Many people ask themself: Which northern lights tour is best? Well, we cannot answer this question but at least we can say that all our previous overnight participants over the past nine years have seen and captured the northern lights in beautiful environments (c. 85 groups). We are also happy to be the winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award 2014-2021.
NATURE, CULTURE AND PHOTO GUIDING
Say Swedish Lapland and images of a pristine mountain landscape, arctic wildlife, the living Sami culture and Aurora borealis soon come to mind. This tour brings it all to life! Your guide will be professional photographer Peter Rosén. His background is as a biologist and associate professor in environmental science but work since 2012 as a full time photographer. Peter offers you an in-depth photo course on how to capture the aurora, stars, galaxies, Sámi culture, wildlife and the spellbinding midwinter landscape in the best possible way.
Peter will also bring you the full story behind your beautiful images! The history of the breath taking nature and exciting culture of Lapland is an essential part of every tour. Your guide will tell you about the Sami culture that is an integral part of this region, the fascinating science behind the northern lights, the unique ecosystem you are in and how it has been shaped by natural forces over the millennia.

Every photo you shoot captures some aspect of Lapland culture, science and history.
