Målselvfossen waterfall

Today marks the start of our exciting journey to explore the stunning Lofoten Islands. The archipelago is connected by a road that runs through tunnels and viaducts, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. We'll grab our rental cars and head south to begin our adventure.

Along the way, we'll be treated to breathtaking views and we'll have the freedom to choose where we want to stop. One stop that's definitely worth it is the Målselvfossen waterfalls - a perfect opportunity to stretch our legs and admire the scenery.

And why not pay a visit to the Polar Park? It's the northernmost park in the world and is nestled in the boreal taiga. Here, we'll get to see Norway's top predators, such as wolves, bears, lynxes, and foxes, as well as their prey, like reindeer, deer, moose, and musk ox. It's an experience you won't want to miss!

Harstad

After this stop we set off again towards our final destination: Harstad. The beauty of our adventure in the Norwegian lands lies precisely in the road trip, which gives us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the landscapes of these lands.

We spend the evening in the city, perhaps in a small place where we can taste some soup - definitely one of the best dishes around here!

The fishing villages

Our road trip adventure in Norway continues as we make our way south towards the stunning landscapes of Lofoten. The beauty of this journey lies in the road itself, as we get to fully immerse ourselves in the breathtaking scenery.

With three full days to spend in this magical place, we have plenty of time to explore all that it has to offer. Let's decide together on what we can't miss. For instance, we can head to Å - which happens to be one of the countries with the shortest names in the world - and check out the stockfish museum. After all, cod fishing is a traditional activity in this region.

But if we're more interested in natural landscapes, there are plenty of options to choose from. For the photographers among us, Nusfjord, Sakrisoy, Hamnoy, Skagsanden, and Storvatnet are all great spots to capture stunning views of the islands. We'll have plenty of opportunities to explore and appreciate the enchanting beauty of these lands!
