Lofoten Islands Norway Photo Workshop with Colby Brown

NORWAY WINTER WONDERLAND 2017

Come join me as we explore one of the most amazing winter photography locations on the planet, Norway’s own Lofoten Islands. Located above the arctic circle, these islands are home to some of the most spectacular seascapes in Europe. Additionally, because of its latitude, you have a greater chance to see the Northern Lights here than most places on the planet. During our 7 day adventure, we will split our focus between the famous town of Reine and the mountainous beaches of Leknes. This will put your right at the heart of some of the most incredible photographic location in the world!

Hiking in the Lofoten Islands of Norway in Winter
Photographer's exploring the Lofoten Islands of Norway

Our photo adventure in the Lofoten Islands will start in the town of Leknes. There are multiple daily flights from Oslo to the Leknes Airport (LKN), giving you plenty of options at your disposal. From here we will drive straight to the town of Reine to spend the next three days photographing this gorgeous seaside town. From the famous red rorbuer cabins, to the Hamnoy bridge overlooking Reine, to the beautiful seascapes in the surrounding area…there is a lot of photographic opportunities to take advantage of.

Following our time in Reine, we will head to Leknes, home of many frozen lakes and a number of beaches that look incredible caked in snow. From the round bouldering rocks of Unstad to the dramatic seascapes of Uttakliev to the twin wonderful beaches of Haukland, we will have our hands full. And if that wasn’t enough, there are beaches, fjords, lookouts, and towns in between Leknes and Reine, allowing us to easily go back and forth to find the right spot during the right conditions every time.
