Finland & Norway Photo Tours

Finnature’s photography tours offer great insight into the wild northern nature

Large carnivores and interesting northern bird species in changing seasons make for unforgettable photography targets. Wolverines, King Eiders, Golden Eagles and northern Owls and Grouse are just some of the many highlights of Fennoscandian wildlife that can be captured on our tours. Finnature is one of the very first tour operators that arrange professional photography tours to Finland and in Varanger peninsula in Northern Norway – already since 1996! Our photography tours explore the special behavior of many birds and animals within wild landscapes of Finland and Northern Norway. Great variety of northern conditions – be it snow and the special winter light, purely magical midnight sun or vibrating autumn colors – gives a unique touch of the north to your photos.

High quality tours from photographers to photographers

Finnature’s photography tours to Finland and Northern Norway are designed for keen photographers by professional wildlife photographers Kaisa and Jari Peltomäki. Importantly, we always keep the group size small on our photography tours to give the best possibilities for amazing photos for each client. Moreover, we carefully choose the best sites and the best available photography hides, providing our clients the best opportunities for a successful photography experience. Both beginners and professional photographers alike can thus enjoy the great variety of tours we offer.

Finnature’s photography tours are led by top Finnature guides – many of which are keen photographers themselves and always happy to share their vast knowledge about Fennoscandian nature with everyone in the group.

Finland and Northern Norway are wonderful wildlife photography destinations and with our 25 years of experience in organizing wildlife tours, we will take you to the best locations in Finland and Northern Norway for wildlife photography!
