This 6 day all-inclusive northern lights photo tour in Lapland is our most exclusive package and is suitable for photographers of all levels. The tour is led by professional photographer Peter Rosén. Peter is the photographer behind the books Aurora Borealis in Lapland and Midnight Sun over Swedish Lapland and has more than 20 years of experience in professional photography. All previous guests participating on our multi-day tours ever since we started in 2012 have seen and captured the Aurora in beautiful environments. We are also happy to be the winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award 2014-2020.
Nature, culture and photo guiding
Your guide will be professional photographer Peter Rosén. His background is as a biologist and associate professor in environmental science but work now 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. The animals and vegetation are specialized to survive this climate, from the lichens clinging to rocks up to the majestic moose. Every photo you shoot captures some aspect of Lapland culture, science and history.
We have the photo equipment and warm clothes for you.
The tour is part of the Canon Photography School and thanks to Canon and Manfrotto, we can offer amateur and professional SLR cameras, lenses (14-500mm), tripods, an astro star tracker and ditogear motorized time lapse rail – at no additional cost.

We are truly dedicated to ensuring our guest’s satisfaction and proud to say that we are the winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award 2014-2020.
