TROMSØ - LOFOTEN / LOFOTEN - TROMSØ

Travel between the Capital of the Arctic, Tromsø and Lofoten (Kabelvåg)

Get ready to discover the Arctic in a safe, reliable, and relaxed way! Summer in the Arctic is breathtaking: from snowy mountain peaks to green flourishing hillsides, warm white sandy beaches and chilly windy mountain tops, from stunning fjords views to accessible mountain hikes, and from active Arctic towns to rustic and picturesque fishing villages. The area above the Arctic Circle has it all!

TROMSØ – LOFOTEN
LOFOTEN – TROMSØ

On the Tromsø – Lofoten (Kabelvåg) – Tromsø route, you can travel in a large area, spreading out between Tromsø and Lofoten, by bus and ferry. The buses are operated by the Arctic Route (part of Best Arctic) and the ferries are public (the ferry ticket is included on your ticket).

Is this the route for you? This route was designed for travelers who wish 100% freedom to explore and plan as it goes, without limitations, restrictions, or schedules. With the travel passes, you can hop on/off on this route (as well as on the route Narvik – Lofoten – Narvik, using the same travel pass) as many times as you wish.

Coming soon:

We are currently developing travel passes that will enable you to use them and travel between both our summer routes.

A route with unique features!

Daily service

Our daily-operated bus routes bring you between North and South: from Tromsø, via Sommarøy, Senja, Andøya, Vesterålen, all the way to the Gateway of the Lofoten: Svolvær and Kabelvåg, in both directions, every day. The route also connects many of the entry and exit points in the Arctic Route summer area, such as Tromsø airport and the Hurtigruten stops in Svolvær and Tromsø.

Fixed price

Travel the whole route or just for a shorter distance. Our price system is set up with a price per distance which fits all different needs. The number of kilometers and the price go hand in hand.

(COMING SOON) Travel Passes

Travel with a 4, 7 or 10 day pass, without limit of how many times you can hop on/ off during these periods. The ticket is bought as a value voucher and the traveler reconfirms the seat for each leg up front. These passes can also be used at the same time, on both routes Tromsø – Lofoten (Kabelvåg) – Tromsø and Narvik – Lofoten (Å) – Narvik, allowing you to try both of these routes during the duration of your travel pass.

Travel-oriented/focus

We picked our stops based on locations that travelers want to visit, spend the night, and want to eternalize with photos and life-lasting memories.

Made by locals, for everyone

The route, with hop-off/hop-on stops, shorter photo stops, and longer visiting stops carefully handpicked by local travel passionists. 

(COMING SOON) Add experiences and accommodations

Experiences and overnight stays will soon be possible to be added to this trip via our booking platform at some of the locations along the route.

* Hop-on/hop-off stops:

Guests will hop off the bus and stay at this location. Our hop-off stops always have activities, accommodation, and eating facilities. The next day, they can hop on the bus again to continue their journey in the same or opposite direction.

* Photo Stop:

We don’t want a good memory-creating place to be passed by. Our photo stops take between 15 to 25 minutes, so guests have time to take photos, stretch their legs, and breathe the Arctic! After this, hop on the same bus to continue your journey.

* Activity Stops:

Our Activity Stops take around 1 hour, so guests can visit a place, without having to book an overnight. These activity stops are ideal for food breaks, buying souvenirs, or visiting a village, a beach, or a fjord. And after that, the guests continue their journey on the same bus.
