Your northern lights photography holiday starts in Tromso, Norway. Ther you will meet your guide and the rest of the group and will be transported by mini bus across the border into Finnish Lapland.
Once you have settled in your accommodation there will then be a group dinner at the Tundrea Restaurant, followed by a workshop explaining the phenomenon of the aurora borealis and how you can best capture them on your camera. Every night we will head out in search of the best location for the northern lights, aiming for a new location every night. We have a travel distance of 100km to ensure that we have the best chance of seeing the aurora.
Today you’ll get up close and personal with the local reindeer herd. Located close to the reindeer herders home, these reindeer are a friendly bunch and are happy to provide you with plenty of photographic opportunities, selfies included. Total duration is around 3 hours. That night we will again travel in our trusty mini-van in search of Lady Aurora, returning sometime after midnight.
Today you travel by snowmobile pulled sleigh up to the fells behind the village. We will be photographing in the early morning light, when the landscape is bathed in pastel blues and purples. Afterwards, we travel to the point where the 3 Nordic Nations of Sweden, Finland and Norway meet for the quickest possible tour of the three Nordic countries. Lunch will be at a wilderness cabin located close to the border point.
In the evening there will be another opportunity to hunt and photograph the northern lights.
Photography in Lyngenfjord. Stopping at various locations for the best light and points of interest as we travel up the fjord to the Aurora Spirit Distillery – the world’s northernmost distillery. Distillery tour and lunch from local ingredients. A superb location of landscape/seascape photographs as well as the local fishing culture.
Departure 9am. Duration 6-8 hours
Possibility for northern lights photography in the evening.
After breakfast you will return to Tromso by mini van.
Please note, that northern lights is a natural phenomena, and although we will do everything possible, we can not guarantee that you will see them. In January, the weather conditions might prevent us travelling by snow mobile, in which case your guide will discuss some alternative program with you.
