Lofoten Islands, Photo Adventure Trip summary The stunning Lofoten islands lie inside the Arctic circle just off the coast of Norway. The Lofoten archipelago consists of many islands and you’ll be visiting and exploring 4 of these Norwegian gems. Deep fjords, jagged peaks, wide pristine beaches and hopefully the Northern lights will make this an incredible photography experience. Lofoten is a truly spectacular destination for photographers in what is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. Your first base will be near your arrival point in the small town of Leknes on Vestvagøy, from here you’ll photograph the beaches of Unstad, Uttakleiv, Haukland and Vik at dusk and dawn. They’re also ideal spots for catching the on Northern Lights if they make an appearance in the dark winter skies. The Island of Moskensøy and village of Reine will provide our second base. One of the most memorable and photogenic places you ever photograph. Around Reine, the pointed peak of Olstinden rises steeply from Reinefjord and the surrounding islands with small hamlets are dotted with picture perfect cabins ( Rorbuer and Sjohus ), raised above the dark depths of the fjord on stilts. The nearby fishing villages of Tind, Å, Sakrisoy and Sorvagen can be explored on foot with every aspect bursting with photo opportunities. This a photographic opportunity not to be missed and one that will make a lasting impression. Places are limited to small, intimate groups of just 6 so book online now .
