Mountainhike Haugen farm - Svolvaer
This is the hike for enjoying the beautiful and various landscape of Lofoten.
To see the differents between a hiking path and a sheep track is not always easy. We at Lofoten Aktiv try to use the established net of hiking paths of Lofoten as much as possible. Lofoten Aktivs daytrips are a part of our comprehensive multisport program, based on our eco-friendly attitude and choices. All our trips are set up for you to select as a single day trip; your favourite hike, or several hikes during the week.
The island traverse to Svolvær
This tour begins with a transfer to the northern side of Austvågøy. We begin hiking south, up a ridge before we go into the valley that leads us up to the plateau. It is steady climb up and the views both north toward the Atlantic and south towards Vestfjord and mainland Norway is impeccable. We take a break at one of the country's deepest lakes in relation to the water surface, it is like a needle into the landscape. The decent on the south side is a little steeper and it is now that the good sturdy hiking boots of yours are coming into their right. Lakes, mountain peaks and mountain ridges is what surrounds us on this trip.
