Day 1: Arrival into Evenes


We meet up at Evenes (EVE), get settled in our spacious minivans and start our Arctic adventure. Whilst driving southwest towards the Lofoten islands, we will all get to know each other and discuss our itinerary and the exciting days ahead. If weather and time permits it, we’ll shoot sunset and Aurora Borealis as soon as arriving at our basecamp.

Day 2 - 4: Reine


Our minivans leave the basecamp bright and early and we will explore the historic village of Reine, quite possibly Lofoten’s most prized jewel. We will photograph all the iconic viewpoints, traditional fisherman cabins, jagged granite mountains, colorful fjords and lots more. The surrounding area and islands are extremely picturesque and we will spend the entire days exploring new angles and perspectives. Highlights include locations such as Flakstad (Skagsanden), Fredvang, Nusfjord, Å, Ramberg, Selfjord and more.
