We have spent in Lofoten and in Vesteralen 11 days. We took a flight (Norwegian) from Oslo to Evenes (Harstadt/Narvik) AirPort, so we can spent a lot of time travelling to Lofoten from Oslo. There at Evenes AirPort we rent a car and the trip...More

There are no trains and only a very small airport, mostly for private plains. The choices are to rent a car from Tromso or Norvik or a bus. The tusism office in Tromso will have bus schedule.
