The Lofoten archipelago is a photographer's dream. Sharp, pointy mountains tower over fjords; cracked, frozen lakes, legendary beaches, traditional red cabins and magical light - this pearl of the arctic has it all. This winter workshop will take you on a wild ride through the most magical locations in the archipelago. We will focus on, and stay in, the absolute best spots for landscape photography, and we will take advantage of all its famous features. Aurora borealis is possible on clear nights, as well.
Mostly Beginner. Good mobility is required, but there will be no difficult climbing or hikes. However, you need to be able to walk on rocks and icy surfaces (with ice spikes or ice crampons), and to be able to withstand incoming waves and maintain stability, should you want to shoot in the water. Winter conditions in northern Norway can be harsh, and you must be prepared to withstand temperatues as low as -10 degrees centigrade in addition to strong winds, snow, hail or rain, but conditions are usually far better than one would expect.
