  • Hike a diverse and eclectic array of landscapes in Norway's north.

Description

Come to Norway and explore one of the world’s most pristine landscapes under the midnight sun!

We offer either northbound or southbound trips that last four or three days, respectively. Each day we will stop at a new and unique location, lace up our hiking boots and get out into the wilderness.

While we’re out on land, enjoy the dramatic landscapes as mountains meet the sea. Along the way we will get stunning views, see some ancient historical sites and be the only people for miles around.

As we go, we will explore Sommarøy, Senja, Vesterålen and Lofoten, each of which offers us something different and unforgettable to experience.

Since we will be here in the peak of summer, we also get to take advantage of the midnight sun, which will allow us to stay out hiking and exploring for as long as we like.

This trip is perfect for hikers of every level and guides can tailor each day’s itinerary to the needs of all of our guests.

So what are you waiting for? Book now and get ready for an unforgettable adventure as we sail and hike through the stunning beauty of northern Norway!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy our skiing and sailing adventure on your own yacht in the Lyngen Alps that we offer in March and April!

About the guide

When you live full time above the Arctic Circle, you fall in love with the changes in weather, daylight and temperatures. Every season has its charm, so I can’t point out one favourite.

I lived in Tromsø for several years and now live in Lakselv, Finnmark. I know the coastline between Lofoten and North Cape fairly well, both in summer and winter. Take into account that this coastline extends for more than 1000 km and includes numerous islands, so it takes some time to cover it all!

I started my outdoor career as a Telemark ski instructor in 1999 and as a climbing instructor in 2004. I now hold an IFMGA guiding certificate. In 2007 I started to work full time as an outdoor guide, instructor and mentor. Nordic skiing, survival in summer and winter, bush crafting, avalanche awareness, ski mountaineering, rock climbing and ice climbing are just some of the activities I guide.

If you are like me and want to explore the wild Norwegian coastline and discover some excellent local food and wine, check out my profile for some inspiration.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
