Norway - A Natural Paradise!

The Lofoten Islands in Norway are Norway's best kept secret and home to some truly stunning landscapes and opportunities to view and photograph the Aurora Borealis! Located well across the Arctic Circle, this Arctic archipelago offers one-of-a-kind, stunning landscapes that are ripe with steep mountain peaks, Arctic fjords, colorful fishing settlements, rich wildlife, and of course, the Northern Lights!

This workshop will take you to the incredible areas around Reine, famous for its small villages that are spread out across a string of small islands and surrounded by dramatic mountain peaks, the beaches of Skagsanden, Vareid, Vikten, Fredvang, Haukland, Utakleiv and Unstad, as well as the picturesque villages of Nusfjord and Henningsvær, plus more! The highlights are truly endless! Our local drivers know this area extremely well and will also take us to lesser known areas that are equally as impressive.

Join us for this unparalleled EIGHT DAY photography adventure to Norway's Lofoten Islands for an experience that you will never forget!

Day 2 - 7 March 9-14, 2043

Our guides are local and know the area better than anyone!  In order to maximize your experience it is crucial that you are in the right place at the right time. This means being very flexible!

  • Throughout our time in Norway, we will have classroom-style instruction that covers several topics including Camera Operations, exposure techniques, post-processing, and workflows!

  • After shooting sunrise on day 7, we will check out from our cabins and head back to Evenes. Here we will wrap up the trip by shooting sunset at a mountain lake surrounded by jagged peaks. This is also a great location for the northern lights, so we hope to end the trip with an Aurora light show in the night sky!
