Day 1 – Travel to the Lofoten You are individually travelling to Leknes/ Lofoten Islands. There are good flight connections from Oslo with SAS or Wideroe. Your arrival at the airport in Leknes should be before 14:00h. Upon your arrival you are picked up and transferred by minivan to your accommodation in Reine. Reine is a very quaint village. Should the light be suitable during the transfer, we are already stopping for first photo opportunities and visit the beaches of Myrland and Storsandnes. Check in to our Rorbuer accommodation sometime in the late afternoon.
Day 2 and 3 – Out and about in the west of the Lofoten Islands We are spending 2 full days in the west part of the Lofoten. Here we are visiting and photographing scenic villages and landscapes and of course some of the well-known and most beautiful beaches. Weather permitting, we lead you every morning to a scenic spot in order to shoot memorable pictures of the sunrise. The day will be spent travelling to various magnificent locations in order to shoot the autumn scenery of the Lofoten Islands in the best possible light.
Since our professional photo guide Cody Duncan has been travelling the Lofoten for many years and has been living there recently, we can guarantee you that you will be able to visit the very best photo spots in the area.
After each dinner we drive – providing good weather forecasts – to one of the beautiful beaches and wait for the dazzling Northern Lights to appear in the night sky.
Day 4 to 6 – Let’s go East After a last early morning photo shooting in the area of Reine, we head into the eastern part of the Lofoten Islands. You check in to your new accommodation. During the next few days, we are visiting and shooting various very scenic and photogenic beaches, all located in a most spectacular area.
Due to the small size of the group, we are able to focus on your individual needs and requirements in the best possible way. You have the opportunity to discuss with us photographic topics of your personal choice and immediately put them into practice. These topics could be for example the technique of long exposure photography, the use of photographic filters, and/or night-time photography. We also have time for individual image discussion and photo feedback. On short hiking trails we reach the best locations in the late afternoon for a stunning view of the sun setting behind the mountain range. Upon return to our accommodation and after dinner we are of course looking out further for more Northern Lights.
Day 7 – End of the photo tour After a last photo session in the morning you are transferred to the airport of Leknes for your journey back home. The flights to Oslo leave around midday or early afternoon.
