Haukland Beach (Hauklandstranda)

The stunning and dramatic natural scenery of the Lofoten Islands is well known. A landscape of jagged, rocky mountains that drop precipitously into the clear blue waters of the Arctic Sea. And a coastline dotted with white-sand beaches that are amongst the most gorgeous on earth. Amongst such beauty it is impossible to pick a favourite, but Haukland beach comes close.

Haukland has all these attributes and is set in a wide horseshoe-shaped bay with mountain view in all directions. The sand here is as white as any of the archipelago’s other beaches and the sea just as blue and clear.

Once you have chilled out on the beach overloaded your senses with this amazing scenery you might want to hike around to the next, equally lovely (but slightly more commercial) Uttakleiv Beach. If you are up for a bit of a climb go via the Mannen ridge where you will get the best views over this incredible stretch of coast.
