Lofoten to Oslo Driving Time

How long does it take to drive from the Lofoten islands to Oslo? A "straight" drive to Oslo. We will tour on the way up.

Thanks!

According to a Norwegian mapservice it'll take around 24 hours.

The shortest drive has 22 hours driving time plus 3,5 hours ferry from Bodo to the Lofoten Islands. The no-ferry option takes (according to the map service) 26 hours.

The no-ferry option will cover ca 1650km (~1000 miles)

I guess it could be an hour or two faster to drive through Sweden on road #45, but that road is extremely boring.

(I also think E6 (the main road between Oslo and Northern Norway) is boring, so I hope you don't will drive E6 both ways (my suggestion for the tour: #17 from Namsos to Bodø instead of E6)
