Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands are an archipelago located off of northwestern Norway.

The islands are best known for their majestic scenery, with a coastline dominated by high mountains cut by fjords, and scattered sandy white beaches.

The region’s fishing history is evident in the villages around the coast, primarily focused on the cod attracted by the food brought by the Gulf Stream. At the end of the spring, thousands of tons of cod are hung to dry on wooden racks

The Lofoten Islands still have many traditional red fisherman cabins built on the sea shore or over stilts, and some are available for rent.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
