Motorhome holiday in Lofoten

Want to experience the world’s most beautiful island group on your terms? Then consider a holiday in a motorhome or campervan.

In this article, we want to present Lofoten as a great place to explore with a motorhome/campervan. There are considerations you should be aware of when you’re on the road, but don’t let that stop you. Lofoten welcomes you with open arms, and here you will find a unique diversity of hidden treasures and experiences.

Let’s start with some information that relates to the local population first. Lofoten is big, but the roads are small. The roads are also used daily by everyone who lives here, all year round. But don’t just hear it from us, let the children in Lofoten explain what it means to be a “responsible motorhome guest.”

Before you start planning your motorhome holiday in Lofoten, it may be a good idea to explore the best starting point for the trip. If you have your motorhome, that goes without saying. But if you have to rent, there are several providers.

Near Harstad/Narvik Airport (EVE), which has several direct departures both nationally and internationally, there is a campervan rental company: Wecamp. You can hire a campervan and start your trip directly from Harstad/Narvik Airport or take a bus to Bjerkvik where they are based. Read more about this here.
