Join us for a week as we visit the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway. You will experience the striking landscapes located at one of the most scenic places on this planet. During this week, we will take you to the most popular places between Svolvær in the north as well as Værøy in the south. We will also show you some of the more hidden gems of this amazing region. Oh! And what if we told you that you could taste the world famous fish burger located in the picturesque Moskenes? 

 

ABOUT THE LOFOTEN ISLANDS

Lofoten is an archipelago famous for its dramatic scenery. A string of islands are connected by road, bridges and tunnels. In each of these islands you will find picturesque villages and hidden beaches. In total the region has a population of about 24500. 

Our basecamp will be at the heart of Lofoten, at the beautiful Hattvika Lodge in the small town of Ballstad. 

You’ll never forget your first approach to the Lofoten Islands. The islands spread their tall, craggy physique against the sky like some spiky sea dragon, and you wonder how human beings eke out a living in such seemingly inhospitable surroundings. The beauty of this place is simply staggering.

Objectives

During this week in Lofoten we will visit world-class locations like Reine, Værøy and Uttakleiv. We will prioritize sunrises and sunsets during this week. So it will be late evening and early mornings, but well worth it if the weather is with us. 
The weather in Lofoten is highly unpredictable, this will give us many unique chances to capture amazing light throughout the day. The weather in Lofoten also set a demand for proper outdoor clothing. It is not unormal to have 2, 3 or 4 kind of weather during a short period of time.
