Sightseeing in your Evenes/Lofoten holidays
Beautiful white dream beaches and turquoise-coloured water await you on the Lofoten Islands - almost like in the Caribbean. Ideal for a walk, a picnic or - for the cold-resistant - even a cool refreshment. We particularly recommend Kvalvika beach, which is located in a secluded bay.
Numerous hiking trails wind their way around the imposing mountains, allowing you to explore the fantastic nature of the Lofoten Islands. From easy coastal walks to challenging mountain hikes, there is something for every level. You can look forward to spectacular views.
The Lofotr Viking Museum is a highlight if you want to find out more about Viking culture. The impressive replica of the largest longhouse of the entire Viking Age and the lively surroundings give you an impression of what everyday life must have been like for sailors 1,000 years ago.

How about a trip on the Norwegian mail ship line, the "Hurtigruten"? Embark in Harstad and experience the Norwegian coast, idyllic fishing villages and exciting cultural insights all the way to the North Cape and on to Kirkenes.
The Lofoten Islands are also an ideal starting point for whale watching. In summer, you have a good chance of spotting a sperm whale.
