8 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour
Embark on an 8 day summer photography adventure to the long-forgotten Faroe Islands! This picturesque archipelago of volcanic islands situated in the North Atlantic Ocean between Iceland and Norway harbours many hidden gems for landscape and nature photography. From lush valleys and striking mountain peaks soaring high above the sea to waterfalls plunging directly from sheer cliffs into the tumultuous ocean below, this rugged and wild region has it all.
During summer, the days are long and the many hours of daylight afforded by the golden glow of the Midnight Sun mean that we'll be able to stay out immersed in the throes of nature deep into the late hours of the night. We'll spend our days exploring the scenic fjords, tiptoeing around puffins, hiking along breathtaking mountain ridges, chasing waterfalls and making the most of our time in this fairytale location.
This photography workshop is open to photographers of all levels. Throughout the tour, your photography guide will be on-hand to help you develop your skills in-field. They will share their immense amount of knowledge with you as they take you to the best locations for landscape and nature photography, monitoring the conditions at all times to ensure that you'll be able to take advantage of the extraordinary summer light.
The weather in the Faroe Islands is dynamic throughout the year, so you can expect to take home a range of dramatic, moody and atmospheric shoots. Improve your landscape photography in one of the most awe-inspiring destinations in the world! Check availability by choosing a date.
