With each step you take, the natural scenery will change before your eyes, and there will always be a beautiful surprise awaiting you. The proposed hike is suitable for everyone and is not overly difficult. This excursion is for those who, because of day-to-day stress, no longer have the patience to wait, to listen, for those who are no longer used to closely observing their surroundings. Going on foot is not monotonous or boring. It will help you synchronise with nature and with yourself. With every footstep, the panorama will transform in front of you, and you will be constantly amazed by the variation.

Svolvær Seakayaking

When you embark in a sea kayak you practically sit on the surface of the sea and can navigate it using your own bodily strength. We use stable tandem kayaks on our trips and all necessary equipment is included. Our guide meets you at our base in Svolvær harbour and provides you with the necessary instructions and adjusts your equipment for the trip. This is a two-hour long trip, tailored to suit those who wish to try out kayaking or who have little experience, but who also wish to learn about Lofoten’s history and culture from the shoreline. If its rain or windy we recommend a water repellent jacket.

Availability: July – October (does not run daily)

Duration: 2 hours

Includes: Guide, Kayak and Equipment


Svolvær – Sea Eagle Safari to Trollfjorden

The tour starts from the quayside in Svolvær, and will take you through Raftsundet before we enter Trollfjorden. This is some of the most dramatic scenery that Norway has to offer and in an open boat you will get close to the elements.
