Winter landscapes of Riisitunturi -photo excursion

Capture unique landscapes with your own mobile phone with an experienced nature photography guide!

The magical snow-rimed trees “tykky” enchants the winter hiker and gives the nature photographer countless opportunities to capture these iconic landscapes into stylish nature pictures. Guided by the nature photography guide, you will find new angles to record this popular destination and you will be left with fond memories of your winter vacation.

On the trip, we snowshoe for a few kilometers on the slopes of Riisitunturi, where we have the opportunity to capture memorable landscapes with our own mobile phone or camera. The guide is a nature photography professional who tells you about the nature and photography and assists to improve photography skills, such as composition, different angles, or camera settings according to the wishes of the people.

As well, we have a delicious picnic lunch and coffee, tea or hot chocolate at the “Tykky” cafe or outside in the fresh air.

Our group is small from 3 to 7 people, so a guide has a good possibility to assist everyone in the group during the excursion. The excursion, including transportation with a normal car or minibus, takes about 8 hours with some kilometers of walking, so excursion required good physical condition.

Excursions start at different hours, depending on light conditions, so we will let you know after reservations, what time your excursions start and end.
