A winter fairytale under the Northern Lights

LUXURY TRAVEL LOFOTEN ISLANDS

Welcome to Norway’s northern coast. From the stunning architecture and cultural attractions of the capital city, Oslo, to the breathtaking, untouched scenery of the Lofoten Islands, this region of Norway offers unforgettable sights and experiences. Get a taste of Oslo’s deeply-rooted Viking history and museums, and explore the beautiful beaches and fishing villages of the Lofoten Islands, a true playground for outdoor enthusiasts. After Oslo, fly to Leknes, where you can stay at a beautiful lodge and, later that evening, participate in a private northern lights tour with an expert guide. No trip to the islands is complete without taking a private rib boat to visit all the quaint and charming fishing villages that dot the coast. Highlights include “the most beautiful place in the world” Reine, famous for its red and white fisherman huts. End your day with a scenic walk from Haukland to Uttakleiv, known for its scenic beauty and impressive natural landscapes. Continue the fun the next day with an Arctic Cod fishing experience, which ends with a goat cheese tasting at a local farm and a visit to the Viking Museum. On your final day in Norway, visit the charming village of Eggum, where you can kayak, snowshoe, hike, or ski with an expert guide.

Oslo (2 nights)

Norway’s capital and the third-largest city in Scandinavia is a modern, clean and sophisticated metropolis. With its strategic coastal location, the city has grown rich from the shipping and oil industries, bringing beautiful architecture, shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions. Nature is a vital part of the city’s appeal – you’re never more than a short car ride away from the forest. 

On your first day, you will discover Oslo with the help of your personal guide, who will reveal the very best that the city has to offer. Stop at the City Hall to see where the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony takes place each year, absorb the local culture as you stroll down Karl Johans Gate, marvel at the medieval Akershus Fortress that is now a royal residence, and soak in the architectural elegance of the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet House.

On your second day, you will have the opportunity to learn about the rich Viking culture that is deeply embedded in Norwegian history. Visit the Kon-Tiki Museum and Fram Museum, where you will discover why Norwegians have adventure and exploration embedded in their DNA. Enjoy the rest of the day exploring Oslo’s art scene, taking in the expressionist collection at the Munch Museum and the bizarre but thought-provoking sculptures at the Vigeland Sculpture Park. Alternatively, visit the observation deck located on top of the Holmenkollbakken ski jump for panoramic views of Oslo. You will then have the option to explore the ski museum to learn more than 4,000 years of skiing history. In the evenings, savor the exceptional flavors of some of the country’s best cuisine at Oslo’s finest restaurants.

Lofoten Islands (4 nights)

After checking out from your luxury hotel, take a private transfer to the Oslo airport (approx. 35-minute transfer) for your morning flight to Leknes, located in the Lofoten Islands. Upon your arrival, spend the afternoon relaxing at the lodge and, in the evening, enjoy a private northern lights tour. You will head into the wilderness that surrounds the lodge to witness the natural phenomenon yourself.

The next day, embark on a private rib boat from right outside your accommodation for your boating adventure along the Lofoten coast. As you head west, stop first in the authentic fishing village of Nusfjord, famous for its buildings that were once a part of Norway’s fish buying stations. Continue to the charming village of Reine, where you will disembark and enjoy a short walking tour of what is often referred to as “the most beautiful place in the world.” Admire the red and white fisherman huts that dot the shoreline and the surrounding peaks of granite that rise into the sky. Finally, end in the village of Å, built nearly entirely on rocks. Afterward, time permitting, you will be taken by private transfer to Haukland Beach for a scenic walk to Uttakleiv Beach. This easy loop from Haukland to Uttakleiv offers beautiful views of Haukland’s beaches and the fields of Uttakleiv. 

The next day, you will head to the port for your Arctic Cod fishing excursion. Every winter, millions of Norwegian Arctic cod swim down from the Barents Sea to the Lofoten Islands to spawn. You will experience this incredible phenomenon firsthand onboard an authentic fishing vessel with local fishermen. Afterward, continue to an organic goat and cheese farm for a private tour of the property, followed by a delicious farm-to-table lunch. Next, continue to the Viking museum with your expert guide and witness the largest Viking-era house ever found in the history of humanity. Finally, enjoy the rest of the afternoon at leisure at your lodge before a dinner of fresh seafood.

On your final day, head to the seaside fishing village of Eggum, where you will spend the morning kayaking and hiking. Alternatively, you can choose to go snowshoeing as well. Afterward, enjoy a picnic lunch in a beautiful outdoor setting before returning to your lodge to enjoy a relaxing hot sauna. Adventurous travelers may choose to go on a full-day snowshoeing experience on Mount Ryten in Flakstad or embark on a hiking excursion to the Mannen mountain trailhead.
