The Epoch of Reionization is one of the least explored epochs in the history of the Universe. The redshifted 21 cm line from neutral hydrogen emitted during this epoch is the most promising probe for exploring it. To date there are a number of low frequency radio telescope that are aiming at detecting this radiation. The LOw Frequency ARray, LOFAR, which a European telescope centred in the Netherlands, has started collecting data on December 2012. I will discuss the current status of the experiment and the main results coming out of it.
