USEFUL INFORMATION

After the registration you will receive by email the Travel Program and all useful information.
You will also be placed in a reserved group on Facebook where you can talk with the teachers to prepare yourself for the trip.

Discover the most useful information on our Photo Tour by clicking on the sections below:

A minimum dose of adaptability is required for this trip, given the climatic conditions and the types of accommodation that the place offers.
We will spend 3 nights in rorbus, the characteristic and welcoming red houses once used by the fishermen of the place and now restructured, which are usually very appreciated by the participants of this Journey.
The rooms in the rorbu are composed of 2 single bunk beds and one bathroom per apartment, so every 4 people.
If you think that sleeping in a bunk bed can cause you problems, contact us and we will find the best solution for you.
Since restaurants are practically non-existent, sometimes we will cook and eat in rorbus, which are equipped with full kitchens.
Our guides will take care of cooking some typical dishes of Italian cuisine, but each participant will be free to cook what they prefer according to their tastes.
Those who do not want to cook or eat in the rorbu can go to the restaurant, when present in the surroundings.

If you do not have companions and do not choose a single (it carries a surcharge and is not always available), you can share the room with one of the other participants.

Contact us if you want more information on this aspect of the trip.

Activity Level: Easy – Short walks over mostly level ground – Conditions in Lofoten Islands can be inhospitable which may increase the difficulty.

Participation in this Photographic Tour is recommended for those who already have a minimum basic preparation, ie those who know how to shoot in Manual mode, are familiar with the use of ISO, timing and aperture, has a good knowledge of the camera menu.
Having these notions will allow you to take advantage of all the photographic opportunities that will arise and to better assimilate all the intermediate and advanced concepts that our teachers will explain to you.
A few weeks before the trip you will receive our exclusive Teaching Preparation Manual to begin learning new concepts, shooting techniques and post-production even before the trip and you will have exclusive access to our video post-production tutorials with Lightroom and Photoshop .
The very limited number of participants enables continuous interaction with the teachers, who can help and advise you at any time, but we cannot guarantee that you will have the opportunity to explain the basics of photography.

Not sure if this photo trip is right for you? Contact us and talk directly with the teachers of the Workshop.

You can participate with any brand of camera (Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, etc.): despite being Nikon School, in almost all of our Workshops there are also participants with other camera brands, so our teachers will be perfectly able to help you with your camera settings.

To participate in the Workshop the following equipment is required:

  • SLR or mirrorless camera (any make and model)
  • Any lens
  • Tripod
  • Remote control / Remote shooting
  • 1-2 spare batteries
  • Enough memory cards to hold at least 1500 photos (or a notebook to download the photos, but it is better to have enough cards for the whole trip)

Before departure we will send you an email with all the useful information about the most suitable equipment for this trip and our buying guides for tripods and filters, which will help you understand if it is appropriate to improve the your photographic kit. If you don’t want to wait, you can immediately get the guides by clicking on the banner at the bottom of this page.

Let’s try to debunk a myth: the climate on the Lofoten islands is less hostile than one might imagine.
The minimum temperature recorded in 2009 was just -13.1 ° C and generally in winter the minimum is around zero.
With winter clothing (eg a ski suit) you will have no problem facing the cold or wind that we will encounter in this period in the areas visited.

Before departure we will send you an email with lots of detailed information on the most suitable clothing and accessories for this trip.

Since we will load all the luggage in the cars, it is important to limit the size of the luggage as much as possible, also in consideration of the short duration of the trip.
We recommend using a suitcase or duffel bag of about 100 liters of capacity (about 80 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm), in addition to the photo backpack.

Valid Passport with at least 2 blank pages. Tourist VISA not required for stays under 90 days. We advise to check your own country immigration laws to ensure you have the right to travel to Norway.

Wonderful Lofoten Islands. An exciting journey in the North, among fjords, mountains, snow, ice and unforgettable auroras. Careful, precise and absolutely perfect organization allowed us to photograph all the best locations. Vista guides, our teachers / tutors / companions / friends always available for information, advice, photographic support and general organization.
An unforgettable journey.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

Incredible journey! One thing is certain: I will never forget these 7 days spent in Lofoten Islands with the Vista staff. The weather was kind to us; 5 nights out of 7 we were able to witness the incredible phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis (on 3 occasions the phenomenon was very intense), an incredible snowfall preceded our arrival making the landscape even more enchanted, exceptional light situations accompanied dawns and sunsets. Well what about Vista guides? It is the 4th time that I have hung out with them and they are confirmed by availability, seriousness, preparation and professionalism. They are ready for any unforeseen eventuality or circumstance which ensures the success of their trips / workshops. In short, all the right ingredients to have a fantastic experience! I can’t help but thank them and think – Next photo tour with Vista.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

This was my second journey with Vista and what can i say, a trip beyond expectations. Vista guides’s preparation and in-depth knowledge of the area allowed us to immortalise dawns and sunsets in the best locations. The professionalism of both allowed us to improve our photographic skills by refining our shooting techniques and post production.
The trip was structured to enable us to shoot at the best moments of the day, nothing was left to chance.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

This was my first photographic journey with Vista. I can only say that it will not be the last because I found in Gabriele Lorenzini competence, preparation, availability and passion, in the organization effective in the choice of the structures and in the solutions of travel / transport, very nice companions of adventure, all in a natural setting nothing short of magical. In this regard, in fact, we add the fantastic locations chosen by Gabriele for the “daytime” sessions that more than compensated for that bit of bad luck that did not allow us to fully enjoy the spectacle of the northern lights. In summary, a perfect journey.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

Simply perfect! Caught 5 aurora out of 7 (and it’s professionalism, not luck), adaptation of the programs according to the climatic conditions, according to the needs of the group, great knowledge of the places … in short, a just cocktail not to return empty handed.
And now it’s time to start thinking – Next appointment …

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

Fantastic experience from every point of view! First photographic journey with Vista definitely worth repeating! Organization with attention to detail and great competence and professionalism of Vista guides, always ready and willing to handle any aspect! Both the locations and all the movements have been chosen with great care and attention, making them always perfect places for the needs of the moment! A great experience that remains impressed both by the strong passion for photography transmitted by teachers and by the perfection of the whole organization itself!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

After Iceland seeing the Lofoten Islands was a must … and as always the organization of Vista has not disappointed: impeccable.
The locations proposed for photographing sunrises, sunsets and dawns have been nothing short of spectacular.
The ever-present support of the two professors Vista guides makes you feel comfortable that you will be able to bring home some great shots. The group turned out to be excellent, even if heterogeneous, all of them always ready to send a message and to dispense useful advice.
See you soon … maybe in Lapland? 😉

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

Very well organized trip. Seen incredibly beautiful landscapes and above all in 7 days. I could watch 5 auroras! Of which three incredibly beautiful and exciting! That magic of nature, the dawn, which must be seen at least once in life.
Vista guides di Vista very kind and helpful.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

For the third time I faced the journey with Vista guides, great friends, great traveling companions!
And what I tell you to do … it was all magnificent, impeccable as always by the organization until the return!
In life you always have to make the right choices: I finally found those who take me to the most beautiful places in the world and photograph the best sunrises, the best sunsets and the best auroras!
Happy to be able to share my emotions with Vista!
P.S. I saw 6 auroras in 6 days: Vista brings so much luck!
A hug to everyone … see you at the next trip!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

A very positive experience, Gabriele was always kind and helpful in helping each of us. Lovely places and despite the not always favorable weather conditions, I managed to take home some beautiful shots, thanks above all to the locations chosen by Gabriele from time to time. Overall satisfied!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

I recommend to all photography lovers the team of Vista, Vista guides are great professionals and exquisite people, always available to give advice and improve the technique and sensitivity in the photo shoot. In the specific course, in the face of obvious meteorological adversities, however, 4 were made to offer us the possibility of taking photographs at any time available in the best scenarios that the islands can offer.
One thing is for sure, even if Bologna is 300km away from my house, any future course I will attend will be solely with Vista! thanks Vista guides !!!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Lofoten tour

Vista is now for me a synonym of guarantee. The organization of the stages is always apt to optimize the times, always arriving well in advance in the locations, bringing out even more the incredible landscape and the natural wonders that the Lofoten Islands offer. A particular mention goes to Vista guides who are constantly present both before and during the trip and ready to help us in any eventuality.

Unique experience!! Seeing the aurora borealis has always been a dream of mine, a big thank you goes to Vista guides who with their preparation and experience have taught me to photograph it at its best !!!

Fabulous trip, unforgettable and to be redone.
All locations are chosen with a care that reveals the passion for photography of Vista guides, as well as the meticulousness that lies behind the organization of the whole trip. The very choice of the locations, then, adapts to the light conditions allowing us to make the most of every moment.
Even the accommodations are carefully selected: we slept almost every night in the characteristic red fishermen’s houses, in a splendid environment.
The team of Vista, then, is always available whether it is a board during shooting or a laugh.
At the top, the didactic material shared before the trip and the support and the review of the photographs upon return from the trip itself. You learn so much.

A trip with Vista guides in these countries is always a guarantee of organization and efficiency, despite the fact that overall the weather has not been splendid, in the end we have succeeded, given the results, in producing good and some excellent shots. So the journey was a success in every sense. The brilliant and great fun comrades and this said to me that by now I am always the oldest of the group. Thank you all.

The experience I had on the Lofoten Islands will remain inside me forever. Breathtaking landscapes between sunrise and sunset. In the evening then it is forbidden to sleep because there is a show unique in the world, the aurora borealis! A word to summarize everything? FANTASTIC

We met Gabriele last year on a beautiful trip to Morocco where we appreciated his organization and professionalism (as well as his great sympathy!). We wanted to replicate this year by going to Lofoten to hunt for Northern Lights and Northern Lights. Thanks to the careful guidance of Vista guides, we were able to improve our landscape photography techniques and live a fantastic experience! Excellent organization, doc location, fun company.

Beautiful experience. I love this type of travel focused on photography, because they allow you to live a unique experience, to appreciate the landscape in a more refined way, capturing its variations and nuances with different light conditions. Vista guides are very good and always available for any question on photography. To do for all lovers of photography and spectacular landscapes.

Even from a non-habitual landscape photo, I was able to better appreciate the natural corners these islands offer. Spectacular and sophisticated locations that offer many photographic opportunities even in unfavorable light conditions then the magic of aurora does the rest. Tutors who are very prepared, always attentive to the needs of everyone with their own different bases, without never being too heavy, wide-ranging photographic sessions especially when the conditions have deserved.
Beautiful is the group that has formed that in addition to the shots has shared funny moments and great collaboration.

Like Iceland, Norway, and especially the Lofoten Islands, know how to “bewitch” the photographer’s eye, offering insights, glimpses and endless shooting possibilities. The organization was excellent, as was the company … A little less the weather, despite which we were able to capture the beautiful Norwegian landscapes and the Northern Lights and still bring good memories and good photos. Until next time! =)

My expectations were fully satisfied, the aurora, which was the main reason why I decided to make this trip, was shown for two consecutive nights, breathtaking views and organization helped make the week special, without forgetting the availability that Vista guides have shown as usual.

This is the second photographic journey with Vista, as well as some photographic workshops in Italy, in which I had the chance to be at the side of Vista guides, the professional photographers protagonists of this trip.
Also this time it turned out to be a wonderful experience in all respects. Their availability and professionalism, their advice have allowed me to learn a lot and improve my landscape photographs more and more.
To this we add also the punctual knowledge of the places, of the possible alternatives, the precise organization of the whole and not least the sympathy, for which my judgment can only be enthusiast.
Good guys. Until next time! In a few months ?

After 2 workshops in Italy and a photographic journey abroad (Lofoten Islands) the time has come to express an opinion on Vista and in particular on their guides. Certainly I will not go looking for alternatives for the next photographic trips, given that for me they are now synonymous with guarantee. My trust has earned them in the field because besides being very technically prepared and organizing the various shooting sessions (the idea of reserve is never lacking) they are also very nice, managing to create a climate of absolute relaxation and relaxation. (we really have fun). They are also lucky, at least as far as I’m concerned, since 6 nights and 6 auroras are the top me for me
Come on guys …… see you soon.

Interesting journey, the place is very photogenic, the Lofoten are a great subject with many ideas for landscape photos, the tutors are prepared and always available to give tips given their knowledge and skills. The group travel formula allows you to get to know many people with common interests.

… Journey to make.
What can I add two “perfect companions”, always present and dispensers of advice and suggestions. The aurora can be photographed even by newbies this Workshop proves it and take fantastic photos home.
… and then with a nice group.
