Feel Your Own Strength - Paddling off Skrova
In the small fishing village of Skrova on the island of the same name, which is also known (almost seriously) as the "Hawaii of the Lofoten Islands" due to its many hours of sunshine, not only fishing boats are launched into the water, but also kayaks. The small boats are a popular way of exploring the crystal-clear waters between the islands and catching a special view of the rugged coastline. The kayak glides through the water along rocks close to the shore, white sandy beaches and bays, and lucky travellers can also spot sea eagles from here. If you spend a few hours on the boat, don't forget provisions and sunglasses.
Finger Exercises - Climbing in Henningsvær
Fingers and toes have to find the vertical routes: Rock climbers have already discovered the granite walls of the Lofoten Islands and can find more than 200 routes in their mobile apps. High above the turquoise waters, with endless islands and rugged mountain peaks in the background, the archipelago is a unique destination for amateur and an increasing number of professional climbers. The village of Henningsvær is considered a mecca. On one of the offshore islands, the people of Henningsvær have created a now legendary grass pitch: If you want to relax after a strenuous climb, go and play football.
The Wind as a Friend - Sailing in the Trollfjord
The fjords of the Lofoten Islands are deeply incised bodies of water carved by glaciers, a surreal mix of towering cliffs and calm waters. One of the most beautiful in Norway is the astonishingly narrow Trollfjord, located between the Lofoten Islands and the Vesteralen archipelago. It can be travelled wonderfully by sailing boat. The journey begins in the fishing village of Svolvær, from where the skipper navigates the boat through the gentle waters and towards the island of Stormolla.
