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.
