What is the arctic light?

Midnight sun makes the light in summer spectacular for photography. In the far north of Lapland one can experience more than two months of nightless night. This is when the sun shines around the clock with hours and hours of magical golden glow – the arctic light.

The event is meant for anyone who shares the passion for outdoor life, photography and story-telling through social media – regardless how beginner or advanced one feels as a photographer. All the workshops are held by professional nature photographers. The lead instructor is photographer and AD Harri Tarvainen, a specialist in outdoor and action photography.
