Traditional fisherman's cabins, also known as "rorbuers", are scattered along Lofoten Island's pristine fjords. Eliassen Rorbuer, as seen here, is one of the most popular tourist accommodation spots, located on the island of Hamnøy. It is a short 10 minute drive from the Moskenes harbour, where you arrive on a ferry from Bodø.
The sunlight in Lofoten can change as rapidly as the weather. Reinefjorden, as seen here, is a regular scene for the dramatic light penetrating the ever-drifting clouds blown across the peaks by coastal winds.
These jagged peaks will seal out the stress of the outside world.
One can sit for hours just admiring the untainted scenery Reine has to offer.
On a crisp and clear night in Lofoten, staying inside your cabin would be a mistake. The elusive Aurora Borealis dances above the hills of Sakrisøy, forming curtains of light displays in shades of green and magenta.
The Atlantic Ocean road is concrete proof of Norwegian engineering genius - 5.2 miles of road that runs through the archipelago in Eide and Averøy, with a portion built directly above a part of the Norwegian Sea.
Henningsvær is a quiet fishing village off the southern coast of Austvågøya, Lofoten. It is built upon several small islands, with small roads connecting one to another. In some neighbourhoods, as seen here, people even have boats in their backyards.
When it rains, the Atlantic Ocean Road transforms into one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Huge waves crash upon the roads, making driving conditions extremely treacherous. On a clear day however, it is safe enough to walk right across. Just beware of traffic from both directions as the road tends to be a little narrow.
You will never forget those fleeting moments of the Northern Lights streaking across the sky, only to disappear within seconds.
Finse is a mountain village in the Ulvik municipality. It is home to the Finse Railway Station, also the highest train station in Norway, 4000ft above sea level.
I was lucky enough to be in Finse on Caroline and Marius's wedding day. Returning from a 6 hour hike to catch my train back to Bergen, I chanced upon this shot of them.
If you do not rent a car in Lofoten Islands, simply walking along the E10 will not disappoint.
Helicopter tours, albeit an expensive option of sightseeing, are also available in the Lofoten Islands.
Norway is littered with beautiful houses sat amongst the beautiful valleys and fjords.
As Finse is only publicly accessible by the railway station, it is one of the most popular starting points for hikes to the Hardangervidda plateau (Hardangerjøkulen glacier) and the surrounding areas.
The Aurora Borealis shows off its many colours. The most common colour green, is accompanied by hues of blue and purple, caused by the different compounds of nitrogen and oxygen gas in our atmosphere. The lights dance directly above my rorbuer in Sakrisøy.
