 East Lofoten, an island-hopping Eldorado

Our day begins by sliding through Valrenna, Lofoten’s only man-made canal, (a historic feat at allowed fishermen safe passage from East Lofoten to the markets of West Lofoten.) through the canal we make our way out of Pundslett Bay and across Holand Sound to the ‘thousand islands of Svellingen’. This island mecca reveals innumerable beaches, abundant wildlife (sea eagles, cormorants, porpoises, seals……) and crystal-clear waters. We make our way to Risvær, once a bustling fishing community, now only hosts a handful of summer dwellers.

We find the perfect island well suited for an el fresco picnic lunch. As we climb out of our kayaks and welcome the rocky sand under our feet as we stretch of our legs. After a relaxing lunch we launch from our island and make our way through this maze of islands to Risvær, once a bustling fishing community, now only hosts a handful of summer dwellers.

We try our luck a fishing as we make our way back to Valrenna canal, where our transport awaits.
