The hike from Nusfjord to Nesland follows a scenic trail along the southeast coast of Flakstadøya, the island in heart of Lofoten. It takes you up, down, and over a variety of terrain on the historical “fiskesti”, fish trail. Nesland and Nusfjord are both historically known fishing villages dating back centuries and this trail between the two villages has been used by fishermen even longer. So enjoy this walk along the coast and imagine what it may have been like to traverse this trail during the winter fishing season back in the 1800’s like these hearty souls did.
Nusfjord Arctic Resort, the historic fishing cabins, are available to book for the night or for a longer stay.
Camping is available in the foothills around Nusfjord but be aware of the property lines as well as the Right to Roam regulations before you set up camp.
Tips and hints
There is a cafe, restaurant, and country store in Nusfjord as well as public restrooms.
