Walk the best trails on the Lofoten Islands of Moskensoya and Flakstadoya on this walking holiday in Norway
200km north of the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten Islands rise like a barricade out of the vast Norwegian Sea. A chain of sharp granite peaks, punctuated with brightly coloured fishermen's huts, coves with crystal clear water, green meadows and white sandy beaches. Our experts have spent years seeking out the quietest and most rewarding trails in this part of Norway and this collection of walks have been specially selected to highlight all the Lofoten Islands have to offer those that love the outdoors. Whether exploring the high ridges, cruising the deep fjords, or discovering the pristine beaches, you are certain to enjoy breath-taking panoramas, across wild and unspoilt nature, and an abundance of fresh air. 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 made up of red, stilted, fisherman's rorbuer (cabins). Our walks will concentrate on the islands of Moskenesoya and Flakstadoya, which means we'll spend very limited time in a vehicle and maximum time exploring, relaxing and just breathing in the outdoors. The Lofoten Islands have a reputation as an expensive destination, to keep the cost of this adventure as reasonable as possible, we'll be using comfortable hostel/multi-share accommodation, and preparing meals as a group under the instruction of our tour leader.Accommodation in the Lofoten Islands is in high demand. Each departure of this holiday includes the same walks but, to allow us to use our preferred accommodations, the order of the walks and the number of nights spent in Fredvang/Sorvagen does vary.
