What people are saying about Nordland County

It is a spectacular experience, they do not give the eyes to capture so much wonder. The tour was pleasant, the attention of the guide Andrea of the Company Lofoten Lights. They are of those unique experiences in life. I recommend Reine with its landscapes, all the way to see the mountains reflecting in the water, the wonderful sunset, mixing among the clouds, the sun of a very intense orange color. The houses contrasting with the landscape. Everything is PEACE

Our photographer Eric was super professional! At the beginning of the tour we were a bit nervous because there was nothing to see, but that should change quickly. The sky turned green and Eric started taking pictures. It was great fun and the results were great photos!

The beautiful excursion although it was a risk on our part to travel in December since the weather conditions quite condition the activities. In any case, it is a unique experience to see how they can live with so few hours of light in the polar winter.

Very thankful to our guide/photographer Eric. It may have been a very bad weather with the drizzles, wind and cloudiness of the skies. But luckily we still got great shots with the northern lights in the end. Tusen hjertelig takk ❤️

A very nice evening, great company and a delicious dinner. I had a very relaxing time and it felt good to be at sea... I recommend this cruise 100%! Thanks to the staff who were great.
