The awesome beauty of the Lofoten Islands

From the day I arrived at Inntravel, I was mesmerised by the dramatic beauty of the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway. I pored over the images we had in our photo library and searched the internet for as many views and features as I could find. Imagine my delight, therefore, when I was asked to travel to Mortsund with a colleague to research walking routes and to write the notes for our Journey to Å holiday. Here are just a few of the photos I took:

Colourful fishing villages beneath jagged peaks, Lofoten Islands, Norway
Exhilarating driving/The Midnight Sun, Lofoten Islands, Norway
Viking Museum, traditional rorbu and UNESCO heritage villages, Lofoten Islands, Norway

..and it's possible to see these beautiful islands in winter, too, on a great coastal voyage, Beyond the Arctic Circle in February and March 2011:
