Weather in Northern Norway can be rough, therefore we need a flexible itinerary to be able to change plans according to weather conditions. If we have days with a lot of wind we may not be able to reach out to the bird cliff of Hornøya, but we still have boat available so we can do photography sessions with King and Steller Eider from the sheltered harbor. We also have available cars taking us around to see and photograph the amazing arctic landscape in Varanger. During the evenings we will keep a close look at the sky for the aurora borealis, the northern lights.
