Lofoten Planet #7 2B a fisherman in Lofoten

What does it take to be a fisherman in Lofoten Islands? There are only two ways I think. First: you have to be born here and continue a family tradition. Second: you have to move in to the islands, get accepted by local society and find a skipper willing to trust you. Many want to try, few are chosen. My friend Leon is the chosen one and I was the lucky one to join them on their very last day of the season. Team work seems to be the highest value on board, but what impressed me most was the unique bond between the skipper and the crew. I’m sharing some of those moments with you over here – enjoy..

Lofoten Planet #6 Rafting to Refsvika cave

One of the highlights of the Lofoten Islands is deep sea rafting through famous and dangerous Maelstrom “Moskstraumen”. While crossing Maelstrom you will have a chance to admire wild life of the Lofotens’ sea and air. Finally you will get to the outer coast abounded village of Helle and  than Refsvika where you will have to hike to Refsvika cave with approximately 3000 years old cave paintings. The cave is a protected sight and available only with certificated operators. Great Adventure!

Lofoten Planet #5 Kvalvika beach in winter

Kvalvika is one of the the Lofoten Islands’ most popular hikes and beach spots. When in summers visited by multiple hikers, in winter gets more quiet and cosy. We love it than! Winter hikes are usually much more challenging due to unpredictable weather conditions and depends on snow, wind and daylight hours. Remember to prepare suitable clothing and equipment, specially during short daylight months. Sometimes it might get very windy on the beach and there is very low mobile network there if any at all. Safety first. We are sharing with you a video from our hike in January. We were lucky to have great and quiet weather conditions, but I promise you we had other winter trips to Kvalvika where we had to struggle at least like guys trying to reach K2 😉

Lofoten Planet #4 Diving the MS Hadsel

Wreck diving in Lofoten? Oh yes.. and MS Hadsel is a must. This Norwegian ferry was one of the Hurtigruten ships. They were essential for communication in Lofoten before the first road was build. The ship went down in 1958 during the winter storm and within 15minutes reached the bottom just outside Hamnøy island.
Thanks to our friends from Lofoten Diving (www.lofoten-diving.com) we could travel in time to visit this «out of space» ship.

Lofoten Planet #3 Hellsegga birthday trip

Can you imagine joining 9 girls on their «girl hike out» on your birthday? I did! 🙂 and this video came out of this trip. We hiked the top of the magnificent Hellsegga mountain at the end of Lofoten mountain range. We were having fun, chewing stockfish and admiring breathtaking 360 view on Lofoten and famous maelstrom »Moskstraumen». Unforgettable experience that we would like to share with the rest of the world. Enjoy! 🙂

Lofoten Planet #2 Hike on Mannen

If you feel like easy Sunday hike we strongly recommend getting to the view point of Mannen mountain. This peak is located between famous Haukland and Uttakleiv beach on Vestvågøy island. Anybody can do it even after Saturday night fever 😉 At the end of this short video you will find a 3D map of our hike. Enjoy!

Lofoten Planet #1 Hike over Bjørnsand

After a few weeks of being extremely busy we finally found time for another little adventure. We decided to hike one of the tops on the outer coast of Vestvågøy island. Even though we are hiking in Lofoten quite a lot for many years, there are still plenty of spots that are new for us. This was one of those spots. The goal was to find an open viewpoint into direction of upcoming midnight sun to hunt the light. We have only about 2 weeks left until midnight sun will start for real but winter breath is still on our necks during the night hours. We have been sitting on the edge of the mountain until 3am admiring the magical transformation of winter into summer. We share this short video with you to give you an insight into our feel good emotions from this short but intense trip. We feel fully charged only after those few hours up there. Can´t wait for another day like this. Cheers from crazy guys in Lofoten Planet:) Erwin, Leon & Daniel

The Småtindan Peaks

The Småtindan Peaks are one of Lofoten’s most popular off-piste skiing area where you can enjoy various terrain. The trail starts from E10 near Kabelvåg, but there are some other entrance options as well. After the last night snow fall we have been lucky to enjoy almost untouched powder snow conditions. This is a taste of our experience. More info and video from this fantastic trail is coming.

Lines of Lofoten

During the summer of 2012 a bunch of riders decided to build bike lines in Lofoten Islands. It took them 4 weeks all together to build the lines, ride them and shoot videos so we could now enjoy the result of their efforts. We are sharing their highlight clip as invitation to follow their 5 episode web-series. Enjoy the ride!

Offersøykammen hike – winter

Offersøykammen is a very short hike on Vestvågøy island, available almost all year round straight from E10 road near Leknes. Please consider weather conditions in winter time. Due to elevation there might be avalanche risk in the area. You can use it as a training spot for your cardio workout or take it easy as a Sunday walk after dinner. Anyway it will make your pulse go up. It features wide open view in all directions and is often quite windy as you will hear on the upcoming video from this hike.
