Are you fascinated by the northern lights? The Aurora 101 Photography Evening at the Aurora Spirit Distillery provides the perfect introduction to a northern lights holiday.

Following a local tapas dinner, you’ll be taken through a 2 hour course on the northern lights. Get the facts behind the magic as well as the mythology before learning how to take amazing photos of the aurora. To top the night off there’s a tasting of some locally produced drinks and transfers on the stunning route to and from Tromsø.

The distillery sits east of the Lyngen Alps, in the middle of the Aurora belt, offering some of the best chances of seeing the northern lights in Norway. If the northern lights appear at any time during your transfers or course you can head outside and soak it up.

Det vi skal gjøre

We’ll start off the evening with a local tapas platter at the world’s northernmost distillery, Aurora Spirit. You will be served local Lyngen shrimp, whisky-smoked salmon, wild goat salami, goat cheese, potato salad, scrambled eggs, bread and coffee – all part of the “Taste of Lyngen” meal. Then we’ll be off to the main part of the evening.

In the Aurora 101 course, we will teach you how and when the Aurora Borealis occurs, how to maximize your chances of spotting it, and give you an insight into the mythical history behind it.

To make it even better, we have included a Bivrost tasting, and a Northern Lights photography course so you know how to capture your very own shots.

There are many photographic “hot spots” to be found, with endless opportunities to experience the stunning Aurora. You will learn how to take amazing photographs of the Northern Lights over the Lyngen Alps and reflected in the Lyngen Fjord. We will give you all the best tools possible for your future expeditions.

At 22:00, we will end the course and take you back to Tromsø at about 23:30.
