Arrival at Evenes Airport (Harstad / Narvik); after all the participants have arrived, we will head towards the small town of Svolvaer, in the heart of the Lofoten islands! It’s where we will spend our first night; according to the timing, we will see if we can make a first photo session at sunset. One thing is for sure: after settling down and having stuffed our stomach with some Norwegian local dishes, we will be out again in the hope of having a first meeting with the green lady!
After a morning session at “dawn” (in this period of the year the sun is always low on the horizon and there isn’t a real sunrise and sunset phase, there are only hours of warm and spectacular light!) we will continue southwards entering into what is in fact the most characteristic and evocative part of the archipelago; we will use stay in the southern part of the archipelago for the whole length of the trip, since all the most beautiful and popular photography locations are there. We’ll stay between Leknes and Reine, generally in one of the typical rorbuer (fishermen’s houses). Needless to say, in the evening we will return to hunt the Northern Lights again!
We will continue the exploration, started the previous day, of the area around Leknes, between the famous beaches of Uttakleiv and Haukland and some lesser known gems of these areas. Trust me, the locations in this area are certainly not lacking!
We will move to the southern tip of the archipelago, in the area of the characteristic villages of Reine and Hamnoy, or in places that have made these islands famous! We will have the opportunity to finally photograph the famous red houses perched at the foot of incredible mountains in a context that define “picturesque” is an understatement.
We will dedicate another day to the exploration of this area, in search of different points of view and to discover locations a bit more off the tourist path to really experience the atmosphere of peace that can be found in these places. Like every evening, weather permitting we’ll stay out hunting for the Northern Lights!
Unfortunately, we begin to drive back to come closer to the airport, considering the departure of the day after; we will drive once again in one of the most evocative roads of this Earth and we will stay not far from the airport for the night.
Time to say goodbye, unfortunately! The tour ends and the participants will be taken to the airport to be able to take their flights back home.
