Vast expanses, steep mountains, reindeers, midnight sun and northern lights. Those who travel the far north will quickly realize that there is something different here and that the contrast again plays a major role. On the island group Lofoten you will find the most beautiful beaches in the country, which can easily compete with the Caribbean beach, while the regions towards the North Cape rather stand out for their barrenness and sparse settlements. Although the Northern Norway region is the largest part of Norway and covers about one third of the country as a whole, it has the lowest population density. Those who travel the far north must not miss a visit to the Lofoten. Norway’s wild islands, which are scattered in the rough North Sea, are characterized by majestic mountains, deep fjords, sail bird colonies and wide, white sandy beaches. Thanks to the warm Gulf Stream, the climate here is much milder than in other parts of the world at the same latitude and fishing still plays a major role today. How about an overnight stay in a typical Rorbu, an old fisherman’s hut, or a taste of the world-famous stockfish? Due to their unique nature and their distinctive lighting conditions, the Lofoten archipelago has always attracted artists from all over the world. Do not miss one of the many art galleries and admire the works of the painters. Another highlight of Northern Norway is undoubtedly Europe’s northernmost point, the North Cape, where the Atlantic and Arctic Sea meet and invite to a natural spectacle. Did you know that there is no mainland between the North Cape and the North Pole, apart from Spitsbergen? Enjoy the magic of this place and marvel at the never setting sun in the summer. If you prefer it urban, do not miss out on a visit to pretty Tromsö. The city in the midst of the Arctic offers in winter the best view points for the magic of Northern Lights and numerous attractions such as museums, restaurants and Norway’s northernmost brewery. Be enchanted by the northern charm of this city. For adventurers, the dogs and reindeer sledges are ready to take you into the Arctic wilderness in winter, bringing you closer to the way of life of the native Sami nomads.
