For winter 2022, we are preparing a wonderful Senja Photo Tour, in which we’ll visit the most spectacular sceneries of this amazing Norwegian area. Together with the Lofoten Archipelago, Senja is one of the most stunning regions in Norway. Arctic landscapes, impressive fjords and peaks, fabulous wild beaches… all in Senja is photography worthy.
During winter, we will also find a marvelous white blanket over the sceneries, becoming an even more beautiful area. Besides this, Senja, in Northern Norway, is one of the best destinations on Earth to see the Northern Lights. Because of this, we will have extraordinary opportunities to capture this surreal phenomenon during our trip. At the same time, Senja is a way less crowded area than the most famous winter photography destinations, such as Iceland or the Lofoten Islands. Therefore, we will be able to enjoy a much better and complete experience.
This Senja Photo Tour will certainly be a dream come true for any landscape photography enthusiastic. We will have all the final details of the trip soon, although you can contact us for more information or join the waiting list for this trip now. For both purposes, you can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll reply as soon as possible. Please, take into account that seats will be limited to 12 participants.
From winter 2023, we offer you our new Photo Tour to Senja, complementing our other photographic trips to Norway. From February 25th to March 3rd, 2024, you can enjoy an unforgettable photographic adventure. On this trip, we will photograph the stunning landscapes of the area, as well as the magical Northern Lights. Alongside the Lofoten Islands archipelago, Senja is another one of the most scenic regions in all of Norway. Arctic mountain landscapes, impressive fjords and peaks, spectacular wild beaches, Senja offers us endless photographic possibilities.
Furthermore, the fact that this trip takes place in winter means that all the landscapes are completely covered in snow, enhancing their already extraordinary beauty. In addition to that, being above the Arctic Circle, Senja is one of the best destinations on the planet to observe the Northern Lights. Therefore, we will have a great chance to photograph this magical natural phenomenon. All of this in a less saturated area compared to Lofoten or Iceland, the most famous destinations for winter landscape photography. As a result, we will be able to enjoy a much more fulfilling experience.
In conclusion, this Photo Tour to Senja will be a dream come true for any landscape photography enthusiast. An intense week of photography and learning that will allow you to return home with hundreds of stunning photos. All of this in a tour designed for all audiences and ages, and in a very small group.
This Photo Tour to Senja is entirely focused on winter landscape photography and capturing the Northern Lights.
Senja is an island in Northern Norway surrounded by spectacular fjords and peaks, which lead to beautiful wild beaches, giving the area a sublime beauty. Much less visited and crowded than its neighboring Lofoten, Senja offers landscapes and locations that are very similar, equally beautiful, and with as many photographic opportunities as those in Lofoten. The coast of Senja is full of winding cliffs, providing extraordinary viewpoints to capture the surroundings. We can say that practically every step we take, we will find a fantastic view to photograph.
During the week we will spend in Senja, we will visit all the locations in the archipelago, taking advantage of the moments with the best lighting conditions to explore the most scenic spots. Additionally, the winter snow and ice will provide us with idyllic conditions. We will often come across close-up shots where we can capture the beautiful textures and shapes created by the snow.
But in addition to its landscapes, Senja will offer us excellent opportunities to photograph the Northern Lights. Every night, we will be attentive to the weather conditions and solar activity forecasts, trying to make the most of any chance to capture this magical phenomenon. With a little luck on our side, we will be able to witness the greatest show of nature.
In our opinion, winter is the ideal time to photograph Senja, for several reasons.
Firstly, it is the best time of the year to photograph the Northern Lights, which is one of the main objectives of the trip. By traveling during this period, we will maximize the chances of seeing and capturing the legendary Northern Lights in one of the most favorable destinations on the planet for this phenomenon.
Additionally, during this time, we will experience the beauty of snow-covered landscapes, providing even better conditions for photography. If we already talk about truly stunning landscapes, the snow enhances the beauty of the area even further.
Lastly, during these months, the light is especially beautiful as the sun doesn’t rise too high above the horizon, allowing us to enjoy soft and warm light throughout the day. This renowned Arctic Light will provide dream-like conditions for any photography enthusiast.
Our Photo Tour to Senja is suitable for all levels, both in terms of physical abilities and photography skills, as well as for all ages. It is designed as an easy-level trip, ensuring that anyone can join and participate.
On one hand, there is no minimum physical fitness level required to join the trip. The majority of the routes we will take are very short and straightforward, mostly stopping right at the locations. Occasionally, we may take walks in the surrounding areas to explore their various photographic possibilities, but they will always be easy and at a very relaxed pace.
There will be only one more demanding hike, lasting about two hours round trip, to capture the iconic view of Segla mountain. For this hike, we will rent snowshoes (not included in the price) to overcome the approximately 400 meters of elevation gain from the starting point to the destination. However, this hike will be optional, so those who don’t feel prepared for it can rest at the hotel or enjoy the village of Fjordgard while waiting for us.
In addition to that, there is no age limit, and anyone who is reasonably healthy can participate in the trip.
As for the photography level, no prior photography experience is required, although it is always helpful. Our photography guide(s) will be there to assist each participant during the trip, providing personalized attention tailored to each individual’s level. This way, you will be able to capture fantastic photographs during the journey, regardless of your skill level, even if it’s your first time using your photography equipment.
Similarly, you don’t need professional photography equipment to join the group. You can make the most of and enjoy the trip with any camera, although it is recommended to have the best possible quality for capturing the Northern Lights. With any camera, you will be able to enjoy the journey and the experience! As an example, we sometimes have clients who use compact cameras or even just their smartphones.
Based on everything mentioned so far, we can assure you that this Photo Tour to Senja will be a fantastic photography experience. An extraordinary trip to a dream destination where your photography dreams will come true. It’s a true paradise to enjoy landscape photography and capture the fabulous Northern Lights. All of this while learning and improving your photography skills.
All of this will be experienced in a small group, which will facilitate learning and make the most of the experience. Can you imagine yourself there, ready with your tripod to capture the beauty of the area? Now you can make your wish come true by taking one of the few available spots to photograph the incredible Senja. Don’t wait any longer and join this Photo Tour to Senja.
Our Photographic Journey to Senja will begin with the group meeting at Tromso Airport, Norway. Once we introduce ourselves, we will start our journey through the Norwegian Arctic, driving to Senja in our vehicles.
During this journey, we will make a few stops to capture the first images of the trip. After settling into our accommodation, we will try to take advantage and photograph the first Northern Lights of the journey.
Today we will start early to head to a spectacular panoramic view of the Traelvika fjord before sunrise. From here, we can enjoy the beautiful morning light as it bathes the snowy landscapes around us.
Afterward, we will spend a large part of the day exploring the eastern part of the island, photographing various locations in the area. Among the areas we will visit, there are wild beaches, fjords, and picturesque fishing villages. During this time, we will search for frozen areas along the shores, which will provide us with extraordinary close-up shots. As mentioned before, due to the height of the sun during this time of the year, the light will always be soft and warm, greatly facilitating the capture of fabulous images.
Finally, we will head to photograph the sunset in the Husoy area, capturing it from a lookout point that offers spectacular views of the island. Afterward, we will have dinner before considering a possible nighttime outing to capture the Northern Lights. If conditions are favorable, we will try to photograph this marvelous natural phenomenon.
After a well-deserved rest, we will start a new day by photographing the sunrise from a beautiful location near our accommodation, where we can enjoy the stunning reflections of the fjord.
After breakfast, we will continue photographing some of the villages in the area, such as Lysnes and Indre Arnes. In the surroundings of these villages, we will have the opportunity to capture magical views with impressive fjord reflections. Undoubtedly, it’s a true paradise for landscape photography enthusiasts.
Next, we will have an optional visit, and each participant can decide to join based on their physical condition and energy levels. It is the Hesten trek, where we will photograph one of the most iconic locations in Senja, the spectacular mountain Segla. To reach this point, we will have an elevation gain of about 400 meters, taking just over two hours for the round trip. Although it is a more challenging hike compared to the rest of the trip, we believe that the reward, with the breathtaking views we will have, will make the effort more than worthwhile. We will stay here until sunset, capturing the sunset from this unparalleled beautiful spot.
After dinner, if weather conditions permit, we will head out once again to photograph the Northern Lights. Later, we will return to our accommodation to rest.
Once again, we will start the day by photographing a new sunrise from another one of Senja’s most beautiful locations in the Bergsbotn area. From the spectacular viewpoint here, we can capture another breathtaking view of Senja. It’s a perfect spot to photograph the first light of the day as it bathes the magical landscapes around us.
After breakfast, we will hit the road again to photograph several fascinating locations in this part of Senja. During this journey, we will pass through villages like Steinfjord, Bovaer, and Skaland, surrounded by incomparable wild beauty. Once again, we will have the opportunity to capture dreamlike views, as well as beautiful beaches, peaks, and fjords.
For sunset, we will head to one of the highlights of the trip, Tugeneset. From here, we will be amazed by the views of the fjord, with the sharp peaks of the Okshornan massif in the background. In addition to photographing the sunset from this location, it will be the spot where we will return in search of capturing the Northern Lights.
Today we will continue photographing the same area, returning to Tugeneset at sunrise, in search of different lighting than the previous evening.
After breakfast, we will spend the day photographing the surroundings, visiting villages like Nefjordvaer and Senjahopen, which will provide us with countless locations with great photographic potential.
We will end the afternoon with a visit to Ersfjord Beach at sunset. From here, we will capture the last lights of the day, once again with the rugged peaks of Okshornan in the background. Like the previous day, we will return to this spot after dinner, if weather conditions are favorable, to photograph the Northern Lights.
Once again, we will wake up early to photograph the sunrise, this time in the area of Hamn, on the beautiful island of Sandvikholmen. The fascinating color of the waters will remind us of the Caribbean, although in a completely different environment, surrounded by snow and stunning fjords.
After breakfast, we will explore this area of the island, visiting places like Senjatrollet and Gryllefjord, among others. From the area, we will have a glorious view of Gryllefjorden fjord.
We will spend the whole day exploring the surroundings, and we will end the day photographing the sunset once again in the Hamn area. We will also take the opportunity to capture the last moments of daylight during the blue hour, contrasting with the warm artificial lighting of the village.
After dinner, we will prepare for another night photography session to capture the Northern Lights if weather conditions are favorable.
Today, after waking up early to photograph the sunrise near our accommodation, we will take the opportunity to explore the southwestern part of the island, visiting the area of Anderdalen National Park.
Alternatively, depending on the conditions, we may spend part of this last full day in Senja to visit locations that we may have missed due to weather conditions, as well as revisit the ones we enjoyed the most.
After capturing the sunset, we will have dinner and make the most of our last opportunity to photograph the Northern Lights.
Today, we will wake up early to transfer to Tromso Airport, where our Photographic Journey to Senja will come to an end.
