The Lofoten islands are an archipelago located in the Norwegian Sea near the north-west coast of the country. The Westfjord strait separates them from the mainland. The Lofotens belong to Norway, and being its pride attract a huge number of tourists from all corners of our planet.

The archipelago consists of seven large islands and numerous small ones, which are separated from each other by straits. The distances between them are relatively small. The territory of the Lofoten Islands covers a total of 1,227 square kilometers. The islands of the archipelago are home to about 24 thousand people.

Despite the small population, the rocky islands of the archipelago have a rich history and many world-famous objects: here the whirlpool of Malström, the largest on our planet deep-sea coral reef, the largest hall for feasts, which belongs to the era of the majestic Vikings are located. The beauties of the Lofoten Islands are sung by artists, poets and writers.

The Gulf Stream plays a huge role in forming the climate of the archipelago. As already mentioned above, the Lofoten Islands are located beyond the Arctic Circle, but thanks to the warm current the climate here is very mild, marine, the temperature drops are quite small.

In winter, temperatures rarely falls below zero here. The summer on the islands of the Lofoten archipelago is quite cold, but dry, the average temperature of the hottest months, July and August, is about 15 degrees above zero. The coldest months on the islands are January and February.

Several airports operate on the island’s territory. The E10 road, which connected the largest of the islands with mainland Norway, was built recently. The element of this road is the famous Raftsundet Bridge – one of the largest frame-console bridges on the planet. There is a regular ferry from Bodo to Moskenes.
