The Land of the Midnight Sun – Lofoten Islands archipelago offers you breathtaking and unforgettable scenery above the Arctic Circle, this group of small islands rise majestically from the sea with alpine mountain peaks soaring to over 1000 meters. The mountains, sweeping fjords, white sandy beaches and tiny fishing settlements make the Lofoten Islands a photographers dream.

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon occurring in summer months between the spring equinox and the autumnal equinox north of the Arctic Circle. During these special hours which produces incredible colour and light that lasts for hours we will visit locations of coastal beaches, fjords. Lakes, mountains and fishing villages backed up with the incredible mixture of colours in the sky as the sun dips to the horizon.

We will photograph the midnight sun during two evenings and for three evenings we will catch the sun as it dips below the horizon.
