Come along on a private photo tour where you’ll explore the rugged and raw landscapes of the Reykjanes peninsula in the company of an award-winning photo guide. You will have the opportunity to photograph wild, black beaches, jagged cliffs rising from the sea, strange rock formations, and geothermal areas with mud pots and hot springs.

This is the perfect tour for shutterbugs, expert and amateur alike, who are looking to hone their skills and increase the size of their portfolio with fantastic pictures of the otherworldly Icelandic nature.

From Reykjavík city, you will be taken on a day trip to the lunar-like landscapes of the Reykjanes peninsula where you’ll shoot both volcanic and geothermal wonders. The peninsula is on the fissure zone of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, meaning that it is neither on the North American nor the Eurasian tectonic plate, but in a valley between.

Due to the peninsula’s unique position, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions where once common in this area and these forces of nature have shaped the landscape around. It is here where the ocean meets harsh volcanic rocks and black sand beaches can be found along with seemingly endless lava fields covered with soft moss.

Birds are abundant in the summer, as they mostly nest in the jagged cliffs. This provides you with fantastic opportunities to both sharpen your wildlife photography skills and add a variety of photos to your portfolio.

In fair weather, the peninsula is also known for great sunsets but during wintertime, the region turns into the perfect place to hunt the elusive Northern Lights. Your professional photo guide will offer you assistance to help you capture the best photos possible of the beautiful Auroras.
