Lofoten : Living Landscape

The Lofoten Islands are a rocky, mountainous archipelago, some 20 kilometres off the Norwegian coast and 150 kilometres into the Arctic Circle. Seasonal fishing, farming, and more recently a tourist trade, support a population of some 25,000 people.

I visited the islands in May 2010 - just as the winter snows were disappearing. I slowly travelled from north to south over a two week period during which I stayed in one of the few b&b places on the islands and 'rorbuer' - traditional fishermen's hut, so very close to the water, now converted into very basic tourist accommodation.
