Explore Islands in the Arctic Circle
No list of superlatives is enough to do justice to the Vesteralen Islands.
Located in the north of Norway, the five islands that make up this
archipelago sit within the Arctic Circle but, thanks to the Gulf Stream,
enjoy relatively mild winters. Here there is an intoxicating mix of
fjords and mountains all teeming with wildlife, from the free roaming
moose to the reindeer herds of the local Sami people. There are some
fantastic opportunities for photography here, during daylight and
twilight hours alike and as night falls the stage sets for the mythical
aurora borealis, a relatively regular companion to the people this far
north. In the company of our expert guide Paul Goldstein we will seek
out the best this unique area has to offer. Trips with Paul are not for
the faint-hearted - he will push everybody to maximise the relatively
short space of time here.
