BEACHES OF LOFOTEN
Hidden between the rugged, vertical mountains and wild coastline of the Lofoten Islands are some of Norway’s most scenic beaches. Whether they are vast stretches of sand which bask in the light of the midnight sun during summer, or quiet stretches reflecting the northern lights in winter, Lofoten is as much a beach destination as a hiking one.
For the brave, a dip in the chilly arctic waters might be the highlight of your Lofoten trip. While for others, climbing that steep mountain ridge to look down on the beach now far below you will be a lifelong memory. The beauty of Lofoten is that the beaches can be enjoyed from the sea to the surrounding mountain summits. Sometimes, the toughest decision is deciding which view you like better!
I wrote this guide to show you the beauty of Lofoten’s beaches, covering everything from the scenic roadside destinations to the hidden gems, reached only after hours of hiking. Beaches Of Lofoten serves as both a practical guide as well as visual inspiration to help you discover the best of what Lofoten’s beaches have to offer.
