We had this as part of our a la carte weekend holiday package. Chris our tutor was brilliant especially with me as a novice but I have got some great photos even though the weather wasn't brilliant. Well worth kneeling in the wind and snow for!! Would definitely recommend this whilst in Abisko

I know I speak for everyone in my group (10 great friends) when I say that our trip was amazing. LOL paid attention to every detail from start through finish. All our communications were answered in a timely fashion, and trust me, we had a lot of questions. Our tour was customized per our requests. Warm overalls and boots were... More

I'm so glad that I did a photography tour at the beginning of my stay in Abisko. My guide Chris's enthusiasm was definitely contagious and I left knowing so much more about Abisko, the Northern Lights, and exactly how to photograph the aurora. While the aurora wasn't particularly strong on the night of the tour, we all still got some... More

We took this trip while staying in Bjorkliden. Overalls were provided, if required. Our guide Chris was excellent. We had an initial briefing on use of camera and tripod and then handed out equipment, headamp and ice grippers. SD cards were installed in cameras. We walked to the location and then set up. Chris was very attentive to checking on... More

I cannot say enough about the extraordinary experience we had with Lights over Lapland. They go out of their way to provide you a unique and wonderful experience. We spent 5 days/4nights on their photography tour. Our guide was a superbly knowledgeable professional photographer. She was right there with advice, equipment, extra batteries and warm drinks. The provided cameras were... More

We had bad luck the night we booked this tour with the northern lights. Our photographer guide Chris and snowmobile expert Roger were so delightful, we have no regrets taking the tour. Chris gave us a great introduction to the aurora and Roger served us with the yummiest lingonberry tea, and lemon tart. Chris helped us click some fun shots... More

A wonderful way to view the lights!! Our guide , Sarah , was exceptional. She was very attentive to our needs, whether it was setting up the camera, advising us on picture taking, packing up or just making sure everyone was comfortable in the various locations we visited each night. We were with a very friendly group of people who... More

We went on the photography tour because the other Lights over Lapland tours were sold out for the night we were in Abisko. My husband and two teenage sons complained they did not want to spend the night taking photos but agreed to give it a shot (they did not have any other choice!) Well, everybody had the best time...
