DAY & NIGHT IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ARCHIPELAGO

Lofoten, Norway

1/12

avg £5,000 pp

7
days
DESCRIPTION:

We began exploring the Lofoten archipelago in Norway as our favourite destination for Northern Lights watching, particularly because Lofoten offers so many other opportunities in early spring and late autumn. After discovering its awesome beauty, Lofoten also became one of our top summer destinations when  (despite the fact the aurora is not visible) you can enjoy the endless hiking trails and beautiful landscapes for 24 hours a day, guided by the midnight sun. No one can predict the northern lights activity and it would therefore be a pity to travel somewhere just for that, at the mercy of the weather. With so much more to offer besides it's high aurora activity, Lofoten is almost too good to be true, we agree. 

PRICE INCLUDES:

The price is an average based on our experience, including luxury accommodation, daily activities and exquisite meals. It highly depends on how active you want your holiday to be. It includes a helicopter tour, private fishing and daily aurora hunting, walks guided by local experts, kayaking, whale watching, sea safaris and other extraordinary daily adventures; also, our promise to keep you very warm and thoroughly spoiled.

 

DID YOU KNOW:

One of the world's largest seasonal fisheries takes place in Lofoten. From mid-February until the end of April, Lofoten is full of life. The Arctic cod migrates from the vast, nutritious areas of the Barents Sea in its millions, en route to the spawning grounds near Lofoten. One thing is certain, you won't be bored with the view while you are waiting for the fish to bite!

CLIMATE & WHEN TO GO:
The Lofoten archipelago enjoys an exceptional climate north of the Arctic Circle. At this latitude, without the warm currents of the Gulf Stream the islands would be covered with ice and no vegetation could grow. In fact the warm marine currents from the North Sea give the archipelago a mild oceanic climate with average temperatures in January of 1°C/33°F in Røst to the south of the islands (in other words higher than those in mainland France at the same time of year) and cool summers with an average of 13°C/55°F in July.

Even though the temperature may occasionally rise to 30°C/86°F in July, it is common to have fine days with temperatures of 25°C/77°F during the three summer months. But, attractive as the climate may seem, remember you are in an arctic region and temperatures can drop suddenly, which is why you always need appropriate protective clothing.
