We've picked out the best hikes, the most iconic viewpoints, as well as some hidden gems on our eight-day exploration of perhaps Norway's most beautiful archipelago. Dramatic mountains, long white beaches, wild seas and rich wildlife give us great experiences of Norwegian nature at its very best!
- Hike four of Lofoten's most iconic peaks
- Join us on a boat trip on the Reinefjord followed by a hike to Bunesstranda
- Enjoy three-course dinners with traditional "dried fish", a key factor for the economy in Lofoten's history
- A great coastal walk with a view of the North Sea
- Explore the traditional fishing villages in Lofoten that can be dated back hundreds of years
- Stay in traditional rorbu's
- Experience the midnight sun from June to August, or the northern lights in September (depending on the season)
In Lofoten there is midnight sun from the end of May until the end of July. The sight of a warm sun that never reaches below the bottom of the horizon is spectacular to say the least. In August, the sun dips below the horizon around 10.30pm, but it will still be light all day. If we move into September, the contrasts are turned upside down. Then it is possible to see the Northern Lights. You probably already realize that Lofoten is a very special place with great seasonal variations. And not enough of that. Lofoten also has a natural beauty that can take the breath away of the most seasoned globetrotter. Sharp mountains, narrow straits, cozy fishing villages and a long, rich history are some of the many highlights the destination can offer.
The trip starts in Bodø, a city that is easily accessible by direct flight from both Oslo and Bergen. We spend the first night here before traveling the following morning by ferry to Moskenes (on the last departure of the summer, boat will be replaced by plane). The week we spend in Lofoten is flexible, in other words we adapt the day trips to weather and wind, there may therefore be changes in the days, but we try to reach all the goals described in the day-to-day programme. After a week in Lofoten, the trip ends at Evenes Airport, where there is a direct flight back to Oslo. If you wish to end the tour in Svolvær, you are of course free to do so as well.
