Lofoten Islands under the Midnight Sun

Hiking in the Lofoten in Spring

We believe that the best time of the year to explore the Lofoten archipelago is from May to mid-July. Early summer in the Lofoten Islands is when you can enjoy permanent daylight because the sun never sets. It is a magical time of year when nature, after the long winter months, offers a magnificent display of colours. The mountains are covered with abundant coloured flora, the seabirds that nest in the fishing ports are busy day and night feeding their young, the valleys resonate with the buzzing bees seeking nectar… the countryside has woken up and seems to live in accelerated modeat high speed to make the most of the fine summer days.
 In addition to the endless summer days, this time of year has the most settled weather (May and June are the driest months of the year), which is perfect for hiking and exploring the countryside. There are also fewer tourists in early summer, as they prefer to come in July and August.

The Guides

The Exploranor team is made up of approximately ten independent guides who have worked on the Lofoten Islands for many years. They all have very different knowledge and experience of a variety of destinations but they all have one thing in common: their fascination with this tiny area of Norway, the Lofoten Islands.
