The biking route was amazing. Scenery at Lofoten was spectacular. We also did hikes when travelling in Lofoten. Adopted the self-guided tours offered by http://www.exploranor.com/. Very good site to go to if you want to get an idea of hiking and trekking in Lofoten.
Very nice route. I did it a month ago together with a friend. We combined it with a hiking trip. The surrounding is just spectacular. Check out this site http://hiking-lofoten.net/index.php/en/ which we used for all our hiking.
Take a camera and take your time.
I did this route in a day from Trondheim to Bodo. I will be revisiting this for 3 or 4 days in 2010 as I enjoyed it so much this year.
The Lofoten Islands are spectacular. Not to be missed. If you only have time for the Nordkap or the Lofotens, I would chose the Lofotens. Unfortunately, the weather was quite wet when I was there, but the majestic, natural beauty still shone through.
As a motorcycling road, it may not be the best, but the spectacular scenery more than makes up for any shortcomings.
A classic island / costal route. Spectacular scenery. Lots of charming, small places to stay (although pricey). If you come from the South, it is possible to get a ferry from Bodø to Moskenes (start-point). Check out lofoten.no
