Itinerary & Logistics - Lofoten Ski & Sail DreamTrip

Getting to Lofoten. Flights to Svolvaer.

 

The trip to Northern Norway requires multiple flights and stopovers compared to many of our other trips and programs abroad. Your approach flight time from your home destination to Oslo will largely dictate the amount of travel required. Beyond Oslo, both Guests and Guides will for the most part share the same travel routes to arrive in our rendezvous town of Svolvaer. Flights to Oslo are easily obtained on most major airlines operating in Europe. Once arriving in Oslo however a series of domestic flights will take you from Oslo to the north with a number of short stopovers depending no the itinerary. Generally flights are booked in two steps - your home to Oslo, and Oslo to Svolvaer. For the Oslo to Svolvaer flights we recommend booking with a reliable domestic airline called - you can search for flights on their website. You should plan to arrive in Svolvaer at the latest on April 14th, 2019, before noon local time.
