Lofoteggen – an amazing ridge traverse in the heart of Lofoten

Our favorite ridge traverse in Lofoten!

Lofoteggen stretches from Kvittind to Vaterfjordtind and includes four different summits. This serrated knife edge gives you a lot of scrambling with the most amazing backdrop you have ever seen. In the heart of Lofoten, surrounded by some of the highest peaks on the island and with the Vestfjord below you this is an experience for a life time. Lofoteggen offers many variations, the whole travers is a long day which requires a good fitness level, but we can shorten the day to your fitness level and ambitions. With many exposed passages and summits this tour require use of rope. The climbing is never difficult so most people with experience from mountain trekking will manage the scrambling with ease.

Northern Alpine Guides use IFMGA certified mountain guides or IFMGA aspirants to make sure you get the best experience possible.

This tour requires a normal fitness level, mountain clothing and solid boots/shoes. We will bring all the climbing equipment.

Practical information:


We meet at our office in Tore Hjorts gate 17 in the morning to make sure we have all the equipment and are prepared. The first part of the tour is a hike up to the ridge (aprox 1 hour). At the ridge we will rope up and start scrambling our way towards Vaterfjordtind.
