Join us on a fantastic nature experience through one of the world’s strongest tidal currents. In a seaworthy fast going boat with all necessary safety, we take you on a safe adventure tour to the dramatic wall of Lofoten, abandoned fishing villages and the famous Maelstrom itself.
The boat driver will meet you at our office in Reine where floatation suits and rescue equipment are handed out and passenger list signed. Our boat drivers have all necessary certificates, are well acquainted with the waters and conditions in the area. They have great local knowledge and therefore they also act as excellent guides on the trip. The boats are equipped with life-saving equipment according to applicable regulations.
When everyone is on board and the safety instructions given, the tour starts towards the tip of Lofoten. We stay close to shore so you get to see all the details in the nature and abandoned fishing villages. At the foot of the dramatic mountains you will see remnants of houses and fences, the only proof that there once lived many people here. We stop by places where we have observed the majestic sea eagle, and we move into the famous Maelstrom, the world’s strongest tidal current in open sea. In the middle of the current we will also keep an eye out for various sea birds. After experiencing the maelstrom, we cross the current again and go to Yttersia of Lofoten before we return to Reine.
