Hattvika Lodge is proud to announce a newly offered service. Roland Hummer from Austria aka ITCHY-FEET, who joined the Hattvika team in January 2018, offers trail running courses and personal coaching at the majestic Lofoten islands in addition to hiking adventures.

Trail running can build strength and improve form. As training miles accumulate it’s tempting to start logging miles off-road and there are many benefits to be gained merely from changing surfaces. Trail running will strengthen muscles in the foot, ankle and pelvis, otherwise not developed while running on urban terrain. This strengthening increases overall muscle recruitment, creating more power and resulting in higher running efficiency.

There is no other place like the Lofoten islands to explore the mountains quick and safe by your own engine. Lifelong memories will be stored at your own hard-drive after roaming the world’s most beautiful archipelago.

By interlocking training and vacation with professionals at Hattvika Lodge, you’ll find a perfect balance between relax and play. The close by mountains is only 5-10 minutes away. From the basecamp to the summit it’s hard work, coaching and enjoyable learning of the discipline; Trail Running
