This roundtrip will leave from both Reine and Hamnøy several times a day. From there, sail into Reinefjorden and Kjerkfjorden (5,7 km long), sail past the shallow Bunesfjorden and look into remote Forsfjorden before heading back to Reine. You can enjoy the cruise through the fjords on the entire roundtrip. Or for those of who want to combine the roundtrip with a more active way of exploring the fjord: there will be a short drop-off at Vindstad if you would like to get on land and hike to Bunes Beach.

The tour with our guide Andrea was really great. He is extremely well informed about the beautiful and interesting photo spots (including those that don't appear in every Instagram & Co story, and he knows a lot about the region and its history. However, the coordination on the part of the organizer could be optimized to the effect that where the customer is based in Lofoten is taken into account when booking.We were staying at Leknes and had to drive to the meeting point in Svolvaer, the local guide could have picked us up there as he lives in the area!I had this at the Asked which hotel we should be picked up from, but you as the organizer didn't respond to this. It's a shame for everyone!

This is an excellent tour to see the beautiful scenery of Reinefjord. The boat makes stops in Reine, Hamnoy, and Vindstad, plus a photo stop at one or two other places. You can hop off the boat in Vindstad and make a short hike (40min) to Bunes beach. Or you can just stay on the boat if you’re short on time. All in all, a great excursion. Friendly staff. The boats were nicely on time and reliable. Would definitely recommend.

This is a delightful short trip in Reinefjorden. Others have commented on the trip being basic, but the price reflects what is provided. The staff were friendly and helpful and because we chose the first sailing, the boat was very quiet with excellent views of the stunning scenery. We would have liked to experience the walk to Bunes Beach, but our time was too limited.

Very nice excursion with our guide Eric. Very good stories and explanations about Lofoten Islands, people living there, animals and nature. Eric is a very nice person, passionated, interesting to listen to and ready to answer to all questions. Very good spots for photographs. I recommend this amazing tour. Thanks! Marie-Claire B

Sublime, to do absolutely! The on-board staff will tell you where to stop in order to enjoy a beautiful hike with a magnificent beach at the end!
