PRESENTATION

This trip will let you discover Vestvågøya Island - the most varied in terms of landscapes of the Lofoten Islands - over sea and mountain. Sometimes in a sea kayak in narrow fjords or along huge white sand beaches, sometimes on a hike to sharp mountain peaks. The Lofotens are a natural paradise: discover them, accompanied by an experienced guide who knows the region perfectly.


DAY BY DAY

Day 1: You meet your guide in Bodø and then board the speedboat for the Lofotens. After crossing the beautiful Vestfjord, you arrive in the Lofoten Islands and get on a minibus to Stamsund. There you settle into an authentic fishermen's house (Sjøhus) for the next six nights.

Day 2: In the morning we leave our accommodation for a first kayak trip in the Vestfjord. After receiving instructions from your instructor, you board your double kayaks on the Vestfjord and head north to the Skifjord.

Day 3: Today we leave for one of the most beautiful hike on the islands, the ascent of the summit of Steinetinden. This very alpine hike follows a steep path on a spectacular ridge, offering beautiful views on Stamsund's and the Vestfjord.

Day 4: Departure from our accommodation for a sea kayak trip to the old village of Stamsund and the hamlet of Steine. During this trip we paddle along the coast between a multitude of islets.

Day 5: After a short transfer by minibus, we leave for a wonderful kayak trip in Skokkelvikøyan bay next the small hamlet of Valberg. Depending on the tide, we might be able to pick some edible seaweed for the aperitif.

Day 6: After a short transfer by minibus we begin a beautiful hike that will lead to the top of Guratinden. On the way we will cross one of the rare forests of Vestvågøya Island. The climb is progressive at the start, before the slope gets steeper all the way up to a pass from where the view over the Vestfjord is breathtaking. Access to the summit follows a beautiful ridgeline with a 360° view.

Day 7: Free morning, then transfer to the pier of Moskenes located in the south of the Lofotens, en route we will stop in the village of Reine, one of the most beautiful natural sites of the islands, then we will board the ferry that connects Moskenes to Bodø on the mainland. We spend the night in a comfortable hotel in Bodø.

Day 8: Transfer to the airport and return to France/Europe.
