Vikten is situated on the rugged outer coast of the Lofoten Islands,
overlooking the Arctic Ocean (Norwegian Sea). There is no harbour in the
village. Remnants of ancient settlement from the year 500-1000 A.D. Religious
sect, "Guds Menighet" - the Parish of God who have their own
private school. Quaint, olde-worlde hamlet with Glassblower's Cabin - Lofoten
Design and Åse Tangrand's ceramics workshop. Well-worth a visit!
