Join us for 5 days and discover the incredible islands of Lofoten – world famous for its wild and breathtaking nature. Together with the people, good food, the art and culture you´ll have a fantastic tour to remember. Between late May and mid July you can experience the midnight sun.
The Lofoten Islands are draped across the turbulent waters of the Norwegian Sea, far above the Arctic Circle. During the tour you´ll explore and experience this untrammelled landscape of majestic mountains, deep fjords, squawking seabirds, long, surf-swept beaches and small, interesting fishing villages. If you are seeking unforgettable nature experiences, Lofoten will definitely not let you down.
Fishing has been, and still is, the reason why people have lived here, and the region is known for its many small fishing villages. We´ll stay in a Rorbu – an old fishermen’s cabin – and recommend you try eating skrei, the Arctic cod, and stockfish, dried cod.
The rapidly changing weather and magnificent light conditions have inspired artists and drawn them to this area for several decades, which is evident in the many art galleries and photo exhibitions.
