Cruising to Leknes, Lofoten Island

When most people imagine northern Norway, they tend to envisage a world of glimmering fjords and towering mountains, where the rugged beauty of Mother Nature remains permanently lit up by the midnight sun in summer and framed by the Northern Lights in winter. Well, guess what? That's exactly what it's like!

The Lofoten Islands are undoubtedly the best place to experience this incredible region of northern Europe, and are sprinkled with some charming fishing villages that add a dose of culture to the wild and majestic landscape.

Of course, the main attractions here will always be those that were not made by man, with the chance to explore the fjords providing a truly unforgettable experience, although it's well worth checking out the Lofoten Viking Museum to learn more about the history of the area.

If you fancy taking a dip in the chilly yet invigorating waters, you'll find some great beaches like Utakleiv and Eggum, while the village of Kabelvaag is perhaps the best place to get a taste of the local fishing culture - literally.
