Lofoten, Norway, Trip Details

 

6-Day Photographic Adventure

This is really something special. We will be staying in beautiful historic red 'fishermen's 'Rorbuer' cabins in the heart of one of the most beautiful towns in Norway - Reine. The town is surrounded by the 'Lofoten wall' of scenic mountains'. Just step right outside your cabin and you're in the most dramatic landscape setting.

Getting to the trip

SAS airlines and Wideroe fly to Leknes from Oslo. Due to flight delays and disruptions, we advise that you should stay a night in Oslo on your way out and also on your way back to ensure you make your homeward connection.

Arrival

Bruce will meet you in Leknes, Lofoten and drive us all to Reine for the first night where we will settle into our accommodation in the beautiful fishing cabins, situated right in the heart of Reine with immediate views of the surrounding area.

Equipment needed

• Film or Digital SLR camera
• Tripod
• Neutral density graduated filters

Daily Schedule Outline

The days are short in February, but this has plenty of benefits. Because the sun is low in the sky all day it means we have beautiful light lasting all day and it's possible to make great photos even at mid day.

Sunrise is late at 8am allowing for more time in bed while sunset is early at 4:30pm, meaning we'll be back at our accommodation in Reine for dinner and some well earned time off in the evenings.

7:00 - 9:00am
On location for sunrise. Most mornings we will spend in and around the town of Reine, once voted Norway's most scienic town. The surrounding area has plenty to keep us occupied.

9:00 - 10:00am
Breakfast.

10:00am - 12:00pm
Heading back out to shoot for the remainder of the day. Often traveling further afield up to one of my favourite places Flakstad.

12:00pm - 1:00pm
Lunch on location.

1:00 - 5:00pm (February)
Late afternoon shooting where we will stay out until after sunset and twilight has finished.

7:00 - 8:00pm
Dinner.

8:00 - as long as you wish to stay up!
Your time off, but if you want to head out into the small beautiful town of Reine to make images in the snow, and perhaps spot the northern lights, then feel free.
