Our story

About Ivar & Radka

We used to run a rorbu in western Lofoten, right at the trailhead leading to Ryten and Kvalvika. 

It was there that we realized that our biggest joy is not only hiking in the local mountains but also sharing our love for Lofoten with tourists and hikers and showing them the best these amazing islands have to offer. 

After that, Radka started to work as a trip planner for a big travel agency. But it wasn´t her passion. We want to provide you with personalized advice where you and your needs, dreams and wishes are in focus. 

We know Lofoten. We have lived here, worked here, and traveled here. Let us help you create your dream holiday without fuss, frustration of fear.

We are not your average travel agents

Personalized Service

Suppose you want a list of recommendations that don’t consider your personal preferences. In that case, you can ask the internet and receive dozens of suggestions from strangers with different tastes, budgets, and standards than you. Unfortunately, you still have to spend hours combing through these internet responses and deciding which are valuable to your situation.  

Whether you’re an experienced traveler or just setting off on your first adventure, we work with you to ensure you feel confident and secure in your travel plans before you even pack your bags. 

Recommendations you can trust

While many travel agencies promise to deliver “custom itineraries,” this typically means putting together a package of tours scheduled for each day of your trip. Some agencies provide practical advice, but in most cases, what you do between activities and how you get around is left for you to figure out.

We do things differently. We know that an optimized itinerary and practical travel advice go hand in hand and are essential factors determining how much you will enjoy your vacation. 

We work for you

We are fee-based advisors, which means that we are not bound by the commission model that 95% of agencies operate under. This means that when we recommend activities or accommodation, you can be confident that we have made these suggestions for YOUR benefit, not ours. We mainly recommend activities and accommodations that we have personally tried. 

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

No.  We will together discover what will be the best choices and experiences for you but we do not do any bookings.

You can send those questions via email and we’ll get back to you. If you drastically change your travel plans or have a lot of questions, another consultation may be needed.

We will wait 15 minutes for you and will then sign off. You can reschedule your meeting but it will be 15 minutes shorter.  If you are having difficulty signing on or let us know in advance you are unable to make your scheduled time, we will work with you.
