Overview

200km north of the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten Islands rise like a barricade out of the vast Norwegian Sea. The islands form a chain of sharp granite peaks, soaring ridgelines and rocky outcrops covered in boisterous colonies of sea birds, which contrast with the calm sheltered bays, deep glacier cut fjords, long silver-sanded beaches and tiny fishing villages dotted with colourful fisherman’s ‘Rorbu'. 


For this week long walking holiday we will be based in the tiny village of Fredvang (linked to the other islands by just a single bridge), and Sorvagen, a traditional working fishing village and a postcard perfect mix of red Rorbu, fishing boats and wooden racks of drying stockfish. Our accommodation will be comfortable fishermen's ‘rorbu’  or ‘Sjohus’, right next to the sea.


Our experts have spent years seeking out the quietest and most rewarding trails to perfect this collection of walks. Among the highlights will be the ascent of Ryten (543m) where we can enjoy the iconic view down over Kvalvika Beach, the ferry journey up Kjerkfjord from Reine, the trek to the stunningly located Munkebu Refuge (410m) and the panoramic views from Volvandstinden (457m) and Nesfjellet (406m). 


Come and discover the secrets of Europe’s most northerly wilderness outpost!


NOTE: Though each departure of this holiday includes the same walks the order of the itineraries (and the number of nights in Fredvang/Sorvagen) do vary between departures.

Is this holiday for you?

The average ascent and descent will be around 500/600m but, due to the topography of the island, some of the climbs will be steep. It will of course be possible to choose to sit out some of the walks.Given good weather conditions, this is a moderate level hiking holiday at low elevation. However, if the weather is not cooperative (conditions can be unpredictable, even in the summer) it becomes rather tougher and you should be prepared for this. This holiday is suitable for experienced weekend walkers, looking a unique experience and who are prepared for a variety of terrain and potentially changeable weather. During week we will be sleeping in specially converted Rorbuer or Sjohus. Colourful and comfortable, these quirky accommodation are equipped with a kitchen, living rooms, dining rooms, bathroom and bedrooms with unually 2 - 4 beds.The Tour Leader (with the group’s assistance) will prepare meals from fresh local ingredients, using the facilities provided at the accommodations.

The group will meet at our hostel accommodation in Bodo. Bodo is the largest town in the county of Nordland, situated on a peninsula of mainland Norway. Flight time allowing there will be some time to look around the city's pretty harbour, enjoy the views of the surrounding peaks and look for white-tailed sea eagles (Bodo is home to one of the biggest population in the world). In the evening we will meet with our guide so we can discuss the plan for the coming days.

Today we begin by taking the morning ferry to the Southern end of the Lofoten Islands. The journey takes around 3hrs and we will enjoy some spectacular views as we approach the port of Moskenes. We transfer to the north of the island Flakstadova and check into our accommodation for the next 2 nights.

Our first walk begins nearby on the Ytresand plateau, which we cross to reach the small peaks of Mulstotinden (222m) and Litlberget (281m), from the summits, we can enjoy superb views of Fredvang Bay and its beautiful white sand beach. We return to our accommodation in Fredvang.

Today's objective is Ryten (543m) and the beautiful beach at Kvalvika that sits below it. The beginning of the trail can be a little boggy but after a short distance we are heading up hill, the trail is steep and rocky in places and we will need to take care when wet, especially when descending down to the beach. We pick up the trail up Ryten on the right hand side of the beach; the trail takes us steeply up, but then flattens as we pass by a small lake before continuing up the last stretch towards the ridge we follow around towards the summit. After some time to admire the view we return back down to spend some time exploring the beach, which is often covered in driftwood swept all the way from Siberia. Until the last century this wood was pretty much the only source of wood available, it was collected and used to build houses, to make furniture, boats and burnt for firewood. In the afternoon we return to our accommodation.

Once again, the panoramic view from the summits are magical: we will be able to spot Fredvang and Ramberg Bays, fjords, the Stjerntindan range (934m), Masstinden (750m) and more... this is one of the most beautiful view points of the region! We descend and transfer to the fishing village of Sorvagen, one of the northernmost village of Lofoten on the island of Moskenesoya.

After breakfast we drive for 15mins to reach the village of Reine, which has been voted as the most beautiful village in Norway. Its location is simple stunning, surrounded by the sea, fjords, and vertical walls of rock. From Reine we catch the speedboat service, which serves the small hamlets surrounding Reinefjorden and Kjerkfjorden; Vindstad, Rostad and Kirkefjord, some of which are only accessible by boat. We disembark at Vindstad, a journey of around 30 mins. The views as we speed up the fjords will be some of the best of the holiday. From Vindstad from where we make the return walk to Bunesstranda (Bunes Beach) via a small pass of around 150m. As it only accessible on foot or by boat, Bunes beach, with its pristine silver sand and crystal arctic water surrounded by cliffs, is one of the Lofoten Island's most scenic and isolated and we'll have some time here to soak in the views, or dip our feet in the cold, clear water. We return to Vindstad to take the ferry back to Reine. We have some time to look around Reine before returning to Sorvagen.

Today is dedicated to the climb to the small refuge of Munkebu. We traverse around the shores of Sorvagvatnet (the large lake in the centre of Sorvagen), before verging off. We will encounter a couple of short rocky sections, where chains have been fitted to provide assistance in wet conditions. Our trail weaves between mountain lakes and past a series of small ponds as we climb and there are some boggy sections. Next, we climb up towards Djupfjordheia from where we descend down to Munkebu hut. Here we have the choice to wait at the hut, or make the optional ascent Munkan Peak (775m) for a breathtaking view. Afterwards we retrace our steps back down toward Sorvagvatnet, traversing around the opposite shore from this morning to return to Sorvagen.

Essential Information

We've compiled some of our Frequently Asked Questions to help you learn more about this amazing trip.

  • A professional and qualified tour leader
  • All land transport and ferry journeys mentioned in the itinerary
  • Accommodation as described
  • Meals as described in the Meal Plan

  • Travel insurance
  • Some meals as described in the Meal Plan
  • Miscellaneous expenses - drinks and souvenirs etc

The group will meet at the hostel in Bodo.

All clients arriving on Day 1 and departing on Day 8 will receive complimentary airport transfers on arrival and departure.

Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals except 2 dinners are included in the holiday price. On the days in Bodo where there is a variety of options the choice is yours. Depending on flight times, this means you will pay directly for a total of 2 dinners. We recommend you budget at least £30 for each of these meals.

Water is drinkable from the taps on this holiday. Please fill your personal bottles for your day in the morning. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Breakfasts and evening meals will be prepared by out Tour Leader (with the group’s assistance) in the kitchens provided at the accommodations. Supplies will be purchased at local food stores, depending on the tastes of the group. At dinner time local specialities will predominate, so expect lots of fresh and cured fish and meat. We can certainly expect to sample some Stockfish, as this is the Lofoten island’s biggest export. Stockfish is unsalted fish, especially cod, dried by cold air and wind on wooden racks on the foreshore. We’ll see these drying racks all over the island. The choice of fruits and vegetables will be less varied.

Lunches will be cold picnics made each morning from a selection of items provided by the guide. Breakfasts will be buffet in style with a choice of cereals, bread, jams, meat, cheese, juice, tea and coffee. Those looking to sample traditional Norwegian foods should look out for cloudberry jam and brunost, an unusual brown whey cheese with a sweet caramelised flavour.

Each morning we will also make up our own packed lunches from the food provided at breakfast.

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

For our two nights in Bodo we will be accommodated in a hostel in simple double to quad rooms. Bedding is provided.

During our nights in Fredvang and Sorvagen (2/3 nights depending on departure) we will stay in specially converted rorbu or sjohus.

Rorbu are the most traditional type of accommodation in the Lofoten Islands. Usually red in colour and planted on stilts in the sea, they once served as a shelter for fishermen. They are now comfortably furnished for visitors, with an equipped kitchen, rooms with two to four beds (so 4 to 8 sharing one rorbu in total). There will be a shared bathroom with toilet and a hot shower. The huts are electrically heated and often have a wood burner

Sjøhus (pronounced "cheuhusse") were originally housing for fishermen and fish factory workers. In the Sjohus there are 2 to 6 beds per room with a shared toilet and shower room.

You are required to bring a sheet sleeping bag (sleeping bags are prohibited), a pillowcase and a towel.

Accommodation in the Lofoten Islands is in high demand in the summer and it is necessary for us to be flexible with the accommodation. It is possible that we might not use the originally intended accommodation in each of the locations, so sometime a short taxi journey or a slightly longer transfer will be required.

Single rooms are available at the hostel in Bodo for an additional cost.

The group will be led by a professional and qualified tour leader.

All meals except 2 dinners are included in the holiday price. £100-150 (or equivalent in US dollars, Euros etc) should be sufficient to cover your miscellaneous expenses, including non included meals. This will also allow you to pay reasonable tips to the Tour Leader. Credit and debit cards can be used to withdraw Norwegian Kroner from ATM’s on arrival at the airport and in the town itself. If you are intending to buy expensive souvenirs, you should budget accordingly (credit cards can be useful in this respect).

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ to your tour leader. Tipping is entirely voluntary and should be dependent on good service. We recommend that you decide levels of tipping and give any tips as a group rather than from individual group members.

There is no weight limit other than that imposed by your airline, but as space is restricted in our minibus transport, we do ask you to restrict your luggage to one main item of baggage and one daysack.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

Europe

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)

  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

For the latest details on visiting countries within the EU or the European Economic Area (EEA), please check the UK Government website

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Vaccinations

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations.

GHIC / Medical cover

UK residents should carry a free Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). This entitles you to state provided medical treatment when you're visiting an EU country or Switzerland. This is not a substitute for medical travel insurance which is vital when travelling overseas.

The unit of currency in Norway is the Norwegian Krone.

Getting some additional exercise before coming on an active holiday makes a lot of sense. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience.You should be aerobically fit and comfortable with walking 3 to 6 hours for consecutive days. Hill walking, with a good amount of ascent and descent, is the best training. Running, cycling and swimming are also good for developing cardiovascular fitness and stamina.

Due to the Gulf Stream the Lofoten Islands has a reasonably mild temperature compared to other destinations of the same latitude. From late May to mid July the sun does not drop below the horizon, meaning you can experience the ‘midnight sun’ if travelling during that period. June is generally the driest month, but July and August are warmest with an average temperature of 12°C. Rain and storms are always a possibility and you should be prepare for this.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

It is an essential condition of joining a holiday with KE Adventure Travel that you have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the cost of medical treatment and to protect the value of your holiday in the event of cancellation.  When taking out insurance please ensure the policy you choose covers you for the activities and altitude included in your itinerary.

For appropriate insurance cover we recommend Campbell Irvine Direct.  Please go to our Travel Insurance page for further information and to get a quote.
