Lofoten Islands in a nutshell
The world's most beautiful islands above the Arctic Circle
Situated above the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten archipelago offers dramatic, imposing beauty everywhere you look. In Lofoten, you will find steep mountains, white sandy beaches, cozy fishing villages, and an authentic way of life. All is ready for you to enjoy - under the alluring Midnight Sun.
If you're looking for a unique holiday destination this summer, Lofoten is the place for you. On this self-guided tour, you will experience a vibrant coastal culture and breathtaking scenery in a sustainable way. Skip the hassle of renting and driving a car, and travel comfortably in a modern low-emission bus instead!
Your Lofoten adventure starts in Svolvær, Lofoten's biggest town. From here you travel southwards on the archipelago to the charming fishing village of Henningsvær. Explore the authentic surroundings, enjoy lunch and sample some of the local delicacies! The bus will also stop at Skagsanden, one of Lofoten's most gorgeous beaches.
The tour continues on to Reine, located between the rugged North Sea and the majestic Lofoten Alps. Reine is often described as Lofoten’s most scenic village and is the perfect base for anyone wanting to explore Lofoten on hikes, kayaking trips, or fishing expeditions. Here, you stay in comfortable, authentic, and traditional “rorbuer”, charming cabins by the sea.
For hikers, we recommend the hike up to Reinebringen, arguably the best lookout point in Lofoten! Or perhaps you would like to venture out on the water on a stunning Midnight Sun kayaking trip?
After one or more nights in Reine, you continue by bus to Nusfjord, a secluded and tranquil fishing village. A visit to Nusfjord is perhaps one of the most authentic ways to experience traditional Lofoten. Taking a stroll in the little village feels like walking inside a museum where people actually live!
The tour then continues back to Svolvær, where you end your journey or travel on to your preferred endpoint.
