Travel along one of the most beautiful roads in Norway: Lofoten. The length of one of the best excursion routes in Europe is 230 km. Due to the warm Gulf Stream, Lofoten has a much milder climate than other parts of the world at the same latitude. Between late May and mid July you can experience the midnight sun, whilst the northern lights can be viewed from September to mid April.

Day 3. The archipelago of Lofoten. Fjords, national park.

Lofoten has a strong connection to the Viking Age, and at Lofotr Viking Museum you can experience the Viking Age as it really was. At Borg, archaeologists have discovered the largest Viking longhouse ever found from this era. The building is 83 metres long and has been reconstructed as a living museum. National tourist roads unite nature, architecture and design into a single whole. Breathtaking landscapes of a magnificent national park. And this is not a cliche. Lofoten is one of the most unique places in Norway, deservedly popular among tourists. The road takes us to the heart of the archipelago. Today we are inspecting the western part. On the right is an unspoilt ocean, on the left are mountains and alpine meadows. We turn to the most secluded corners of the national park. Tracking, walk along the fjord. Fishing in the ocean is free. Those who want to ride in the lakes - please refer to the guide who will purchase a license together with you.

Day4. Svolvær – Kabelvåg – Henningsvær - Gimsøy

Start the day with an amble out to the breakwater, before wandering around Svolvær’s diverse shops, or spend a few hours on a boat trip to the mighty Trollfjord. Follow the E10 to the medieval town of Kabelvåg, where you can see Lofoten Cathedral, one of Norway’s biggest wooden churches, and the village used by fishermen during the Lofoten fishery. Kabelvåg was an important market town in the Middle Ages, and much of its historic architecture has been preserved. Look up at the statue of King Øystein on the hill, then learn about Lofoten’s history in the museums and galleries at Storvågan. See what lives under the waves in the aquarium, before continuing to the famous fishing village of Henningsvær, with its ’rorbu’ fishermen’s cabins, drying racks, lovely harbour, galleries and arts and crafts.

Day5. National Tourist Route Senja.

Say goodbye to the magnificent Lofoten. Wonderful places are a real fairy tale. We leave to another national tourist road = 86/862 Senja.

The steep mountains plunging deep into the ocean are a breathtaking sight and the most prominent feature of this stretch. The road is narrow here and there as it twists and turns along fjords with crystal clear, icy-cold waters. So cold that no matter how inviting the beaches with their pure white coral sand appear, going for a swim is only for the hardiest among us. At Bergsbotn you will find a viewing platform that lifts you above the magnificent surroundings, allowing you to look out over Bergsfjorden to the ocean in the background. The drive continues in a dramatic landscape on a road which is occasionally quite narrow and winding, and you will find tiny fishing villages and houses clinging to the most surprising spots. Senja reflects the robustness and hardship of a time when people had to survive on fishing and agriculture that yielded little, but the island also reveals a less harsh side with its sheltered fjord inlets. And above all, it is so beautiful that you will wonder why you haven’t found your way here before.

Day 6. One of the most beautiful places of the planet.

We explore 100 km of the national park. One of the main attractions is Tungenezet. This is a beautiful place where there is a division of two fjords: Steinsfjord and Ersfjord.
