The Lofoten Islands are a famous destination for photographers and nature lovers. Located within the Arctic Circle, these islands are known for their dramatic fjords, towering mountains, and charming fishing villages with the red typical cabins, rorbuer. These traditional fishermen’s cabins provide comfortable accommodation and a touch of local charm.

During the autumn and winter months, when it gets dark, you can witness one of the most powerful experience: the Northern Lights dancing across the sky, painting everything in shades of green.

    What can you expect from this photo tour?

    Our Lofoten Photo Tour is designed for landscape photography lovers who want to immerse themselves in the breathtaking beauty of the Lofoten Islands.

    We’ll take you to some of the most beautiful spots, staying in comfortable red Rorbuer cottages right by the sea.

    Experience vibrant sunrises and sunsets in autumn shades, and witness the Northern Lights illuminating the Arctic landscapes.

    During this week, you’ll be surrounded by colorful scenery, immersing yourself in the unique nature of these incredible islands.

    Our goal is simple: we want you to go home with great photos, a deeper knowledge of landscape photography and nightscape photography, and incredible memories. We’re here to help you enhance your photography skills and in addition to in-field tutoring, we’ll cover both theory and practical aspects throughout the week, including post-processing classes where we’ll work on the images we’ve captured together.

    Photographing the amazing Northern Lights above those surreal Arctic landscapes, is one of the highlights and main priorities during the week. This is an experience you will not forget any time soon!
