In many people’s opinion, Lofoten is at its most beautiful during the winter. They may have a point. The shining white Lofoten mountains, with fishing boats and the deep blue sea in the foreground, are a sight that makes an impression on all who see it.
From one year to another, there may be a lot of snow in Lofoten, but usually the winters are mild due to the temperate and ice-free waters that surround the islands. Normally, there is no snow there before about Christmas, and since times gone by February and March have traditionally been considered the snowiest months.
