Arctic Finland/Sweden - Northern Lights

FULLY BOOKED 

Join us for an Arctic adventure 150 miles inside the Arctic Circle on the Finland/Sweden border next January. 

We'll be heading out to Lapland in search of the Northern Lights on a 4 night winter photography break. The area that we are staying in has the perfect mix of photographic opportunities and local amenities and activities. You will be staying in an Arctic Lodge, set to the backdrop of a beautiful Arctic Forest, where everything is on hand to ensure that your stay is confortable while providing easy access to the winter landscape. During your stay, you will have an opportunity to photograph and ride on beautiful Huskys, embark on a snow mobile safari and visit a Reindeer camp. Evenings will be spent under the stars, hoping to witness and shoot the amazing Northern Lights.  

In late January the cold temperatures create a stunning winter wonderland of frozen lakes, snow capped trees and miles of unspoilt wilderness.  The low sun at this time of year casts a beautiful light and long, deep shadows. This is a wonderful opportunity to embark upon a once in a lifetime adventure, in the company of fellow photography enthusiasts. 

We had a fantastic time on our last trip and we really can't wait to head to the far North once again in early 2020!  

The cost of £1199 includes full-board accommodation, return flights and transfers, thermal suit and boots, photography training, snow mobile hire, husky ride, reindeer trek and Northern Lights safari.

The duration is 4 nights from Sunday 26th January 2019. 

Rooms are single occupancy basis unless travelling as a couple.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed every single trip from the Lake District, Paris, Budapest but my absolute favourite was the trip to Finland, we may not have been lucky enough to see the Northern Lights but what a fantastic adventure it turned out to be!! Each trip has been made extra special with the fabulous group of people that we have had the pleasure of making friends with, aside from that there is of course the excellent opportunity to take some amazing photographs of simply stunning scenery and architecture. The trips are always well organised and thoroughly thought through from beginning to end, as well as coming away with some truly amazing photos you will for sure meet some lovely people and make fantastic memories......"

Testimonials

Michael has a unique ability to take complicated subject matter and deliver it in a simple, passionate and infectious manner. He has taken me on a journey with his workshops from ‘extreme novice’ that was absolutely clueless to a confident enthusiast. I will be eternally grateful for all of Michael’s efforts in going the extra mile throughout my learning journey. He is a credit to his profession and he sets the standards for the rest of his industry to follow. Oh, and he is a thoroughly likeable chap too!

Great weekend away and I’m really pleased with my photographs! Thanks for a fantastic workshop, everything was first class, including the hotel, the food and the weather! I really enjoyed learning about different ways to compose my photos for a more professional feel. The workshop was well planned and was extremely informative and interesting. The fact that Michael kept a close eye on everybody's progress was an extra bonus. Thanks Michael

I  attended my first camera course as a complete beginner, I didn’t even know how to turn the camera on! The initial course was perfect for me, very well explained throughout and left me wanting to know more. Michael and the team are brilliant teachers, they are all very patient and we have a lot of laughs along the way. Since learning how to use my camera I have progressed on to landscape workshops and now class myself as being very confident with my kit. I’ve joined Michael on many occassions and would definitely recommend these workshops!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first photography holiday to Budapest.  It was a beautiful city with plenty of opportunities to take fabulous photos.  Having Michael and Scott on hand to help you create that perfect photo and to give you advice was so valuable. It was a great group of people and a fantastic experience. Thank you!

I had a great time in London with plenty of opportunities to photograph architecture and try my hand at street photography. The London skyline after dark is something special.  Michael is knowledgeable and enthusiastic and readily on hand to give assistance and feedback throughout the trip.
