Leknes is one of the few towns in [[Lofoten]] which is not based upon fisheries and which does not have it's town centre by the sea. Because of this, and because of it's rapid growth the recent years, it does not have the same traditional wooden architecture as most other towns in [[Lofoten]], and may thus not be regarded to be as picturesque as it's neighbouring fishing villages. However the surrounding nature is regarded to be among the most stunning in  [[Norway]] with it's mountains, peaks, cliffs and white sandy beaches, and it's harbour Leknes Havn is one of [[Norway]]'s most important and visited harbours for cruise ships.
