    Proximity to the ocean, the jagged Lofoten mountains and the ever shifting Arctic light make this more than just a round of golf.

    Few, if any, golf courses offer such a combination of golf and magnificent scenic surroundings.

    Golfing in the Midnight Sun - play 144 holes a day... From mid May to early August you can play golf all day and all night. As the only golf course in the world, they offer 24 hour daylight for over two months of the year!

    Equipment: You can hire clubs here.

    Nine beautiful links holes - at the beach at Gims√ły in Lofoten. The setting is just fantastic. During the summer (june-august) you can play under the midnight sun - 24 hours a day.

    Equipment: Preper for ALL kind of weather. And it will change before you will be able to run back to the clubhouse. You can rent clubs at the course.

    Dry clean or... about laundrying fish! :)

    Fishing. Lofoten is aaaaall about fishing! About fishing and... drying! Besides many 'fish it yourself' temptations, you run into many dried-fish museums, fishing industry musems or simply lonely-standing racks, and you simply can't resist... the smelly fish :) I looooove dried fish, but I tell you: it can get a bit '...'-ish...

    Equipment: Nose-clips. Pegs help too.

    Surrounded by the sea at skifjell

    view from skifijell

    It's an easy hike - quite short as it takes only about 90 minutes to reach the top of the peak - but what a rewarding one it is. The peak you should aim at - by the way - is called skifjell, and as you can guess... it's the local mountain for skiing. This is very useful to know - because to find the trailhead you have to head to the skilift just behind the village. The path zig-zags under the skilift - and when you reach the end of it, it keeps going uphill for another stretch: When you reach the top you are graced with a 360 view over the surrounding sea and mountains... blue/green water everywhere - and grey barren peaks. Very Dramati

    Equipment: Comfortable shoes - preferably hiking boots - and water - as you will find none on your way there
