Hiking maps (paper) Three maps on a scale of 1:50,000 cover the whole of the Lofoten islands. You can buy them once you arrive in the islands at bookshops, most food-shops, petrol stations and tourist offices. It is cheaper to buy them in the Lofoten islands than on line. They are not very detailed and the marking of the routes is sometimes rather inaccurate. They are, however, the best available unless you decide to go for a handheld GPS with a vectorial map database.
