Why go to Lofoten?

Well, if you for some reason are of the oponion that the nature in Norway is beautiful, then know that a lot of Norwegians consider the Lofoten archipelago to be the best part of our nature. Some call it the most beutiful islands in the world.

I made a video from our vacation in Lofoten. 8 days in the Lofoten archipelago where we hiked different mountains and explored different areas and attractions. The following hikes were completed and are part of this video: Møysalen (Vesterålen), Mulstøheia, Reinebringen, Festvågtinden, Nubben, Kvalvika, Ryten, Fuglehuk, Middagstinden, Volandstinden, Markvatnet, Skottinden and Fløya with Djevelporten and Svolværgeita. We also stopped by the beach at Ramberg, the fishing village Nusfjord and some other small towns.

Feel free to check out the video from Lofoten, and let me know if you have any questions :)
