Northern Norway is by far the largest and most sparsely populated part of mainland Norway, and covers more than a third of the country.
The archipelago of Vesterålen is a place characterized by contrasts, from white beaches and idyllic farmlands to craggy mountain peaks rising from the sea.
Visit the archipelago of Vesterålen, inhabited by whales, seals, and seabirds. Situated just north of the Lofoten Islands, this peaceful region has a strong fishing culture, lots of interesting art to explore, and a front row seat to the northern lights.
Lofoten is known for excellent fishing, spectacular nature attractions such as the northern lights and the midnight sun, and small villages off the beaten track. Kayak between the islands or go fishing for the catch of your life.
