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 encouraged us to travel 1,000km north from Oslo into the Arctic Circle and experience the Lofoten Piano Festival. In July 2019 we made our first visit with a group of music lovers and in 2023 we will once again share this magnificent part of the world with you as we enjoy keyboard & chamber music of the highest quality with more than 10 concerts over six days during our time in Svolvær. Programme details will be available early in 2023 but the 2022 programme can be accessed below to give you a flavour of the quality of artists and music.

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 seven nights at the 4* Thon Svolvaer located directly overlooking the harbour 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 two nights in Tromsø.

Thank you to all involved in two recent trips. After the awful weather in England it made me feel guilty to find ourselves in warm, sunny Tenerife in January, hearing the wonderful Dudamel in the amazing Calatrava concert hall. Atoned for it somewhat with the even deeper, slushier, icier snow in Berlin in February, but with true Maestro flexibility it was arranged for the coach to take us everywhere door-to-door so we never needed to walk more than the width of a pavement!
