Leknes

Like all typical places of Norway, Leknes was shaped by the strength of the Vikings. Yet it also features the delicacy of glass works of the famous blower Vikten.

Leknes is at the centre of the Lofoten Islands, below the Arctic polar circle. Contrary to other Norwegian Islands, these islands boast vast verdant expanses that you can admire upon your arrival at the port. Visit the surroundings of Leknes and discover the landscapes of Nappskaret and the other islands of the archipelago. Don’t miss the works of the magical glassblower of Vikten, kept in an extraordinary building of great architectural value by the sea. Finish off your stop in Leknes by browsing the many shops in the area.

Not to be missed:

• The Viking Museum

• Haukland Beach

• The Bay of Flakstad
