NORWAY: Nordland: Lofoten islands
56 images Created 28 Sep 2011
The "Norwegian traditional district" known as Lofoten is a beautiful archipelago of islands within the Arctic Circle in the county of Nordland, Norway. Explore the scenic towns of Svolvaer, Stamsund, Nusfjord, Hamnøy, Sakrisøy, Reine, and Å. Admire vistas of Torsfjorden and Selfjorden. Above Reine village, ascend a harrowingly steep trail to Reinebringen for spectacular views of sharply glaciated peaks surrounding Reinefjord, on Moskenesøya (the Moskenes Island). Take a passenger ferry on scenic Reinefjord to Vindstad for a fun and easy walk to Bunes Beach.
