Expedition Lofoten: 2 Weeks Above the Polar Circle

31 May , 2011  

For years, I’ve been charmed by Scandinavia. I love the languages, the people always seemed beautiful and last but certainly not least: the scenery is amazing. We’ve been to Norway on our first trip, in the west of the country, but decided to do something different in 2010. Going to the polar circle, a mythical border between warm and ice cold, and even crossing it, seemed like a crazy idea when we first thought of it. We thought we would need special clothes, buy special camping gear, and who knows what else, but all that turned out to be false. We were also drawn to the concept of the Midnight Sun, which occurs there in the summer: the sun actually never went down when we were there. When we finally googled ‘Lofoten’, we were sold: we’re definitely going there.I spent months setting up the perfect route, planning every little piece of the way to see the most beautiful places of the region in a limited amount of time. We had 13 days of spare time, minus the days we would spend traveling, that left about 10 days of Lofoten-goodness.
