LET YOUR CRUISE HOLIDAY TAKE YOU TO A LAND OF WILD LANSCAPES AND SIMPLE LIFE: THE LOFOTEN ISLANDS OF NORWAY.
The scenery of the Lofoten archipelago is among the most dramatic in Norway, its spectacular glacial rock formations always visible, looming large behind beaches and green fields. Here, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the landscape is wild and life is simple, the coast ringed with fishing hamlets and picturesque cabins on stilts that have attracted artists for centuries. Birdlife is abundant, with large colonies of cohabiting species nesting on towering cliffs. 10 km offshore the continental shelf drops away to depths of a kilometre, and massive sperm whales can be spotted feeding in the deep, nutrient-rich waters.
