8 DAYS self-guided tour
minimum 2 people - Arrival/departure: LEKNES
This is a very complete Self-guided journey intended for nature lovers. It will enable you to explore the archipelago of the Lofoten Islands from north to south (from Svolvær to Å i Lofoten).
The Lofoten Islands are a world in themselves, combining both the hardness of steep mountains, the gentleness of lush valleys and small fishing ports nestled at the end of fjords. The unique, surprising combination of Alps in the middle of the Norwegian Sea, provides perfect terrain for hiking.
The bespoke nature of the tour enables you to choose one of several options each day or to combine them all depending on how you feel, and how fit you are. You can visit a Viking museum and/or set off on a hike in the wilderness or, if you feel up to it, go kayaking in a large fjord in the south of the islands.
