DAYS 2 THRU 5 (2nd – 5th February)
And now the real fun begins! We will make the journey down to Leknes, which will be our base for the next 3 nights. The drive itself is a good 3.5-4 hours, but don’t worry, we will make many stops along the way to snap a few photos and have lunch! Trust me, there will much to photograph as we make our way to Leknes!
Once we arrive, we will check into our accommodation, which will be an experience in itself, as we’re actually staying in some of these iconic red cabins! Not only will we call these red cabins home for the next 3 nights, we will also be located right on the water with our own balconies, where we can unwind and take in the views that surround us!
This trip will not have a set agenda and will be planned on the go depending on the weather. Leknes is perfect place for this, as we are in arms reach to many different locations and arctic beaches. In the evenings we will also need to remain as flexible as possible to chase the northern lights! Clear skies come and go, so we need to be ready to strike when the time comes. To sum up our stay in Leknes, we will chase sunrises, sunsets, and hunt the northern lights by night! If we have cloudy / snowy weather, no worries, we will create moody and dramatic images!
On the 5th we will check out and move on to our next location, the “Reine” region, which is only about an hour or so drive away. We will once again be staying in iconic waterfront red cabins, which will be our new base for the next 2 nights. From here we have dinner and set off for an evening chasing the northern lights!
