Day 2: Leknes > Reine This morning drive to Reine, whose red and white fishermen's huts and the granite peaks of the Reinefjorden give the village the reputation as "the most beautiful place in the world".

Day 4: Reine > Svolvaer A beautiful drive awaits today. You will have time to stop along the way to admire the views, visit fishing villages and go hiking. Tonight, you will be staying at the famous town of Svolvaer, busy with tourists in the summer and cosy and quiet in the winter.
Day 5: Svolvaer Today enjoy a Sea Eagle Safari to Trollfjorden, one of the most dramatic landscapes that Norway has to offer. Sea eagles have the largest wing span in the world, so to have one circling above your head is an experience to treasure.
