Photography trip to Pallas National Park 1.-3.3.2019

ONLY FEW SPOTS AVAILABLE!!

March is a perfect time to explore the Finnish Lapland. The contrast between night and day is breathtaking. Longer daylight offers a beautiful sunshine and the nights are filled with crystal clear starry skies with a good possibility of Northern lights. Join us for a weekend and learn about photography, nature and winter hiking. We cannot guarantee the Northern Lights but we will have our fingers crossed for them.

We are sleeping in wilderness hut and hiking in snowy conditions. The trip is starting from Hotel Vuontispirtti 90 kilometers (1h17min) from Kittilä airport. Our group will leave from the hotel on Friday 1st of March by snowshoes or back-country skies towards The National Park. Feel free to ask any additional information or places to rent some gear.

Come and learn about shooting the night sky and get inspired by other like-minded people. We will have a basic lecture and conversations about photography inside in a wilderness hut but please keep on your mind that no electronic devices are available.

For participating the trip, you must be a member of Partioaitta 365 club. Joining the club is free and doesn’t obligate you to anything.  Members get exclusive offers and join an active community. We can help you join the club since the information is in Finnish.

The main language of the trip is Finnish but as we got so many requests of this trip in English we decided to make it 2-language. I hope you don’t mind us talking in Finnish at some points but we’ll make sure everything is translated in English all the time. Most likely we will talk in English over the entire weekend.
