This trip is truly unforgettable. We went out on a rib boat tour of the Moskenstraumen (a system of tidal eddies and whirlpools that are one of the strongest in the world). The tour was an excellent mix of adventure (extremely high waves at some points) and nature (seals, exotic birds, etc). If there is 1 thing you must do while in Lofoten, this is it. There is some element of risk involved, as the waves are quite high. However, we had no problems at all. The guides were VERY knowledgeable and friendly, and your safety is their priority. I'd recommend you to bring good shoes (hiking boots or something VERY warm) with wool socks. The water is very cold (even in June) and there is NO WAY to avoid getting wet. The company provides you with a very thick wet suit, but still it's better to come a bit prepared. Dress warmly (long underwear might even be a good idea), and definitely use the bathroom before you go out on the boat, as it's a long ride and there are obviously no bathroom stops.
