Lofoten Islands - Photography workshop

From February 5th, 2024 to February 11th, 2024

lofoten islands photography workshop 2024

Explore the Lofoten Islands through your lens

This Lofoten Islands Photography Workshop will be a great opportunity to discover one of the best winter locations to explore as a photographer. With its fjord, rorbus (huts), sharp mountains plunging into the sea, and obviously the majestic northern lights, everything is present to represent the majesty of this beautiful arctic regions.

During this 2024 Lofoten workshop, I will bring you to all worthy locations the Island has to offer, and provide you with lots of insights to improve your photography skills and spend an incredible time in the company of fellow photographers.

This time of the year is perfect to enjoy long nights, rising the chances to see the Auroras, but also have amazing lights almost all day long with nearly back to back sunrises and sunsets.

All along the trip we will be driving around the island with only short walks to the spots, therefore no specific fitness level is required. 

Day 1

On the first day of this Lofoten Islands workshop, we will be waiting for all participants to arrive and then head to our accommodation. Depending on our time of arrival, we will make some stops along the road and start shooting great pictures. If the weather allows, we will be chasing the northern lights close to our accommodation.

Day 2 to 6


There won't be a fix schedule from day 2 to day 6 of this Lofoten Islands Photography Tour as we will plan our days depending on the weather forecasts for the next day. Don't worry, even with poor weather conditions, the Island remains beautiful to photograph. In any case, we will ensure to visit all major view points and more during those days.

A typical day will start with breakfast at our accommodation and then go directly to our sunrise location. It is important to have breakfast before departure, as the amazing and lasting light from the morning will keep us busy for hours shooting the wonders offered by the Lofoten Islands. 

We will be visiting all amazing locations on the islands including Reine, Hamnoy, Skagsanden, Uttakleiv, etc. 

We will generally have lunch on the go, or in a local restaurant if times allows, depending on where we are heading and how good will the light will be at our locations.

We will have a welcome dinner on the first or second evening, as well as a goodbye dinner on our last evening. On the other evenings, participants will need to prepare their own dinner. A stop at a local supermarket will be made, when necessary, to buy some supplies.

The days will be punctuated by chasing the Auroras to top the overall experience.

During the week, a post treatment session and a group photo review will be held, as well as an individual photography coaching session for each participant.

On the best nights, auroras in the Lofoten Islands can last long, and stopping photographing them might be difficult, and we won't stop doing so as long the group gets tired of it (which is unlikely). However, this can render the workshop schedule difficult and exhausting, therefore participants will be free to rest whenever they feel the need for it.

Day 7

This will be the end of this Lofoten Island photography workshop, and this will be the day workshop participants will head back to their home country.

After a last sunrise on the beautiful Lofoten Islands, the group will be brough to the Airport in Leknes and we will leave each other after a warm goodbye.

Drop off at any other locations can be organized according to feasibility.

Good to know about Norway and the Lofoten

  • Currency: the national currency of Norway in the Norwegian krone 

  • Means of payment: In the Lofoten you can pay everywhere with your credit card even for small amounts. Wearing cash is therefore not necessary. Having an international credit card such as Revolut can be helpful to limit fees and enjoy a decent exchange rate.

  • Electricity: Norway uses the Europlug (Type C & F), which has two round plugs. If you are travelling from the US you will certainly need an adaptor.

  • Internet: Wi-Fi will be available in our accommodation, most places offer internet and 4G is available in most places on the island. If travelling from Europe, Norway is likely to be included in your data roaming. Therefore you'll have internet in most places. For people outside Europe, either looking for a package can be done or a SIM cards can be bought in some stores. In any case, the use of the smartphone will be limited as I will ensure to keep you busy taking pictures.

Your Guide

  • Hi there, I am Rémi Bergougnoux, a French landscape photographer with extensive knowledge over various topics in landscape photography. 

  • I let behind my 9 to 5 corporate job in the course of 2021 before heading for a year in Latin America, exploring, and photographing this beautiful continent. While being back in Europe in the course of 2022, I decided to bring my photography to the next level, and take the chance to share my knowledge with other passionate photographer. Offering workshops came naturally to me given my knowledge of travelling, photography and desire to share my passion.

  • Besides workshops, I am also writing articles for magazines, writing photography guides, and creating YouTube video tutorials about landscape photography across Europe.

  • I explored the Lofoten Islands twice, a first time to discover it in 2020, and a second time when I spent a whole winter in 2023 exploring that part as well as the beautiful Senja Islands located further north.

  • To this day, I know exactly what to expect on the Island, whether we are talking about light or weather, and therefore will be able to guide you through the Island in order to catch the best possible photographs.
