Winter in the Lofoten Islands

£2895

Date: 20th February - 01st March 2017

Deposit: £300.00

“Lofoten in the winter,” where the jagged mountains meet the sea, vast white sandy beaches and picturesque Norwegian ‘Rorbuer’ fishing huts on their stilts stand precariously on the shore, who wouldn’t want to be here? Not surprising that Lofoten is in the top places to visit on any photographer’s bucket list!

This wild, remote and extraordinary landscape has inspired many artists and we will spend our time chasing the light both during the daytime and at night to capture and enjoy the magic within this stunning landscape. If we are lucky, there is no better place than Lofoten to witness the Aurora Borealis.

There is so much to see, including plenty of picturesque fishing villages, such as Reine, Hamnøy and Å, amazing coastlines very near including Utakleiv and Skagsanden, all surrounded by peaked rugged mountains,  perfect locations for the immensely beautiful Aurora Borealis if we have clear skies at night, but also incredibly dramatic with storm clouds and waves.

February is a perfect time to enjoy the Lofoten Islands and with two experienced leaders - both Andy and Carla who have photographed and worked in the icy conditions many times, they have some great hidden winter landscapes to show you.

We are lucky to have secured nine nights in this beautiful area off the west coast of Norway; there is no other dramatic coast like it.  We will start and end our trip in Tromsø, in the Northern Arctic circle and enjoy traditional hospitality from our base where we are perfectly located to drive to many locations depending on the weather and light conditions each day.

Please note that a reasonable degree of fitness will be required as we will be travelling through icy and rough conditions underfoot to make the most of these fabulous locations. Our days will be long but rewarding and with plenty of food stops to keep us going on the chase of the Northern Lights!
