Our Norway Northern Lights Photography Tour and Whale Watching Excursion spans seven days, with some periods giving you time to explore the island’s sites and culture.
On nights with good conditions for Aurora borealis, you will head out to some remote locations.

The team use large stable boats with the open one been a RIB Unlimited 37 foot with a top speed of 50 knots. Also, they use a Princess 50 for a more comfortable experience.
The Norway Northern Lights Photography Tour is centered on (or around) the beautiful, idyllic island of Senja, referred to as “the fairytale island of Senja.” This is Norway’s second largest island.
On the Norway Northern Lights Photography Tour of Senja, you can indulge the mountains, the seas, the beaches, and the fishing villages with help from your guide. Nature and dramatic landscape abounds in Senja. The fairy-tale island is noted for its seasonal phenomenon that are the Midnight Sun and Northern Lights. The Polar Night and Arctic light are indeed spectacular here too. From mountain peaks to coast, Senja offer boundless nature. Travelers who book the Norway Northern Lights Photography Tour are also keen on enjoying many facets of the island’s nature attractions. If you are into hiking, you may want to try out the trails of Ånderdalen National Park.
Mefjord Brygge, Mefjordvær, is the hotel where you will most likely be staying during your Norway Northern Lights Photography Tour and Whale Watching Excursion. Here, you will be so close to the sea, literally your balcony is the dock, which means that you are just meters from the ocean.
Depending on the weather situation, you depart to the sea in the morning hours to observe and photograph the orcas and humpback whales. A real highlight is snorkeling with orcas and humpback whales.
Snorkeling equipment and snorkeling suits are not provided and have to be brought from home.
At this locale, a movie was made, recently, together with BBC for the production Blue Planet Ocean. Feeding orcas in schools, among other sea creatures were filmed. It turned out that the visibility range are surprisingly good here.
If the sea is too stormy you will search for birds, elks and reindeer by car. Of course, you will stops for landscape photography along the way.
Our photographer is always around to talk with. As well, some late afternoons, we do photo courses, which you can partake in.
