Winter in the Lofotens, a selfguided tour!
Self guided trip - 6 days or more (Norway)
Yes, let's face it, the Lofoten Islands are nowadays a fashionable destination. However, even if a growing number of travelers come to explore the archipelago during the summer season, you will still be able to hike in stunning landscapes and real wilderness, as it is preserved from so-called "mass tourism" .
The verdant landscapes, with their turquoise waters, attract the majority of visitors from May to September. The arctic winter - with its crystal clear light, snow-capped peaks and northern lights – attracts professional photographers from all over the world but is still relativly unknown to a majority of travelers. Yet the archipelago is definitely worth a detour at this time of year. Indeed, it is in winter that the islands awaken from their calm torpor, with the start of the fishing season. From February onwards, the blue waters of the Vestfjord are covered with a constellation of small fishing boats.
