As your trip leader, I will guide you through the stunning landscapes of the Lofoten Islands, offering a mix of hiking, beach visits, and cultural experiences for a comprehensive and memorable adventure. Given the time of year, we have an excellent chance of witnessing the northern lights.

Hi! My name is Aljaz. I grew up in Slovenia and have a great passion for travel. Over the years, I’ve done practically everything around it— from backpacking and living abroad to taking on various summer jobs, being a camp counselor and volunteering in various countries. Whenever it comes to organizing trips, I’m always the one who ends up planning, and I genuinely enjoy it. I’m also very active, so my adventures usually include a lot of hiking, swimming, and cycling.

We will be staying in apartments or cottages. Usually 2 persons per rooms. It is possible to have a private room for an additional fee, but please request it at the time of booking so I can plan ahead. When staying in apartments, we will cook our own meals and pack our lunches when hiking or discovering beaches. Depending on the plan we can opt for a lunch/dinner out or go for drinks/coffees when in town. Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!
