Lofoten Norway
Photo Tour 2018

Join Glenn Mckimmin and Rod Thomas on this once in
a lifetime trip to capture the Aurora Borealis.

Tour Overview

Located inside The Arctic Circle @ 68 degrees north, Lofoten is truly a photographers paradise.

Lofoten is an archipelago and a traditional district in the county of Nordland Norway, and is known for it’s distinctive scenery with dramatic mountain peaks, sheltered bays, beaches and untouched wilderness. Join Rod Thomas and myself on this 7 day adventure into one of the most photogenic places on earth during what is considered the absolute best time to visit this region, winter.

Limited to just 6 clients only, this trip is designed to get the best out of this location in a small, and intimate group. This Northern Lights Photographic Tour will amaze you.

The light at this time of year is amazing as the sun’s latitude stays low on the horizon, providing gorgeous soft light all day long. If the weather allows it, we will be on location for sunrise on every day on this tour, and if we can maintain the energy levels all throughout the day, we will keep on going till sunset.

If there are clear skies, we will head out to shoot the Aurora Borealis at night. Obviously, our itinerary is flexible – we will follow the light, that’s our only rule.

Tour Overview

4th – 7th February 2018 – Hamnøy

Our first 4 nights of the trip are spent at the beautiful Eliassen Rorbuer. Located on the waters edge in Hamnøy, our cabins are just a short drive from the picturesque village of Reine and the perfect base to explore this area of Lofoten. We will leave each days itinerary fairly open and decide shooting locations on a day to day basis. Locations include, but not limited to Reine, Hamnøy, Flakstad, Skagsanden and Å.

8th – 10th February 2018 – Leknes

We have secured one of the best private house accommodations in all of Lofoten for our next three nights. The Lofoten Guest House is located about 10 minutes from Leknes and is THE perfect location for our activites in this area. The beaches of Unstad, Utakleiv and Haukland are just a short drive away, and we could easily visit Svolvær and beyond from here if we decide to. Anne Gerds hospitality is second to none and I love bringing our guests here.

Today we make our way back towards Oslo after an amazing week on Lofoten. I highly recommend the Radison Blu Oslo Airport motel given its location to Oslo Airport.. plus the breakfast there is pretty nice as well.
