troll enHiking-Lofoten was founded in 2012 and was born out of the fascination a handful of hikers had for the Lofoten Islands. The keen interest caused by the site has exceeded our expectations by far and encouraged us in our work as volunteers and internet novices.
The site was originally based around ten or so hikes but now offers almost neinety hikes and that number will be increased by a further twenty by the end of summer 2018!
Many of you have thanked us by email or in the forum, which fills us with joy, but we believe that hiking-lofoten could be even better with your contribution. Don’t worry, we’re not asking for money as the site will always be free. What we are hoping for, on the other hand, is concrete participation to improve the content and more generally, help the site develop.

If you are interested in taking part, here are a few simple ideas about how you might help.

If you don’t find the answers to your questions or if you would like us to tackle specific themes concerning the Lofoten Islands

Over 20,000 internet users currently visit the Rando-lofoten site each month. Imagine how interest in the site could increase tenfold if a mere 1% of those visitors got involved. Rando-lofoten needs you, this is your site, make the most of it!

Boat Shuttle


forsfjord vindstad

If you want to go from Forsfjord power station to Vindstad (or vice versa), and you don’t want to rely on the boat shuttle MS Fjordkyss, it is now possible to do it by foot.

We provide GPX track, map and the description (in french only) for the section connecting Vindstad to Forsfjord. This new possibility is particularly interesting for hikers engaged in the great crossing of the Lofoten Islands trek.
