Deposit: € tbc

This workshop will take place in July 2020 (around middle of the month) in the very north of Finland and Norway. We will explore the far north of Europe for 8-10 days. The cost and full itinerary of the workshop will be announced soon.

My good friends of Aurora Holidays in Utsjoki will once more provide all the logistics.

The itinerary will include the following areas.

Northern Finnish Lapland, including a hike to the top of the Otsamo fell

This hike is 3 kilometres each way and is relatively easy, with just a short part that is a bit steeper. The views from the top are absolutely worth the effort!

We will also visit the Siida museum in Inari, as well as stop at one of the many lakes to try and capture different views on the midnight sun.

And if we are lucky, we might meet a mama reindeer with her little one!

Hornoya island and its thousands of birds

Hornoya island lies almost as far east as you can go in Europe, off the Norwegian coast. It is home to thousands of birds including the common guillemot, European shag, razorbill and the star of the place: the Atlantic puffin. From Vardø we will take a boat to the island and spend several hours with the birds. You don’t even need a super long telelens for this, as the birds are very close.

Hamningberg

Still in Norway, we will explore the road to Hamningberg. Be prepared for some dramatic landscapes with incredible rock formations. It almost feels like being on a different planet. A true paradise for photographers!
