Moskenes Island Circumnavigation – what You need to know about:

In 2019, the Lofotodden National Park was created, covering the entire west coast of the island, which is feared of its steep cliffs and remote beaches,difficult to reach by the seaside. This tour is not recommended for beginner kayakers. Weather conditions can change easily and very fast, very unpleasant and even dangerous. Winds from the mountains, swells reflected from the cliffs, generate real rodeo conditions. The beaches, the only landing points are surfing spots, You can meet 1-2m high waves. Even the more experienced kayakers can be surprised if they have never been in such conditions. It is not without reason that it is called the Wild West by kayakers.

Anyone who comes here can instantly experience the harsh conditions of the North. In one minute there is 20 degrees with sunshine, another minute rainy, windy, with 5 degrees. You can leave your summer clothes at home, for sure!

It’s a home location for me, I’ve lived , kayaked, worked as a kayak guide here for years, and I’m almost a local. I speak Norwegian …

Day 1.:

Last chance to shop before departure. We start the tour.
Paddling from Ramberg Beach to Kvalvika Beach. About 18-20km. There are 2 stops on the way, but nothing during the last 9km, until Kvalvika. The route passes steep cliffs, from here it is spectacular and remote, full of dangers. Almost zero signal strength, stops only every 10km on surfing beaches.
The steep rock walls of the western part

There are some caves on this part, where we can paddle in with kayaks in quieter conditions. Not everyone knows these places, luckily I do! 🙂
Overnight: free camping at Kvalvika beach, in a tent or under the open sky! Don’t forget, the sun won’t go down!
Kvalika
Kvalvika
Day 2.:

We continue to paddle Kvalvika – Horseidvika: about 10km
Then, after a short break, Horseidvika-Bunesvika: approx. 8km
Overnight on a beach in a tent.

It will be a strong paddling day, at the southern horn of Lofoten we can meet The Mosken, a very strong tidal current.

It is planned to spend the night in the camp in Moskenes, in tents.
Day 4.:

Possibility to shop in Reine if our food reserve became short..
Reinefjord , Moskenes-island

Day 5.:

Sund-Ramberg approx.11 km. We’ll pass through a small channel called Sundstrømen, where the tidal flow can reach 12 km / h. With good timing, it could be beneficial! Otherwise You can paddle against the flood! Believe me, I’ve been there!

At Ramberg beach should end our journey. Overnight at the campsite. Farewell evening on a beach.

Day 6: Spare Day

Man proposes, Lofoten disposes! The weather is very variable! Depending on the weather forecast, the daily distance may need to be increased, or we need to reduce it. Moreover, in some cases, we need to consider to changing the route. In this case, we make daily tours in more protected, but still spectacular locations, maybe with more trekking. The experience will definitely be similar!
It is worth calculating at least one, but rather two extra days. If the tour goes according to our plan , then this day(s) can be taken for trekking: to Vollandstinden, Reinebringen, or to other peaks… surfing on nearby surfing beaches… or for sightseeing in the villages of Reine, Hamnøya,or Å.
Days 7-8.:

Traveling home individually: Unfortunately, it is not always possible to get home in one day!
