    4 days - Seeing is believing - these islands are magical.

    Ready for an authentic experience in the Lofoten Archipelago - our secret gem in the Northern part of Norway. Laid out against ocean blues and greys, Lofoten's razor-sharp peaks poke dark against a clear, cobalt sky. In the pure, exhilarating air, there’s a constant tang of salt and, in the villages, more than a whiff of cod, that giant of the seas whose annual migration brings wealth. It's a dream for hikers, fishermen and all nature lovers.

    The Lofoten Islands are located just north of the Arctic Circle where you find the sea on one side and the dramatic mountains on the other, offering great views everywhere you look. The archipelago offer a number of activities, such as walking, Northern Lights evening tours, sea safaris and much more. Lofoten is one of our favourite destinations along the long Norwegian coast.
