One of the biggest tourist attractions of northern Norway is certainly the Lofoten archipelago. Set out for the midnight sun, the world’s largest sea stream, the mountain landscape far beyond the Arctic Circle, and ancient Viking history will grab your travel heart!
Wonderful natural scenery breathtaking, here Mother Nature was really generous. Norwegian nature is one of the finest in the world.
Not far from Bodø, a strait stretches between Straumen and Straumøya, which is the scene of a great natural theater approximately every 6 hours at high and low tide. The mass of water is rushing through here at speeds of over 40 km / h and a dramatic funnel-shaped vortex is created by hitting the bottom and shores. It is the largest and strongest sea current of this type in the world. You, the fishermen, could also be interested in the accompanying phenomenon, thanks to the accumulation of a large number of fish, on the banks standing fishermen literally pull one fish after another from the water. Witness this unique phenomenon as well, enjoy the view from the bridge that spans the strait between the islands.
You can also visit the interesting Aviation Museum.
The clock shows almost midnight, the sun is slowly setting, you will be amazed at this beauty, suddenly the sun bounces visually from the glittering sea surface and rises again. Don’t miss what you can’t see anywhere else.
Lofoten archipelago with mountainous landscape of alpine type, whose mountain peaks are very wild and many walls reach a respectable 700 - 900 m above sea level. The whole mountain system culminates in the 1,050 m high point Svartinnd. Hiking trails are not usually found, but the ascents to the island peaks are worth seeing.
In Å you will find a fishing museum and Ågvatnet lake, whose shores are a great starting point for climbing the lookout ridge below Gjertinden. You will be greeted by breathtaking views of the hills, the sea and the lake below.
Do not hesitate and book your time, Norway certainly has something to offer always, so you will love this country.
