THE TRIP:

This trip runs through the most famous area of Northern Norway, the Lofoten Islands. An archipelago made up of mountainous islands sculpted by ice from the old glacier. The purpose of this trip is to explore and get to know first-hand all the famous corners that hide this area, traveling in a comfortable van and carrying out daily excursions and activities. Every day we will discover hidden gems of Lofoten, stepping out from the typical routes, hiking to the beaches, cliffs and driving between smallest islands, but without omitting the must-see places such as Reine, Ramberg or Å. We will revive the Viking’s traditions in the stunning LOFTR museum, observe the beautiful dance of the humpback and killer whales from a deck of a ship and on the last day enjoy a unique spa with hot tubs and saunas with lunch on a traditional Norwegian fishing boat transformed to a first-class vessel, in Tromsø. The journey begins in Bodo and ends in Tromsø and throughout the trip, we will be above the Arctic Circle, which determines the hours of daylight (up to 20h!) and the vegetation/fauna that we will find.
