Experience the thrill of chasing the Midnight Sun! Learn to photograph the dramatic sunset colors in Denali with a maximum of 4 participants per group. This tour provides a personalized photography experience featuring prolonged "magic hour," alpenglow on the mountains, and spectacular cloudscapes. During mid-summer, sunset is close to midnight, dipping just below the horizon and coming back up again. Due to our far north location, the sunset colors last for an extended period of time, giving us ample opportunity for instruction and experimenting with different compositions and focal lengths. Our tour is designed to benefit all skill levels with any type of camera. Beginners will become familiar with their camera and learn techniques that will last a lifetime. Advanced photographers will enjoy the luxury of being driven to the best locations with the most dramatic lighting. Professional tripods and filters provided. Digital cameras with long zoom lens are available to rent, and you keep the memory card. Your guide will take you to the best locations given the current weather conditions, which may include, but are not limited to: The Denali Highway, Broad Pass, Windy Pass, Nenana River Canyon, Otto Lake, reflection ponds, and creeks.

Special Notes:

Maximum weight is 300 pounds. Weather can change quickly in Denali so bring an extra layer and a raincoat. Comfortable shoes are recommended - there may be some walking on variable terrain. This trip is suitable for all experience levels. Don't forget your camera, lenses, and extra battery!
