I will spent a week in Lofoten islands across Easter and I was wondering which are the best hikes to do.

Since it will be still April, I will assume that I will find snow basically everywhere and also the risk of avalanches can be medium-high.

Considering all this, do someone have suggestions for hikes?

I will have snowshoes with me, but I don't know the area and where it's best to go. Of course I will prefer hikes that are also panoramic or have a great view from the top.

Thanks a lot for your help

Just pick up the walks marked with the snowshoes picto The easiest island in winter condition is, without any doubt, Vestvågøya.

Have a safe hiking journey

Hi David,

thanks for the answer.

But do you think it's for sure needed the snowshoes? Because I have them with me but I don't know exactly the amount of snow present at the moment, do you think it's impossible to do hikes that doesn't have the snowshoes picto?

Anyway, if it's not a problem later this day I will write down the hikes that I prefer and could you please advise me on them?

If you are leaving in Lofoten we can meet and I can buy you a beer :P
