Lofoten Islands question

I need some help planning our trip to Lofoten Islands. We are going to be flying from Oslo. Is Wideroe the only airline that flies there?

Can someone suggest where in Lofoten Island is a good spot to base ourselves? We want to hike, bike and enjoy the islands. We have 3 days to spare.

Thanks so much!

Widerøe is the only airline that flies to the islands proper. Many fly to Bodø and take one of the ferries - depends on what means of transport you plan to use.

If you want to bike I suppose you should choose somewhere offering bike rental.

Be prepared for the fact that some days can be less than ideal for biking (wind, rain), late August autumn is approaching fast.

To make the most of your visit you will need to hire a car. It will be cheaper and possibly quicker to take a direct flight to Evenes (Harstad / Narvik airport) with SAS or Norwegian and drive down into Lofoten. Use Google Maps to see distances and driving times.
