A guide to the best photo spots in Lofoten

Last year I did an amazing road trip to the beautiful Lofoten Islands in Norway. The Lofoten Islands are a unique archipelago and are located beyond the Arctic Circle.

I was traveling with the camper for a month and I was able to discover so many lovely places. There are breathtaking views, dramatic mountains and incredible beaches.

Kvalvika Beach is by far the most beautiful place in Lofoten Islands. The lonely bay can only be reached on foot through a hike lasting several hours. The fine sandy beach, the turquoise water and the steep rugged cliffs are simply incredible.
