Nightless Night – Outdoor Photography Workshop takes place on the last weekend of June 2019 around Lemmenjoki area.
Welcome to the far North of Finnish Lapland! The home base for this event is Hotel Korpikartano in a small reindeer herding village called Menesjärvi, right by Lemmenjoki National Park. Lemmenjoki is the largest national park in Finland, as well as one of the largest roadless and uninhabited forest wildernesses in Europe. Inari village, the centre of Sámi culture in Lapland, is only 30 minutes drive away.
The program will take you through the very best photography locations that the vast wilderness of Lemmenjoki area has to offer. Experience the endless daylight and the pristine wilderness, that bathes in the light of midnight sun for over two months during the summer. And the best part, with a group of people that share the same passion as you do!
