Lofoten is the sea eagles empire with wild and uncompromising scenery. Steep mountain walls that rise from the sea offers great summit to sea skiing. The highest peaks stretch 1,200 vertical meters above the sea level and can provide skiing of different difficulty.

Lofoten cannot be described by words only; you need to be there to fully grasp its glory. This place has an aura that must be experienced.

The really tough guys up here are the local fishermen. In the old days they were out catching cod in open boats without letting an Arctic storm interfere the important fishery. Today cod fishing remains the most important income but truism is getting more and more important.
