Early season northern light photo-hunt

 Learning Aurora borealis photo without freezing

This is your chance to experience the Northern Lights – Aurora borealis – without winter freezing degrees. From central Piteå you will be transferred to the coast of Swedish Lapland and the Archipelago of Piteå. Here you meet your guide at the starting point for a short forest walk to the sky view point on top of a hill. Here you will have a splendid view of the coastal Archipelago of Piteå and the surrounding boreal forest. Above you the sparkling northern sky awaits the interpretation from your guide. If the sun conditions are right, we might experience the great mystery of the north - the phenomenon of the Aurora borealis. While waiting for the dance in the sky to start, we will immerse in the quietness of this northern place, and absorb the stars above us, learning about the planets and start constellations and their mythology. Your guide will also introduce you in astro-photography and northern-light photography, and you will have the opportunity to take picture with a professional camera, or use your own camera. An open camp fire invites you with warm drinks and snacks with tastes of the Northern Light. If we have strong Northern Lights, we might go to other sky view places at the water front to get the northern light reflection in the sea.
