9 Best Hikes in the Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten islands are lined with mountains that offer incredible views of the surrounding coastline and ocean. These mountains make for excellent day hikes and the nearby beaches are perfect for relaxing afterwards. If you want to spend a night in the wild Lofoten mountains, be sure to check out Munken which has a DNT cabin near the peak.

Most of the trails are not too challenging, but it’s important to monitor the weather and be prepared for all conditions.

Note that the trail to Reinebringen is closed while important conservation work is completed in the area. Increased traffic in recent years has caused problems with erosion and stone steps are being built by sherpas to help the landscape cope.

In the meantime, there is no shortage of peaks to tackle for stunning panoramas and that top-of-the-world feeling.
