Welcome to Lofoten Tourist Centre!
Lofoten Tourist Centre (Lofoten Turistsenter) is a combined camp
site and restaurant. It is situated in Alstad, in the heart of
Lofoten, midway between the two major towns of Leknes (30km) and
Svolvær (40 km). It is only 30km from Leknes Airport and only a
short distance from Lofoten Golf Links, the Viking Museum and
many of Lofoten’s coastal gems. All of Lofoten's extremities can be reached by
car within 90 minutes.
Lofoten Tourist Centre is set in beautiful scenic surroundings.
You can haul your catch ashore from calm fishing lakes, or put
your skis on in winter and take a trip up the majestic mountains
for which Lofoten is so well-known. Furthermore, the mountains
surrounding Lofoten Tourist Centre are very well suited to those
who like to move around at higher altitudes, and perhaps even
spend the night on the summit. When night falls in summer, you
can see straight out in to the ocean where the midnight sun
paints the heavens in spectacular colours.
Ever since Lofoten Tourist Centre was opened in the early 1990s,
it has been a base where tourists can get everything they need
to ensure that their experience of Lofoten is just as it should
The camp site offers 6 cabins of varying sizes to suit your
requirements. If you come in a motor home or with a caravan, you
will find everything you need here. Arrangements have also been
made for those who prefer to stay in a tent. The Tourist Centre
is set in rural surroundings and the children can therefore
frolic in quiet and safe yet exciting setting.
In the restaurant our chefs are ready to give you a taste of
Lofoten. We serve food that is 100% home-made in accordance with
time-honoured traditions. All meals are based on traditional,
local ingredients. Service and hospitality are first priority
and we will do our best to ensure that when you leave us, you
will be completely satisfied – and leave with the pleasant
aftertaste of Lofoten’s culinary culture.
In 2008 Lofoten Tourist Centre was voted Nordland’s best
