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!
