One of the best places I have ever seen

One of the best decisions in my life was to go visit Lofoten Islands. It was a last minute call when we planned our Scandinavian trip and we had several options to do this, but the cheapest and most convenient that I have found was the ferry from Bodø.

It was a 3 hours trip on a beautiful sea of a very dark colour. I was lucky to catch some very good weather as well, being blessed with some wonderful photo oportunities.

The photos from all around the Lofoten islands should be saying much more than I am able to.

Impressive even from far away

This photo was taken from the ferry from Bodø to Moskenes. The islands appear in an impressive manner from far far away.

I want to return here!

As I was leaving the bus passed through absolutely sensational landscapes. I have realised then that I have only seen a small part of Lofoten and that there is much more there that I have seen. Therefore I shall return (as soon as possible I hope)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Stunning landscapes, Quietness, Cleanliness
  • Cons:No cons at all
  • In a nutshell:Chilling at the end of the world!
