We rate this Norway hiking tour a solitude 1. You can expect to be around other hikers much of the time.
On this trip you will need to fly (from Oslo-Bodø & Bodø-Svolvær) or take the ferry (from Bodø) into Svolvær, Norway, landing no later than 2:00pm on Day 1 of your trip. You will rendezvous with your guide and group at 3:00pm in Svolvær in front of the Tourist Information Office (Torget 18, 8300 Svolvær, Norway) in the city center near the Thon Hotel Lofoten on the harbour. Svolvær is an extremely easy city to navigate. A Taxi from the airport to the city center is an ~10 minute drive and easy to organize at the airport. If arriving by ferry, the terminal is a 3-4 minute walk to the city center or a short taxi ride.
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.
Flights to and from Svolvær 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 Svolvær through Bodø. SAS, Norwegian or Widero are the local airline companies to fly with domestically within Norway to get to and from Svolvær. From Bodø you can also take a Ferry to Svolvær through Reis Nordand.
Flights on the final day of the trip can depart any time after 3:00pm. On the last day we will travel as a group in a 2.5 hour shuttle from our final hotel to Svolvær arriving between 1-1:30pm. Individuals can be dropped off at the airport, ferry terminal or any local Svolvær hotel if extending your trip.
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.
