This week is dedicated to the most beautiful and rugged mountains, fjords, and beaches that Lofoten has to offer. We explore the island by boat, and the whole of Lofoten is our playground. Join us on this highlight of a trip exploring the best of Lofoten!

With seven days at our disposal, the Lofoten mountains seen from different angles and with the midnight sun will give us a real summer and holiday feeling. Being on a sailboat, we are flexible and move smoothly around amongst the islands. During the trip we go hiking, fishing, kayaking, surfing, and when we moore up we can make a bonfire on the beach. We will also sail to and visit some of the best and most exciting cultural sites and restaurants in Lofoten. There will be many fun moments both onboard and on land, and you will get to know the Lofoten area very well.

We begin the tour in Svolvær and start sailing west to Reine, an amazing fishing village and a good starting point for fishing, hiking and fun on shore. The tour continues to Nusfjord, then through Nappstraumen to the north of Lofoten, and to Unstad. Here it is possible to surf or sup-board for those who wish. From Unstad we go to the small island of Skrova, and here from the top we have a fantastic 360 degree view of the Lofoten wall to the west, the Vestfjord in the south, and Steigen and Hamarøy in the east. In the end we top off the adventure with sailing into the fjord landscape of Trollfjorden and Raftsundet. The tour ends in Svolvær with breakfast ashore at “Kringla” at the city square, the city's best café and bakery.

Along the way on this tour there are opportunities to do unplanned activities at the places we land, such as surfing at Unstad Arctic Surf.  All our planned activities along the way are optional. If you prefer to take a break in the boat and write poems or do yoga, or do nothing at all, that's what you will do.

In the summertime we sail together with our other boats. See pictures and read more about our boats here.

Like on all our trips, you learn to sail along the way, and you will get both challenges and feelings of achievement- as well as friends for life!

This week was really incredibly great! Very nice program, nice with both a lot of sailng and ocean - and the possibility to climb some mountains. The split into cabins, watches etc. worked well. Our skipper was skilled and sympathic, and he managed to include all of us and balance our wishes and requests as we went along. Well done! Got so fan of the whole trip that I’m considering moving to Lofoten some day!
