Northern Norway is the perfect holiday getaway. We recommend a trip that travels through multiple destinations to fully appreciate the beautiful scenery on offer but even if you do only choose one, you will not be disappointed. The Lofoten Islands are one of the most dramatic landscapes to photograph in the world yet the contrast of city lights against the mountains and the fjords make Tromso a particularly special destination.
