After ten years of northern light photography, Marius Birkeland finally caught the movement of the colours without time-lapse.
Tourism in Northern Norway is thriving, and the opportunities for whale watching is seen as part of the explanation.
The Norwegian word for mountain is “fjell”. Hence the “fjellfie” trend on social media that you can’t miss in Norway this summer.
Go right before or just after the high season and enjoy a warm welcome from locals, usually mild weather, and few crowds.
Northern Norway is by far the largest and most sparsely populated part of mainland Norway, and covers more than a third of the country. It stretches from the idyllic Helgeland region in the south to mainland Europe’s northernmost point near the North Cape.
The archipelago of Vesterålen is a place characterized by contrasts, from white beaches and idyllic farmlands to craggy mountain peaks rising from the sea.
Visit the archipelago of Vesterålen, inhabited by whales, seals, and seabirds. Situated just north of the Lofoten Islands, this peaceful region has a strong fishing culture, lots of interesting art to explore, and a front row seat to the northern lights.
Lofoten is known for excellent fishing, nature attractions such as the northern lights and the midnight sun, and small villages off the beaten track. Kayak between the islands or go fishing for the catch of your life.
