Default To macjake: Lofoten

Hi Craig
Firstly, thank you for your very nice comment.
I only spent 4 days in Lofoten (including two days travelling to and from Oslo). I flew Norwegian Air Shuttle from London to Oslo in the evening, then to Hardstad/Evenes early in the morning, on arrival hired a car in the airport and drove to Svolvaer where I stayed for 3 nights. I spent the next two days driving around the islands as far as A i Lofoten where the road ends.
The flight was nice and short (2 hours from the UK to Norway, then about one hour from Oslo to the north). Norwegian is a Skandinavian version of cheap airline but much nicer and comfortable than e.g. Ryanair.
As for the experience - it's a wonderful place with amazing landscapes. The weather was overcast most of the time but I witnessed a couple of amazing sunsets, a proper winter snowfall and took some dusk photos as well. I guess the islands are also very beautiful during spring and the short arctic summer.
Highly recommended.
Have a nice day
