The Weather, Climate and Seasons
The weather can change quickly from calm and clear skies with sunshine or the Northern Lights, to strong gales with rain or snow. Maximum temperatures may vary from +30 degrees C in June/July to -15 degrees in February, while the average temperatures for these months are from just over +12 degrees to slightly below zero.
It is the Gulf Stream that determines our climate, and this in turn forms the basis for the cod's annual migration to Lofoten, and thereby for human settlement along our coast.
The Midnight Sun is visible from May 27 to July 15 from Refsvika, Bunes, Horseid, Mulstøa, Fredvang, Ramberg, Flakstad, Vikten, Myrland and mountain tops.
