Lofoten Code of Conduct

The Lofoten Code of Conduct was made
by locals in the Lofoten area. The code is a
reminder for the visitors and residents of
Lofoten to be considerate of their surroundings and
take care of the nature. This way, Lofoten can
remain a good experience for everyone.

Lofoten Code of Conduct

Lofotvettreglene ble til gjennom et samarbeid
mellom ulike aktører i Lofotregionen.
Reglene er en påminnelse til Lofotens besøkende og
beboere om å ta bedre vare på naturen, slik at
Lofoten blir en god opplevelse for alle.

Gjør så godt du kan og bli med på dugnaden!

Lofoten Code of Conduct

1

CAMP IN DESIGNATED AREAS

2

Leave no trace

Avoid leaving traces in nature, such as cairns, tent pegs etc. Allow others to have the same great experience that you’ve had.

3

FOLLOW THE PATH AND AVOID THE CREATION OF NEW PATHS

4

THROW WASTE IN THE WASTE BINS

If you are in an area without bins, bring your wate with you until you can dispose of it.

5

Use public toilets

If none are present, go in the ocean or dig a pit in the ground. Avoid using wet wipes, as they take a long time to decompose.

6

RESPECT PRIVATE PROPERTY

Camping closer than 150 metres from an occupied house or cabin is forbidden. You can only camp on cultivated land if you have an agreement with the land owner.

7

BE CONSIDERATE IN TRAFFIC

The roads in Lofoten are narrow, yet many use them. Keep well clear of eyelists when passing them. Be especially mindful of bicycles in tunnels.

8

BAN ON FIRES

During the summer months, there is a general ban on open fires. Use designated sites for fire, and make sure there is no risk for a forest fire.

9

Respect wildlife

Avoid disturbing animals unnecessarily. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.

10

IN THE INTEREST OF THE ENVIRONMENT,

as well as your own experience and safety, we recommend activities organised by a tour operator. You can find a list of such organisers at www.lofoten.info.
