In summer, with it’s north facing coastline, Eggum is a popular location for campers hoping to see the midnight sun. The grassy, green fields past the town are often filled with tents and RV’s enjoying the 24 hours of daylight during the Lofoten summer. After the road ends there is also a nice, easy coastal walk which connects to the village of Unstad.

In winter, Eggum is a lonely place. There is no light, and cold northern winds often sweep across the landscape.
