Sandi Toksvig talking about her honeymoon and arriving on the Lofoten Islands said "It is as if you are breathing fresh air for the first time..it is so pristine and the sea so clear - I don't think I have ever been so happy". Milena Grenfell-Baines and I had a similar experience some years ago when Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (who was Artistic Director that year) encouraged us to travel 1,000km north from Oslo into the Arctic Circle and experience the Lofoten Music Festival. In July 2019 we made our first visit with a group of music lovers and in 2021 we will once again share this magnificent part of the world with you as we enjoy chamber music of the highest quality with 10 concerts over six nights during our time in Svolvær.

We have set out to create a unique itinerary that combines some wonderful music with the breathtaking beauty of this archipelago situated within the Arctic Circle between the 68th & 69th parallels - as far North as the Canadian Yukon, Greenland and Siberia!

No matter what you read in advance about the Lofoten Islands the first-hand experience surpasses your expectations. Often when you see tourism photos of a place you think to yourself – “we will never get to see that view without our own boat or helicopter” but the reality on the Lofotens is that these beautiful views (as shown to the right) are completely accessible and you WILL see them with you own eyes!

We stay six nights at the 4* Thon Hotel in main town of Svolvær (pop. 4,500) which is situated on Austvågøy, the largest island of the archipelago before continuing on to the magical island of Senja and finally Tromsø.

The trip to Glyndebourne to see "Rusalka" and "The Marriage of Figaro" was most enjoyable. The music and singing were superb. It was opera at its very best. 'My Hotel' was different and interesting, and our included meals were delicious.
