The movie of the two Norwegian surfer & film makers “North of the Sun” is already some years old. But still it is inspiring many visitors to start their own adventure while visiting Norway. Many people are doing the hike into the hidden bay of Kvalvika in Lofoten. With a bit of searching you will find the driftwood cabin build by Inge Wegge (25) and Jørn Ranum (22) back in 2011. Here they spent 9 month in the Norwegian winter. Picking up trash, surfing and living on expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away.
There movie has won many outdoor and surf film festivals around the globe. The starting point for the hike into the bay of Kvalvika is on the Lofoten island Moskenesøya.

If you want to experience Lofoten you should consider your visit in the off season (September until May). The Islands are very popular as a summer destination and it can get very crowded. You will find many wild camp spots located right at the Atlantic. The weather situations can be kind of tricky. If you are planing outdoor activities, it is strongly recommended to check the forecast (for example here YR.no) since the weather situations can change quickly.
