Earn yourself an incredible portfolio showcasing the very best in landscape photography when you join this brilliant 7-day photo tour of Lofoten Islands, the jewel in Norway’s scenic crown!

This wild, untamed cluster of islands is a photography paradise; an imposing collection of jaw-dropping natural sights, jagged rock formations and fairytale views.

The Lofoten Islands jut out from Norway’s northern shores, appearing to drift in the open waters of the Norwegian sea. That doesn’t mean they are difficult to reach or travel around. While they may seem pretty inhospitable, all of the islands are actually connected by scenic road bridges and tunnels.

For the duration of this Lofoten Islands photography tour, we will be hunting down the Aurora Borealis and capturing the finest sights in the area. Epic snow-capped peaks, vivid fjords, charming villages and dramatic seascapes... all will be within our reach and hopefully illuminated by the magical glow of the Northern Lights. 

The Northern Lights are visible in Lofoten from September to April each year. Although they can be temperamental, we’ll do our best to put the group in the perfect position for an Aurora photo shoot at each location. 

Grab yourself a once in a lifetime experience by booking this incredible 7-day photo tour of Norway’s Lofoten Islands. Check our departure schedule below.

7-Day Lofoten Islands Winter Photo Tour - day 1

Day 1 - Day 1-Arrival at Leknes

The adventure begins when you arrive at Leknes Airport, where your photo guides will pick you up and take you to your cabin. You will stay in the same cabin during the whole tour. You’ll then have time to rest before meeting with the rest of the group at 5pm for a delicious, welcoming meal. Over dinner, we’ll get to know one another better as we get acquainted and discuss the itinerary for the next few days. It’s a great time to learn more about the details of the tour and to ask your guides any questions that you might have. Make sure to have your camera gear ready. If the Northern Lights make a display on this evening, then we may head out for our first shoot! We are located close to the famous beaches at Haukland and Utakleiv. At night it might be possible to shoot the incredible aurora borealis if the weather permits. Otherwise, we’ll try to have an early night so that you can be up bright and early to shoot in the morning.

Day 2 - Day 2-6: Arctic Beaches

Because of the fast changing Arctic weather in Lofoten, our itinerary is always adjusted to maximize your photography experience. Your photo guides, being local and expert in reading the weather systems, will make sure you are in the right place at the right time as you cover all the well known spots from Å in the south to Henningsvær in the north. We will be exploring Reine, including the historical hamlet of Flakstad as well as the magnificent beaches of Fredvang on the outer coast of the Lofoten Islands, overlooking the Arctic Ocean. We’ll have an incredible array of photography opportunities at our fingertips, from the spectacular views of Nusfjord fishing village to the windswept vistas of Selfjord. Lofoten is well-renowned for its scenic beaches, with their golden sands and turquoise water framed by majestic mountains all around. Uttakleiv beach is a photographer’s dream with smooth coastal rocks harbouring jewel-toned tidal pools along a rocky coastline. It offers up a myriad of compelling compositions, night or day. Nearby to Uttakleiv is its sister beach, Haukland. Voted Norway’s best beach, this stunning stretch of sand is as tranquil as it is photogenic. Framed by mountains on all sides, the conditions here can be very mild. At Unstad, the swell can sometimes break with unimaginable power over the scattered boulders on the shore, making for great opportunities to practice wave painting at slightly longer exposures for interesting motion effects. Meanwhile at Vareid, wild and changeable conditions make for stunning compositions, particularly with the rock pools in the foreground and romantic, jagged mountain peaks in the back. During the evenings, we’ll continue our hunt for the Northern Lights along the shores of the fjords. The beaches make for wonderful locations to shoot the Northern Lights too. So as long as the weather is clear, we’ll spend our evenings roaming the shores in search of their elusive dance in the night sky!

We highly recommend that you get a travel and medical insurance. Your own domestic medical insurance and private health scheme will not cover you whilst you are overseas.

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the weather can be highly unpredictable. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.
