Northern Lights Adventures

With highly experienced Aurora chasers & photographers

About

Andy Keen is a professional Nature photographer and guide. Although he very much enjoys most aspects of photography, he has a specific interest – that being “chasing” and photographing one of our Planet’s most spellbinding natural phenomena, the Aurora Borealis. In fact, he’s spent the past decade doing just that.

Andy has been extremely fortunate to have witnessed and photographed the “lights” on many occasions and has spent easily in excess of 9,000 hours under the them. During this time, he’s accumulated many thousands of images, some of which have been featured in many leading publications around the globe including National Geographic, China Life, Wanderlust, and the Guardian and The Times newspapers, for example. He has also been published on the front page of Spaceweather.com on numerous occasions, and a selection of his images were included in the best Astronomy pictures of 2012 by the highly regarded Sky & Telescope magazine.

Andy also worked alongside the BBC Scotland in the making of a TV documentary pertaining to the Northern Lights, “Little Stargazing”. The documentary subsequently went on to become runner up in the prestigious BAFTA awards. Moreover, he also assisted both French and Belgian TV on similar projects, as both a contributor and fixer.

In addition to the above, Andy has also done a great deal of work for Charity. He was the former Chief Executive and Founder of the Neuropathy Trust (1998-2014), which was a UK based registered Charity that provided support and information to people who are affected by peripheral neuropathy and neuropathic pain. The organisation assisted many thousands of people around the world. Moreover, he has personally raised in excess of £2 million pounds (Sterling) for charitable purposes.

Spirits In The Sky

“Awe-inspiring, magical, breath taking, spellbinding, mesmerising”, are a few of the words used by our clients to describe the Aurora. In fact, no amount of words or, indeed, images could ever do real justice to the “lights”. They are, to my mind at least, one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular natural phenomena – if not the most spectacular – and it’s hardly surprising that they’re on so many people’s so-called wish-list.

The very first time I witnessed them for myself I was literally speechless. I just lay, silent in the snow, captivated by this truly amazing spectacle unfolding before my eyes. The only noises that I could hear were the faint sound of a reindeer bell tinkling in the distance and the sound of my own breathing. It was a wonderful experience and one that will live with me for a lifetime. Since then I have been fortunate enough to have seen the ‘Spirits in the Sky’ many times and I think that it’s fair to say that I’ve become somewhat addicted to them. The beautiful thing is that they are always different. Sometimes they come in spirals, at other times as ribbons or bands, always varying in speed, colour and intensity. In order to fully appreciate the magnificence of this natural light display it simply must be experienced first- hand and, believe me, it’s something that’s well worth braving the elements for.

On behalf of the team, we very much look forward to welcoming you on one of our Northern Lights and Arctic Nature adventures. In the meantime, we sincerely hope that you’ll enjoy your visit to the website.
