WINTER – NORTHERN LIGHTS + WHALE SAFARI + MOOSE SAFARI PRO ADVENTURE PHOTO TOUR
ABISKO & NORWAY – 9 DAY
This 9 day Abisko & Norway Northern Lights + Whale Safari + Moose Safari Pro Adventure Photo Tour will begin the moment your plane touches down in the Arctic Circle allowing you more time at each location to enjoy 1-on-1 tuition.
Once you have settled into your cosy accommodation, we will meet as a group to discuss the upcoming adventures of your photo tour and guidance on the best possible techniques to use to achieve great images captured on the tour and offer solutions to editing and post production of your photos once you are home.
In the frozen wilderness of the north, you will immediately be in awe of the wonders of nature being surrounded by pristine snow capped mountain peaks, crystal clean skies and the fresh alpine air.
Our first stop, in the middle of a snow covered pine forest, is the small village of Jukkasjarvi on the River Torne. Here we will explore the surreal atmosphere of the world’s largest igloo, the original Ice Hotel in Sweden’s Lapland.
After settling into our cosy accommodation we will head out to the Abisko National Park to capture the breathtaking Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) darting and swirling across the open skies.
An afternoon will be spent on a Moose Safari.
After a scenic journey to Norway stopping to capture the stunning valleys, beautiful mountain vistas and dramatic fjords on route, we will cruise the waters of the Andfjorden to a quaint remote island. Nestled within the Krottoy-Troms Archipeligo, this island will provide an isolated environment, free of city lights and pollution, making it the perfect location to snap many great photos of the night time Aurora rays bouncing across the night skies.
During your stay,you venture out on a short boat journey to an idyllic spot in the Norwegian waters. Here we will be Whale Safari. You will be amazed at how the whales frolick in the waters and seem to perform a show for us so we can capture these awe inspiring creatures up close in their natural environment. This is an opportunity of a lifetime.
Once back in Abisko, we will capture the suns movements at both ends of the day. We will set off early on our snowmobiles to a frozen lake to take advantage of the beautiful sun rise over the Abisko National Park.
You will marvel at the open night skies of Abisko, we will drive our snow mobiles to the perfect spot to capture amazing photos of the swirling Aurora Borealis rays. While sitting on authentic reindeer skins, enjoying a hot lingonberry juice and chocolate, David will share his expertise with you on the best ways to capture the awe-inspiring visions of the Northern Lights.
You simply can’t leave Abisko without snapping some photos of the iconic reindeer as they feed in a snowy field. Prepare for a cacophony of excitement as we take you to photograph husky dogs being set up for their days adventures out in the snow and a traditional Sami village.
Strapping on some snowshoes and venturing up a gentle slope to photograph a traditional church and, walking a little further positions us perfectly to capture vast panoramic shots of the frozen Lake Tornetrask with the spectacular snow covered mountains as a back drop.
