    Lofoten is known for excellent fishing and nature attractions, small villages off the beaten track, whale- and huskey safaris. The area has a lot to offer, specially in the winter with the Northern Light that lights up the sky. Lofoten is located at the 68th and 69th parallels north of the Arctic Circle in North Norway. It is well known for its natural beauty within Norway. The Lofoten Islands are characterized by their mountains and peaks, sheltered inlets, stretches of seashore and large virgin areas. The area is stunning in the winter when you have a chance to see the amazing Northern Light and combine it with activities as (Alpine) skiing and a seasafari (dress warm!). For outdoor activities Lofoten is the perfect place. Lofoten offers many rock climbing and mountaineering opportunities. It has 24 hours of daylight in the summer and has Alpine-style ridges, summits and glaciers, but at a height of less than 1,200 metres. One of the most popular activities in the winter is ofcourse the Huskey Safari. Dragged by six huskeys you go into the beautiful nature. If you do the safari at night do not forget to loop up, as there is a big chance to see the Northern Light! Oh as for a tip: Do not forget to cover your ears, as it can get cold! :-) Also there are possibilities for Surfing and Cycling. The route hugs the coastline for most of its length where it is generally flat. As it turns inland through the mountain passes there are a couple of 3-400 meter climbs. The best time to go is when you want to see a once in a lifetime experience : The Northern Light or Aurora. This is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude regions. There are only a few places in the world where you can experience this and here in Norway this is in one of the best. Check beforehand with your tour operator when and where to go exactly. We went with Voigt Travel (www.noordnoorwegen.nl) and they make sure you will get the best experience. To see such a wonder of nature you will never forget!

In Uganda it is the most safe and cheap. Please make sure you have the permit for your Gorilla track at least a month in advance (high season). The permit is around 500 dollars. We arranged the permit in advnace with Matoke Tours: http://www.matoketours.com . The transport and accommodation was as well perfectly organized by Matoke. In Uganda there are several families of Gorilla's living. We went to a 'friendly' family in Bwindi Impentrable forest (about 300 gorilla's live here). After you get your instructions you will move into the jungle in search for the Gorilla's. Please be aware: this can take a few hours of hiking through thick bush! But when you`ve met the endangered mountaingorilla it`s all worth it, even when you`re only aloud with the animals for one hour.. Absolutely worth it!! If you want a beautiful base camp to stay close by, go to Lake Mutande Resort: http://mutandalakeresort.com/ This amazing place has probably the best view in Uganda!

Bali offers an incredible wide variety of attractions and there are countless reasons why one should come to the Island of the Gods and enjoy an unforgettable holiday. The welcoming nature of the Balinese, the incredible value for money ratio for almost anything the island has to offer (particularly accommodation, food and spas) the unique, vibrant and alive culture, the physical beauty of the island, and the year-round pleasant climate make Bali a place regarded by many visitors as a “Top 100 Favorite Place” on Sullivan's List. ACCOMMODATION : Most famous is the Amandari Resort. If you want to experience luxury Bali, spend then a night at Amandari located in the village of Kedewatan, on the fringe of Bali’s cultural capital, Ubud. Perched on an escarpment high above the winding Ayung River gorge, this resort follows the design of a traditional Balinese village. Pebbled walkways link the thatched-roof suites, each of which has its own walled garden. Amandari provides a unique setting from which to experience the cultural richness of Bali’s artistic centre as well as its mountainous region to the north. More info: http://www.amanresorts.com/
