One of Norway’s crown jewels is the mountainous archipelago of Lofoten. The Lofoten Islands are located along the western coast of Norway just north of Bodø. In this package, fly from Oslo up to Lofoten and enjoy 4 days of sightseeing while based in the picture-perfect fishing village of Svolvær. Your accommodation in Svolvær is a converted fishing cabin called a rorbu that offers an authentic Norwegian feel, but also has the comforts of private facilities and a kitchen. You will have the opportunity to tour with a guide on a mountain hike and explore the famous Trollfjord on a RIB Safari, but with your car rental you can also explore the wonders of Lofoten independently. At the end of this trip you will leave Norway having experienced some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.
