Island · Nature / Park
Lofoten Island represents a traditional fishing district famed for its landscape featuring mountain peaks, sheep pastures, sheltered coves, small villages, and the midnight sun. Sitting within the Arctic Circle, all islands of the archipelago are linked by road bridges and tunnels. The island offers several locations for surfing and wildlife safaris, plus a well-marked cycling route. Go whale watching, mountain hiking, or rock climbing. Old fishermen's cabins equipped with modern utilities offer lodging to travelers. Look for the sculpture by Dan Graham near the waterfront, made of transparent, concave mirrored walls reflecting the images of the blue sea, clear sky, and steep mountains.

  • Lofoten (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈluːfuːtn̩]) is an archipelago and a traditional district in the county of Nordland, Norway. Lofoten is known for a distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches and untouched lands. Though lying within the Arctic Circle, the archipelago experiences one of the world's largest elevated temperature anomalies relative to its high latitude. Edgar Allan Poe's short story "A Descent into the Maelström" tells the story of a man who survived his ship being drawn into and swallowed by Moskstraumen. Jules Verne's novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) concludes with the Nautilus fallen into the Maelström, and Prof. Aronnax, Conseil and Ned Land, who had been attempting to escape when the Nautilus began its fall, washed up on an island in the Lofotens. Johan Bojer's novel The Last of the Vikings (1922) tells the story of the Lofoten cod fishermen. In Nikos Kavvadias's poem "The pilot Nagel", pilot Nagel's birthplace was the Lofoten islands. In Angela Green's novel The Colour of Water, much of the action takes place in Å i Lofoten and climaxes at the Maelstrom. In Ole Edvart Rølvaag's novel Giants in the Earth, the Norwegian protagonists settling in Dakota Territory are immigrants from Lofoten. In Thomas Campbell's poem Ode to Winter Films Edit In the film Maelström, Lofoten is where the ashes of Annstein Karson are distributed. Paintings Edit The islands of the Lofoten archipelago are known for their natural environment.[citation needed] The area has rugged landscape and unique lighting.[citation needed] Consequently, the islands have long served as an inspiration for artists.
