Lofoten Islands Photography: Arctic Winter Wonderland
Norway’s remote Lofoten Islands provide the perfect setting for incredible photography opportunities, with soft winter light and majestic mountain landscapes rising from the sea.
The Lofoten Islands are located above the arctic circle in Northwest Norway. Made up of deep fjords, craggy peaks, sandy beaches, and cute red fishing cabins, the islands are a wonderful location for landscape photography.
Especially in February, with the pleasing effects of low winter light.
I rented a car and spent 10 days driving around the Lofoten Islands with my camera, hunting the Northern lights, tracking down hidden beaches, and hiking through deep snow to capture inspiring images of this amazing section of Norwegian wilderness.
With very little daylight and seemingly endless sunrises sunsets, winter in Lofoten is the perfect time to visit for photography. Frequent aurora sightings and white snow-capped peaks are just icing on the cake.
Below you’ll find travel photography from my adventures in Norway’s Lofoten Islands, along with a short video I produced along the way.
I hope my Lofoten Island photography inspires you to visit for yourself!
