Walking The Lofoten Islands

Drive from Reine in the south to the island’s capital, Svolvær, in the north, taking in classic hikes, sandy beaches, and traditional fishing villages along the way. Boarding the ferry at Bodø, the silhouette of the imposing ’Lofoten Wall’ can soon be spotted on the horizon, marking the start of a trip of a lifetime. Travel around the islands by car (included) and stay in three towns; Reine, Nusfjord and Svolvær, all superb bases for exploration. 

Expect moderate walks, involving an ascent up summits for far-reaching views of the surrounding towns, mountains, and on a clear day, even as far as mainland Norway. Reward yourself with a leisurely lunch of fresh prawns or gourmet fish and chips. Stay in idyllically located Rorbuer cabins, a real home from home with all the comfort and amenities of a hotel. Relax waterside with a glass of wine and watch the sun disappear behind the towering peaks, ready to do it all over again the next day!
