17 Nov Upgrade for Tromsø Cable Car
Lofoten Links is a spectacular 18-hole championship golf course with an idyllic location in the beautiful Lofoten Islands. The location by the ocean with an unobstructed view to the north and the Midnight Sun makes playing and walking the course a majestic experience. In winter, the Northern Lights often dance in the night sky (photo).
The Norwegian government is investing NOK 60 million to improve the efficiency of the seaward approach to the Port of Tromsø. This measure will particularly benefit cruise traffic as it will allow all large ships to sail through the strait of Kvalsundet north of Tromsø.
Blue-whales in Isfjorden in June, polar-bears feeding on dolphins, a white humpback whale in the North Atlantic, and a polar bear cub riding on his mother’s back to cross open water. These are some of the interesting sightings that cruise ship operators have seen and jointly reported to the scientific literature in partnership with the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI). The valuable cooperation between the tourism industry and researchers is helping to increase knowledge about the Arctic environment during this time of rapidly changing conditions.
When the 18 hole links world class course opens July 2015 in the world’s most beautiful islands, it will make this a “must visit” location also for golfers.
The experience at Lofoten Links is completely unrivalled, offering Midnight sun golfing daylight and 24-hour tee-off during the summer months of May through July, in surroundings reminiscent of a classic Scottish links. The sea is an integral feature on 9 of the new 18 holes, with some world class golf holes. The course, uniquely situated 95 miles north of the Arctic Circle at 68 degrees latitude, makes every golfer’s dreams a reality!
