Lofoten

The Lofoten Islands are located above the Arctic Circle in northern Norway. Although getting there may require a few flights and/or ferry rides, the journey is well worth the sheer beauty of the islands. As you can see from these photographs, I fully expect Lofoten Islands will soon become a tourist mecca.
