Active holiday in Lofoten – spring and summer tips

March 5, 2024


Are you tempted to go an active holiday in beautiful nature? Spring and summer are a great time for, among other things, trips in the mountains, surfing and kayaking. From the end of May to the middle of July you can enjoy the sun around the clock, perfect for active days!

Mountain tour

A mountain trip is almost a must when you visit Lofoten in the spring and summer. The mountains are easily accessible and there are several walks you can take. We offer guided tours where our experienced guide takes you on an unforgettable trip among the magnificent mountains in Nusfjord. With beautiful scenery and fantastic views, a mountain tour is the optimal way to experience the Lofoten Mountains. Remember hiking boots and a wind jacket.


Kayaking is a fantastic activity where you get the feeling of being in sync with nature. With the midnight sun, you can paddle almost all day. Experience mountains, birds and sea animals from the kayak as you glide through the water. You don’t need any experience and can borrow all the equipment you need. We have guided kayak trips where you get to experience small bays and hidden beaches.

Fishing trip

Lofoten is known all over the world for its long fishing traditions. Join us on board our traditional fishing boat, the Elltor, and experience a real fishing trip with our experienced local captain, who has been a fisherman himself. Maybe you’ll spot the majestic sea eagle hovering around the boat looking for food. Catching your own fish is an indescribable feeling and gives you a real Lofoten memory.


Surfing in Lofoten is an experience, whether you are a beginner or an experienced surfer. Experience the mastery of catching a wave at sea surrounded by mountains and beautiful nature. You can surf all year round and there are several beaches to surf on, but the biggest waves are from spring to autumn. This makes summer perfect for beginners as the waves are not as big and powerful, and the water is warmer.

SUP board

Stand Up Paddleboarding, or SUP, is a fantastic activity that allows you to cruise on the water and immerse yourself in nature. Whether you are an experienced paddler or a beginner, we have the perfect board for you. Our experienced instructors will provide thorough training and guidance before you set off on your adventure.
