TRAVEL TO LOFOTEN

The Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival would never have existed had it not been for the loyal audience in Lofoten. At the same time, more and more people are noticing the festival outside Lofoten. In addition to individuals, there is also a growing interest from groups and travel companies who travel long distances to participate. Read more about the possibilities of coming to the festival, alone or with others.

Tour operators

 

 

There are currently several tour operators who organize group trips to the festival. Many of these are based abroad. It is therefore not unusual to join the tour from Oslo or in Lofoten. Tour operators have their own package offers, but most offer packages that include festival tickets, hotel, meals and transports during the festival. Several also offer several other attractions during the festival week, such as museums and excursions in Lofoten's beautiful nature.
