On this trip you will fly into Bodø, Norway, landing no later than 2:30pm on Day 1 of your trip. You will rendezvous with your guide and group at 3:30pm in Bodø at a restaurante called Bryggerkaia for an early dinner and orientation. The restaurant is either a 3-minute taxi ride or a 15-minute walk from the airport. Bodø is an extremely easy city to navigate.
If possible, we recommend arriving in Norway a day early, as it will help your recovery from jet-lag and provide a buffer for possible flight delays or cancellations. On this tour we are unable to wait for guests whose flights are delayed or cancelled but in those situations can help with information on getting to Lofoten to join up with the rest of the group.
Flights to and from Bodø Airport are the guest’s responsibility. Multiple airlines operate flights into Oslo, Norway from many U.S. and European international airports. From Oslo, you can easily fly into Bodø. SAS, Norwegian or Widero are the local airlines to fly nationally within Norway to get to and from Bodø.
Flights on the final day of the trip can depart any time after 6pm. On the last day we will arrange a taxi from the ferry dock to the airport at 4pm for the entire group. This is optional depending on your travel plans.
We require a minimum of 4 guests to confirm this trip. If a trip date is not confirmed yet, you can register and will be notified when the trip is officially confirmed. We recommend not making final travel arrangements until your trip meets the minimum number of guests and is confirmed.
In most cases, if a trip does not reach the minimum number of guests, you may choose to transfer to another trip date or another trip, be refunded your payments in full, or you may have the choice to pay a supplemental fee to run the trip with fewer guests. We make the final determination for these trips 45 days before the departure date.
Traveling in perfect company is a wonderful thing! With our private trip offerings you can book a trip exclusively for your group. Whether it’s with family, friends or colleagues, private trips are a fun and enriching way to explore the outdoors.
