The spectacular scenery that greets us as we head into Norway makes this tour something truly special. Mountains stand majestically up all around the fjords and lakes and the sea never fully freezes. We may even see eagles, orcas and dolphins, though we can't guarantee it!
Our Fjords photo tour offers a full range of photo adventures. We set off from Abisko and head west alongside the magical Lake Torneträsk in our minibuses, crossing the border into Norway at Riksgränsen.
During the trip we stop at some of the beautiful and historically significant places along the way and the guide will tell you about the area and history. The landscape changes dramatically as we had towards the fjords. Once we get to the village of Bjerkvik, we stop somewhere for you to buy lunch.
From Bjerkvik, we head north to Grovfjord, a village beside the Grov fjord where the fjord is at its narrowest. The Moelva and Gårdselva rivers flow down into the fjord at this point.
Once we have taking our fill of wonderful photographs, we set off to the east to see and stop at the 23-km (14 mile) long Gratangen fjord. There are battlegrounds from WW2 along the whole route, including the Battle of Gratangen.
Each fjord is equally but differently beautiful.
Do not worry if you have never used camera before, our professional photographers will quickly teach you the skills for taking picture and they will be there to take amazing photos with and of you! Those memories and photos will last a lifetime.
This tour is available most days in the winter. Lunch is not included but we stop at a café or you can bring food with you. The tour takes 5 hours and starts at 10:00. The tour is by minibus in our own tour buses and clothing should be suitable for being out in the weather but not much walking.

What advice would you like to give guests coming to photograph in Abisko?
"The most complicated aspect of night photography, from my experience, is the framing of photograph. Getting to know the place you want to photograph from during the daytime helps for when it is dark. I recommend going out during daylight hours and taking some test photos, looking for good angles to photograph from. That prepares you for the nighttime, giving you a good understanding of the area you're going to.
My advice is to have patience! Do not be impatient and instead enjoy the moment. When we see the northern lights, we all want to photograph it and have the best photos but try to stop for a moment and enjoy the experience. Wild animals are always difficult to photograph as you cannot predict their behavior or get too close so with patience and good planning you can get impressive photos.
Finally, don't forget to bring warm clothes! It's quite cold up here in the winter :)"
