If the thought of grasping the steering wheel during a 7 day self-drive journey across stunningly beautiful & isolated islands of Norway makes your heart beat hasten, then you better listen up! Upon arrival in Andøya, deep inside the Arctic Circle, it won't be long until you realize you've unplugged from the modern world. Begin with a nature hike around Vesterålen and marvel at the midnight sun phenomenon as you explore the mesmerizing natural world around you. More than just a road trip, this remote paradise will offer plenty of opportunities to observe abundant wildlife, embark on a scenic rail journey, relax at Caribbean style beaches and kayak in the epitome of stillness until eventually arriving in Mefjord - the end of the world.
