Nyår i Lappland – fotoresa med fokus på norrsken, astro och djur
New Year's Eve Holiday in Lapland – aurora borealis, wildlife, dogsledding, ICEHOTEL and astro photo tour – 5 days
Northern lights and Swedish Lapland. The pristine wintertime landscape, Scandinavian wildlife and Sami culture all contribute to the magic of this region. We welcome you to celebrate your New Year’s Eve holiday in a relaxed way and photograph the alluring aurora borealis, the largest deer in the world – moose, visit the ICEHOTEL and learn how to photograph the Milky Way and galaxies. Our lodge is next to one of the largest rivers in Sweden, the Torne River. We will go dog sledding through ancient forests and tundra both day and evening time and more. Our focus is utmost quality, which we obtain by devoting ourselves to small groups. Learning the art of wilderness, night time and Aurora photography requires close tutoring, which is exactly what we offer. Small groups also makes moving to different locations not only easy, but definitely increases the chances of capturing the spellbinding northern lights.
This New Year’s Eve holiday package is suitable for photographers of all levels and 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 over the past six years have seen and captured the northern lights in beautiful environments (65 groups). We are also happy to be the winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award 2014-2018.
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 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 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 – without any additional cost.
