Into the Wild are excited to offer a 1 week mountain hiking, kayaking and Viking culture tour on the Lofoten Islands mountain chain of North Norway.
Into the wild are excited to offer an 8 day mountains-to-sea active holiday in Lofoten Islands, in Norway.
We have drawn up a schedule with the finest peaks and best scenery in mind.
Our usual Into the wild flexibility means we keep all options open each day and tailor the days activity to suit the group and the weather!
During the week we will stay in comfortable cottages (Rorbu) in the village of Nusfjord, a beautiful bay with a picturesque, old, fishing village.
From this base we will be able to reach all of the mountains of the Western end of the Island chain, each trip lasting 6-8 hours. We will restrict our gear and equipment to the essentials (rainwear, a change of clothes and a packed lunch) each day and in the evening relax and dine out at an excellent restaurant.
The walks on Lofoten can be demanding and feature many steep ascents and frequently non-existent trails. However, the rewards of our efforts are the astounding views of the Atlantic Ocean and the peaks of the Lofoten Island chain.
To fully enjoy Lofoten, it is recommended for you to be fit and active and have some previous experience of mountain walking. We take in anything up to 1,000m altitude each day hiking with a few days in the week reserved for a fantastic kayaking trip and some cultural tours.
If you are interested, please get in touch and we’ll talk it over :-)
