The Lofoten Islands

Nordland, Norway

Famed for its wildlife safaris and stunning scenery, the Lofoten archipelago has been rated among the best islands in the world by National Geographic Traveler. Board a classic Hurtigruten ship to cross Vestfjorden and arrive at the tiny fishing capital of Svolvaer. Plan your trip in winter for the best chances of seeing the otherworldly aurora borealis or in autumn to spot the magnificent orcas that roam the fjords in search of herring.
