The Lofoten islands of Norway are an overwhelmingly beautiful sight. Every corner and every part of these islands are just dripping in dramatic visuals, somehow combing the desolate cold of the Arctic and the mountains, like Himmeltindan and Svolværgeita, with the warm of its green meadows and shores. It doesn’t matter if you are a person of the mountains or the beaches; you will find your calling here in the Lofoten islands. Look up and you’ll find the northern lights dance across the horizon. In the summers, the sun will blaze throughout the night, never setting or leaving the islands from its sight. Here’s a look at some photos that try to capture the visual majesty of the islands.

Lofoten Islands are, despite their incredible natural beauty, still known for their fishing industry. The small villages here earn their livelihoods through fishing the rich waters around the islands. Travelers can spend their time here just taking in the scenery, going fishing with the locals, looking for sea eagles or the northern lights above them, or kayaking between the islands.

The waters of the Norwegian Sea scream and wail as they rush between the Lofoten Islands, making them perfect rapids to test your kayaking skills. With the majestic mountains around you for visual company, it is an experience you won’t find anywhere else. Untouched beaches stretch along the coastline of the islands, where you can relax in a way very different from your usual tropical island paradise.
