Winter in Lofoten PHOTOGRAPHY HOLIDAY DETAILS

Winter in Lofoten Photography Holiday

The Lofoten islands offer a broad variety of photogenic scenes & landscapes, including impressive steep mountains rising straight out of the fjords & picturesque fishing villages made up of typical red houses. From detailed patterns in the sand on the beaches, to the stunning lightshows of northern light in the sky, Lofoten has it all. One minute you are standing,  photographing large waves breaking on the boulders in the surf, & the next, it starts snowing, changing the scenery into a white paradise – this Winter in Lofoten!

During winter the days are short & the sun does not rise far above the horizon. This results in beautiful coloured & soft sunlight throughout the day, & when the clouds move in front of the sun, the already rugged landscape develops into something quite sinister.

During the long nights, if we are lucky, the group will be entertained by the spectacular northern lights, the aurora borealis. The borealis appears when solar wind particles collide with air molecules in the earth’s atmosphere, transferring their energy into light. When this phenomenon appears & lights up the surrounding landscapes, the dancing light show will simply mesmerise you.

The main focus during the tour will be photographing landscapes & northern lights, but our photography leaders will point out the many small details to be found at almost every location, giving you plenty of possibilities to take abstract & creative shots which you might have otherwise missed. During winter, wildlife is scarce on the islands, but when & if we come across any wildlife, we can attempt to photograph it if desired by the participants.

The Winter in Lofoten photography holiday is guided by Floris Smeets & Kevin Morgans.
