This is the most definitive guidebook available that describes the rock climbing on the Lofoten Islands, which are located off the west coast of Norway, around 200km north of the Arctic Circle. The guidebook describes many long multi-pitch routes from a couple of pitches long up to 500m long, along with a number of sport routes. The climbing is on excellent granite peaks that rise dramatically from sea level. Not all of the routes are long multi-pitch climbs on huge walls, as there are plenty of shorter routes on accessible crags with short walk-ins, along with some bouldering.

At the start of each area there is a location map and a description of the style and aspect of the climbing to be found. The guidebook covers 21 different areas on Lofoten, and details over 550 routes, plus 14 routes around the Stetind area on the mainland, close to Narvik. All the routes are shown on clear colour photo topos along with detailed route descriptions and descent information. The climbing is spread across a wide range of grades are from Norwegian 4 to 9 (English, Severe to E7 or French, 3 to 8a). At the start of the guidebook there is a comprehensive section detailing the various options of travelling to Lofoten.
