Northern lights photography workshop. Prepare your camera settings for the northern lights hunt and learn the science behind the phenomena. Your guide will show you how they predict the northern lights and explain how he will choose the location for each night.
Day 1 – Day 3
Each night when the conditions are right, we will go and hunt the northern lights. During the evening, we follow the development of the aurora and decide based on that if we should stay in one location or go driving more. The focus is on getting good photography in a variety of locations. Your photography guide helps you during the whole evening if you need help with your camera.
In Kilpisjärvi, statistically, you can see northern lights on 3 out of 4 nights. However, the weather conditions can make it impossible to see the aurora sometimes, and even on a clear night we might not find her. The northern lights are a natural phenomena, so it cannot be guaranteed. If the weather is bad with in approximately 60 km radius, we will not go out that night.
In the morning we have a northern lights editing workshop. You can bring your own tablet or laptop which you use for editing photos.
In the afternoon you can join your guide for a 2-3 hour walking photography tour to the arctic tundra. Autumn colours and the first signs of the approaching winter can already be seen on the barren landscape. Price 65€ pp
