What does it take to be a fisherman in Lofoten Islands? There are only two ways I think. First: you have to be born here and continue a family tradition. Second: you have to move in to the islands, get accepted by local society and find a skipper willing to trust you. Many want to try, few are chosen. My friend Leon is the chosen one and I was the lucky one to join them on their very last day of the season. Team work seems to be the highest value on board, but what impressed me most was the unique bond between the skipper and the crew. I'm sharing some of those moments with you over here - enjoy.

Kvalvika is one of the the Lofoten Islands’ most popular hikes and beach spots. When in summers visited by multiple hikers, in winter gets more quiet and cosy. We love it than! Winter hikes are usually much more challenging due to unpredictable weather conditions and depends on snow, wind and daylight hours. Remember to prepare suitable clothing and equipment, specially during short daylight months. Sometimes it might get very windy on the beach and there is very low mobile network there if any at all. Safety first. We are sharing with you a video from our hike in January. We were lucky to have great and quiet weather conditions, but I promise you we had other winter trips to Kvalvika where we had to struggle at least like guys trying to reach K2 ;)

Wreck diving in Lofoten? Oh yes.. and MS Hadsel is the must. This Norwegian ferry was one of the Hurtigruten ships. They were essential for communication in Lofoten before the first road was build. The ship went down in 1958 during the winter storm and within 15minutes reached the bottom just outside Hamnøy island.
Thanks to our friends from Lofoten Diving (www.lofoten-diving.com) we could travel in time to visit this «out of space» ship.

After a few weeks of being extremely busy we finally found time for another little adventure. We decided to hike one of the tops on the outer coast of Vestvågøy island. Even though we are hiking in Lofoten quite a lot for many years, there are still plenty of spots that are new for us. This was one of those spots. The goal was to find an open viewpoint into direction of upcoming midnight sun to hunt the light. We have only about 2 weeks left until midnight sun will start for real but winter breath is still on our necks during the night hours. We have been sitting on the edge of the mountain until 3am admiring the magical transformation of winter into summer. We share this short video with you to give you an insight into our feel good emotions from this short but intense trip. We feel fully charged only after those few hours up there. Can´t wait for another day like this. Cheers from crazy guys in Lofoten Planet:) Erwin, Leon & Daniel

Skiing the “Milkyway” – that’s how I would call our trip yesterday. Easter is The Time for ski trips in Norway and due to Norwegian public holidays everyone is out there. Just look at the ski tracks. In the morning the weather was very promising and we thought we have been lucky with weather conditions this day. We have chosen Justadtinden as a goal of our trip. It is located on Vestvågøy island, a few kilometers east from Leknes towards Stamsund. Hike starts up from the parking place at Hagskaret both in summer and winter. We have made it up to 500m elevation when the weather suddenly turned to be quite bad. Tight snow and low visibility. With no promising signs on the sky we started to ski back down when everything was completely white around. GPS was the good friend at this point and It was really fun anyway :)

The Småtindan Peaks are one of the most popular off-piste #skiing   area in #Lofoten  where you can enjoy various terrain. The trail starts from E10 near Kabelvåg, but there are some other entrance options as well. After the last night snow fall we have been lucky to enjoy almost untouched powder #snow  conditions. This is a taste of our experience. More info and video from this fantastic trail is coming.
