The nature in Northern Norway provides you with extraordinary experiences

WELCOME TO NORTHERN NORWAY In the far north of Europe lies a land of craggy peaks, glaciers, fjords, plateaus and countless coastal islands. In summer, the sun shines day and night for weeks on end, while in winter the Northern Lights dance in clear, cold skies. The cultural heritage is equally diverse, with the indigenous Sami population still preserving their unique culture. Cod has been exported from the coast for 1000 years, resulting in colourful fishing villages, historic trading posts and fishermen’s cabins. Mountain hikes and bike rides take you out into the beautiful and surprisingly safe landscape. On the coast you

4

can go fishing in kayaks, or out on whale-watching safari boats. Rock carvings, Viking houses, mediaeval churches and colourful towns tell of a 10,000 year culture. The rustic cuisine of Northern Norway is inspired by the sea, mountains and plains. Festivals are a mixture of humour, charm, sophistication and energy. The towns of the region are micro-capitals with plenty to see, excellent restaurants, ambitious cultural programmes, cafés and night-life. Getting here doesn’t mean packing for an expedition; a network of airports, ferries and roads, and a great selection of hotels mean that you can travel in style and comfort. And thanks to the Gulf Stream, it’s not as cold as you think. www.northernnorway.com

LIGHT ALL SUMMER NIGHT What, one o’clock in the morning and the sun is shining? A summer’s day lasts for weeks north of the Arctic Circle, filling locals and visitors with joy, energy and a positive mindset. The midnight sun means that the sun is above the horizon at midnight. And the rest of the night. And all day. In fact, the sun doesn’t set for 1800 hours at the North Cape. We are talking weeks of beautiful, energising light. It’s hard to explain until you’ve experienced it. Are you wondering what the midnight sun looks like? In Longyear­byen, midnight at midsummer might as well be in www.nordnorge.com

the ­middle of the day, while at the North Cape, it feels more like early evening, with warm, golden tones bathing the sea. ­Further south, where the midnight sun peeps between the mountaintops and hovers just above the horizon, you can bask in the glowing red colours of picture postcards. The midnight sun means endless days and extra energy for new experiences. You might find yourself forgetting to go to bed, or playing golf at midnight. For the locals, socialising or mowing the lawn are perfectly normal activities at midnight, unless they suddenly decide to climb a mountain to look at the sun from a different angle. They also say that the fish bite ­better at night, but that might just be an excuse for staying up. SEASONS AND CULTURE

The magical Northern Lights arrive along with the darkness of autumn and winter

THE KINGDOM OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS Northern Lights: the best place on earth to see them. They tend to begin as a weak, pale green band, which suddenly begins to move. The green becomes stronger, with an edging of pink. The bands ripple and flow, billowing like curtains. Two or three bands cover the sky. If you’re lucky, the sky explodes in a Corona, with bands of deep purple, electric green, baby pink and white radiating from a centre in constant movement. Nowhere else on earth sees more Northern Lights than we do, and we have the mildest winters in the aurora belt. The Northern Lights occur when charged particles are flung out by the sun. Some of the particles reach Earth, and are pulled by its magnetic field towards the poles. In a ring around these points, the Northern Lights Oval, the particles then strike 8

the particles in the upper layers of the atmosphere. The first Northern Lights often appear in mid-August. However, optimal conditions for safaris are usually between 21 September and 21 March. It’s dark then between 18:00 and 01:00, which is when the aurora most frequently appears. After the end of April, the phenomenon is obscured by the brighter night skies. The secret to seeing the Northern Lights is to go outside. Wear warm clothes, keep moving and get away from town centres – although they do appear there too. Clouds are a Northern Lights hunter’s worst enemy. However, professional guides will take their guests to the outer coastline or arid interior, and usually find clear skies. To be on the safe side and increase your chances, stay for several nights under the Northern Lights Oval. www.northernnorway.com

THE TASTE OF NORTHERN NORWAY

Try Northern Norway specialities made from fresh, local ingredients.

In Northern Norway, top-quality ingredients from land and sea are available on our doorstep, so why not sample our local food? People here have been harvesting the rich natural larder for thousands of years.

3

In today's modern society, people want to preserve the old culinary traditions, so fresh, local ingredients are the focus for Northern Norwegian restaurants. Along the coast, you will find the catch of the day: fresh fish, prawns, whale and king crab. Grilled dried fish is one of the mouth-watering new ways of preparing traditional food. And reindeer meat is at the heart of Sami cuisine – tasty, mild, but distinctively wild. Salmon is always on the menu in Northern Norway, but make sure you try a different inland fish like trout or whitefish if you get the chance. www.nordnorge.com/en/north-norwegian-cuisine

HELGELAND COAST

LOFOTEN

ANDØYA

This route is linked by six ferry crossings and offers a drive full of contrasts, with a rich cultural landscape, peaks, glaciers, coastline and ocean currents. The coast is famous for an archipelago of over 14,000 islands and islets, and our route takes us past Torghatten mountain with its hole, the Seven Sisters, the Arctic Circle, Svartisen and Saltstraumen, the world's strongest tidal current.

All year round, Lofoten is a journey through magnificent natural scenery. The combination of ocean, craggy mountains plunging into the water, tiny fishing villages, white beaches and crystal-clear water make Lofoten really special. In summer, that means that the road can be busy, so it's good to know that you can find tiny, hidden corners and lovely detours en-route.

Andøya National Tourist Route follows the outer edge of the island, giving magnificent views of white beaches, craggy mountains and open sea. There are vast marshes from which mountains rise steeply, up to 700 m (2300 ft.) high. Andøya has three nature reserves that have been described as a geology textbook. In summer, there is a ferry connection linking Andenes and Gryllefjord.

There are still roads that don't just aim to get you somewhere as quickly as possible. With National Tourist Routes, you can enjoy beautiful drives and sights that are a little out of the ordinary. Six out of Norway's eighteen National Tourist Routes are in Northern Norway. Each of the routes is special in its own way, with its own story to tell. You can also combine several of the routes and add in ferries or Hurtigruten boats to create exciting round trips. See www.nasjonaleturistveger.no/en

SENJA

HAVØYSUND

VARANGER

Senja National Tourist Route is on Norway's second biggest island, and is another alternative to the E6 and Hurtigruten. Get here via the bridge from the mainland (E6 via Finnsnes) or ferry from Tromsø. The steep mountains plunging into the sea are astonishing and the most memorable feature of the route. And if you're looking for a hiking paradise, then Senja is the place.

Havøysund National Tourist Route is the road to the far north. It follows the Arctic Ocean, winding through dramatic cliffs and wild natural scenery, where bare mountains plunge straight down into the sea. From Havøysund, you can take a ferry to Rolvsøy, Ingøya and Fruholmen Lighthouse. It's a perfect route if you want to enjoy nature on a bicycle.

Varanger National Tourist Route follows the fjord and the coast of the Barents Sea. From birch forest and marshland plateaus to craggy cliffs and dramatic moonscapes, the route offers a journey through the contrasts of nature and the arctic climate. It is one of Northern Europe's richest bird areas. Fishing, migration and trade have made Varanger an arctic melting pot.

Head up along the Helgeland coast and its stunning 14,000 islands and islets. Take in the characteristic round hole of Torghatten before you leave the island town of Brønnøysund, perhaps on one of the many ferries servicing the local ­islands. Visit the Vega Archipelago, which was added to UNESCO’s World Heri­tage List in 2004, or Herøy with its 12th century Helgeland Cathedral. These islands are not far from the Arctic Circle! From here on, the midnight sun lights up the summer nights.

AN ARCTIC ADVENTURE ON SVALBARD LONGYEARBYEN - BARENTSBURG - KAPP LINNÉ - 80° NORTH Svalbard has four months of 24-hour daylight in summer, and three months of total darkness in winter. Both seasons are wonderful times to visit. Travel to Longyearbyen on Svalbard is by plane. The city is now a modern community of 2,600 inhabitants from over 40 different countries. Explore the city’s excellent restaurants, culture and shops. There is no road network between Svalbard’s settlements, so everyone goes by snowmobile or boat. You can hire a snowmobile, but we don’t recommend taking it into the arctic desert climate on your own. Join a guided snowmobile tour to the Russian outpost of Barentsburg with 350 inhabitants from Russia and Ukraine.

Steffan Sund

I live in Narvik and work as a car salesman.

I live in Mo i Rana and work in Sportshuset, Sport 1.

Favourite season in Northern Norway – summer.

I work as an offshore seaman, and live in Eggum in Lofoten.

I never tire of photographing Nordland’s Efjord, the most stunning fjord in the world.

My favourite season in Northern Norway is spring. I never tire of photographing Eggum.

I have two favourite seasons in Northern Norway: Summer and midnight sun, but also January/February when the sun comes back. I take photos of Helgeland, but I am also passionate about Lofoten.

Oddgeir Nymo

Sara Orzel I live in Alta and do dog mushing and guiding in the winter.

Born and bred in Tromsø. I’m happiest in springtime, when I can cycle in the morning and ski in the evening sunshine.

I have always been a winter person so of course I love the winter with all its magic. I do not have that one favourite spot in Northern Norway yet. I love every mountain, I have to say the mountains in Alta, maybe the area around Krokvannhytta.

I never tire of photographing the outer coast of Kvaløya.

@anifab @vagablondi

I live in Norway’s most attractive town, Bodø. I work in an office at Nordland Hospital in Bodø.

I work for Byggmaker.

I don’t really have a favourite season, because this far north, sometimes we’re lucky enough to have four seasons in a day. I never tire of photographing the area all round Bodø. Another favourite is the Junkerdal valley in Saltdal municipality.

@ildfoto

Anita Fabellini Marita Buland Yndestad I work in sales and live in Stokmarknes My favourite season in Northern Norway is summer. I never tire of photographing Hennes in Hadsal municipality in Vesterålen, a real hidden gem!

www.nordnorge.com

I live in beautiful Tromsø, 69° 40’ 58’’ N 18°56’34’’E. I work in tourism. It’s hard to say which season I like most, but I would choose winter! The daytime skies during the blue season are just incredible! I never get bored with taking photos of the skies over the Lofoten islands. But what really captures me is the light: incredible and sublime any time of day, any month!

Are Suhr I’m a retired businessman and live in Tverrelvdalen in Alta. My favourite season is autumn. My favourite theme is autumn, preferably with gundogs out in the Tverrelva valley, and best of all, the ever-changing Tverrelva River.

DON’T MISS... Picturesque fishing villages with charm and history

The big winter fishery, Lofoten Fishery, and history of dried fish production

Fishermen’s cabins/rorbu = Lofoten, Lofoten = fishermen’s cabins/rorbu

Lofotr Viking Museum at Borg – travel

1000 years back in time and experience the Viking Age in a realistic environment

Sea eagle safari and a trip to the Trollfjord – close to the birds and mountains

Golf on an 18-hole golf course – under the midnight sun or Northern Lights

Bike & Hike in Lofoten – combine cycling

and hiking to get closer to nature

Northern Lights – even more stunning in this landscape

LOFOTEN CODE OF CONDUCT Welcome to Lofoten, the world's most beautiful islands! Please be considerate of your surroundings by following these simple guidelines. This way, you can be sure that your visit does not diminish other people's experience

1

CAMP IN DESIGNATED AREAS

2

LEAVE NO TRACES Avoid leaving traces in nature, such as cairns, tent pegs etc. Allow others to have the same great experience that you've had.

3

FOLLOW THE PATH AND AVOID CREATING NEW PATHS

4

THROW WASTE IN THE WASTE BINS If you are in an area without bins, bring your waste with you until you can dispose of it.

5

USE PUBLIC TOILETS If none are present, go in the ocean or dig a pit in the ground. Avoid using wet wipes, as they take a long time to decompose.

6

RESPECT PRIVATE PROPERTY Camping closer than 150 metres from an occupied house or cabin is forbidden. You can only camp on cultivated land if you have an agreement with the land owner.

BE CONSIDERATE IN TRAFFIC The roads in Lofoten are narrow, yet many use them. Keep well clear of cyclists when passing them. Be especially mindful of bicycles in tunnels.

8

BAN ON FIRES During the summer months, there is a general ban on open fires. Use designated sites for fire, and make sure there is no risk for a forest fire.

9

RESPECT WILDLIFE Avoid disturbing animals unnecessarily. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.

10

IN THE INTEREST OF THE ENVIRONMENT, as well as your own experience and safety, we recommend activities oranised by tour operator. You can find a list of such organisers on www.lofoten.info WELCOME BACK!

@ritawiik

Rita Wiik I live in Brønnøysund and am a consultant in the Brønnøysund Register Centre. My favourite seasons in Northern Norway are winter and spring, when the light is really pure. I never tire of photographing Torghatten.

@turjenter_finnmark

@hildejak

Anika Paust

I live in Tromsø and work as a civilian in the police force. My favourite season here is late autumn/early winter and January–March. That’s because of the sublime light we get when the sun disappears and returns, giving us the Northern Lights, whale safaris, frost and ice, white mountains and magic. I never tire of photographing Lofoten – closely followed by Lyngen and the area around Tromsø.

@mitnor

@arcticaussie

I live in Longyearbyen and work as a Key Account Manager for Spitsbergen Travel. My favourite season in Svalbard is February – the light, sun and Northern Lights. The place I never tire of photographing? Northern Norway from 30,000 feet! And glaciers in Svalbard.

Pernille Nicolaysen and Kristine Opaas We both live in Hammerfest, the world’s northernmost town. We work as nurses at Hammerfest Hospital.

Mireille Tomatis Nordlund

We love summer here in Finnmark. That’s when the colours are at their most vivid and nature is at its most beautiful. But we also love the blue season. The little light we get paints the sky in incredible colours.

I’m French, come from Monte Carlo and I live in Abelvær.

We are never bored with the Finnmark coast. Where mountains meet sea!

The place I like most in Northern Norway is Andøya.

www.nordnorge.com

I work on board MS Nordnorge for Hurtigruten. I like wintertime – because of Aurora Borealis.

Yngvar Kanstad I work as a freelancer. I was born in Harstad, grew up in Evenskjer, but now live in Skien. My favourite season is probably late summer or autumn, partly because of the wonderful light. My favourites are probably Senja, Vesterålen, Lofoten and the Helgeland coast.

I live in Tromsø and work in a tourist office.

I live in Vadsø and work as a consultant for the Public Roads Administration.

I work as a journalist and have recently moved to Hammerfest.

My favourite seasons in Northern Norway are autumn and the blue season, the time of sublime light and ever-changing colours.

My favourite season: I wasn’t here last winter, so I have to say summer!

My favourite season in Northern Norway is spring, because it can be warm enough for you to go skiing and go to the beach on the same day. I never tire of photographing the Sommarøy landscape.

@knerten88

I never tire of photographing Ekkerøy, a tiny, charming village not too far from Vadsø. It has a beautiful beach and shoreline with stones worn smooth by the Varanger fjord.

I never tire of photographing Sørøya and its huge sand dune and desert – you could be in the Sahara! But you’re in Norway – crazy!

Martin Røkenes I live in Borkenes in Kvæfjord municipality. I work as a driver, which means that the whole of Northern Norway is my office. Every season has its charm but I really like winter best. Especially late winter when the sun and warmth start to come back. I particularly like photographing Lofoten and Vesterålen. I never tire of these areas.

www.nordnorge.com

Maiken Meslo Linn Skoglund Jensen

I’m a student and live in Pasvik.

I live in Bodø, and work in the after-school programme alongside my studies.

Every season in Northern Norway brings its own beautiful natural experiences. But if I had to choose one, it would be winter.

I love every season, but autumn stands out because of its glowing colours. I never tire of photographing my home region of Meløy and Salten, but also Lofoten with its wild and beautiful nature.

I never tire of photographing the Pasvikelva river – it is balm to the soul. It runs right outside my door, and I can also look across to Russia. Not many people can say that.

Every season has its charm. But if I had to choose, it would be spring.

The language. For many people,

Northern Sami is their mother tongue, and Norwegian their second language

I love taking photos of the reindeer herd all year. Never tire of it. Loads of great subjects and the changing weather means no photos are ever the same.

DON’T MISS... That feeling when you’ve arrived at the northernmost destination in the world at 78 degrees north. Enjoy it!

The Arctic wildlife: Polar bear, whale,

@annelisebj

walrus, seal, arctic fox, Svalbard reindeer

Glacier fronts, characteristic rock

formations, jam-packed bird cliffs and endless Arctic tundra – and four full months of midnight sun

Northern Lights during the day in

midwinter – how many people can say they’ve seen that?

Blue-tinted adventure – the indigo

sky at the darkest time of year is an attraction in itself!

Pyramiden ghost town – a journey back to the Soviet Union

Follow in the footsteps of the Polar explorers and go on an expedition!

I never tire of photographing Hiortfjell mountain, which is on the other side of the Longyearbyen fjord. Beautiful mountain, no matter what the season.

In Svalbard you can go dogsledding in summer and winter!

KYSTRIKSVEIEN WHEN THE JOURNEY BECOMES THE DESTINATION The Coastal Route is an exciting touring route between Steinkjer and Bodø. Large parts of it are a National Tourist Route, and many people say that it’s the world’s most beautiful coast. The Coastal Route should be savoured, and we recommend allowing enough time to visit at least one of the islands. You can drive the 650 km (400 miles) in 1–2 days, but we recommend spending 4–5.

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES Mighty mountains and rock formations such as the Seven Sisters, Dønnamannen and Torghatten. Glacier walking on the Svartisen glacier. RIB or kayak trips in an archipelago of many thousands of islands. Saltstraumen, the world’s strongest tidal current. The Vega Archipelago World Heritage Site. The Norwegian Aviation Museum, Petter Dass Museum and Norveg. Old trading communities and fishing villages. This is just the beginning…

Along the world’s most beautiful coastline Fv17 - Bodø - Steinkjer

USEFUL TIPS Our annual Travel Guide includes everything you need to know about the trip along the Coastal Route. We would be delighted to help you plan and book your trip along the Coastal Route.

SHOP OPENING TIMES Shops are normally open Monday–Friday from 10:00–17:00. Shopping centres are often open longer. Some supermarkets also open on Sundays. ALCOHOL: Minimum age is 20 to buy spirits, and 18 to buy beer/wine. Legally the sale of beer ends at 20:00 (18:00 on Saturdays, not at all on Sundays).

CURRENCY Payment cards are widely used in Norway, and most shops accept credit cards such as American Express, Diners, Eurocard, Visa and MasterCard. Foreign debit cards are rarely accepted. Cards must have a chip or code. We recommend you use an ATM or shop/kiosk to withdraw Norwegian currency. However, it’s a good idea to bring some cash with you, in case you are somewhere you cannot use your card or if kiosks/shops in remote locations will not allow you to take out cash using your foreign bank card.

CLOTHING SUMMER Always be prepared for changes in weather conditions; it’s better to wear too much clothing than too little, so that you can have a great time without worrying about whether you’ll be cold. Summer temperatures can reach as high as 25 °C, and as low as 8 °C. Check the weather forecast and be prepared. In summer, we recommend a combination of light­ weight and warm clothing. Wind­ proof and water-repellent outer layers are recommended, as are good walking shoes or mountain boots. WINTER The list on the right is useful advice when planning your winter clothing in Northern Norway >>
