  • Day 1: Your Lofoten Journey Begins

    Start your journey with an included flight from Oslo Gardermoen to Svolvær Airport, from where you will pick up your rental car. Then head to your first destination, the charming town of Svolvær, the “Capital of the Lofoten Islands”. Here you will find a variety of small galleries, shops and cultural attractions nestled under the town’s landmark mountain, Svolværgeita (the Svolvær Goat), a popular challenge for climbers.

    If you arrive early enough, we recommend walk to the nearby island of Svinøya for a visit to the Art Museum or a stroll around town for excellent views of the sea and surrounding islands.

    Spend the night in Svolvær.

  • Day 2: Henningsvær – Venice of Lofoten

    After breakfast at your hotel it’s time to drive to Henningsvær, sometimes called “The Venice of Lofoten” for its artistic vibes. Enjoy the incredible scenery along the narrow road to the village, which offers many impressive photo opportunities.

    Spend the night in Henningsvær.

  • Day 3: Ocean Views & Viking History

    Enjoy a laid-back day of sightseeing in the Lofoten area. We suggest a drive up to Gimsoy on the north side of the archipelago for fantastic ocean views and a beautiful sunlit glow. There you will also find Hov, one of the oldest inhabited places of the islands.

    For a taste of Viking history, make a stop to the Lofotr Viking Museum and check out its full-scale reconstruction of a Viking-era house along with the various Viking artefacts. You can even try your hand at one of the authentic Viking activities offered at the museum!

    After a full day of discoveries, head back to your hotel in Henningsvær.

  • Day 4: Scenic Drive Back to Svolvær

    Enjoy a relaxing morning in beautiful Henningsvær. There’s no hurry today, so you can drive back to Svolvær at your leisure and take breaks at various scenic viewpoints along the way. On return to Svolvær, we highly recommend a visit to the “Magic Icebar” with its gallery of magnificent ice sculptures.

    Spend the night in Svolvær.

  • Day 5: Departure

    After an enjoyable holiday in Lofoten drive the short distance up to Svolvær airport where you will drop of the car before your flight back home.

    Note: If you wish to extend your stay in Lofoten, we are happy to adjust your itinerary accordingly. Also, if you do not have enough time between connecting flights, an additional night in Oslo can be added to your package. Contact us for details.

Second time we choose your firm for our holidays and the result is outstanding

I’m back to work after these last two wonderful weeks in Norway. From beginning till end the trip was a real success.

Let me thank you once again for your contribution in the itinerary of the trip. All hotels were really well located -always in the city centre- and most of them where really nice. The Historic hotels were an experience, good suggestion! As for the weather we really cannot complain as we had sun for nearly 7 days without rain! So finally fantastic holidays! Be sure to count on us as customers of Nordic Visitor in the future, it’s the second time we choose your firm for our holidays and the result is outstanding.
