Travelled up here during late June and early July. We were hit with some rather challenging weather conditions but the place was truly amazing. We hired a car so could travel extensively and it was worth the cost. So many interesting places to see, great...More

Gravdal. Nothing much there except the Dragon Church, a beautiful wooden building dating from about 1905 I think. Lovely, well kept wooden houses, a supermarket and a derelict hotel. If you go in on a cruise you will probably be tendered in but NOT to...More

I was on a guided tour from Hurtigruten. We started from Stamsund and drove through the nice scenery of Norwegian mountains. The scenery was amazing, but I had wanted to see the Lofoten Cathedral. We were stopped by road work at many places, so we...More

Just my personal opinion but a very desolate and insignificant place to visit, coming from a home base which has a thousand miles of some of the best beaches on the planet, their beaches would never get a mention, however the tunnel systems and the...More

Visited the Lofoten Islands late May, early June 2018. This place certainly didn't disappoint. Amazing scenery and quite unlike anywhere else we've been to, the closet perhaps being Iceland. Visiting this time of year we have certainly missed the the tourist season. The weather is...More

Visited late one evening in the middle of a snow storm. Magical place. The fish drying racks are enormous and I imagine it's quite a sight to see them full of fish ...although I'm not sure about the smell

I would suggest you get to Trondheim by plane and then look at RometoRio on your browser. It will give you all the alternatives. We found it very reliable getting around Norway.
