Capture the arctic nature. Learn to photograph nature and wildlife with Scandinavian Sami Photoadventures.
Photograph wild animals and beautiful landscapes during a day outdoors. The tour begins at Icehotel where a photo guide from Scandinavian Sami Photoadventures picks you up. Together you take a minivan out in nature and start to familiarize yourself with the camera and practice taking pictures. When you feel comfortable with the camera you head out in search of exciting objects to photograph.

The Northernmost part of Sweden has eight seasons and you choose the photo object depending on weather and time of year. Nature is filled with Arctic animals like moose, reindeer, and birds, and your guide will help you capture them and the wonderful surroundings on camera. The tour ends with a cup of coffee or tea served by an open fire in the wilderness before returning to Icehotel.
