Painting Holiday in Norway

Northern Lights

With Karen Pearson

07 to 12 January 2021

Per person sharing from: £1,570

Paint the extraordinary colours of Norway in January. Gazing upon luminous green bands of light as they flicker, dance and roll across the sky is a phenomenal experience. Sometimes the lights can be seen several times during an evening. It is quite simply breath-taking…

Dress warmly for sketching walks as we explore the arctic landscape here with its dramatically rocky coastline scattered with quaint wooden fishing huts and secluded villages, panoramic views of the icy ocean and towering snowy fjords. This is a magical time of year when the white landscape is bathed by the soft colours of the Polar Night – the sky is backlit with hues of pink and orange and shadows take on shades of deep blue, violet and purple. We will paint outside and in the warmth of our spacious studio with wraparound views…

Our base for this Art Safari is the beautiful Kvaløya Island (Whale Island), about an hour’s drive from Tromso, where we are surrounded by Norwegian wilderness and superb views of mountains and the sea. Our friendly Norwegian hosts are looking forward to welcoming Art Safari again to their peaceful waterfront farmstead. We sleep in cosy timber cabins with underfloor heating and tuck into tasty homemade food – fresh cakes, waffles, and hearty traditional stews. The farmstead also has a rooftop Jacuzzi and sauna overlooking the sea, available for guests to rent. It’s a splendid way to view the Northern Lights!

During your stay, we will visit Tromso to see the museums and art galleries. There is the also option to join a reindeer sledding excursion with Sami herdsmen who will tell share some of their history, culture and stories.

Tour Cost from £1570 to £1895 pp sharing (only double beds available)
