DAY 1 & 2
Pick up time is no later than 11am at Evenes Airport (or any nearby accommodation), then it’s time to begin our drive towards our first location (approx 1.30h). After an easy hike we’ll reach our first campsite and shoot sunset from one of the locations nearby: the group can choose to join either a 400 or a 600m ascent. Both lead to breathtaking viewpoints.
On day 2 wake up early for our sunrise shooting and after breakfast ready to hike down to the car and drive to our next location. We’ll stop at a cafe for our post-processing class, then at the supermarket and then drive to our next campsite.
After another hike (approx 45min) we’ll reach our spot for the night and the sunset and sunrise shooting, located near with a view over Segla.
After sunrise and a recharging breakfast, we’ll hike down again and have another post-processing class at a cafe nearby.
It’s then time for a scenic drive along the fjords to reach our next campsite where will shoot sunset and sunrise from.
DAY 4 & 5
On day 4 we’ll hike for about 45min to reach our next campsite, where we’ll spend also night 5. We’ll put our tents right underneath the best viewpoint in Senja and shoot sunrise and sunset from the summit (approx 40min hike).
After sunrise we’ll hike down to the cars and begin another scenic drive. While the hiking part is over, we’ll have plenty of time to visit some amazing locations along the road.
