Join us in this spectacular Lofoten Islands Photo Tour next February. Lofoten Islands, in Norway, are located above the Arctic Circle, and they are full of wonderful natural scneries. Here you can find mountains, beaches, fjords, etc… All of them make Lofoten one of the most amazing destination for landscape photography lovers.
During this 8 days long Lofoten photo tour, we will stay in old fishermen cabins. These cabins have been remodeled, so we will enjoy all the amenities in our accommodations. Furthermore, they are located in traditional villages. That way, we will have amazing views to photograph right out of our cabins.
At the same time, we won’t have to drive too much to get to the most spectacular locations of the islands. We have carefully planned all the photographic sessions at each location, so we’ll get the best from the magical soft winter light.
At this time of the year, the sun doesn’t get too high, so light will be wonderful for landscape photography.
You will only have to be ready to capture those fabulous images you have been dreaming of. We will make our best to get you to the most incredible locations at the right moments.
We will be also trying to capture one of the most beautiful natural phenomenons. The fascinating Northern Lights, or aurora borealis. We will be constantly checking the forecasts, in search of the ideal condition to observe the Northern Lights. Each of the nights, we will be ready to photograph these magical lights in case we are lucky.
From our accommodations, we will be driving around the islands, photographing their most scenic locations. We will be taking pictures in picturesque villages as Reine or Hamnoy. As we stated before, we will be able to capture extraordinary views just going out from our cabins.
Apart from those villages, we will be focusing on the best location from a photographic point of view. We will be visiting places as Vareid, Fredvang, Skelfjorde, Sorvagen, or Uttakleiv, Haukland, Klavilka and Skagsanden beaches.
All these locations will bring us constant photo opportunities for our photography. This Lofoten photo tour will be suitable for all photography levels, from amateur to professionals. Although this is a photo tour instead of a workshop, we will be happy to help those participants who need it, helping them to set their cameras, giving them ideas of creative composition, helping to use filters, etc… That way, you will be able to get back home with an amazing collection of fantastic images.
To sum up, we are offering you an intense week of great experiences and spectacular photography. A trip that you will remember for the rest of your life.
Join us on this Lofoten photo tour and enjoy landscape photography at one of the most impressive areas on Earth.
