This is a 5 night trip to the stunning Senja Island in Arctic Northern Norway., the second largest island in Norway with stunning mountain peaks and deep dark blue fjords.
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.
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 is a beautful Norwegian house in a central location on the Island, surrounded by snowy peaks and a river with local tracks giving the opportunity for snow shoeing and possible cross country skiing from the front door.
