The largest town on the Lofoten Islands, Svolvaer serves as a good base from which to launch your tour of the archipelago.
Escape the urban bustle at Haukland Beach and Tjeldbergtind. Venture out of the city with trips to Gimsoy Landhandel Lofoten (in Gimsoysand), Lofotr Viking Museum (in Bostad) and Hov Gard (in Gimsoya). There's lots more to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Glomtinden, trek along Hiking on the hills, and see the interesting displays at Lofoten Krigsminnenmuseum.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Svolvaer holiday planner.
