Senja, expressed by many as Norway in miniature and located 69 degrees north. In a small fishing village called Mefjordvær, you are close to everything Senja has to offer.
This is not only a photographer tour. The experience is some times even better without a camera. Included in the tour we share with you, all of the material made by us during the tour. We make behind the scenes videos and pictures, as well as professional material. This you get access to in a drop box folder.
Mefjord Brygge is the perfect place to stay if you hunt Northern Light and Whales. You are living on the doc, so departure for sea is only some meters. Mefjordvær is a small fishing village with just under 200 inhabitants. The mountains in the area is extreme and Mefjordvær is therefore perfect for good Northern Light pictures. In a radius of 30 minutes by our buss you can see all the famous view points.
Each Northern Light Apartments have:
08.00 – 10.00: Breakfast
10.30: Departure for sea (One day land excursion during the week)
14.00: Back to shore (Depending on conditions and light, we stay out as long as possible)
22.00-00.00: Mefjord is a perfect place for Aurora and you only need to go out on your porch to see it when displayed. If the aurora forecast is promising we will head out on remote locations chosen by our photographers, for the ones who wants.
Weather conditions in the Arctic can be difficult to predict at the best of times. We can therefore not guarantee the main plan, but there will always be amazing sights and other things to do.
Our photographer team will teach you taking the most beautiful photos, in the arctic conditions of Norway. We will focus teaching you taking photos of the Northern Lights and the Whales.
The photographer team is lead by Anders Hanssen, who is a Canon Professional Photographer of Norway, specialized in the arctic. During the week there will be two photo courses of 2+ hours focused on Whale and Aurora. On nights with good conditions for Aurora, we head out by buss to remote locations. These are hand piked by the photographer team. The photographers are also with us at sea some of the days.
Whatever photo background you have , you’ll come home with amazing images.
Our head chef Bength Hanssen, who has with his wife represented Norway at Grüne Woche, will put together a menu based on the very best and local ingredients from Northern Norway.
Our educated skippers will teach you about the whales while we are out on safaris. We use large stabile boats. Our open one is a RIB Unlimited 37 foot with a top speed of 50 knots.
