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

The tour was nice. Our tour guide, Eric was nice, knowledgeable and good photographer. He was very patience in explaining each nice spots on our way. Lofoten is very lovely place to visit.. Highly recommended if you are scenery lover. Best regard, Helene,

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.
