Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will pick up your rental car for the next three days, allowing you to explore one of the most beautiful places in Norway; the Lofoten Islands (rental car not included). The island group is known for its many nature attractions, charming villages off the beaten track, dramatic cliffs and blue-watered bays. The Lofoten Islands are home and workplace of thousands of fishermen who have learned to live in tune with the moods of sea and sky, settling in villages in sheltered bays and taking full advantage of the temperate effect of the Gulf Stream. Two of the most recognizable sights are therefore the fishermen’s cabins (=rorbu) and the Stockfish which is cod that has been hung to dry on a wooden frame. As you head south-west towards Å we recommend several stops along the way, including a detour to Henningsvær. The road leading out to this charming village is an attraction in itself, but while in Henningsvær don’t miss out on the art gallery Lofotens Hus where you will find the largest collection of North Norwegian paintings from last century. Continue on road E10 to Borg where we recommend a visit at the Lofotr Viking Museum, where you will find a recreation of the largest Viking building ever found, an original chieftain house dating from around 500 AD. As you continue south the scenery becomes more and more spectacular and is characterized by a narrow coastline, steep mountain formations and the strong tidal currents that flow between the islands. The sea and the Ice Ages have formed deep fjords, craggy peaks and a number of coastal caves. Your home for the next two nights is our very own rorbu at Tind, beautifully located by the sea and 5 minutes by foot from the village Å.
