What to Wear
Base layer: thermal underwear, made from merino wool or synthetic fabric, to keep your body warm and dry.
Mid layer: fleece or softshell jacket to insulate your body and trap warmth.
Outer layer: waterproof and windproof jacket and pants to protect you from the harsh weather conditions.
Warm jacket: a down or synthetic insulated jacket to keep you warm during extended periods of time outside.
Warm hat and gloves: to protect your head, ears, and hands from the cold and wind.
Warm, waterproof boots: with a thick sole and insulation to protect your feet from the cold and snow.
Neck gaiter or scarf: to protect your neck and face from the cold and wind.
Crampons: the use of crampons is highly recommended, we are in the Arctic Circle and often the surfaces will be covered by ice.
Remember to dress in layers, so that you can easily adjust your clothing according to your activity level and the temperature.
What to Bring
DSLR or Mirrorless camera
Lenses: The recommended lens for this trip is a wide-angle lens such as a 16-35mm or similar, which will be perfect for capturing stunning landscape shots. A telephoto lens (200mm or more) is also recommended to capture wildlife (there are a lot of sea eagles in the area) and create images with a sense of scale, such as comparing the size of the mountains to the small, picturesque houses of Lofoten. A regular lens (between 24 and 70 mm) is always useful.
Tripod: A sturdy tripod is necessary for sharp and steady shots as we will face the Arctic winds.
Extra batteries: It's going to be cold and your batteries will run out of juice quickly. Better to have some spare batteries with you.
Spare Memory Cards: A sufficient number of memory cards is crucial, so you don't miss any opportunities or run out of storage space during our photo sessions.
Headlamp: is essential when photographing in low light situations or at night, providing hands-free lighting for easy camera operation and movement.
A plastic cover or other protective gear can shield the camera from rain, snow, or other adverse weather conditions that may occur during our adventure.
Laptop with Lightroom or Photoshop
External Hard Drive for backup: better safe than sorry!
ND and polarisers filters will be useful as we are visiting a coastal area. They will help you to set the proper shutter speed and shaping the waves in the way you want for your composition.
