Description
Discover the Norwegian Arctic with this enchanting and exhilarating winter tour. During the photography workshop we'll photograph all the iconic viewpoints, traditional sherman cabins, jagged granite mountains, colorful fjords and lots more. The surrounding area and islands are extremely picturesque and we'll spend entire days exploring new angles and perspectives to get the perfect composition. The unpredictable weather of Loften produces a wide variety of dramatic lighting conditions. It's the best time of the year to photograph its incredible mountain peaks and frozen lakes. It’s hard to imagine how incredibly beautiful this place is without seeing it live. This is when I feel a complete connection with this amazing place called Lofoten.

LOFOTEN WINTER    PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

DAY 1 Arrival at Leknes  (workshop meeting point). Depending on the weather we can start chasing Auroras that night. A great place to witness this light performance is Uttakleiv beach, just minutes away from Leknes. The Times newspaper named this beach as the most romantic in Europe, and its neighbour, Haukland beach is considered as the most beautiful beach in Norway due to its turquoise colors. 

DAY 2 We'll head out for a sunrise shoot nearby Leknes, get a bite to eat and make our way to Ballstad in the south of Lofoten where we'll stay for the rest of the tour. We'll be staying in the cute red cabins of the Krammervika Harbor where we'll have a jaw dropping view right at the door step. The cabins are very comfortable and are equipped with heated bathrooms, kitchen, and a large living room.

Around Ballstad we can find Reine and Hamnøy , there we'll photograph from plenty of locations both at sunrise and sunset. Sunrises and sunset last for hours so in between we'll have lunch and then move on to other locations to photograph auroras. The area around Reine and Hamnoy has plenty of spots and vantage points ideal for photographing the Northern Lights.

DAY 3 TO 6 We'll make daily tours exploring everything the landscapes of Reine, Hamnoy and Moskenes have to offer. We'll enjoy never ending sunrises and sunsets over frozen lakes, snow covered beaches, and sheer mountain faces. At the end of each day we can wind down by the re, keeping an eye on aurora activity while sharing experiences, photography tips, techniques and a few laughs.

We'll also visit other areas such as the beaches of Vareid and Flakstad,having the last an interesting and photogenic cemetery.

DAY 7 END OF WORKSHOP We'll get in one last sunrise shoot (for those that are still game) before making our way back to Leknes stopping along the way to photograph the ice formations along the shores of Lake Storvanet. The group will then be dropped at Leknes airport where most participants will likely connect to Bodø and onward.
