    My name is Corine, 59 years old. I am Dutch but since 2009 I live on the Lofoten Islands in the north of Norway.

    I am a Shiatsu-therapist and work in my Lofoten Shiatsu Senter.

    I live in a little village in the middle of beautifull nature where you can see the midnightsun in the summer and the northernlights in the winter.

    I live in beautifull nature, with nice white beaches and high mountains and many fjords.

    At 68N, the Lofoten archipelago is well above the arctic circle, and at the same latitude as Greenland or the northern parts of Alaska. However, it enjoys a relatively milder climate due to the circulation of the Gulf Stream, and temperatures up to 23C in the summer are not uncommon. Still, it remains a subarctic destination, the weather changes fast, and even in the summer it may become cold. When the sun is not shining a sweater is recommended.

    Reciprocally, the winter is cold, but remains bearable. Remember, at this extreme latitude - the same as northern Siberia and northern Alaska - winters ought to be very cold, but instead of 40 below, Lofoten temperatures hover around freezing in winter, and starts to climb in April.

    The Lofoten, before becoming a popular tourist retreat, is a very important fishing center, especially for the cod (skrei in Norwegian), attracted by the rich food brought by the Gulf Stream. At the end of the spring, thousands of tons of cod are hung to dry on wooden racks.

    The light varies very much over the seasons. From 24 hr daylight from May to early August to just a bluish twilight lasting three hours around noon in December and January. In March and September, there is normal daylight hours - 12h day and 12h night.
