Sea Kayaking Norway – 8 Days Sea Kayaking in Lofoten Islands

Trip Highlights

Description

These impressively scenic islands form an archipelago one hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. It is a place of mystical landscapes illuminated by nearly continuous daylight. Glacially carved, shear granite spires rise out of a sea made rich by the meeting of the warm Gulf Stream and the Arctic Ocean. The Islands are fringed with green pastureland and dotted with picturesque fishing villages each with its own unique character and dramatic mountain backdrop. This is a true Arctic sea kayaking adventure with the advantage of finishing every day with a hot shower and a warm bed.

You’ll kayak the length of this remarkable chain of islands through indigo-blue fjords cutting between jagged peaks, stopping at white sand beaches and hiking to viewpoints for incredible panoramic vistas. At the end of each paddling day you’ll stay in “rorbus”, traditional fishermen’s lodges with time to explore these charming villages and sample the local cuisine. Great kayaking, spectacular scenery and Norway’s seafaring culture make the Lofoten Islands one of the world’s great paddling destinations.

Why take this tour?

We chose the Lofoten Islands as the venue for Norway’s first-ever guided sea kayak trip back in the late 1990s. These majestic islands with their surreal location were the perfect place to introduce Norway to adventure travelers; now over 20 years later, our iconic Lofoten Islands sea kayak expedition has become a classic in international sea kayaking destinations; a highly ranked bucket list trip.
