What people are saying about Lofoten Islands

A wonderful day! Maurizio is a trained guide and he told us many things about the islands and traditions. Fortunately there were only four of us, so we were able to make many stops to take pictures. It must be said, however, that even if the group had been full, it would have been a group of up to eight people. I heard that Lofoten Lights also organizes winter tours to photograph the Northern Lights, if I can make this trip, I will definitely contact them for the tour!

Our guide was really great, very interesting. He helped us set up our cameras and told us lots of facts about Lofoten. We were unlucky with the weather but he did everything to help us find the auroras even if that evening they were very discreet. He gave us lots of advice for the following days which allowed us to take beautiful photos afterwards.

Our photographer Eric was super professional! At the beginning of the tour we were a bit nervous because there was nothing to see, but that should change quickly. The sky turned green and Eric started taking pictures. It was great fun and the results were great photos!

Very thankful to our guide/photographer Eric. It may have been a very bad weather with the drizzles, wind and cloudiness of the skies. But luckily we still got great shots with the northern lights in the end. Tusen hjertelig takk ❤️

A very nice evening, great company and a delicious dinner. I had a very relaxing time and it felt good to be at sea... I recommend this cruise 100%! Thanks to the staff who were great.
