Lofoten Islands are definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Beyond Australia, I don't remember a place that wowed me so much!
I've been dreaming about them for so long, read about everything, watched thousands of pictures and videos. But I swear, nothing compares to the emotion of being there, "inside the postcard," breathing that fresh air and sleeping in the wooden fishermen's houses, watching the Northern Lights with my own eyes... it's such an adrenaline rush!
Lofoten is an archipelago of islands 1227 km² big, whose largest islands are Austvågøy, Gimsøy, Vestvågøy, Flakstadøy and Moskenesøy. All the islands are surrounded by mountains plunging down to the sea and connected by the gorgeous E10, a scenic drive made up of tunnels and bridges.
Lofoten islands are above the Arctic Circle. However, the climate is quite temperate thanks to the Gulf stream, so even the most sensitive people can enjoy a visit!
