Senja Winter Wonderland
Senja Photo Tour
Senja, Norway’s 2nd largest island is a wild and rugged land. Located between Tromsø to the north and the Lofoten Islands to the south, Senja remains a hidden gem compared to its more popular neighbours. With vertical peaks rising hundreds of meters above narrow fjords, high mountain passes with amazing viewpoints, quiet beaches, and no shortage of empty, narrow winding roads, Senja is a dream photographic destination.
During this week long trip we will stay in two of Senja’s most scenic destinations. The first, Mefjordvær, a quiet village surrounded by a wall of nearly impenetrable mountains that one barely needs to leave the front door to find something to photograph. Our second base in Hamn, a small harbour with open views to the north should the northern lights decide to greet us. Beyond the coastal fjords and beaches of northern Senja, we will also visit the barren mountain landscape of Ånderdalen national park, which in winter is a frozen, moon like landscape of snow and rock.
If the nights are clear, we will head out in search of the northern lights, which we will hopefully find dancing above the scenic mountain landscape.
This Senja Photo Tour offers extraordinary highlights!
- Fantastic opportunities for photography away from the hustle and bustle further south – an unforgettable treat for each landscape photographer
- Grandiose polar lights above the steep mountain cliffs and snow covered beaches
- Rough mountain ranges and pristine wintery beaches
- Picturesque villages and scenic landscapes

What our clients say
Do you want to experience a great tour where you can fully concentrate on photography and experience wonderful moments? Then Amazing Views is the right one for you. On our Lofoten tour everything was perfectly organised. We were wonderfully looked after and cared for by Jenny and Cody throughout the trip. Thanks to them we were able to make the best out of the different weather conditions. As a great bonus, I was able to make wonderful new friends during this week. Conclusion: We had a wonderful time with many unique pictures....you are amazing.
Rugged mountains dropping steeply to the sea, deep fjords, red, yellow and white houses - a breathtaking landscape. Our pros Mel, Cody and Sven made sure we were in the right place at the right time, despite the very changeable, challenging weather, and kept spirits high throughout.
Lofoten is always worth a visit, but autumn is a special season with great colours - not only in the sky in the form of northern lights. We were always guided to dreamlike, partly hidden places in the best possible light and could benefit a lot from the knowledge of Cody and Jenny. A successful week, which unfortunately went by way too fast.
The photo trip to the Lofoten was great. Because of the individual care in a small group, everyone was able to benefit a lot, regardless of their level of knowledge. It is also ideal to be accompanied by a local guide, who can immediately adapt to the weather conditions and can always find a good spot - and of course he knows the insider tips.
To photograph the Lofoten in bright autumn colours, the changing moods in the morning and in the evening and the northern lights at night were simply uniquely beautiful. Jenny Brühlmann and Cody Duncan helped us with advices and tips and drove us to the very best photo locations. We could just get started and enjoy. Cody knew many special corners and spots, which produced wonderful pictures.
If you want to concentrate on photography, Amazing views is the right provider. The combination of a Swiss tour guide/photographer and professional photographer on location is ideal. It guarantees that, in addition to imparting photographic knowledge, the physical well-being is also taken care of. I am and will remain a repeat offender.
The photo trip was excellently organized. The local Cody Duncan always found the most beautiful locations with the best light. Also special needs were taken into consideration very well. The group and the arrangements fit perfectly together. As a summary; a great trip, many thanks to Jenny and Amazing Views.
The Lofoten photo tour was an impressive experience. The combination of winter landscape with mountains and northern lights is unique and very impressive. Thanks to the expert supervision of photo professional Cody Duncan, fantastic pictures are no coincidence. The perfect organisation by Jennifer Brühlmann also contributed to the success of the trip. Thank you both very much and good luck!
TOP organized trip with 2 highly motivated and talented guides, who gave everything for their clients. I am very satisfied, and I am sure I will book again! This is exactly how a photo tour should be designed. And then once a northern light up in the sky. Great!
Fantastic journey. Excellent organization. Excellent selected locations, Jenny and Cody are excellent photographers and were able to pass on their knowledge about photography very well with many tips & tricks. I can only recommend Amazing Views... and I hope ..see you soon !
From our initial enquiry to our return, the service from Amazing Views has been amazing. The guides’ knowledge and expertise helped us novices to get out of auto mode and produce landscape photos I’ve never had have been able to do on my own. The accommodation were both cosy and comfortable and perfectly situated. Would definitely go on another amazing views adventure
This photo tour to Lofoten has exceeded my imagination. The organisation was superb, as was the accommodation, guidance and instruction. I would very much recommend Amazing Views for any photographer wishing to experience this beautiful place.
Amazing views, the name says it all: unforgettable, impressive hotspots are targeted. The photographers help to put the objects in the right light and perspective. The trips are perfectly organized. Individual wishes are taken into account. Boredom is unknown on these trips; you are on the road day and night. Wonderful memories and great pictures are brought home.
Once again, a trip excellently organized by Jenny! With not always easy weather, Jenny and Cody always put together a great program for the day and spontaneously adapted it to the outside conditions. Whenever possible we took pictures at known or less known places on Lofoten. Unfortunately, rain, snow and wind made this impossible on some days. We used the time for joint photo reviews of our pictures, discussed and debated the composition and development and learned a lot in the process.
The trip was perfectly organized from the first to the last minute. The accommodation was great, and we lacked nothing. Jennifer and Cody, our two guides, always stood by us with their great expertise and there was no question that could not be answered by them. Moreover, both of them are excellent photographers and understand their craft perfectly. We lacked nothing. This was my first photo trip with Amazing Views but certainly not my last.......I will come back 🙂
