Cycling in Lofoten (northern Norway)

A fantastic place to spend a few days cycle touring - plenty of camping spots, or try the wonderful Rorbu or fishermans cabins along the coast - the white was our route with the dots showing where we stayed - we were only there for the cycling but there are plenty of excellent walking routes too - the scenary is stunning and the people very freindly too - choose the right season and you can see the midnight sun or migrating orcas!!
