LOFOTEN


The Lofot is an archipelago in Norway with about 25 000 inhabitants. People make their living among other things with fishing and tourism.
The road project Lofast, which was completed in December 2007, made possible to travel through island group to the mainland
without car ferrys. Highway E10 starts in Luleå, Sweden, and ends in Å, the southernmost village of Lofoten.
The landscape is dominated by steep mountains with sharp peaks, sheltered fjords, swirling straits and seashores rippled by tides.
In summer the weather is mostly fresh and the winter temperatures are fairly high, considering the location of the island group
from the polar circle to the north. This, of course, is because of the Golf Stream. Røst and Værøy are the northernmost places
in the world where the average temperature remains above zero for the whole year.
