The Lofoten Islands, Norway, as location for your audiovisual production

The Lofoten Islands emerge from the turbulent waters of the Norwegian Sea, above the Arctic Circle. This unique community in the midst of wild nature offers an uninterrupted landscape of majestic mountains, deep fjords, seabird colonies and long beaches, ideal for surfing.

Between the end of May and the middle of July you can experience the midnight sun, while the northern lights can be seen from September to mid-April. Choose the time of the year well, according to the needs of your audiovisual project.

It is an archipelago of deep fjords and impressive cliffs, a conglomerate of more than 2000 islands that, in addition, forms a kind of mountainous barrier between the Scandinavian Peninsula and the Norwegian Sea. Seen from the sky, it looks like an immense great wall. The magnificent light – and quickly changing weather conditions have inspired and attracted many artists to this area for several decades. An ideal location for an audiovisual production or photographic shooting.

Reine

Reine, installed on islets and surrounded by mountains, is one of the most spectacular villages of the Lofoten Islands. It is presided over by the peak of the imposing Reinebringen mountain.
