Lofoten Winter Photo Workshops

During the tours our main focus will be on capturing the elusive but strikingly beautiful Aurora Borealis aka Northern Lights. No winter tour to Lofoten would be complete without bringing home images (and experiencing) the greatest magic show on Earth. The Aurora Borealis is visible, weather permitting, in Lofoten from September to April. Our second focus is capturing unique images of ice/winter, the breathtakingly beautiful and world renowned mountains, colorful fjords and pristine beaches, as well as the picturesque and authentic red Lofoten cabins. Photographic opportunities are present around every single corner.

Day 1, Arrival

We meet up at Harstad/Narvik Evenes (EVE) airport, get settled in our spacious minivans and start our Arctic adventure. Whilst driving southwest towards the Lofoten islands, we will all get to know eachother and discuss our itinerary and the exciting days ahead. If weather and time permits it, we’ll shoot sunset and Aurora Borealis as soon as arriving at our basecamp in Reine.

Day 2 & 3

Reine
Our minivans leave the basecamp bright and early and we will explore the historic village of Reine, quite possibly Lofoten’s most prized jewel. We will photograph all the iconic viewpoints, traditional fisherman cabins, jagged granite mountains, colorful fjords and lots more. The surrounding area and islands are extremely picturesque and we will spend the entire days exploring new angles and perspectives. Highlights include locations such as Flakstad (Skagsanden), Fredvang, Nusfjord, Å, Ramberg, Selfjord and more.

Day 4 & 5

Leknes
On day 4 we will head northeast towards our second basecamp close to Leknes. This area is real close to all the world renowned beaches such as Utakleiv, Haukland, Unstad and Vik. All of which are ideal in regards to Auroral activity. We will be chasing the unique Arctic light and explore the before mentioned beaches, as well as Ballstad, Vareid, Myrland and Valberg.

Day 6 & 7

Skånland
Continuing further northeast, we will for the last two days explore the beautiful Skånland municipality. This area is wild and remote, and far off the beaten path - and therefore, a lot less photographed than Lofoten. On the way, we’ll stop in Henningsvær - a cosy fishing village surrounded by massive mountains and the often roaring sea. Upon arrival at our third and last basecamp, you can expect access to hidden locations only known by locals, and highlights include frozen waterfalls, rivers, troll-like forests, quite frankly something completely different than what you’ve seen during the first five days. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to gain access to our secret and most precious location gems. We’ve spent the last decade scouting the area, and we know exactly where to be when the Aurora Borealis dances on the sky.

Day 8

Departure
After finishing breakfast at the hotel, we will transport you to Harstad/Narvik Evenes (EVE) airport in due time for your flight home.

There is however always plenty to see and do if conditions do not favour any part of our original plan.
