Holiday in Leknes – experience the wild nature of Lofoten

Leknes is the place to be for dramatic mountains and stunning beaches.

Leknes offers many fantastic nature experiences and outstanding scenery for you to enjoy. Here you’ll find white sandy beaches that rival any at warmer latitudes, and steep cliffs with snow-capped peaks. There is a great variety of activities on the water to choose from, including kayaking, rib boating, snorkelling and surfing.

A visit to Leknes brings you to the municipality of Vestvågøy in Nordland and is one of the two towns in Lofoten. The population of Leknes has grown rapidly over recent years and now has a population of just over 3,300. Leknes is also only one of a few places in Lofoten whose industry is based on agriculture rather than fishing.

If you are enjoy keeping fit, you’ll find countless mountains to climb nearby, such as Himmeltinden and Justatinden. Visit Hauklandsanden and experience Norway’s best beach, as voted by the readers of the Norwegian newspaper, Dagbladet. If you want to pick up some amazing souvenirs for family and friends back home, you should visit Glasshytta in Vikten.

A weekend trip to Leknes provides an excellent base for bike rides along the beaches of Lofoten. Remember to bring enough clothes as the weather can change quite suddenly. Why not end the day with locally produced beer at the Surfer Lofoten sports bar? If you visit Leknes during the summer or autumn, you might even be able to attend one of the local fairs taking place.

Getting to Leknes is very easy, especially as it has its own airport nearby. Despite the airport consisting of just a small airfield, it has great connections with other towns in Northern Norway. The centre of Leknes is only 1.5 miles away, and you can easily arrange a hire at the airport upon arrival.

A holiday in Leknes offers many experiences in Norway’s beautiful scenery and nature. You can wear out your hiking boots and collect new sensory impressions as if they were coming at you on a conveyor belt. If you visit during the summer months, you’ll also get to experience the midnight sun.
