Great! The guide is very knowledgeable and warm hearted, we love the background history stories and also the local people's life style she shared, what's more, communication with her is super comfortable. We had the tour with another couple, since it's not touristy season, everything is relaxing and efficient. It's worth more than this price, don't hesitate to book it if you want to explore Lofoten!

Perfect trip! The tour guide was very nice in that he explained and accompanied us patiently and enthusiastically. He told us a lot about the history and folk customs of Lofoten. The scenery along all the way was very spectacular! Worth experiencing!

It has been fantastic to be guided by Elisa. She knew a lot about everything, and was skilled and helpful. We recommend this trip to everyone. 😍

There’s some stunning scenery in the southern islands; and the weather was good (a mix of sunshine with some clouds which makes great photos).

Excellent excursion. Andrea is a very friendly, very knowledgeable guide. Very interesting visits. I highly recommend
