Svol­vær, Lauk­vik – 04th Novem­ber 2016

Svol­vær is a good place to relax a bit. It is not the cent­re of the world. A nice har­bour, some art gal­le­ries, a bar made out of ice, sce­nic sur­roun­dings.

For us, it was the star­ting point for our visit to the nort­hern light cent­re in Lauk­vik. Situa­ted on the nort­hern side of Aus­t­vå­gøy, the­re is a free view to most direc­tions and not too much arti­fi­cial light. This is whe­re Rob and The­res from the Nether­lands have estab­lis­hed their pri­va­te nort­hern light cent­re. They are obvious­ly living their pas­si­on, ever­ything is cen­te­red around nort­hern lights. Rob has got a room full of tech­no­lo­gy, which he built all by hims­elf, to make „direct con­ta­ct with the sun“ and the nort­hern lights, as he uses to say.

And they do have good con­ta­cts to hig­her levels. As soon as the pre­sen­ta­ti­on was finis­hed, we saw some nice nort­hern lights 🙂

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
