Come join us on a 7 day photo tour in the Tromsø region and discover the fascinating landscape, scenic fjords and breathtaking mountains, and hopefully we will be lucky to photograph the northern lights.
Suitable for all levels of photography.
Day 1-3 Tromsø
The first two days will be spent in Tromsø, shooting some of the most iconic spots and hidden gems in the area.
With our base in beautiful Ersfjorden Brygger, the chance to catch the northern lights is just outside our doorstep.
Tromsø and Kvaløya holds epic fjord landscapes, majestic mountains and stunning sunsets and is a “mekka” for photographers.
While in Tromsø, we will also have the chance to visit Oldervik, a small fishing village northeast of Tromsø.
In Oldervik we have a wonderful view to the Lyngen alps, and along the shore there are a lot of amazing rock formations.
Day 3-5 Lyngen
Lyngen is known for it´s breathtaking mountain range, also called The Lyngen Alps.
The area contains some of the most beautiful nature in Norway with it´s peeked mountains, pine woods, stunning lakes and waterfalls as well as cool rock formations.
While in Lyngen we will stay at X-Lyngen sea-cabins.
Day 5 Lyngen and Otertind
We can say that Otertind is on the bucketlist for most photographers.
This unique mountain is located in Storfjord, a 45 minute drive from Lyngen. For you to get the chance to photograph this gorgeous mountain day and night, we have booked a night at Lyngskroa Hotel.
Day 6 Senja
In the morning we will drive to Senja, Norway´s second largest island. Senja has beautiful ocean views, ice cold fjords, rugged mountains, sandy beaches, and picturesque fishing villages.
The highlight at Senja is Tungeneset, with the iconic Oksen peaks across the Ersfjord, known as the Devil´s Jaw.
This scenic area is a photographers dream in all weather conditions.
We will spend the night at Mefjord brygge, in the small fishing village Mefjordvær.
If the weather conditions are good, we will go out to hunt the northern lights.
Day 7 Senja and Tromsø
The final day we will enjoy a few hours at Senja before heading back to Tromsø. In Tromsø we will have our last dinner at the "Fjellheisen" where we can enjoy a spectacular view of Tromsø and the surrounding islands, fjords and mountain peaks.
