About The Lofoten Islands
Where Are The Lofoten Islands?
The Lofoten Islands are an archipelago of islands above the arctic circle in northern Norway. Despite its location way up north, Lofoten’s position on the Gulf Stream means that it has a milder climate than Greenland and Alaska, despite being at the same latitude. The winters are relatively mild and the summers are cool. The largest of the Lofoten islands are linked to the mainland via a 186-mile highway. The largest town is Svolvær, which is where most people head to first, and where most of the Lofoten tours depart from.
How To Get There
There are many ways to get to Lofoten. The closest international airports are Narvik, Tromsø and Kiruna (in Sweden). From these airports, your best option is to hire a car and drive. It is possible to get domestic flights to Svolvær and Leknes but if you want to rent a car for whilst you are in Lofoten, you’ll find it more difficult if you fly to these. From mainland Noway, it is also possible to reach Lofoten by ferry from Bodø. There are also public buses every day from Narvik, Bodø, and Harstad to Svolvær.
When To Visit
Being above the arctic circle, Lofoten experiences quite extreme seasons. In the summertime, from end-May until end-July you can experience the “midnight sun” with almost 24 hours of daylight. In complete contrasts, the winters are long and dark. The long nights, however, increase your chances of witnessing the magnificent northern lights, which can often be seen from September through to April. Snow covers much of Lofoten over the winter months, with hiking and climbing being possible from July onwards.

What Other Couples Are Saying
Cat made our wedding photo dreams come true! When we first met Cat in Stockholm, I told her our dream photo would be of us at the top of the ski mountain with the gondola in the background and she absolutely nailed it. The only problem we have now is that we have so many amazing photos from the wedding, it’s hard to pick which one to frame!
The best part about working with Cat is how relaxed she is – you can imagine how stressful it can be on your wedding day with emotions flying high, and Cat was able to put us at ease and have us enjoy the moment and be ourselves. We were so comfortable around her. To only say she went above and beyond would be an understatement. I highly recommend Cat to anyone and everyone – it will be the best and easiest decision you will make around your wedding!

I cannot express how grateful we are to have had Cat as our photographer on our wedding day. We were looking to elope in Austria (we’re from the US) and it was really important to us to have a photographer capable of capturing the scenery around us. We’ve seen a lot of wedding pictures that have fallen flat and we didn’t want that happening to us. Cat exceeded expectations. I cried when I saw our sneak peaks, I cried AGAIN when I saw an amazing slideshow she put together of our day, and I cried a third time when she released our full gallery. This was partly because I was happy remembering the day, but also because she did such an AMAZING job. Our photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Above all, Cat is an amazing, kind, creative person who genuinely cares about your wedding day and goes above and beyond to make sure she captures every moment of it. She makes you feel relaxed and also knows how to make everything more fun! She had so many great ideas for fun and beautiful poses that put a not-so-photogenic person like myself at ease. I would argue that the photographer is one of the most crucial components of your wedding day, and if you don’t want to worry about how your photos are going to turn out (and want to have a kickass and super fun time taking photos), choose Cat. I know we’ll be sending everyone we know her way!
