Experience the Northern Lights in Lofoten!
Because our lodges are located on the northern part of Gimsøy Island
and our lodges face north into the open Norwegian Sea,
We are undeniably one of the best locations to see the northern lights dance in the sky…
From the comfort of your lodge,
from our sauna on the beach,
through the windows of our restaurant…
we offer you many options to enjoy this bucket list phenomenon..
And the best times to see their magical dance
Because you can only experience the northern lights when it is dark outside,
we only offer these packages during the northern lights season
which is from around September to late March.
Minimum 2 nights accommodation at Lofoten Links Lodges

Arrival by plane to Svolvaer (SVJ), Leknes (LKN) or Harstad/Narvik (EVE). Pick up your rental car at the airport and drive to Lofoten Links and check in at our Lodges at the Clubhouse. Depending on your arrival time you can play round of golf (18-hole green fee included), and the hunt for the Northern Lights can begin! Download the app Live Aurora Network and just wait at the restaurant or at Your lodge for the alert and the northern lights.
We recommend a visit to the the fishing village Henningsvaer, located about 25 min from Lofoten Links to the golf. Visit the gallery of Aurora photographer Vidar Lysvold, who will also give good advice and tips for how to take optimal pictures of the phenomenon. After this visit maybe its time for another round of golf (18-hole green fee included).
When you have finished the afternoon round, you can extend your stay in the clubhouse or the restaurant Låven at Hov Gård with a good dinner in anticipation of the Northern Lights, as this is one of the better places to experience this wonderful spectacle. The location is directly to the North and the Norwegian Sea, without nearby external light pollution.
After breakfast you can do several alternative activities in Svolvær; Nature and sea eagle safari with either boat or rib safari to the famous Trollfjord, maybe visit Lofoten War Museum showing WW2 from a North-Norwegian perspective, some of the many galleries around or take a ride on Icelandic horses from Hov Farm, next to the golf course and our Lodges.
Then, another round of golf in the afternoon (18-hole green fee included), where the hunt for the Northern Lights continues during and after the round.
Depending on your departure time, you might like to have another round of golf? Lastly, return to your airport for the return of your rental car and onward journey.
