Lofoten is known for excellent fishing and nature attractions, small villages off the beaten track and whale safaris. You can explore by foot, go rafting, visit the Lofotr Viking Museum, taste stockfish and be amazed by the midnight sun.
Nature Safaris /Every autumn the herring and killer whales swim up the Tysfjord and Vestfjord to spend the winter.
The Northern Lights /Lofoten is one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights.

In Literature /Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “A Descent into the Maelström” tells the story of a man who survived his ship being drawn into and swallowed by Moskstraumen. Johan Bojer’s novel “The Last of the Vikings” (1922) tells the story of the Lofoten cod fishermen.
Absolutely beautiful! I just came back travelling from the Lofoten about three weeks ago and I also did a lot of hikes. Maybe a tip for our fellow travellers: http://www.hiking-lofoten.net was very useful for determining my hikes.
