XXLofoten specialises in the planning, organisation and execution of meetings, incentives, congresses, conferences and events in the Lofoten Islands.
XXLofoten is a privately owned Destination Management Company (DMC). The highly qualified and experienced guides have extensive local knowledge. They can help you to find the quickest way to get to Lofoten or how to make the journey part of the adventure by a combination of boat and bus. They also offer an exciting range of nature based adventures and activities through all seasons.
For the most time-efficient option, fly from Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL) via Bodø (BOO) to Svolvær (SVJ) in two hours and 20 minutes. Several other major airports in Norway also have regular flights to Svolvær via Bodø.
If you want to make the journey part of the adventure, fly to Bodø and continue to Lofoten by boat. Hurtigruten, the Norwegian Coastal Voyage, leaves Bodø at 3:00 pm and arrives at Svolvær at 9:00 pm daily. You can also go by a chartered passenger express boat. This way, you get to see the beautiful coastline on the way.
Another alternative is to fly from Oslo to Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes, which is also known as Lofoten International Airport.
From Evenes you can go by bus and experience the magnificent landscape along the road. After around one hour, the journey continues by RIB boat. Your luggage is sent to your chosen destination by bus.
Norway's conference destinations offer modern conference and meeting facilities. They are all easily reached from major European cities.
