A combination of mountain peaks, open sea and sheltered bays makes this Nordic Town one of the most picturesque in Norway. Despite the fact that it is situated on an archipelago on Norwegian Sea, it is easily accessible by train from many Scandinavian cities. The best option to view Northern Lights in this area is to stay in the traditional cabins called corbu that are outside the residential areas. These are traditional houses of fishermen, so you will have an idea about their lifestyle in the meantime. During the day, you must visit the Lotofr Viking Museum to learn more about the history of Vikings.
