Embark on a PhotoPills Expedition to the Lofoten Islands to Photograph the Aurora Borealis, Winter’s Golden Light, the Moon (and the Arctic Landscapes)

By Rafael Pons

We’re going to the Lofoten Islands (Norway)...

Are you in?

Around the New Moon...

From March 10th to March 16th 2024, Laura Oppelt and Antoni Cladera (PhotoPills Masters) will be traveling across the Lofoten Islands to photograph the Aurora Borealis, the magical winter’s Golden Light and the Waxing Crescent Moon along with Arctic frozen landscapes, wild beaches, dramatic mountains and picturesque fishing villages...

Right around the March equinox, and right when the Sun is in the period of solar maximum, which means we will be more likely to see and photograph the dancing green lights of the Aurora!

Of course...

We’ll be taking photos all day long...

In March, the total Golden Hour time exceeds the 4 hours per day in Lofoten!


Can you imagine it?

To photograph the Aurora Borealis, the long lasting winter Golden Light and the thin Moon with massive snow-capped peaks, stunning rock formations, vibrant red cabins (known as rorbu), endless Arctic fjords, brave seascapes, remote beaches, lonely trees and the frozen landscapes...

We’re dreaming about it!

To achieve it, we’ll use the planning power of PhotoPills and the expert knowledge of Laura Oppelt and Antoni Cladera to always be at the right place at the right time.

Top secret: we have quite a few legendary photos planned already ;)

It can be done!

We did it in Iceland...

We did it in the Canadian Rockies...

We’ll do it again in Lofoten!

Who is in?

Applications will open very (very) soon. For now, please sign up for priority access with the attached application form telling us about yourself and what you’d like to learn in this exciting photography experience!

Do you want an example of how huge this will be?

This is a glimpse to what happened in the 2016 PhotoPills Expedition to Iceland. We had so many adventures and so much fun... We can’t wait for Lofoten!

But you don’t have to take our word for granted. Here’s what some PhotoPillers say about the PhotoPills adventures:

“I went to Iceland expecting to have the opportunity to photograph the marvelous landscape and master nightscapes. What I encountered was so much more – 14 kindred souls from across the globe who share a passion for photography. Together we expanded our creative boundaries, learned from one another and had an insane amount of fun in the process. I am confident that everyone came away from the experience a better photographer.”

“From the very moment the guys from PhotoPills announced the expedition to Iceland... I didn’t think it twice! I was using PhotoPills but not at its full capacity, so I had no better chance to learn from the creators of this amazing app. The experience was even more amazing than anything I could have imagined. In Iceland, I discovered a bunch of folks as crazy about photography as I am. I had a blast!

Photography is a continuous learning process, you always find something new that motivates you to improve. And this adventure made me improve more than I could imagine.”

"The PhotoPills guys know how to create a fantastic experience. They bring an infectiously fun energy and are always willing to drop some handy photography knowledge on you that you will take with you. You take their trip and you'll for sure have a good time, get some amazing pics and leave a better photographer."

“During my experience in Iceland I lived wonderful moments and had surprises that were beyond the expected. It completely exceeded my initial expectations! Sharing knowledge, experiences and ways of working and living photography with such a great group has been one of the most enriching life experiences I have ever had.

Who he said that learning and knowledge sharing can not be wonderfully fun?”

“I can't say enough about what a fantastic time I had during the PhotoPills Iceland photo tour! The guys from PhotoPills and Donal Boyd were so knowledgeable, accommodating, and especially lots of fun. Never a dull moment – nonstop action and shooting of amazing landscapes for 10 days. I came away with enough images and memories to last a lifetime!”
