During this tour, a professional photographer will be taking pictures of you and your family while the northern lights dance in the background. If you have a camera the photographer will teach you how to take the best pictures of the aurora!

Travel with a professional northern lights photographer and learn the best tricks to capture the perfect moments. You can take your camera with you or let the photographer take all the desired pictures of you and your family with the Auroras in the background.

You will drive around 30km away from the city and arrive into a mystical forest, without light pollution. Your guide will then explain everything there is to know about this natural spectacle. During the trip your photographer can help you choose the best settings, shooting angles and locations.
