Chasing the Aurora — Lofoten Islands

Chasing the Aurora — Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten archipelago is a photographer’s dream. Sharp, pointy mountains tower over fjords; cracked, frozen lakes, legendary beaches, traditional red cabins and magical light – this pearl of the arctic has it all.

Stunning Arctic landscape, amazing locations such as Reine, Olstind mountain, Haukland, Skagsanden and Utakleiv beaches, and many more

High probability of shooting the Aurora Borealis above immense mountains and wonderful beaches

Magical low light throughout the day, enabling us to shoot for over 6 hours (weather permitting), in addition to night photography

Lofoten – Amazing Arctic Circle Anomaly

Lofoten – Amazing Arctic Circle Anomaly
The archipelago of Lofoten in Norway is north of the Arctic Circle.  Yet throughout the year it has temperatures which belie its position.
This is because of the largest positive temperature anomaly in the world relative to latitude.
It makes Lofoten an unexpected delight – its early settlers must have thought they had stumbled across an arctic paradise.
