Lofoten in Winter

Lofoten in Winter

No winter visit to Lofoten would be complete without experiencing the greatest magic show on Earth… the strikingly beautiful Aurora Borealis, a.k.a. Northern Lights.

During this workshop, we will also focus on capturing unique images of Lofoten in winter, including the breathtakingly beautiful and world-renowned mountains, colorful fjords, pristine beaches, and the picturesque and authentic red Lofoten cabins.

Photographic opportunities are present around every single corner!

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival

We will meet up at Evenes (EVE), get settled in our spacious minivans, and start our Arctic adventure. While driving southwest towards the Lofoten islands, we will all get to know each other and discuss our itinerary and the exciting days ahead.

If weather and time permits, we’ll shoot sunset and Aurora Borealis as soon as arriving at our basecamp.

Days 2 – 4: Reine

Our minivans leave the basecamp bright and early to explore the historic village of Reine – quite possibly Lofoten’s most prized jewel. We will photograph all the iconic viewpoints, traditional fisherman cabins, jagged granite mountains, colorful fjords, and lots more.

The surrounding area and islands are incredibly picturesque, and we will spend our days exploring new angles and perspectives. Highlights include locations such as Flakstad (Skagsanden), Fredvang, Nusfjord, Å, Ramberg, Selfjord and more.

Days 5 – 7: Leknes

This area of the Lofoten islands is close to world-renowned beaches such as Utakleiv, Haukland, Unstad, and Vik – all of which are ideal for Auroral activity. We will be chasing the unique Arctic light as we explore these beaches, as well as Ballstad, Vareid, Myrland, and Valberg.

Important Workshop Information

This tour is always dependent on weather, as the Arctic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable.

When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.

There is, however, always plenty to see and do if conditions do not favor any part of our original plan.
