15 – 22 July 2019 – Varanger Peninsula, Norway
Northern beauty within your reach!
Northern Norway in summer is magical – it is the season of the midnight sun and the Arctic Summer is here. The sun does not set at all, providing 24 hours of light for amazing photography. The nightless night offers beautiful opportunities to capture arctic birdlife and the spectacular landscapes which are very much worth a visit. During one week we visit the highlands for breeding highland birds such as Long-tailed Skua and Dotterel, make a boat trip to a Gannet colony at the shore of the Barents Sea, and spend two days (or three nights) in Hornoya bird island steaming with arctic seabirdlife. The iconic Atlantic Puffins with beak full of Capelins is what we’re after, but the island has a lot else to offer as well!
This one-week tour is planned for keen bird photographers and we aim to make the most out of evening and morning lights, sometimes even staying out the whole night if the weather is clear. In short, this tour is a memorable photography experience in the beautiful landscapes of northern Europe!
