Tourism, Lofoten |  Pande feels that tourism has invaded Lofoten: – They are everywhere

(Lofoten Post Office): Anders Nilsson runs a farm with 215 winter feed goats at Reppe near Legnes. In recent years, he has experienced the growth of tourism both domestically and internationally at the sheltered farm in the interior of Viquanet towards the Himmeltind massif.

– Wild campers park their cars and set up their tents in our fields or pastures. Camping is one thing, but they need to accommodate themselves. There is a risk of dirt getting into the fodder and we have experienced that harvest guards have been used like dogs. Our dogs rolled in it and we got it in our shoes. It doesn't make for a pleasant workplace, he says.

I thought it was legal

On Thursday night, he experienced two foreign tourists pitching a tent in his infield. A short distance from the municipal road, the car went on the tractor road. Lofotenposten contacted two tourists from Germany and the Netherlands. They regretted that they had settled in a separate property.

– It doesn't seem like it. As long as there is no fence or sign, we thought that both of us, who don't want their names and pictures in Lofotenposten, would be allowed to camp here.

Anders Nilsson saw no solution to the problem.

– This is not the first time someone has camped there. I don't know what to do. “I run several tees in a large area and it's not possible to put signs at every entrance,” he says.

A lot of people in the suburbs

Anders Nilsson, however, experiences foot tourism through the countryside as a major problem. Every year he releases 550 large and small animals into the open. In total, around 2,000 sheep and lambs graze on the Himmeltind massif.

– There are always groups of tourists walking by. Animals are chased, sheep can be separated from their lambs, and we constantly experience the gates to the outer field being left open, allowing animals to enter the inner circle, he says.

A few years ago, he allowed the Arctic Triple Company to put an open-air race course on the farm. But problems have become too much for grazing animals and now the route has been changed.

— but the old running track is still online, and tourists follow it, Nilsen says.

Fear of growth

Anders Nilsson's discomfort as a result of the race is regrettable, says Kristian Nashok of Arctic Tribble.

– As far as I know, we have removed the old way from the internet. We do not want to disturb the farmers, he said.

– But could tour operators and others have copied the race route and recommended it to tourists?

– I don't know anything about that, he says.

Anders Nilsson fears that someone outside Lofoten is making good money by guiding tourists off the beaten track.

– There are apps where tourists pay a monthly fee to get travel tips and free accommodations on everything from farmland to cemeteries, says Nilsen, one of the apps.

– The first thing I saw was a note about a free roadside shelter in Wickenangen in the middle of our pasture. “I'm starting to see the dark side of how this is shaping up,” he says.
