What people are saying about Svolvær
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!
It is a spectacular experience, they do not give the eyes to capture so much wonder. The tour was pleasant, the attention of the guide Andrea of the Company Lofoten Lights. They are of those unique experiences in life. I recommend Reine with its landscapes, all the way to see the mountains reflecting in the water, the wonderful sunset, mixing among the clouds, the sun of a very intense orange color. The houses contrasting with the landscape. Everything is PEACE
It was very interesting, there were no very strong lights, thanks to the insistence of the guide Andrea we managed to see and enjoy them. Andrea the guide was very friendly, willing at all times to give a good service. We went to a beach to see the Northern Lights, I recommend this company. They are good professionals. Thanks to Andrea !!!
Eric, our tour guide, he tried way beyond to find the Northern Lights but as the Tour says "chase the Northern Lights". He made sure that we were comfortable and that there was a bathroom break as well as offered coffee and cookies. Incredible service, information - outstanding
The beautiful excursion although it was a risk on our part to travel in December since the weather conditions quite condition the activities. In any case, it is a unique experience to see how they can live with so few hours of light in the polar winter.
