The Lofoten Islands is situated right under the Northern Lights oval, which means there are good chances to catch glimpses of the lady Aurora when here. The northern light can only be observed when its dark and the sky is clear. If there are clouds, we will do our best to search for a location with an open sky. The main season for the northern light starts in September and ends in April.
Our trips mainly take you to the northern parts of the island where there are better chances to see it and the light pollution is minimal. We will do our best to find the best place to see the northern light, considering weather conditions.
