Arctic Norway - January 2020
Places Remaining: 8


This is a 5 night trip to the stunning Senja Island in Arctic Northern Norway. This is a photographer’s paradise with amazing views, from deep fjords, imposing sheer mountain faces, frozen waterfalls, fishing villages nestled on rocky outcrops, secluded harbours, beautiful glacial valleys to stunning island views, an amazing environment for lovers of the great outdoors, wildlife and photography.

This is the land of the Vikings, who travelled from the bays and fjords of these island in search of fish, new lands and plunder.

The arctic air is pure and crisp, the Sunrises and sunsets in the winter last several hours giving photographers fantastic opportunities to capture the landscapes in this dramatic location. We will also aim to capture the Northern Lights during some of the evenings.

This scenery is some of the most dramatic in the world, you will never have seen anything quite like this before!

During the trip we will travel to several locations for sunset each day, you will always be accompanied by a photographic guide to show you the location and help you with achieving the best shots possible. We will then be out for the rest of the day to capture the sunset before returning to our base. Dependent on the weather we will then head back out during the evening to search for the Northern Lights.

Our accommodation are Norwegian Houses or  fishing huts or “Rorbiers” along the route,  so enabling us to access many dramatic locations without too much travel time.
