Hamnøy, Lofoten archipelago
Hamnøy is the Oldest and Most Picturesque Fishing Village in the stunning Lofoten archipelago. Lofoten is known for a distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches and untouched lands.
The Lofoten Islands are located above the arctic circle in Northwest Norway. Made up of deep fjords, craggy peaks, sandy beaches, and cute red fishing cabins, the islands are a wonderful location for landscape photography. If you are an Aurora Borealis chaser this could be interesting place.
Visitors are accommodated in the original fishermen cabins. They can rent boats and bikes, go hiking and fishing. Annual Feelgood Jazzfest is being held here.
Visitors of Hamnøy Lofoten say that whoever visited the Lofoten, must have got the bug, and is certain to return here. It is indeed difficult not to reminisce on the spectacular views of the sea, the mountains and the fjords, and all at the same time.
Each visitor, on whom nature bestowed a little sensitivity, will appreciate the unspoiled beauty of the northern reaches of Norway.
