Travel to Lofoten

The Lofoten archipelago is located in the sea,  north of the Arctic Circle between the latitudes of 67° and 68°. The Hoop n Hike retreat will be held in the small village of Laukvik in the beautiful location of the Dreamcatcher retreat.  This is the perfect location to experience the midnight sun.

Traveling to Lofoten and the end of the world is and should be an adventure. There are several options to make this a unique experience. They will all give you scenic views you´ll never forget.

We will give you some examples of routes here: 

TRAIN and boat/bus alternatives: Adventourous souls may take the train (nsb.no) from somehwhere in Europe, choose the route through Oslo and Norway to Bodø. From Bodø you may take a 3.5 hour boatride to Svolvær, and we´ll arrange pick up from there.
You may also travel through Sweden by train (SJ) to Narvik and then take a bus for 3.5 hours.  These two obtions will be the cheapeast and you might get the price down to around 150 euros one way.

BY PLANE /bus: If you want to travel by plane I recommend flying into Harstad / Evenes (EVE), airport, and then take the bus for 2.5 hours.  Both SAS and Norwegian flyes here, and both have campains regularly.

Another option is to fly all the way to Svolvær (SVJ), this will add another 20 min plane ride to your overall travel.

We also reccommend you to stay some extra days and explore the rest of Lofoten either before or after the retreat.
