PRESENTATION

The Lofoten Islands are an archipelago lying inside the arctic circle offering a wide range of landscapes enhanced by the dazzling arctic light. The blue of the water mirrors that of the sky and the red of the fishermen’s huts stands out against the deep green of the meadows. Nature is wild, the fjords ever present and the mountains are majestic. An ideal trip for those visiting the Lofoten Islands for the first time!


DAY BY DAY

Day 1: arrival at Bodø airport and transfer by high-speed boat to Svolvaer in the north of the Lofoten Islands, then by minibus to Stamsund where we spend the three next nights.

Day 2: after a short transfer, we set off on a nice hike that takes us to the summit of Kartstaven from where we will have a magnificent view of the Kartfjorden and the Vestfjord.

Day 3: this hike starts directly from our accommodation and climbs a plateau separating the Storfjord and the Vestfjord. Beautiful views on the village and the bay, as well as on the west coast of Vestvågøya Island.

Day 4: transfer by minibus and hike to the summit of Guratinden. On the way we will cross one of the few forests of the islands. We access the top by following a beautiful ridge line, from which you'll have a 360° view over Vestvågøya and its turquoise inlets. In the afternoon, transfer by minibus to our accommodation in Ballstad, where we settle for the next three nights.

Day 5: today we start walking directly from our accommodation, in a bucolic environment that will lead us to the valley of Kyllingdalen. We pass several trout lakes before we reach the end of the valley where the climb to the summit of Breidtinden begins. At the top, you'll discover a magnificent panorama, with the great plain of Leknes to the north.

Day 6: on the program today: the Ballstadheia plateau! The top of Ballstadheia is a large "Alpine" meadow where some sheep graze during the short summer season. From here you'll get one of the most beautiful panoramas of the trip! We have an overview of the Lofoten archipelago in the morning light. Picnic at the top and return by the beautiful granitic seaside in the afternoon.

Day 7: morning spent in Ballstad. Transfer to Moskenes located at the south of the islands and return journey to the mainland by ferry in the early afternoon. Night at Bodø in a city-centre hotel and unaccompanied evening.

Day 8: in the morning, transfer by minibus/taxi to Bodø airport and return to your home country.
