A must for the dramatic site alone. Quirky, with lots of paraphernalia around inside and outside, plus a sheep with two lambs grazing on the roof.

We hadn’t done much in the art department while in lofoten so we made sure to hit this gem. The setting is spectacular and the glass blowing artists were attentive and keen to show off their craft, even though we arrived at closing !! Anders...More

I was very excited to visit the Glasblower at Vikten during our trip to Lofoten. I tried visiting this place 3 different times in the week we were in Lofoten and every time we went, they were closed. There were no hours of operation listed...More

Would definitely recommend a drive here if you're in the Lofoten Islands. The demonstration was really interesting and the glass is beautiful. The building itself is interesting as well. Fascinating to see how they create their art. Highly recommend visiting here.

This is worth a side trip if you are in the Lofoten Islands. The Glasshytta building is a work of art in itself- a three level modern building with a sod roof. It is located right on the rocky shore of the North Atlantic. We...More

This is also a place you need to visit. Fantastic to see how they create the art, and all the different varieties that are. A nice cafe and a good possibility to buy something nice. Recommended

The building itself is spectacular, so is the location and the cafe just across the road belonging to the same establishment. The two buildings look as if they have been built by driftwood from the lovely, nearby beach. As you move closer, you see that...More

A lot of fun watching the artists create their magic in glass. Very reasonable prices for their original art. It was difficult to choose the perfect piece to take home but that was half the fun. One of the best deals in expensive Norway.
