Tour fotografico con Aurora Boreale e grotte di ghiaccio
Unisciti a questa esperienza invernale di otto giorni durante la quale andrai a caccia dell'Aurora Boreale e visiterai le principali attrazioni del paese.
È la scelta perfetta per coloro che vogliono scattare delle bellissime fotografie dell’Islanda in inverno e per chi vuole seguire un workshop con guide pluripremiate.
Durante i mesi invernali, la notte dura di più, permettendoti di prolungare la ricerca dell’Aurora Boreale; inoltre, diverse località offrono fantastiche condizioni di luce. Appena apparirà, saremo pronti a fotografarla!
Un’altra bellezza naturale dell'Islanda si trova sottoterra: durante questo workshop fotografico invernale avrai infatti l’opportunità di esplorare la grotta di ghiaccio di Vatnajokull. I cristalli di ghiaccio blu e la luce che si riflette su di essi creano un'incredibile composizione per le tue fotografie.
Aperto a tutti i livelli di abilità, questo tour ti porta anche nella laguna glaciale di Jokulsarlon. Nei meandri del Parco Nazionale di Vatnajokull, la laguna è diventata una tappa obbligatoria per i fotografi grazie al suo ambiente etereo e alla sua tranquillità. Fotograferemo anche i giganti iceberg e il loro tragitto verso l’oceano.
Visiteremo la Spiaggia dei Diamanti, sulla riva della laguna, disseminata da magnifici cristalli di ghiaccio.

Siggi the Viking
Siggi was born in Iceland and has spent most of his photography career in this paradise.During his time as a photographer, he early on found that his passion lies with photographing the beautiful landscapes and nightscapes of Iceland. One of his favorite activities is being out, chasing the northern lights and thinking of new ways to top his shots.
He has won multiple awards for his work, both locally and internationally, especially for his photos of the Aurora Borealis. Sigurdur has also written a book on the subject to aid everyone in getting the perfect shots of Lady Aurora and held nightscape photography workshops in Iceland since the beginning of 2012 with great success.
When the days get longer and the northern lights fade into the daylight, he turns his eyes towards the sun and the amazing midnight sun that Iceland has to offer with the golden hours that seem to stretch on forever.
Being out in nature with a camera and a tripod can be like a form of meditation – a soothing, peaceful experience that has the potential to lift you out of this world.
For Brynjar Ágústsson, a native Icelandic professional landscape photographer, there is simply nothing more satisfying. A former member of the Rimmugýgur Icelandic Viking Community from Hafnarfjördur, Brynjar is acquainted with even the most hidden corners of Iceland and knows every magical location like the back of his hand.
This former parachute jumper, windsurfer and mountain guide has amassed a wealth of experience from guiding countless photography tours, finding himself at his absolute best when outdoors in the wilderness with a camera in hand.
Well-versed in Lightroom and Photoshop, Brynjar’s work has been featured in many magazines, commercials and exhibitions around the world. He has a deep-rooted interest in keeping abreast with the ongoing technological and ideological advancements in photography, as well as a keen eye for composition and light.
With this Viking at the helm, you will be taken to the most epic arctic landscapes on an adventure to remember for a lifetime. Brynjar’s passion for Icelandic nature is quickly mirrored by all those who join him during every journey. Says the man himself, “In our photo tours, you are in the right place at the right time when the beauty of nature’s show begins.”
Vincenzo MazzaGuarda il profilo
Vincenzo is a nature and landscape photographer. He has been doing landscape photography since 2010, mostly between Italy and Iceland. Born in Italy he moved to Iceland in 2015, after spending many months in that country during the years before to practice landscape photography.
He has been teaching photography and running photo tours since 2011, mostly in Iceland and in Italy. In 2015 he was among the winner photographers of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year international nature photography competition.
In Iceland he become a mountain and a glacier guide, and he is now an official member of the association of the Icelandic mountain guides.
Regarding his approach to photography, he like to consider himself a storyteller. He believes that his pictures are the result of diligence, creativity and technical skills in the field but most of all unconditional love for nature landscapes.
He would define his pictures as “authentic”, they are a faithful representation of the reality at the moment of the photo shooting, prior to all the obvious adjustments which are essential to the optimization of the picture.
Regarding that aspect, he said: “Nature is so impressive, inspiring and magnificent! if I created pictures with Photoshop, mixing up places and different moments I wouldn’t be the storyteller I want to be. Photography is an interpretation of an evanescent moment. Intuition and passion are needed on the playground of nature”.
