Extended Description

Lofoten Isles – Norway

Deluxe-Touring on the Lofoten Isles. Thanks to the Gulf Stream influence, these islands off the west coast of Norway normally have a thick coat of snow from the tops of the mountains right down to the sea. Although it can be busy here in the summer, the winter is very quiet, and you might well find that we are the only people for miles. We have been several times now and know the backcountry well enough to claim with some confidence that we know the best spots. Depending on the weather we will either stay central, or move out further west. With any luck we will get to enjoy the Northern Lights in all their glory, and can attack the region’s highest peak after a night in a traditional Sami-tent. This night in the tent is however optional, and only possible if the conditions are right. For the rest we will be staying in warm refuges with fantastic food in Svolvær or Kabelvåg. The Lofotens will blow you away!
