One week in the islands of Scandinavia
The Sami people from the North of Scandinavia believe that the most beautiful Northern Lights can be witnessed in September. We have decided to go and check for ourselves, with this one-week tour in the Lofoten and Vesteralen islands, to live the magical atmosphere of these faraway lands.
During this trip, you will sail across the waters of Andenes looking for whales and sea eagles, sleeping in fishermen villages and exploring, one day after the other, these wild territories, portrayed during the tour by professional photographer Gabriele Menis.

Day 2, Wednesday, September 19Photo workshop in the Vesteralen Islands

Breakfast at the hotel and departure by bus (210 Km) to reach the extreme northern tip of the Vesteralen Islands, connected by a series of bridges. The road is spectacular: as you travel along the coasts of these islands, you will enjoy an unforgettable sight: mountains, fjords, sheer cliffs and the wild nature of Arctic Norway! Arrival in Andenes and hotel accommodation. Before dinner, enjoy the photo workshop organized by Gabriele Menis, so you will be ready for the first night of the Northern Lights hunting. Dinner with local specialties at the Safari Center restaurant. In the evening, you will be able to have a walk in the port area to await the appearance of the Northern Lights in the company of the professional photographer.

Day 3, Thursday, September 20Andenes - museum of cetaceans and excursion to see the cetaceans

Buffet breakfast at the hotel; start of the day with a guided visit to the museum of cetaceans and departure for navigation on the stretch of sea in front of Andenes. Because of the particular conformation of the seabed that offers plenty of food, this place has become the favorite habitat of many species of cetaceans, and there will be many chances of sighting them during the cruise. The sperm whales are habitual frequenters and often they meet in these waters also humpback whales, common whales, killer whales and pilot whales. On the way back, you will be offered a warm soup. Afternoon for relaxation and dinner at the restaurant of the safari center in the port of Andenes. In the evening, you will be able to have a walk in the port area to await the appearance of the Northern Lights in the company of the professional photographer.

Day 4, Friday, September 21The Andenes lighthouse and the Lofoten Islands

Breakfast at the hotel. You will have the opportunity to climb to the famous lighthouse of Andenes and to admire the spectacle of the Norwegian coast and the islands from a particular observation point. In the early afternoon, departure by bus to the Lofoten Islands. Arrival in Svolvaer, the capital of cod fishing, and of Lofoten. Accommodation in the traditional Rorbue, the wooden houses of the fishermen on stilts on the sea and the rocks. Dinner in a typical restaurant in the port of Svolvaer. In case of favorable weather conditions, it is possible to observe the aurora borealis among the piers.

Day 5, Saturday, September 22Lofoten Islands

Withdrawal of the special thermal clothing and departure of the excursion of about an hour and a half. You will sail around Svolvaer to admire the spectacle of the Lofoten coast from the sea. The itinerary includes the navigation, between rocks and small islands, of the arm of the sea that divides the Lofoten islands from Vesteralen to the famous Troll Fjord, between crystal clear waters and the famous beaches of the Lofoten banks that recall those of the Caribbean sea. You can see the eagles flying around the steep mountain peaks or around the raft, protagonists of photos and videos. In northern Norway, there is a large concentration of these birds. The departure time and the itinerary may vary according to weather conditions. Return to the harbor in the afternoon to relax in your Rorbue and to discover the small and characteristic capital of Lofoten independently. Dinner in a typical restaurant.

Breakfast and check out from the Rorbues for the next bus departure (420 km) to discover the Lofoten Islands by land. Along the way, don’t miss the panoramic spots: the famous sheer mountains (symbol of the islands), the white beaches, and the characteristic racks where the cods have been put in the arctic cold for centuries to dry to get the best stockfish in the world. The islands are connected by bridges and tunnels under the sea, making it possible a day that once took days and days. During the excursion, we will make stops depending on the weather conditions, and if the weather is nice we will reach the famous fishing village of A, extreme southern tip of the archipelago.
