Always Lofoten was the house and the workplace of fishermen's generations because the season of fishing is essential for the local economy.

 Lofoten they are not because abrupt mountains and villages of picturesque fishermen, but islands are also a succession of bays, white sand beaches, wild creeks... We say that the light which bathes Lofoten is unique to the world and it is the reason for which numerous artists find their inspiration there we shall have the pleasure to attend a slide show which expresses the atmosphere which reigns on these islands to Henningsvaer, nicknamed " Venice of Lofoten ".

Mountains are convenient to the climbing and one to perceive of numerous followers training within the framework of the Norwegian crag which is very present in Lofoten.
