Lofoten in Autumn Photo Workshop
14 – 21 Sep 2019 Guided by Stian Klo and Kim Jenssen
Join this 8 day arctic adventure in Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway. Highlights of the trip include autumnal landscapes, jagged mountains, grand vistas, colorful fjords and the chance of experiencing the greatest show on earth, the Aurora Borealis aka Northern Lights.
The Lofoten Islands are located at the 68th and 69th parallels north of the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway. This archipelago consists of seven principal islands and the area of land covers about 1,227 / 474 square miles, with a total of only 24,000 inhabitants. The natural beauty of this incredible landscape offers will present us with the possibility of exploring colorful fjords, jagged mountain peaks, unique beaches and the world renowned Arctic light.
Arctic adventure in Lofoten Islands
Our basecamp will be in Reine on the island of Moskenesøya. This is a world class location, and the likes of National Geographic, Lonely Planet and The Huffington Post and have listed this very village as one of the most scenic villages on earth. One look outside your bedroom window, and you will understand why – incredible granite mountains rising straight out of the fjords, traditional fishermen cabins and the location just oozes of great Norwegian history.
If we are blessed with starry nights and clear skies, we will be able to capture the elusive and strikingly beautiful Aurora Borealis aka Northern Lights as she dances seductively on the night skies.
Speaking of weather, Lofoten is notoriously unpredictable. Conditions and light changes constantly, so please be sure to read our “must-bring” clothing and gear lists.
On this trip we will explore the finest areas in Lofoten, from Reine in the south, to Svolvær in the north. We will explore waterfalls and lakes with amazing backdrops of jagged mountains. The highlights will be non-stop!

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. 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.
