Scotland is a storied land, rich in history and culture. It's been the setting of many an epic story — both fictional and real — which is a testament to just how much the land is worth visiting. Our trip will span eight days, where we'll spend time capturing the beauty of Scotland's profound landscapes, not only in places often-visited by photographers and tourists like the Northern castles and fantastic sunsets at Skye, the rocky waterfalls of Quiraing, and the majestic views at Glencoe, but also a lot of equally beautiful spots that lie off the beaten path.
We start our tour in Inverness, from where we'll head directly to Glencoe. Rolling mountains and deep coastline fjords are just among the natural formations that we'll encounter in our journey. The almost-prehistoric feel of the jagged and rustic landscape and waterfalls in the Isle of Skye, the stamp of the earth's primal power in the ancient and volcanic Old Man of Storr, and the crystal clear turquoise waters of the "fairy pools" are just a sampling of what kinds of sights await us.
We'll also experience a different kind of vibe when we visit the Glenfinnan Viaduct, which is probably most famous as the scene in the Harry Potter movies, particularly serving as part of the railway for the Hogwarts Express, the magical train students had to get on in order to reach the school of wizardry. We'll of course have a spot to capture the train as it chugs along the tracks. And finally, we'll wrap things up at the maritime and industrial capital of the Scottish North, Glasgow.
Moscow-born Daniel Kordan is sort of jack of all trades, having graduated from art school and moving on, of all things, to study in the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and become an optics physicist. He also has an intense passion for nature and the outdoors, pursuing mountaineering and hiking during the course of his studies. This was also a time he used his expertise and natural people skills as a tour guide in the winter and summer, guiding visitors who wanted to explore Russia's rugged mountains.
Out of college, Daniel chief editor of global travel and adventure magazine Continent Expedition, as well as an instructor of photo-workshops. His work as a photographer has been recognized by major organizations several times, as he has won the Golden Turtle award and was a finalist in National Geographic Russia's photography contest in 2013 and 2014.

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.
