  • Lofoten Links sits at 68° North in northern Norway, above the Arctic Circle, on Gimsøy Island within the Lofoten Islands in the Norwegian Sea.

    With a population of only 181 people, Gimsøy Island is remote, necessitating transportation by car due to limited public options.

    Nevertheless, the journey from either EVE (Evenes/Harstad/Narvik airport) or SVJ (Svolvær airport) offers breathtaking scenery, making flying into EVE or SVJ and renting a car the recommended choice for your trip.

  • Simply put, the midnight sun is a period of time when the sun doesn’t set, making it appear to be daytime at nighttime.

    At Lofoten Links, this happens every year from mid-May to late July,

    Making us the only Top 100 golf course to offer our guests the opportunity to play golf all night long, if they wish, because it is light for 24 hours a day.

  • Up here in the Arctic, on an island in the sea, the weather is unpredictable and fast-changing. This poses a challenge in accurately predicting the weather during specific months and advising our guests on the best time to play golf here.

    What you can do is check the weather forecast here.

  • It must be dark to see the northern lights. Thus the northern lights season starts around mid-August, when it starts getting dark again, and lasts until around April.

    Regarding golf, you can golf by day and see the northern lights by night from around mid-August to the end of the golf season (usually mid- October).

    If you wish to see the Northern Lights, we welcome you to stay with us at Your Northern Lights Basecamp.

  • The northern lights season is from late August until April.

    Which means that our golf season coincides with the northern lights season from late August to mid-October.

    If you play golf during this period, we recommend you enjoy your golf round during the day and enjoy the northern lights at night.

    You won’t be able to golf in the dark, and in order to see the northern lights, it needs to be dark.

    If your golf round ends around dusk, you might get lucky and see them faintly in the sky as you are finishing your round.

    After your round, we recommend you go back to your lodge and relax, turn off the lights, maybe light a fire, and look out the windows while you wait for the northern lights.

    Sometimes they show up for minutes, sometimes for hours. Sometimes not at all.

    Their dance can be faint and light green, or strong and pink.

    Either way, it is 100% worth it.

    If you’d like to play out course under “the northern lights,” recommend playing our course on Trackman.
