Activities when visiting the Arctic Lofoten islands - www.lofoten.info Welcome to Lofoten – «the world's most beautiful islands» according to the National Geographic. The two main ports is Leknes and Svolvær. The five main islands are linked by road and you can easily cross all five and return in a day. Lofoten is dotted with picturesque villages and fish-drying racks, as stockfish – dried cod – has been the main export since the Middle Ages. Visit for example Lofotr Viking Museum and other museums, taste local food, participate in activities or just learn more about local history and culture.
