So excited to share this story with you all. I was lucky enough to travel to the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway for the TODAY Show.
How far would you go to find the perfect wave? Surfers from across the globe have been flocking to Unstad, Norway – deep in the Arctic Circle – drawn by the wild, rugged terrain, the perfect waves, and a totally different type of experience to that found in the crowded tropic surf spots.
Advances in wetsuit technology has opened some of the most frigid reaches of the world — Alaska, Antarctica, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden — to surfers seeking isolated adventures and unexplored waves.
Unstad is home to the world’s northernmost surf school, which takes visitors surfing all year round and has seen a big increase in the number of American surfers.
Plus, bucket list CHECK: I got to see the the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis in action!
