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!
This tour offers a full range of photo adventures. We set off from Abisko and head west alongside the magical Lake Torenträsk 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 and here on Wikipedia you can read about 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.

We cook and eat dinner together in our own BBQ hut alongside the hotel, with a beautiful view of Lake Torneträsk.
The dinner is a local Sami dish called 'souvas' with local vegetables. We cook in a very large dish in the center of the room over an open fire, in the old-fashioned Sami way. Souvas is made from lightly smoked reindeer meat and is delicious. There are vegetarian options, please let the Reception know if you would like one.
Experiencing sitting and eating beside the fire inside, with the doors open and the view over the lake to the hills on the other side of the glittering water is a wonderful to spend an evening.
Starting time 8pm. Duration about 2-3 hours. Includes food and soft drinks. You can bring your own alcohol if you wish.
Minimum 4 people
