Hi there. Me, my wife and 9-year old daughter are coming to Evenes airport Tuesdayafternoon , August 9. We take a car and go to Sund for three nights. Then head to Kabelvag for two more nights and fly back Sunday night, August 14
We want to hike for sure (easy-modarate), cycle/kayak, see wildlife, do family activities and see as much as possible of the best Lofoten basics. Can you recommend routes/places/activities and give me tips so that we can make the most of our time there?
Is Moskstraumen worth it? How much time it will take out of one day? Any chance to see whales?
Thanks in advance!
Regarding hiking tips and trips you will find plenty on that site where you can choose your hikes by level of difficulty.
Regarding other infos like boat trips on the Moskenesstraumen, kayak and cycle around you should maybe look at the local tourist office site or directly on the companies sites (google them)
At Hiking-lofoten we unfortunately don't have all the answers
David, you got more than enough answers for everything. I have been checking the day walks thoroughly in this site; I just wanted a narrow-down of the basics. I've already made my picks (Varden, Hoven, Nonstinden, Karstaven, Tjelbergtinder, Svarttinden, Nesheia), and I hope my daugher will love 2-3 of them (we'll not be able to dfo more). Could you rank them for me maybe, based on scenery, top view and number of lakes?
For Moskenesstraumen I don't need info. I just want to know if it's worth it
