATH AND AVOID THE CREATION OF NEW PATHS

4. THROW WASTE IN THE WASTE BINS

If you are in an area without bins, bring your waste with you until you can dispose of it.

5. USE PUBLIC TOILETS

If none are present, go in the ocean or dig a pit in the ground.

Avoid using wet wipes, as they take a long time to decompose.

6. RESPECT PRIVATE PROPERTY

Camping closer than 150 metres from an occupied house or cabin is forbidden.

You can only camp on cultivated land if you have an agreement with the landowner.

7. BE CONSIDERATE IN TRAFFIC

The roads in Lofoten are narrow, yet many use them. Keep well clear of cyclists when passing them. Be especially mindful of bicycles in tunnels.

8. BAN ON FIRES

During the summer months, there is a general ban on open fires.

Use designated sites for fire, and make sure there is no risk for a forest fire.

9. RESPECT WILDLIFE

Avoid disturbing animals unnecessarily. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.

10. IN THE INTEREST OF THE ENVIRONMENT, as well as your own experience and safety, we recommend activities organised by a tour operator.
