January 18th to 24th January 2017 - 6 Day Adventure
Short break in Svalbard for Northern Lights
If you're short on time but have always dreamt of seeing and photographing the Northern Lights then this adventures is for you. Flights from London to the wild landscape of Svalbard makes a short break possible, with five nights based in Longyearbyen.
Photographing the Aurora Borealis
Your photography tutor - Chris Coe - will show you how to photograph the Northern Lights and also give you tuition in how to photograph the landscapes, low light photography and painting with light. He and his assistant, Hazel, will also be on hand to give you individual tuition as and when you want it.
This is wild country and there are more polar bears on the Svalbard than there are people. January is the middle of winter and the almost continual darkness gives a great chance of seeing the sky light up.
The half light is also magical, giving us plenty of opportunity to photograph the winter landscape and the to explore Svalbard by dog sled and snowmobile.
