Arctic Road Trips

Cooperations and Media

German newspaper

The journalist Doreen Dormehl visited us in Rovaniemi in November 2022 and joined some of our Aurora Expeditions. We are so happy that she wrote an article about us and our company for the german newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). It came out on the 7th of March 2023 with the name “Dem Licht nach” – translated “Chasing the Lights”. We also got our story shared on the social media account of FAZ. We are still so happy and thankful about that.

Ooni Pizza Ovens

As you might already know – Lorenzo is originally from Italy – and he loves making Pizza. So we took the challenge and prepared the pizza under the Northern Lights in cooperation with Ooni! Ooni is a scottish brand that is manufacturing portable pizza ovens. They launched the first portable wood-pellet fired Pizza oven in the world in 2012. See the footage that we shot here in this small clip!


SIGMA Ambassadors & Trip

We are both ambassadors for the brand SIGMA. We love to use SIGMA lenses for our photography, especially astrophotography. The lenses are perfect for us: sharp, robust and high quality. That is why we are super happy to collaborate with them. Check out our profile on the SIGMA website: SIGMA ambassadors

In March 2023 we did a Road Trip together with SIGMA Nordic. Participants could lend all SIGMA equipment that they wanted. Also two professional photo- and videographers from SIGMA joined the trip.  Some impressions of the SIGMA Astro Expedition below.

As SIGMA ambassadors our photos were part of an photo exhibition in collaboration with the Rajala Gallery in Helsinki in December 2023. 



Sarah Engels & Family

In January 2023 we were super happy to have the german singer and actress Sarah Engels and her family with us on the tour. We got some nice pictures with them even though the Aurora was not the strongest that day.
