Far above the Arctic Circle and undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and most photographed regions in Norway, the Lofoten Islands are ridiculously picturesque with majestic fjords cutting deep into rugged peaks scraping the skies above; and along the shores, tiny fishing villages chock-full of charming rorbuer, one-time wooden-cabin homes to thousands of migrant fishermen who made their living upon these waters for centuries. Visit in the summer and you'll revel in the land of the midnight sun, and from September to mid-April, chase the ever-elusive Northern Lights as they blaze across dark winter skies high above the frozen landscapes laden with snow.
