I first visited the Lofoten Islands in August 2012. They immediately won me over with their beauty. My first two-week vacation in the Lofoten Islands is an unforgettable experience, and the memory of it will remain with me forever. Since then I have returned to these beautiful islands many times – in winter, autumn, summer … And every time I found something new for me. I believe that the Lofoten Islands are an endless source of inspiration for any lover of northern nature, travel and photography.
If you love nature, these islands are an amazing place to visit. Magnificent scenery, mountains, sky and sea … You can make a mountain tour, go skiing, hiking, mountain bike riding. It is also very good for surfing and one of the most northern in the world.
But first of all, the Lofoten Islands are a great place for landscape photography!
Because of the warm Gulf Stream, the climate on the Lofoten Islands is much milder than in other parts of the world at this latitude. From May to July the sun never sets and you can admire the Aurora from early September to mid-April.
Since ancient times, the local population has been fully self-sufficient in fishing. Fishing still occupies an essential place in people’s lives. Lofoten is famous for its picturesque fishing lodges. Stay overnight in the traditional fishing lodge “Rorbu” and try the “toufisk”, a dried cod caught during the spawning season. Cod “törrfisk” is the basis of many dishes served in local restaurants.
Varied weather and stunning light have long attracted artists here. Not surprisingly, there are many art galleries and photo exhibitions on the Lofoten Islands. The Lofoten Islands hosts numerous photo tours every year.
I am proud to present my guide, which I wrote specifically for photographers who planning a trip to the Lofoten Islands.
