Northern lights photo tours in Abisko and Kiruna

Experience and photograph Aurora borealis with a LapplandMedia & PhotoAdventures photographer. We offer all from evening tours to 6 day all inclusive Aurora and Sápmi photo courses. Travel with dogsled in Abisko National Park, visit the world famous Aurora Sky Station, drive your own reindeer sled through the forest with award winning Nutti Sámi Siida and much more. The owner Peter Rosén is one of Sweden’s most experienced nature photographer and is the photographer behind the book “Aurora Borealis in Lapland”. He has lived in Abisko for 16 years and has a background as an associate professor in environmental science and is now working full time as a photographer.  He or one of his professional photo guides gladly shares their intimate knowledge of the nature, natural phenomena, climate change, the Sámi culture and people who live here during the course. And of course we will help you with an in-depth photo course on how to capture aurora, stars, galaxies and the breathtaking midwinter landscape in the best possible way. On one of our multiday tour we will also go for wildlife photographing (eg moose and reindeers). We have held photo courses since 2001 and Peter’s book “Aurora Borealis in Lapland” is one of the great results of this long experience. All our courses are part of the Canon Photography School and thanks to Canon and Manfrotto, we can offer both amateur and professional SLR cameras, lenses and tripods, specially designed for Aurora photography – without any additional cost.

Our photo tours/courses cannot be found anywhere else. Our focus is utmost quality, which we obtain by devoting ourselves to small groups (much smaller than other players in the region). Learning the art of wilderness, night time and Aurora photography requires close tutoring, which is exactly what we offer. Small groups also makes moving to different locations not only easy, but definitely increases the chances of capturing the spellbinding northern lights.

We are proud to say that we are the only photo adventure company in Swedish Lapland with the highest possible rating from all guests on Tripadvisor and we are the only company in Swedish Lapland who can offer guided tours with proffessional photographers all year round. We have been running photo courses in Abisko and Swedish Lapland at more than 10 years longer than any other company in the area and we are the only company working with professional photographers coming from Swedish Lapland and we can therefore truly say that we have much better local knowledge about being up in the mountains, important not only for safety reasons but also for good images and stories about living in the Arctic. We welcome you to our own back garden! We are truly dedicated to ensuring our guest’s satisfaction, and are very proud of the fact we have had a 100% success rate on our multi-day tours. The fleeting nature of the northern lights means it is naturally difficult to guarantee you will see them, but to date we have been thrilled! This means that all previous guests participating on multi-day tours over the past four years (30 groups) have seen and captured the Aurora in beautiful environments.
