Lofoten & The Aurora

Lofoten has justifiably been described as one of the most scenic archipelagos in the world and in winter it can certainly be one of the most dramatic. A long and rich cultural heritage dates back to the Vikings who settled in the region and it has long provided an inspiration to artists who relish the opportunity to capture the unique landscape and light. It was also here that Joanna Lumley finally fulfilled her lifelong dream and witnessed the dancing hues of the Aurora Borealis.
