Norway's north coast (self-drive)


from £1,520 pp

(ex international flights)


8 days

The road from Tromsø via Sommarøy and Senja to Å in Lofoten can easily be rated as one of the most picturesque summer drives in all of Norway. The stretch is connecting numerous larger and smaller islands of the outer North Norwegian coast, and does not pass over any of mainland Norway. You could call it island-hopping by car. The drive includes two ferry crossings and several bridges and underwater tunnels. The drive is slow, not only due to the narrow roads and the low speed limit, but mainly because of the many photo stops you are likely to make. Every bend in the road portrays another majestic fjord, fishing village, a white sandy beach or a spectacular mountain peak. Throughout you can stay in your own self-contained accommodation, making this a perfect tour for getting away and enjoying stunning scenery and space.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
