Lapland Winter Paradise

2020: Sold out
2021: Inquire here

This 6-day photo tour around Äkäslompolo in Finnish Lapland takes place after the end of the polar night. We will have special light conditions, because the sun does not rise very high from the horizon, so there will be usually several hours of moody light. Photo subjects range from winter landscapes, snow-covered trees, details in the snow, reindeers, huskies and of course the ever-mesmerizing Aurora Borealis.

A maximum of six participants make this an intimate photo tour. Each person will have a lot of time for in-depth discussions regarding camera settings, composition and anything else.

As always and everywhere, the weather is an unknown. The program and its order might change depending on the weather conditions.
