The Lofoten Islands | KMT - Kayak More Tomorrow

 

The Iconic Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands boasts one of Norway’s best sea kayaking venues. These impressively scenic islands form an archipelago one hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. It is a place of mystical landscapes illuminated by nearly continuous daylight. Glacially-carved, shear granite spires rise out of a sea made rich by the meeting of the warm Gulf Stream and the Arctic Ocean. Our Iconic Lofoten Islands trip is a highly ranked bucket list trip in international sea kayaking destinations.

These impressively scenic islands form an archipelago one hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. It is a place of mystical landscapes illuminated by nearly continuous daylight. Glacially-carved, shear granite spires rise out of a sea made rich by the meeting of the warm Gulf Stream and the Arctic Ocean. The Islands are fringed with green pastureland and dotted with picturesque fishing villages each with its own unique character and dramatic mountain backdrop.

Kayak the length of this remarkable chain of islands through indigo-blue fjords cutting between jagged peaks, stopping at white sand beaches and hiking to viewpoints for incredible panoramic vistas. At the end of each paddling day you’ll stay in “rorbus”, traditional fishermen’s lodges with time to explore these charming villages and sample the local cuisine. Great kayaking, spectacular scenery and Norway’s seafaring culture make the Lofoten Islands one of the world’s great paddling venues.


 

Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands, a chain of spectacular islands, where jagged peaks embedded in the sea and the sounds of the Moskenes maelstrom, one of the world’s strongest ocean currents tell Viking sagas and legends of a seafaring people. Here our Iconic Lofoten Islands Sea Kayak Expedition, an 8-day magical journey that takes you on a close and personal discovery of this historical fishing culture. We paddle our sea kayaks, island hopping a 120 – 135 km averaging 5-6 hours on the water each day.  Here, the history and culture of a rugged seafaring people and the waterways that connected them come alive as we paddle into fishing villages and lodge in choice sea houses built on century old wharves.
