Description - What to expect

From the Southern tip of Lofoten (Lofotodden National park), you are sailing through the Moskenes current towards your destination, the island of Værøy. Crossing the current (one of the strongest in the world) and sailing along the shores of several tiny islands on the route means passing through optimal habitats for a unique selection of marine wildlife and seabirds. It might be the perfect chance to spot the white-tailed eagle, puffins, seals, killer whales, and even humpback whales who are feeding in this area on herring and mackerel.



During this Lofoten islands day trip, the guide on board will be on the lookout and share their knowledge of this specific area’s wildlife, history, and geography. When arriving at Værøy, we will dock the boat for about 4 hours, and you have the freedom to choose how to spend your time there.



One of the options is to hike Håen (Håheia), the second-highest peak on the island. The start of this hike is about 3,5 km from the harbor, so it is recommended to rent a bike for an additional charge, provided by the supplier on arrival. This way, you will have more time for the actual hike up the mountain (highest point 438m) and enjoy the incredible views when you’ve reached the top.



You can explore the island on your own either by foot or by bike: walk around the small town of Sørland, head for Røssnesvåg and the lighthouse, cycle along the coast towards Nordland and visit the oldest church in Lofoten that is still in use or pass by the abandoned airport runway.



The boat will depart again from Værøy at 15:30. The search for wildlife continues on the way back, and the kiosk on board will be open, serving food and drinks. You can choose which place you want to disembark on the return: Å, Reine, or Hamnøy. You could also choose to stay overnight on Værøy and return the next day!
