Experience the thrill of chasing the Midnight Sun and photograph the dramatic sunset colors in Denali! With a maximum of 4 participants per group, this tour provides a personalized photography experience featuring a prolonged “magic hour.” Revel in the beautiful alpenglow on the mountains, and spectacular cloudscapes. During mid-summer, sunset is close to midnight due to our far north location. The sunset colors last for an extended period of time, giving us ample opportunity to move to several locations during “golden hour” for instruction and experimentation with different compositions, focal lengths, and exposure settings. The extended sunset offers good potential for moose sightings because moose are more active at dusk.
Professional tripods and filters are provided. Digital cameras with long zoom lens are available to rent, and guests keep the memory card. We do our best to create opportunities for viewing wildlife and “The Mountain” (Denali), but we cannot guarantee it because the weather and behavior of animals are out of our control. Guides will take guests to the best locations given the current weather conditions, light, and wildlife activity.
