Celebrate New Year on the Lofoten

3 Nights / 4 days


Celebrate your New Year’s Eve in one of the most beautiful areas of the world – the stunning Lofoten Islands. Steep mountains rise straight out of narrow fjords, creating a majestic scenery. Let us whisk you to Svolvær, the administrative centre of the Lofoten Islands and enjoy the perfect combination of adventure and luxury. Have fun in the snow, relax in a luxurious fishermen’s cabin and enjoy a delicious New Year’s dinner with tasteful entertainment. If you are lucky the sky will not only sparkle with fireworks on New Year’s Eve but will glow with the magical Northern Lights.

30/12/2019: Svolvær – Northern Lights hunt

Arrival at Svolvær Airport and transfer to your accommodation. Svolvær, the “capital” of the Lofoten islands offers the atmosphere of a harbour, a small town and art centre simultaneously. It is a bustling trading and communications centre. The town has many art galleries to visit and we recommend the Northern Norway’s Art Centre, Gallery Dagfinn Bakke and Magic Ice which displays ice sculptures. (Exhibitions are subject to changes). You will spend the following nights at Svinøya Rorbu Centre. Svinøya is a small, vibrant fishing hamlet in Svolvær harbour. Svinøya welcomed visitors to rorbu cabins and ran the fishing station which is the very life nerve of the community, for almost 200 years. The rorbu cabins are idyllically located between the fish landing station, quayside buildings, fish racks and other traditional, local buildings. Here, you have the sea on one side, and the spectacular Lofoten Mountains on the other.
In the evening, the first highlight already awaits you. Go on a Northern Lights hunt and hopefully Lady Aurora will send her blessings for the New Year.
