Lofoten and Vesteralen on Google Maps.
High mountains overlooking the sea that creeps between dozens of green islands bordered by small fishing villages, islands that form two of the most famous archipelagos in northern Europe: Vesteralen and Lofoten located along the northern Norwegian coasts. Life in the archipelagos flows with the rhythms of the cod fish, one of the main products of the Lofoten economy caught in the cold waters of the North sea, worked in the Rorbu, the fishermen's houses with attached warehouses for processing and storage, dried on long coastal rows and exported all over the world. A journey to Lofoten islands is a travel into unspoiled nature between long fjords in which calm waters ripple with the tides that become vertical when the currents create large and small Melstroms that swallow everything that floats in their funnel. A trip that in the summer season becomes an unforgettable journey renting the Rorbu used by fishermen and equipped with boat and fishing rods to get a cod for dinner enjoying spectacular sunsets with the sun that never sets. A journey to the north in contact with nature in the calm and peaceful Norwegian atmospheres.
