The Lofoten Islands are a wonderland of jagged mountains, beautiful fjords, and white sandy beaches. With summer at its peak, it’s time to start thinking about the best way to enjoy the last of the summer months. And why not do something completely out of the box and visit Norway? Here are the 3 “must do” hikes that will let you fully experience the Lofoten Islands.



The terrain is friendly and well-suited for those who like to hike but don’t want to do the most challenging hikes. Going through Kvalvika beach, Ryten appears as a massive cliff rising to a height of 543 meters directly from the sea.




Reinebringen is arguably the most popular hike in the Lofoten Islands. A short but steep trail leads up the mountainside to a ridge high above Reine village. Instagram has been flooded with pictures of the spectacular views over the village and the surrounding coast.




The summit of Haheia is the second-highest peak on the Vaeroy Island. It is also the only peak in the archipelago that has a road, which is private and leads to a NATO radar installation. Outside of this little bit of civilization, the wide-open landscapes you will go through are absolutely magnificent.
