I am planning an arctic photographic workshop in Lapland, from 18th to 24th February 2024, in the Seven Fells area near Kittilä, in Finland.
We will be backcountry skiing through snow covered forests, staying in lumberjack cabins deep in the woods, night-hiking up fells, and generally having a delightfully cold time in beautiful scenery. There will also be the possibility of dogsledding, snowmobiling, and visiting reindeer. Saunas will be available to warm people up! All this wrapped around an effort to take really good winter landscape photographs.
Note no prior experience of snowshoeing or backcountry skiing is required.
Current itinerary Day 1 snowshoeing, Day 2 backcountry skiing, Day 3 snowshoeing, Day 4 Dogsledding or snowmobiling, Day 5 optional activities (additional costs depending on activity). The activities are subject to small changes due to weather and optimal photo conditions, for instance hunting for northern lights! All the while I will be available for photography coaching, my colleague and and expert guide Riitta Hänninen will be making sure we optimise on the photographic opportunities in the Seven Fells area.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in please get in touch with me directly for more information or download a pdf of our itinerary at this link.
