Mountains of Lofoten

Mountains of Lofoten Overview

Six invigorating days walking above the Arctic Circle, with an aim to summit five different mountains. Stay in a beautiful and comfortable converted vicarage, near to the beach with super views across the dramatic mountain, fjord and coastal scenery.

The natural beauty of the Lofoten archipelago, lying to the west of Norway, derives from its jagged mountains which rise abruptly from the crystal clear sea, and a coastline dotted with secluded white sand beaches. Here, above the Arctic Circle, the sun never sets during the summer, giving unlimited opportunity to enjoy the stunning scenery — even at midnight. Based at the lovely Old Vicarage on the coast of Flakstadøy Island, a traditional lodge with stylish Scandinavian décor, this walking holiday has been designed to make the most of the impressive landscape. We aim to walk to a different summit each day for far-reaching views of the mountains, fjords and fishing villages of Lofoten, and even across to the mainland. To give our legs a rest, we also spend a day visiting a Viking Museum to learn about the history of the islands, before taking a leisurely walk along the beautiful pristine coast.
