Come to Lofoten!

According to British newspaper The Observer, the Lofoten islands offer the world's second most fabulous castaway experience.

2 Lofoten Islands, Norway
Nowhere does the midnight sun shine to greater effect than on Norway's Lofoten Islands, anchored above the Arctic Circle. Their purple mountains and green meadows, bright fishing boats and rust-red cottages on stilts are mirrored in Caribbean-blue sea. Edgar Allen Poe described the seas around as 'lashed into ungovernable fury... the bed of waters seamed and scarred into a thousand conflicting channels bursts into frenzied convulsion - heaving, boiling, hissing'.

The main tourist islands, Austvagoy, Vestvagoy, Flakstad and Moskenes, appeal to writers and artists as well as outdoor enthusiasts, with climbing, hiking, riding, canoeing, biking, rafting and fishing highly popular. Puffins, cormorants, guillemots, eagles and seals bring in the wildlife watchers. For anyone with Viking ancestry a visit to the new Viking museum at Borg is a must.

· Inntravel (01653 629000; inntravel.co.uk) offers three-night breaks by air in winter for £649 half-board; a self-catering summer week starts at £860.


I first reazd about this in Norwegian newspapers; I found the link to the newspaper-article at bortinatta's LJ.
