With our special skin-based skis we are able to reach the best spots surrounded by authentic and untouched nature. our guides specialize in Aurora photography. When combined with our knowledge of the best locations for this experience ensures that on this adventurous photography tour, you'll reach the best spots for capturing the ultimate Aurora photo!
We dive into Arctic forest and ski through some beautiful locations to experience and photograph the Northern Lights and surrounding nature during the night. The forest presents a whole different side of natural beauty in the dark of the night. The calm and silence of the night offer you a chance to hear the nocturnal sounds of the Lappish wilderness. We use specialist skis that can take us through the deep snow and untouched terrain of Lapland. Using only headlamps, we get enough light to maneuver through the forest and to reach the spots in the middle of the nocturnal nature, while not causing light pollution.
Northern Lights are always unpredictable and there is no guarantee that they will appear during the tour. Because of this, our main focus is on skiing and experiencing the wonders of Arctic nature at night. What sets this tour apart from our highly popular Northern Lights hunting tour are the locations, which are reachable only with backcountry skis, thus taking our nocturnal nature photography to a whole new level.
The adventure starts from our office where we equip the team with proper gear and clothing. Then we will drive to our location in the forest and get ready to enter the woods. Once we leave the minivan, we make an equipment check and set all the cameras to be ready for night photography. Northern Lights are unpredictable, so we need to be ready to get the cameras out and ready fast!
