Northern Lights Photography Adventure

Leknes, Norway

Experience hosted by Robert

  1. 4 hours
  2. Hosted in English, Czech, and German

What you'll do

We head out of the town into complete darkness. That is the best way to experience the Northern Lights. We take a walk or a short hike to one of our beautiful locations. Don't worry; you don't need to be in good shape. It is something everyone can do. The whole tour takes about three to five hours, depending on the site we choose to go/drive. You can learn how to photograph the Northern Lights and night sky from a professional photographer. Are you not into photography? You don't have to! Just stand around, enjoy your snack&hot beverage and be amazed by the Aurora dancing above our heads! On some occasions, we make a campfire which makes your experience cosier, but that is unfortunately not possible in all locations.

Other things to note:
- You will receive the best five medium-sized, shareable photos within one week after our night experience.

-Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and there is never a guarantee that you will see them. It is not called "Aurora chase" just for fun. However, I always do my best to deliver you the best possible experience.

Hi, my name is Robert. I am an internationally awarded and published Travel&Lifestyle photographer, guide and adventurer based in the heart of Lofoten, one of the most beautiful archipelagos on planet Earth. Travelling and photography have been my passion since I was a child, and I have been working hard to combine these two hobbies into my dream job. I started my own business as a professional guide and photographer about 9 years ago, and I have done guided tours for more than a thousand travellers from all around the world. I love connecting with people and sharing our travel stories while sitting by the fire on the beach under the starry sky, waiting for the Northern lights to show up. Join me on my tours, and let me introduce you to my unique world filled with fantastic night adventures in Lofoten!

Where you'll be

There are several unique locations I take my guests to see and photograph the Northern Lights. Every site offers incredible compositions for stunning Aurora photos and the night sky without artificial light pollution. Some of these locations are very hard to find on your own, and I promise you, we will have them just to ourselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 11 reviews.

An incredible experience! Rob is knowledgeable, genuinely kind, and a thoughtful host. Was extremely lucky to see the Northern Lights and Robert’s photography skills ensured some beautiful photos to remember the amazing evening :) Had a great time looking at the lights, by the log fire eating smores and telling stories. Highly recommend!

Great experience with Robert. I learned new things about night photography and was lucky enough to see some northern light. Robert was a great guide, very friendly and shared a lot of good experience. I would recommend this tour to everyone, especielly photographers.

Robert and his assistant were super friendly and knowledgeable. I learned a lot of good tricks to get better night photos - and the best part is we saw an incredible aurora! He explained that it is unpredictable, so I shouldn’t get my hopes up (and obviously he can’t control if it shows up, for how long, or how strong). But it was absolutely fantastic! And he was as excited as a little kid, which was cool to see how passionate he is about this, even after many years! The hot chocolate was a nice treat too. :)

It was an amazing night with no clouds and a clear sky, but as Robert says you can never predict an Aurora. He didn’t keep going until we saw one, it was amazing, the explosion, the movements... We really enjoyed it and he was for us. It was one of the best experiences we had in Nordland. We will for sure repeat with him. Oriol & Mireia

Es war einfach unglaublich! Nicht nur die Tour hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und wir haben viel über das Land und das Leben hier erfahren. Robert hat uns verschiedene andere Ausflugsziele genannt. Ich hatte meine Kamera dabei und er gab mir Tipps für's Fotografieren bei Nacht. Er ist super auf meine vorhanden Kenntnisse eingegangen. Es war einfach unfassbar dieses wunderschöne Naturschauspiel MI Erleben zu dürfen. Jederzeit wieder!!!

Robert was an excellent guide who took us to places we had never found by our own. He showed us how to took great pictures and give not up until we saw a nice Aurora.
