Northern Lights Holiday in the Lofoten Islands


Arctic Autumn and the Aurora Borealis in the Lofoten Islands

After months of Midnight Sun, the Arctic begins to prepare for winter once again. As the nights begin to darken, the glowing Aurora comes out to play in the night skies. The vast open landscapes and mountains surrounded by changing colours make the Autumn a unique time to visit the Arctic and the magical Lofoten Islands. Explore the wildlife and wilderness with experienced local guides and search for the Northern Lights in the evenings.  




DAY 1:

Arrival to the Lofoten Islands.

On your arrival in the stunning Lofoten islands you will transfer to your accommodation. You'll stay in a cosy converted fisherman's cabin, known as a Rorbu cabin which overlooks the magnificent coast. Retaining their authentic look on the outside, inside you will find a warm and cozy cabin with a well equipped kitchen, private bathroom and one to three bedrooms (Cabin dependent). The cabins are located just a short walking distance from the centre of the town and are a starting point to many activities and excursions.

In the evening, you will have a briefing session with your Northern Lights guide who will accompany you for the following two evenings for guided hunts by road. They will choose locations away from artificial light, giving you the best opportunity to see this dazzling natural phenomenon.

Staying at: Svinoya Rorbuer

DAY 2:

Breakfast and a wildlife adventure awaits you today.

Join a thrilling RIB boat tour in search of local wildlife – especially the white-tailed sea eagles, who search these waters for fish to catch. You will head out to the Trollfjord and witness some spectacular nature spots, small islands and white sand beaches. Your guides will provide you with warm flotation suits and life vests for the trip.

In the evening, you'll join a guided hunt for the Northern Lights by road. For two evenings, you will have the chance to join a guided excursion (included in the price) to give you the best chance possible of seeing the Aurora Borealis dance across the sky. Each guided tour lasts for approximately four hours and you'll receive tuition on how to capture the lights on camera. The day of the trip may change due to weather conditions.

DAY 3:

After breakfast, you'll enjoy a full day Sea kayak excursion of the surrounding coastline and inlets with your local guide. You'll discover the islands that make up the Lofoten archipelago including the characteristic fishing villages which have made these islands famous, and are appreciated all over the world. You'll also explore unspoilt nature, white sandy beaches and jagged mountains from the comfort of your kayak. There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos.

In the evening, head out with your guide for another chance to see the Northern Lights.

DAY 4:

Today is a free day to spend at your leisure. Spend the day relaxing around your cabin, surrounded by magnificent scenery, or step out and immerse yourself further into the Lofoten islands. There are many exciting activities that we are able to arrange for you, including visiting a husky farm, learn to surf, sea fishing and horse riding (daytime or under the Northern lights). These fascinating islands off the coast of Norway are a playground in nature.

Day 5

it is time to leave your coastal paradise as you transfer back to the airport for your onward journey. If you wish we can extend your stay in Lofoten or make recommendations of where else to stay in Norway, let our experts create your holiday around you.
