Lofoten – is an archipelago and a traditional district in the county of Nordland, Norway. Lofoten is known for a distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches and untouched lands. Its largest town, Leknes, is approximately 169 km (105 mi) inside the Arctic Circle and approximately 2,420 km (1,500 mi) away from the North Pole, making Lofoten one of the world’s northernmost populated regions. Though lying within the Arctic Circle, the archipelago experiences one of the world’s largest elevated temperature anomalies relative to its high latitude.

From late May to mid-July, you can see the so-called “midnight sun” – during this period, it does not set over the horizon. At the same time, from the beginning of December to the beginning of January, you will not see the sun in the sky at all – a polar night falls on the islands.

And at the same time, in autumn and winter you have every chance to observe another amazing phenomenon – the enchanting Northern Lights.
