Kayak Nature Safari

You cannot get closer to nature than this! Our 3 hour nature safari takes you out on a kayak trip out of the ordinary. Together with our experienced guide you will be introduced to Lofotens bird and marine life.

The combination of silence, raw nature on all sides, and full freedom of motion, makes sea kayaking one of our most popular adventures.

Lofoten’s nature has unique and spectacular contrasts and kayaking is a great way to experience these. 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.

You can appreciate Lofoten’s dramatic mountains from a wholly new perspective when you paddle up close to them. It is an experience almost as majestic as standing on top of them.

You receive a solid introduction before we embark on the double kayaks from Nyvågar in Kabelvåg where our knowledgeable guides meet you 30 minutes before departure.

The weather in Lofoten changes a lot from day to day, which is some of the charm of the islands. You should dress to suit the weather, and our recommendation is that on a cold summer day you wear wool underwear. Bring a water bottle too.
Other timings and group arrangements on request.

Tour description

As always, hiking in Lofoten is at your own risk, so make sure you follow the path and watch out. Even if the path towards the top follows the Sherpa steps, it is very steep and parts of it can be demanding. You follow the stairs built into the steep mountain side and if you need a break, there are several nice spots with benches built along the path, allowing you a rest before the last few metres. The stairs finish ca 150 metres before the top, so make sure you walk very carefully and watch out for loose rocks. If a rock comes loose, it may roll down the mountain side and cause injury to other people hiking up the stairs further down. The hike is not recommended for young children and for safety reasons, this hike is strictly not recommended in the winter season.

Reinebringen is far from one of the highest mountains in Lofoten, but the view from the top of Reinebringen is known for being one of the most spectacular ones. It is a favourite among many hikers and you will soon understand why when you reach the top. Sit down and enjoy the great view over the picturesque Reine village and the wild fjords and mountains. We also recommend the hike during the midnight sun season in Lofoten, as it is maybe even more beautiful at that time. And not least, there may be less people. The hike is extremely popular among locals and tourists alike.

It is very important to wear sturdy shoes, take plenty of water to drink and a wind proof jacket. An extra set of dry clothes is also recommended. And do not forget a fully charged camera battery, so you can bring your memories with you back home. But do not forget to enjoy the moment!

It could be that the mountain is closed during parts of the summer in order to complete the work on the steps. It is therefore a good idea to visit the Reinebringen Facebook page for updated information, or visit the local tourist information. As of January 2020, the mountain path had 1566 steps and several benches along the beautifully built Sherpa steps. You can read more about Reine and surrounding areas on Wikipedia.

Parking

If you decide to travel to see Reinebringen and arrive by car – you find parking at Reine Ytre Havn (outer harbour). This is where the hike starts. You first walk through the centre of beautiful Reine towards Reinehalsen (viewpoint by the main road) and then walk further along the E10 direction Å. Follow the old road outside of the tunnel. You find this at the left side of the road, outside the road fence. If you arrive by bus, the nearest bus stop is «Reine kryss» (Moskenes).

 

More useful advice

  • If you require an experienced tour guide to accompany you on a hike, you may book hikes in many beautiful Lofoten mountains here.
  • Take care of Lofoten when you visit – read more about how to be a responsible guest

 

Frequently asked questions:

Where is Reinebringen located?

Reinebringen is located in Moskenes island just close to the fishing village Reine.

Is it true that there may be rock falls?

Yes, that’s correct. Rock falls may occur in the mountains. There are ca 150 steps left to be completed in the Sherpa stairs. So please take extra care when you walk up the stairs and look out for loose rocks.

Is it correct that Reinebringen may be closed at times?  

Reinebringen has been closed at times due to work on the steps up the mountain. Please visit the Reinebringen Facebook page for updated and correct information about the Reinebringen path.

Can I do the hike if I am scared of heights?

Some parts of the hike can be very steep and «airy», and even if most of the path is built on steps, the hike is considered to be of medium difficulty.

When will the remaining steps be finished? 

Reinebringen will be closed when the remaining steps are being built, but this will not be done before the autumn 2022 because of the corona virus. We recommend that you visit the Reinebringen Facebook page for updates.

Is the hike suitable for children? 

Locals and mountain guides do not recommend the hike for small children. It is possible to go on the top for children who are used to go hiking in steep mountains, but the top has a small area and on sunny days it will be crowded.

Are there accommodation close to Reinebringen?

Yes, you can find accommodation close by in Reine, Hamnøy or Sørvågen.

Guidet midnattsoltur til Himmeltinden

Bli med oss på en uforglemmelig kveldstur med spektakulær utsikt!

Vår lokalkjente og erfarne guide tar deg med fra havnivå og opp til Vestvågøys høyeste fjell på utrolige 931 m.o.h.

Perfekt for deg som er aktiv, har Fjelltur i Lofoten på din Bucket list, men føler deg tryggest med en veiviser. Her får du en spennende tur, med tryggheten av en kjent veiviser med masse kunnskap om Lofoten.

Denne noe krevende turen tar ca 5 timer opp og ned. Turen er ikke teknisk vanskelig å gå, men kan være tidvis bratt.

Hovedtoppen på 964 m.o.h. er avstengt (radaranlegg). Vi går til fortoppen og utsikten kan ikke beskrives med ord.

Himmeltinden gir utsikt over storhavet og yttersiden av Lofoten og er perfekt for å kunne se midnattssola og solnedgangen. Du får også utsikt over bygdene Uttakleiv og Haukland og de vakre hvite sandstrendene.
Vi avslutter med en forfriskende dukkert i havet for den som vil.

Tungt - men flott!
«Turen er tung, som å gå i en veldig lang og bratt trapp... men aldri skummel. Ingen farlige partier, så kan trygt gås også om man har høydeskrekk. Fantastisk utsikt!»

Mange pauser
«Fantastisk tur! Vi fikk med oss gutta våre på 10 og 12 år, med nok mange kakao og kvikklunsj-pauser. Flott terreng å gå i. En vanvittig vakker utsikt verdt strevet opp de 931 m.

Full day tour to Vinjedalen

We ride across the beach on Hov and further across the Viking road and through the nature reserve on Gimsøy.

After food and rest we ride by the beach at Vinje before the trip goes over to Hov. On this trip there are several long stretches with good opportunities for a lot of silence and canter, and for you to get to know your horse.

Låven at Hov

In May 2018 we finished restoring the barn above the stables and made it a cozy restaurant and coffee shop. Here we serve tasty local and short-lived food, delicious coffee & homebaked cakes. The barn is opened every day and seats up to 100 guests.

The venue has all rights and is opened to all kinds of arrangements. Combine the dining experience on the barn with a horseback ride, a hike on the Hoven or just a stroll on the beautiful Hov beach. One of Europe’s best golf courses Lofoten Links and Lofoten Links Lodges, with perhaps Lofoten’s highest standard of accommodation, is located within a walking distance.

The restoration of the barn from the 1950s started already in 2016 and has been going on for over a year. The work was carried out by local contractors and by the farm’s own employees. To the north we have installed large windows that give beautiful view to the ocean, midnight sun and the northern lights. The tables are handmade with 100-year-old timbers by our neighbor craftswoman and the lights in the ceiling are the original milk tanks from the farm. We have taken care of the original construction so that the room gives a very authentic and rustic feel. At the same time, it is insulated according to today’s requirements and is warm and inviting throughout the year. The large fireplace and the soft retro-style chairs create a nice atmosphere even on dark winter evenings. Here you can enjoy a great meal, contemplate the view with a group of friends or just relax by the fireplace with a good book and a local beer. We are prepared to host also the youngest customers with a kids corner full of games and toys and a simple menu for kids.

The venue is as well suitable for meetings, workshops and conferences and can be reserved for this throughout the year. In the ceiling we have installed a high-class projector as well as a large canvas for film screenings and presentations. This together with a professional soundsystem and acoustic panels make the barn the perfect place for whole-day meetings and smaller conferences, as well as courses in northern lights photography and lectures or discussions.

Set up your next arrangement, Christmas table or company meeting at Låven, combined with horseback or golf activities and accommodation at Lofoten Links.

Sørvågen Radio-a Telecom Museum

LOCAL AND NATIONAL TELECOM HISTORY Why did the first morse code signal in Northern Europe emanate from the telegraph station in Sorvagen, far west of Lofoten, in 1906? The telegraph was developed as early as 1861, with Sorvagen as the terminus. Why? And where were these signals sent? To which ship was the same wireless message sent in 1908?

Our Telecom Museum, Sørvågen Radio at Sørvågen provides answers to these and many other questions. The museums exhibition appeals to many age groups and interests, with its rich collection of newer and older pieces related to the topic. The information is visual and funny. Check out the exhibition of mobile phones and compare your own with the 1973 edition – there’s quite a difference!
There are not only phones and old switchboards, but also a good explanation as to why Lofoten and Sørvågen were among the first to adopt modern technology.

The museum is located in the “Telebygget” from 1914, designed by Georgine (Lilla) Hansen (1872-1962), the fist female achitect of Norway.

For updated opening hours please check the Museum`s website at Museum Nord!

We provide a safe and comfortable transfer around the islands with guiding about the locations that we visit alongside time for photos and questions throughout the day.

Traditional fishing villages, steep mountains, white sand beaches, dried fish, stunning roads and bridges, this tour really provides everything in one amazing day.


Due to busy roads and rapidly changing weather conditions, we want to acknowledge that the route may change on the day, regardless below you can find a list of our 5 favourite locations that we want to explore with you!

1. Kabelvåg

Kabelvåg is an important historical fishing village located just 5 Kilometers (3.1 Miles) and about a 10 minute drive from Svolvær. This village is a popular day visit and offers a picturesque atmosphere with its blend of historic importance and modern updates of a typical Norwegian coastal town, known for its cod fishing. In the middle ages Kabelvåg became the most important cod fishing harbours on the Norwegian coast, and contributed to the dry cod from “Nordland” accounting for almost 80% of Norway's export in the 13th century.

Kabelvåg has traces of settlements from the late stone age, and now offers attractions such as the Lofoten Museum, Lofoten Aquarium and Vågan Church (known as the Lofoten Cathedral).

2. Haukland Beach

Haukland Beach is one of Lofoten’s most famous beach and hike, located on the westside on Lofoten. The caribbean like-waters, mountain landscape in the background, and white sand beach make Haukland Beach, a popular destination for travelers and photo-seekers year round.

Haukland beach is Lofoten’s “swimming beach”, although the water temperatures don’t reach above 15 degrees, you’ll see locals and tourists enjoying the water in the summer sun (water temperatures range from 3-15 degrees). Haukland beach is a unique destination in Lofoten as it offers the possibility to easy access from the road that takes you all the way to the beach.

3. Hamnøy Bridge

Hamnøy Bridge is yet another very photogenic location in the outer parts of Lofoten. The bridge connects the island Hamnøya with the island of Toppøya, and is one of the most popular viewpoints for photography in all of Lofoten.

Logistics on the small island can be challenging, due to the volume of visitors passing by, but the rewarding views are worth the effort of a short leg stretcher around the island, the view’s won't disappoint you! Traditionally Hamnøy was connected to Reine by ferry, but replaced by this beautiful bridge as part of European route E10.

4. Sakrisøya

Sakrisøya is a very small island just North of Reine and West of Hamnøy bridge. It’s probably one of the most photogenic islands in scandinavia, and every day a large amount of visitors drive through the small village. A unique blend between a traditional fishing village, with the sound and smell of the ocean with stunning views of the dramatic mountain landscape in the background is a dream for every photographer and explorer. On the island we’ll find a fishing industry, small cabins for rent and a dolls & toy museum.

5. Reine

This small fishing village on the outer part of Lofoten offers an absolutely stunning view and attracts thousands of visitors each year. With a permanent population of only just above 300 people, the picturesque feeling of a small town vibe shaped by the atlantic waves is an experience you will remember for a lifetime. Reine is located just southwest of Sakrisøya, and as we drive through the landscape the narrow roads and bridges between the villages is breathtaking to say the least.

Kaffepause - coffee break with the locals

If you want to become better acquainted with local customs, traditions, stories, myths - and the daily life north of the Arctic Circle - this is for you.

Some visitors say it can be difficult to get to know us Norwegians - we have a reputation for being a little shy and introverted. We do not want to change this with Kaffepause: We are who we are and that is good enough. What we want to do is open the door ajar and give Norwegians and visitors an opportunity to meet each other and share the joy of a cup of coffee. Everyone who have tried the service describes it as a wonderful experience. Take a chance and sign up as a coffee guest! You won't regret it.

Historical Tour of Skrova with World Sea Explorers

Discover Skrova-Once the largest fishing village in Lofoten since around 1760.

Lofoten is rich in history with evidence of human settlements over 10,000 years ago. Some mountains in the islands date back to the mesozoic era (that's why some places look like Jurassic Park!). Although in the arctic, the warm Gulf Stream provides mild temperatures, and the Northeast Arctic cod has come to spawn in Lofoten for thousands of years. The perfect weather conditions and arrival of the cod allowed for stockfish (hang dried cod) to been exported from Lofoten for over 1,000 years.

Learn more about the history and culture of Lofoten on the cruise over to the island. Enjoy a 45 minute guided walking tour of Skrova followed by 1 hour and 15 minutes of free time to enjoy food at a local cafe or to wander around the island. Take in the beauty of your surroundings on the cruise back to Svolvaer.

The cruise starts & ends in Svolvær.

Thon Hotel Svolvær

Will open July 2nd 2021. Welcome to Thon Hotel Svolvær - a brand new and modern hotel at the seaside in Svolvær.

Thon Hotel Svolvær will have large and comfortable rooms with a view, restaurant, bar, gym, sauna, large, modern conference facilities and its own fish farm. Centrally located in Svolvær, everything is ready for a great stay be it for work or leisure.

Fodd and drinks at Thon Hotel Svolvær
Centally located on the quay in Svolvær, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the fjord surrounded by majestic mountains. Here you can also look out at the main port to the city and the cod fishing that takes place almost right outside the window. Nearby you will also find the city’s nightlife, the major cultural scene and galleries - so how about a nice meal before heading out to enjoy the evening?

Northern Norwegian hospitality and a great taste experience
At Bistro Bassit, we have put emphasis on an atmosphere with beautiful and colourful materials, while keeping our northern Norwegian soul and hospitality. Among other things, we have open kitchens in the restaurant to promote the interaction between our chefs and guests.

The name "Bassit" comes from the Sámi language and can be translated into barbecuing food over an open fire/charcoal. That’s exactly what we want to offer our guests, so here you’ll find both a Spanish Josper grill and a Japanese Robata grill. With these grills, we will be able to offer you, as a guest, a unique range on the menu, including fully grilled cuts of meat and fish from Lofoten. The meal will also be served standing by the grill - for an even better dining experience.

Ingredients from the Nordic cuisine
The food served is inspired by the ingredients found in the Nordic cuisine - with a strong focus on both local and locally sourced produce. The main focus is on delivering world-class Norwegian products, and as much as possible using organic and locally sourced ingredients. We also look beyond Norway’s borders so we can always offer our guests the very best of both food and drink.

Our menu is seasonal so that the ingredients used have their ultimate flavour. This makes the tasting experience extraordinary and unique every time you visit our restaurant. The menu consists of several small and medium-sized dishes, so that you as a guest can put together exactly the menu you want. For an even better dining experience, we encourage our guests to share different dishes to create the perfect combination of colours, flavours and harmony.

The hotel bar
The bar at Thon Hotel Svolvær is located on the first floor in connection with the restaurant and with access to outdoor seating on the quayside. We offer a wide selection of cold and hot drinks here. Welcome in for a tasty tipple in the glass.

Greenhouse on the rooftop
We want our guests to have a dining experience with a focus on the best quality ingredients. It is especially exciting to be able to speak about our kitchen garden, where the plants grow under the magical midnight sun in the summer and in the autumn and winter season, under the Northern Lights. In addition, we have set ourselves a goal that within two years we must be able to offer a minimum of 50% of our vegetables, salads and herbs from our own garden. The garden should be as organic as possible, and we are considering a hydroponic solution to be the most efficient. We will use little or no energy, and fertiliser and compost will come from our own food waste. Heating of the garden will come either from natural solar energy or residual heat from the hotel. In addition, both of our hotels in Lofoten use their own seawater pumps for heating and showers. As much as 65% of all our energy consumption actually comes from the sea in Lofoten.

Our own bakery
Our goal with our own bakery is to offer you, our guest, real craftsmanship inspired by Italian, French, German, Danish and Norwegian baking traditions. Baking and the craft is something we really appreciate, which is why we want to bring this back and build new, proud traditions. Based on this and where possible, we only want to use organic and ancient grains in our flour blends. This is to avoid artificial additives and the like. Our philosophy is that only the best from all over Europe is good enough for our guests. On beautiful summer days, you can also stop by to enjoy home-made ice cream, or buy something tasty to take with you on a trip.

Breakfast and morning coffee will be served with great views of Lofoten and the open sea. Packed lunches are served by the chef and you can fill your thermos with something warm.

Turen mellom disse fiskeværene blir for mange unødvendig lang eller praktisk utfordrende, da det krever at man må gå rundtur eller at man har transport på begge sider.

Vi tar deg med fra leknes til Nesland i minibuss. Derfra vandrer vi den naturskjønne stien langs kysten av Flakstadøya.

Både Nusfjord og Nesland har historie som stammer flere hundre år tilbake i tid og stien har blitt brukt av fiskere enda lengre.

Denne turen er spesiell, hovedsakelig på grunn av det ville landskapet. Noen steder fører stien langs strandpromenaden med fantastisk utsikt over havet, fjellene rundt, enorme steinblokker og klipper. Det er pene blomster og vegetasjon å observere underveis! Sist, men ikke minst, disse to fiskeværene er en drøm for fotografer!

Nusfjord er en av de eldste og autentiske fiskeværene i Lofoten og er listet på UNESCOs verdensarvliste.

Som belønning etter endt tur, nyter vi en god lunsj i Nusfjord før skyssen henter oss og kjører tilbake til Leknes.

Vi har ordnet skyssen for deg og alt du trenger å tenke på er å kose deg på tur.

Praktisk Informasjon:
- Vanskelighetsgrad: Lett/ Moderat.
- Det er en kjetting et sted og en stige et annet, de fleste klarer denne turen. Anbefaler barn over 5 år.

After about 45 minutes of sailing we reach Litlmolla, that looks more like a scenery directly taken from a Jurasic Park film. Just soak in the nature, spot Eagles and other sea birds while we continue the navigation towards Skrova. On Skrova we can go on land to strech our legs and explore the island for abour 1.5 hours (it takes about 30 minutes one way to go to the sandy beaches in the photos). (psst... there is also a place for ice cream/coffee/small lunch here as an option if you need a bite).

Fløya and Djevelporten (590 m)

Fløya is a proud mountain, towering over Svolvær in Lofoten with the famous and characteristic Svolværgeita in front. On the hike up to this mountain you will pass Djevelporten («The Devil’s Gate”), which is a large rock stuck in a gorge. There are also Sherpa stairs, called Djeveltrappa («The Devil’s Stairs») - an attraction in itself.  

Sherpatrappa Fløya

Fløya is Svolvær’s local mountain, and it has become even more popular with the Sherpa stairs going almost all the way up the mountain side. If you walk up to Fløya, you get a fantastic view over the city. Svolvær has 4700 inhabitants, and this is the area with the biggest population in the archipelago. Svolvær has a small airport and it is the port of call for both Hurtigruten, ferries and the express boat. In this small, big city you find a large selection of restaurants, galleries, shops and accommodation. The tourist information is at the central square, and they have plenty of tips about everything that Lofoten has to offer. What about kayaking in the harbour of Svolvær or a boat trip to the Trollfjord? You find more information about Svolvær on Wikipedia.

 

Information about Djevelporten and Fløya

Starting point: The parking in the city centre or the parking by the start of the stairs in Blåtindveien.

Season: Spring, summer and autumn.

Distance: 1.5 km (one way).

Altitude: 590 metres above sea level.

Duration: 2 hours (one way).

Difficulty: Easy up the stairs, medium towards Djevelporten. Demanding if you go all the way up to the cairn at the top.

Parking

The hike starts right outside the centre of Svolvær. There is a parking area to the northwest of the church yard, just where the Blåtindveien makes a narrow curve. But this parking fills up quickly and it may be easier to park in the city centre.

Tour description

The path leads you from the parking and up the hill.

After a short walk you come to the Sherpa stairs – or «Djeveltrappa» – as it is called by the locals. The work on the stairs started in 2019 and will be continued.

These stairs make it easier to reach a higher altitude, as long as your thigh muscles allow it. Luckily, there are several nice benches along the way, where you can relax and enjoy the view.  

Chose the right path

When you come to the part where the terrain flattens out, the path splits in two directions. One direction goes to the right towards Svolværgeita, which is where you go to climb the famous mountain. If this is what you would like to do, you can find out about available mountains guides from the tourist information. 

If you are going to Fløya you follow the path that goes straight ahead. After a while the path turns eastwards and then it goes through a wide valley, which ends in a gorge between the Frosken and Fløya mountains. There is a footbridge across the marsh. The terrain upwards is quite steep and craggy.

Steep and exposed

When you reach the top of the gorge you see the Djevelporten directly in front of you. This is the large rock stuck between the two mountain sides. This is a very steep and exposed area and it is very risky to go out onto the Djevelporten. Please be very careful if you decide to do this.

The path towards Fløya continues upwards in an arc shape along the mountain side. The path is good, but it goes through exposed terrain on the very edge of a cliff. When you arrive at the top you will have a magnificent view of the Vestfjord and Svolvær under your feet! On top of this mountain you will have plenty of space to enjoy a break. It is not possible to go down from the mountain in front of Svolværgeita – with a view towards the city. Follow the same path down or a path marked Lofoten High5 in blue and white.

If you want to reach the very highest point, you need your hands and feet to climb up a steep and challenging 2–3 metre long passage. After that, you can walk the last few metres to the top, which is marked with a cairn.

Please be aware that the steep passage can be even more demanding when you are going back down, especially in wet weather!

Frequently asked questions:

Is this hike suitable for families?

Yes, the Sherpa stairs are fine for older children. There are several steep parts and some quite demanding parts. After the stairs there are some areas that require climbing.

Kvalvika and Ryten (543 m)

Kvalvika and Ryten in Lofotenodden national park are some of the most popular hiking areas in Lofoten. And there is a good reason for that. The view from the top of Ryten far down to the long golden beach is second to none.

Information about Kvalvika/Ryten

Starting point: At Fredvang school.

Season: Spring, summer and autumn. In the winter on skis or with snow shoes.

Distance: 3.5 km directly to the top, 3 km directly to the beach.  

Altitude: 543 metres above sea level.

Difficulty: Easy.

Duration: 1.5 hours (one way) to the beach. 2 hours (one way) to Ryten.


The hike to Kvalvika and Ryten attracts many people. This is where you experience the typical nature in Lofoten with steep mountains cliffs, emerald green sea and an impressive sandy beach, where it is tempting to go for a swim in the waves.

This hike is relatively easy and suitable for families who enjoy hiking in the mountains. There are several alternative routes, so you can decide if you prefer the long or the short version.

Kvalvika is on the island Moskenesøy, but it belongs to the municipality of Flakstad. This area is known for its beautiful sandy beaches. In addition to Kvalvika, we also recommend the beaches at Yttersand, Ramberg and Skagsanden, which are worth a visit if you enjoy walking barefoot on the white coral sand.

The nearest shopping centre in this area is in Ramberg, which is 7 km from Indresand, where you start the hike. Ramberg has a petrol station, shops, tourist information, restaurants, cafes and accommodation. There are also a variety of water sport activities for children and grown-ups.

You find more information about Kvalvika and the surrounding area on Wikipedia.

Parking at the school

Many people enjoy going to Kvalvika. We recommend that you park at Fredvang school and start your hike from there. There is a singn pointing to this parking once you have crossed the Fredvang bridges. 


You can park by the school and pay 50 kr (via Vipps if possible) for a private car. You also find charging points for electrical cars at the school parking, as well as clean drinking water and rubbish bins.

To consider the environment, we recommend that you take the shuttle bus. You find more information about this service  here.

Easy terrain

From the parking, follow the sign to the path towards Einangen. This is a good path that goes through an easy terrain with small crags and hills. The path goes to the north of the lake Einangsvannet and south of the hill 290. Remember not to disturb the sheep and keep your dog on a leash.

Continue further up until you see the lake Forsvatnet further down on your left hand side. This is where the path splits in two directions, so you need to decide if you want to continue up to the top of the mountain or go directly down to the beach.

If you decide to go to the top of Ryten first, you just follow the path up the hill. The path divides into different routes. If you follow the path that goes along the edge on the left, you get the most spectacular view. But the cliffs are very steep, so please be careful! 

Magnificent views

Kvalvika - Sissel Hansen, Destination Lofoten

The view down to Kvalvika beach is impressive. Steep cliffs rise up on each side of the bay and create a beautiful frame around the beach.

When you approach the top of Ryten, the terrain becomes flatter. From the cairn at the top you get a great view over the open sea towards the north. What about doing this hike to see the midnight sun?

After having hiked to the top, many people like to go down to the beach. Maybe for a refreshing swim? Follow the path back down to the lake Forsvatnet and then follow the path from there down the hill towards the beach.



Round trip alternatives

You can make a round trip if somebody can drop you off and pick you up somewhere else along the route. The shortest route is from Kvalvika, over Skoren and down to Torsfjorden. The return trip can be cut shorter by going down to Torsfjorden on the eastern side of the lake Markvannet.

Frequently asked questions:

Is this hike suitable for families?

Yes, the hikes down to Kvalvika and up to Ryten are both suitable for families. The path is good and not very demanding, even for young children. You may need to estimate double time if you bring small children. And you need to decide if you prefer alternative hikes that could be more enjoyable for the children.

Can you use a drone in the Kvalvika and Ryten area?

No, Kvalvika and Ryten are in the Lofotodden national park. In order to protect animal life and outdoor life, un-necessary noise must be avoided and the use of drones are not permitted in the Lofotodden national park.

Can you bring a dog to Kvalvika and Ryten?

Yes, but you need to keep your dog on a leash from the 1st of April to the 15th of November. Flakstad municipality has extended restrictions for dogs in order to protect grazing animals in the area. The path is suitable for dogs, but you may need to carry your dog over certain parts on the way down to Kvalvika.

Galleri Eggum

Galleri Eggum

In Gallery Eggum , you are coming close to the nature of Lofoten. You will find paintings and graphic art made by Rolf Aarøe Arnesen. He is keen to convey the dramatic changes and the changing light- and color ratio in the nature of Lofoten. He is not only showing nature, but also another part of his art, which is more impressionistic, spontaneous, simplified and with an enhanced coloration.

Gallery Eggum is located 4.6 km from the exit towards Eggum, from the E10 at Bøstad. It is a small gallery in idyllic surroundings and is located on the outside of Lofoten's harsh coast. The gallery is actually a small farm from 1878 which is partially converted into a gallery.
The small farm also consists of an original Nordlandshus from the specified year, which is no longer often seen.
The gallery has free admission.
In the barn building you can see the gallery. Here Rolf Aarøe Arnesen shows about 60 different paintings and prints. Most of the motives are taken from Lofoten's changing natural impressions.
In addition to paintings, different print formats are presented, in different price ranges.
In the same building you can see the antique department, which sells art glass, old porcelain and old glass.
Serving:
Outside the corona period, hot, 6-hearted waffles with sour cream and jam, cinnamon rolls and coffee / tea are sold! This you can enjoy outside in several idyllic seating areas or inside the newly built gazebo. Or maybe you prefer the coffee in "Gamelbua" which is original inside from 1878! The choice is yours. All with a view of the beautiful Lofoten nature, there on the outermost site of Lofoten.

About 4 kilometers further from the gallery you come to the small town Eggum, which from ancient times was mostly inhabited by fishermen and sheep farmers. It is a charming dense settlement with small houses. Out here the road stops in a recreation area. This is a favorite exit to a lot of motorhome tourists. Here you have a full view of the midnight sun. A 15-minute walk further you can see the much talked about work of art "the head", a sculpture by Markus Raetz 'in connection with Kulturlanskap Nordland.
