- The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world and one that as been photographed many times adorning many canvas prints for sale, and there are few places better to see this phenomenon than Lofoten during its winter season. The prime period for viewing these lights is between September and April.
- See the Midnight Sun - From late May to mid-July the sun doesn’t set. The glow of the midnight-sun mixes with twilight and sets off stunningly beautiful 24-hour days of golden light. Photographers are known to capitalize on such a fantastical occurrence, people are blown away by the magic of being able to experience the magic trick of not having to say goodbye to their beloved at dusk—but instead everyone enjoys the couple of months in Lofoten under an infinite sky with no sunset.
- Hike the Lofoten Islands - Lofoten is a hiker’s paradise, known for its spectacular mountains which, at certain times of the year when ice doesn't cover them, are said to be climbable. There are several marked trails winding around and over these mountains that lead hikers to mountain cabins - some open to visitors who use the cabins as points from where they can continue their hikes in the most beautiful scenery imaginable.
- Surfing - Yes!! even in the Arctic - Stunningly beautiful, bathed with Arctic swells and empty, Lofoten’s west coast is nothing short of a rare treat for surfers. A haven for surfers for over half a century is Unstad beach, the area demands extreme versatility on the part of those who venture out here to catch this long reach break. Surfing in Lofoten means surfing in thick wetsuits (temperatures are around 2-16 Celsius)
- Visit the villages of Hamnoy, Sakrisoy and Reine and see the shorted named village in the world Å, Reine for instance has been named one of the top ten most scenic villages in the world.

Immerse your in the Geirangerfjord region - Geirangerfjord, part of the Fjord Norway network and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of Norway's most recognizable tourist attractions. The fjord extends over many miles, and its northern reaches include the city of Alesund, known for its icy Norwegian scenery, take your camera and be sure to capture some images and make your own home decor.
Other highlights include Sunnylvsfjord (otherwise known as Raftsund), which has some of the prettiest views over the countryside. If you want to scale one of the peaks here then go for Dalsnibba summit at over 4,900 feet. One of the best ways to take in this splendor is to book a tour that will take you to all the nicest spots in the region so that you don't miss anything!
Take a road trip along the Atlantic Ocean Road - Norway’s Atlantic Ocean Road should be on your bucket list for a trip abroad. The route only spans around 5 miles, but it is surrounded by spectacular scenery and is one of the most popular destinations in Norway, and certainly one of the main attractions.
You'll see evocative landscapes full of grandeur that showcase the epic beauty of Kristiansund, including quaint villages and unique sights like an old church with troll carvings.
Ski, Trek and Hike the Lyngen Alps - The Lyngen Alps are an impressive mountain range in Norway that boasts staggering and steep peaks as well as soaring heights. There is plentiful water such as rivers and streams with rapid currents.
Lyngen offers travellers plenty of options when it comes to experiencing natural beauty with scenic gorges and lakes dotted around the area. There are also many activities available such as snowmobiling or skydiving! Just make sure you bundle up in the winter months because temperatures here can drop to -30 °C or less!
Go and see the Viking Ship Museum! - In Norway, the Viking Ship Museum is one of the most beloved and visited destinations.
This museum showcases artifacts from the Viking period that were acquired through many years of archaeological and academic studies in several disciplines. Some of these objects were found in tombs that were opened a long time ago in order to secure better control over what would happen with them.
The museum's main focus is on three ancient ships dating back to the ninth century and partially preserved as a result of having been buried for many years in bogs. One of these ships, known as Oseberg, was reportedly used as a burial vessel for Viking nobility and has secured this location a name synonymous with among some of the best-attended tourism attractions in all Europe year after year!
Hop on a Ferry and explore the Fjords - Another great way to check out Norway is taking a trip on the Hurtigruten cruise, which will take you to some less explored parts of the country which give you some great opportunities to capture some great Nordic wall art.
The name for these ferries are Hurtigruten, which means "express route", and you can catch one in Bergen and travel to Kirkenes; it takes an epic 12 days. Along the way though you can hop off at some of the scenic ports for which Norway is famous.
I would recommend for anyone visiting you try and spend at least 5 days in the Lofoten islands that will give you a good time frame to see many of the sites and capture so unique Scandinavian art. The lofoten islands are a great place to capture some good Scandinavian artwork and see many of the locations and villages and have a great adventure.
