Tour information

This 5-hour evening tour offers the experience of a narrative guide and professional photographer, and when the aurora will appear he’ll be able to capture the magic on camera.

With the help of your guide, a professional photographer, you will also learn how to set up your camera and tripod (tripods available, let your guide know in advance) to capture the Northern Lights and take some unforgettable photos against a backdrop of the windswept bays, glassy lagoons, and looming peaks of the remote Lofoten archipelago.

All the pictures taken by us will be sent the day after without any additional cost.

The photographer will be there to give you all the basic photo instructions and information you need, and if you are not a photo lover, he will take pictures for you and of you with the northern lights in the background. Wind permitting, the guide will light the fire to warm up and enjoy.
