Seeing Aurora Borealis is amazing. Capturing them with a camera is even more rewarding!
Join our photography tour and capture the Northern Lights in Lapland, Finland! All you need is a camera with basic manual settings.
About the activity
Joining our Northern Lights Photography Tour in Lapland, Finland, way above the Arctic Circle, will give you a lot: first of all, you can boost your practical skills levels. You will learn how to use your own camera with manual settings so, that you can capture the best of the Auroras and share the amazing moments with your friends and followers.
But there’s more. You will also gain a lot of knowledge regarding the ever-captivating phenomenon: how they appear in the local Lappish folklore (including why you should never, ever, whistle under the Auroras…), and what the latest scientific research has to say about them.
Capturing Auroras Photography Workshop does not take place in a classroom – or, let the snow-blanketed Taiga forest be the classroom! The Bliss Adventure photography guide will take you in the wild nature, prepare you a ringside seat by the bonfire and then start sharing her or his experience and knowledge about the Auroras, and about the northern lifestyle in general, should you have some questions on your mind.
Once the theory and story-telling parts are over, it is the time to get busy practising the night time photography, hands-on! Finland Northern Lights tour guide will introduce you to use a tripod camera stand effectively and will go through the setting menus with you to get everything right. A short walk away from the bonfire will put you in a perfect photography training environment. You can expect to learn a lot in roughly two and a half hours, and have a good time, too!
Our destinations for capturing the auroras
Our photography workshops take place at authentic venues filled with Arctic nature, where the chances to see and capture the Auroras are excellent. Should the Auroras evade us that particular night, the beautiful workshop environment will offer a lot of other rewarding objects for photography.
Pyhä and Luosto are popular destinations where you can see the lights regularly. The arctic conditions are excellent to shoot the night skies against the snowy landscape. Aurora Photography Trip take roughly two and a half hours and we guarantee you will get amazing photos.
Do I need my own camera?
You should bring you own camera to photography winter activities. You will learn to use your camera with ideal settings for night time photos in our photography workshops. You can join the activity without a camera and just come to enjoy the Auroras but the experience is more fun with your own camera.
Any camera with basic settings is enough.
