Autumn season 2022
The big event in autumn is the moose rut. We see a lot of moose on our tours in Vesterålen at the time. Good chances for big bulls and if we're lucky we find some challenging each other. And of course there are good chances for other animals as well, let us know what you want to see! From 1. september we are starting up the Northern Lights tours again in Vesterålen. We can start the tour from where you’re staying if you are in Sortland, or other places but the price might change depending on where you want to go from. If you contact us, we will recommend the best time, length and place to start from for most close-up encounters. But some of the best places is only available on the 3, 4 or 6 hours tours during the rut. We highly recommend the 4 hour tour.
You can read more about the Moose safari here.
On all our tours you will receive photos from the tour that the guide takes, and videos on the Northern Lights tours, check out more about the Northern Lights tours here.
Our owl photography tours runs mainly from 1. may - 15. august. We highly recommend these between 19. may and 24. july. These tours is at evening, night and early morning. There is chances after 15. august, ask us about the chances!
Note: All wildlife tours can be done at day. But the chances for close-up encounters and finding animals is less at day.
We have a wildlifephotohide located on the border between Vesterålen and Lofoten. The hide has space for three photographers with one camera each. The hide has a bed and toilet. There is a 15-20min medium walk to the hide from the road, so you should have good boots and warm clothes for spring, winter and autumn. We recommend you to have your gear fully charged.
