The Lofoten Islands, that's midnight sun and northern lights. Fish and sturdy boats. Grey/black mountains rise from the deep blue ocean high into the sky. At their feet there are small wooden fishing villages where cod dries on racks. Eagles circle above schools of herring, driven to the coast by killer whales. Otters on the rocks chew on the fish and crabs they just caught. The Norwegian archipelago the Lofoten, located above the Arctic Circle, is considered among the most beautiful archipelagos in the world. On this website photographer Eric Fokke shows why.
At our holiday house we have made a fire place on the coast where guests can grill sausages. In the fall and winter, they do it under the northern lights. This week had a few nights with northern lights, of which Thursday was very good. Hours long, everywhere strong northern lights. Tomorrow rain and then again a week beautiful weather with possibly more aurora. More on Northern Lights
