Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Enjoy a fascinating, narrated motorcoach tour of the beautiful Lofoten Islands. Your half-day adventure will take in the sights of the charming village of Ballstad and the tropical-looking beach of Haukland Beach and Hagskaret View Point.

As you leave the pier at Leknes, be sure to have your camera ready to capture the island's majestic scenery, snow-peaked mountains, deep and narrow fjords and sandy beaches. Look for sea eagles, cormorants, puffins and other seabirds and quaint fishing villages with cozy fishermen's huts that dot the coastline.

The island of Vestvågøy offers some of the most magnificent scenery in Norway. At the southwest end of the island sits the delightful fishing village of Ballstad, which rests at the foot of Ballstadheia Mountain. Looking around, you'll see a number of small dwellings called a rorbu - a traditional fisherman's cabin; many of them have been preserved and converted into vacation homes with modern necessities.

Next stop on your tour is Haukland Beach. The long stretch of pearly white sand and sapphire water look so inviting that it may be hard to remember you're near the frozen Arctic and the water may be very cold.

Your last stop will be at Hagskaret View Point, from where you will be able to admire the magnificent mountains in the background.

The Lofoten Islands, fishing villages, green hills and jagged mountains greet you on your way back to your ship at the end of your tour.
