My wife and I (15 years experience with Trekking, Alpine tours and cross-country ski trekking with tent in Norway) like to make our first hikes on the Lofoten. We have a full week including the trip from the Netherlands, maybe a day more, starting August 15. If needed we can rent a car.
Since I am overwhelmed by the great day hikes mentioned here, I would love to receive some advice/suggestions for trips of several days. If we could do two 2/3 days treks, or one long one of 4/5 days, and add a day or two for visiting some idyllic fisherman's villages our holidays would be perfect!
We do not have specific wishes like summits or swimming; we simply love to enjoy the great outdoors. We therefore can benefit from experienced people, to avoid that we connect a few day hikes that turn out to run through terrain where pitching a tent is difficult or grabbing water from a creek is not impossible.
Since we did not book our flight yet, we can still choose to fly to Narvik Evenes, Bodo/Leknes or take the train or boat from Bodo. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance of any words of advise!
