Two Week Circle of Iceland Photo Workshop in Autumn
Join us on a two-week photography adventure along the Ring Road, visiting the best of Iceland’s majestic landscapes. This workshop road trip is a great idea for anyone who wants to discover Iceland's limitless natural beauty with a camera, all while developing their photography skills.
Autumn in Iceland is a colourful season of contrasts, which makes for excellent photos of landscapes bursting with texture and colour. The temperature is not yet as cold as it gets in the winter but you can still chase the Northern Lights in the dark autumnal nights.
Your tour of the island will be led by an award-winning photographer, who will direct you every step of the way and help you to capture the stunning landscapes. You will travel in a comfortable minivan with plenty of space for you and your equipment.
The famous Route 1 Ring Road encircles the island and you will complete it with numerous stops along the way. You will also visit the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the West of Iceland, where you will find waterfalls, dramatic rock formations and mystical mountains.
You will have the opportunity to shoot glaciers, icebergs, mountains and so much more with your experienced photo guide, who will share their insider knowledge about the best places to stand your tripod and which subjects to feature for the perfect composition. This tour is open to all skill levels and so it is well suited for amateurs and experts alike.
Each evening, you will cast your eyes to the heavens, so as not to miss the Northern Lights should they make an appearance. Your guide will also keep an eye on the aurora forecast and keep in mind the best landmarks to feature in the foreground of your Northern Lights snaps.
Spanning over two whole weeks, this trip around Iceland in autumn is a comprehensive workshop that is guaranteed to leave you with quality photos and memories to last a lifetime.

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.
