Let’s face it, the Lofoten Islands havn't got the proper terrain for light/easy walks and this for two reasons:
Hiking-lofoten tries to cover this lack of information.
You must be aware that this website is only for experienced hikers, that are used to hike by themselves in a difficult terrain. All information given on this site (Gps tracks, descriptions, maps) have been collected and are verified by professional guides. This information can be useful to help you prepare your hikes correctly, but it will never replace your “legs” or your “brain”, and more generally your own mountain experiences.
Remember that the notion of difficulty is a subjective one, and what may seem difficult to you may seem easy to someone else (and vise versa). If you are not sure of your physical capacity in this type of "wilderness", but you still want to try out one of the hikes described on the website, we advise you to choose one of the “easy” or “easy/medium” ones to begin with, so that you'll get an idea of the real degree of difficulty.
Otherwise, if you want to enjoy the Lofoten mountains but you don’t feel to hike there by yourself, you can always ask for a professional mountain guide or join one of the organized treks, proposed by local or foreign trekking agencies.
