Is there any snow on October?

You’ll never know J It might be possible to even have snow on that time, but usually it takes a bit longer to get snow on the ground in Northern part of Finland.

How about Auroras/Northern Lights, pretty please?!?!

We really wish to have those. We’ve made our best and tried to order those but Lord Weather wasn´t able to tell yet 😉

What kind of accommodation types do you offer?

All accommodation types are shared. There are going to be rooms for 2persons and 4-6persons. We are going to listen participants wishes for accommodation plans so we could offer you the best possible room mate for your trip.

Can I go to sauna or wild swimming?

Absolutely yes!!! It´s even more than recommended to experience sauna and have a swim in freezing Torne river.

Do I need to arrange my own breakfast, lunch or dinner?

No you don´t. We have taken care of foods and beverages. Everyday we are offering you breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening meal + some snacks and coffee between lessons and photo shootings.

Is there only lessons or are we going to have some photoshootings?

We are making our best to have at least one photography session a day. Of course you are able to explore beautiful landscapes by your own. If there is possibility to see Auroras/Northern Lights, we might even arrange a photoshooting in a best possible place to capture it.
