I have nothing but love for this place. Helped me out when a hostel I had planned on staying in was no longer in business. The front desk staff have been very helpful in answering questions and giving me information about the area and how to get around. Heated bathroom floors, wonderful views, and a great location (close to coffee shops, restaurants, a nice walk along the harbor, etc.)
P.S awesome internet and the continental breakfast is wonderful.

... trip. We headed out and after about an hour and a half we stopped to fish. We had to catch the fish we were going to use to feed the Eagles. It was great fishing.

We went through a very narrow fjord called Trollfjord. We then came side by side to a ...
... at a sweet little fjord alit with boats and across the fjord to a lovely snowy mountain backdrop, we headed down the ring road in almost a blizzard.

Feeling refreshed and decidedly warmer, ...
... The Lofotens though are so spectacular that even with such weather, you can still be absolutely astounded by this amazing landscape. Hopefully over the next few days you might appreciate the landscape a little better as I post more photos. Any description I provide does not do it justice. Consider all you have heard or seen about Norwegian fjords, and picture them with jagged dragons teeth rising 1000 ...
... the mountain tops, there were mountains, lakes, ocean, fjords, islands as far of the eye could see, eagles and ravens soared above and we set up a little seat with a roll mat and dug out snow and sat drinking coffee, eating biscuits and enjoying the amazing view until we got cold again and headed back down, walking down was definitely harder than coming up and we had a few slips here and there. We got back to the car as the light began to fade and by the time ...
... better! And so that leads us to now, we are currently sitting in a traditional fishermans cottage on the edge of the lofoten island fjords on the 2nd night of our honeymoon! Yesterday was a day of travelling- we left the new forest at 4.30am said a teary goodbye and boarded our first plane, another plane and a bus later and we were dropped at a deserted ferry port and told by the bus driver the ferry should be an hour, we pointed towards a clearly closed waiting room and drove off, ...
