New Years in the North


For the past three years I’ve left the country to ring in the New Year with an epic adventure. The first year was in Switzerland, last year was in Morocco, and this year I headed north... really north! The Lofoten Islands and the land of darkness was the goal.

Our journey started in Bodø, home to incredible street art. And being further south than Lofoten the sun does actually rise here for a few hours a day.

After a four hour sea-sick ridden ferry ride and a two hour drive on icy roads we had arrived in Svolvær and got our first and only taste of an aurora.

Saying goodbye to 2018...

...and hello to 2019

There was no better way to kick off an amazing 2019 ahead than in Norway!

Thanks, as always, for following along! Hope you enjoyed this visual journey to Northern Norway. You can find me on Instagram and Facebook @andyaustinphoto #norway #lofoten #travel
