    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.

    Itinerary

    Day 1 - Arrive in Svolvær and check into your fisherman's cottage

    On arrival in Svolvær you check into your own Rorbu (fisherman’s cottage) on stilts over the clear blue water. Just outside the vibrant fishing village, you will stay in cozy and comfortable rorbu cabins with kitchen, lounge and bedrooms. The rorbu cabins are idyllically located between the fish landing station, quayside buildings, fish racks and old local buildings. You will have the open ocean on one side, and the spectacular Lofoten mountains on the other.

    Accommodation
    Svinøya Rorbuer

    Day 2 - Dogsledding with an evening aurora chase guided drive

    After breakfast, transfer 40 minutes to Malnes, where Lila, the owner of the kennel, will warmly welcome you. Lila will teach you sledding and how to take care of the huskies. After instructions and getting the dogs ready, take off into beautiful Lofoten winter wonderland.

    You will drive in pairs; one steers the sled, the other is passenger, and at the halfway point you can switch. You will be on the sled for 45-60 minutes. Afterwards, you can meet and cuddle with all the 16 huskies, and relax by the bonfire with a warm drink.

    Spend the late afternoon enjoying the atmospheric wintery scenery. You may also visit local art galleries such as Gunnar Berg and meet the locals.

    In the evening, join an aurora chase with an experienced local guide. The guide will pick you up from the reception and you will have a lecture on northern lights before departure. The tour goes by minibus to an area with the best chances to see the lights this particular night. Away from artificial light pollution.

    Day 3 - RIB boat Sea Eagle Safari

    "The open sea, the steep mountains, the fresh air and crystal clear water…. an experience that never lets go."

    Today, enjoy a sea eagle safari by boat and visit the narrow waters of the Trollfjord. Be surrounded by mountains rising 1000 metres directly from the ocean. You are likely to experience sea eagles at close range as you venture into spectacular nature spots. Kitted out in a warm floating suit, the RIB boat speeds across the waters, stopping for photos of the white sandy beaches of Lofoten, the panorama view over the Svolvær town and the majestic mountain, Fløya, and Svolværgeita.
