Mountain Code

For Norwegians, the mountain code is with us
from birth. Even in Lofoten, the weather can get rough.
In winter and summer alike. Remember that you
always can turn around if the conditions change.
The mountains aren't going anywhere.

Mountain Code

Husker du fjellvettreglene?
I Lofoten kan det bli røft vær, både på
sommertid og på vinterstid. Husk at det
alltid er lov til å snu hvis du føler deg usikker
på dagens tur. Fjellene går ingen steder.
