2-Day Snaefellsnes Peninsula in Summer Photography Tour

Bask in the warm glow of the Midnight Sun and make the most of the endless daylight during summer in Iceland on this 2-day photography tour to the magical Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This photo workshop is perfect for keen photographers of any skill level looking to explore this exciting peninsula in the West of Iceland while improving their landscape photography expertise. Departing from Reykjavík, this small group photography tour is designed to maximise the time that you’ll spend immersed in nature as you hone your camera skills in some of the most stunning scenery to be found on Earth. There’s a reason that the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is oftentimes described as “Iceland in Miniature" and you’ll soon discover why. Summer is when this region really comes alive, blanketed in wildflowers and teeming with wildlife. You’ll have the chance to explore beautiful waterfalls surrounded by lush vegetation, vast lava fields covered in Icelandic moss and sweeping coastlines made all the more breathtaking by a backdrop of mountains and a majestic glacier. You can sample all that Iceland has to offer, even if you have just a brief amount of time, as the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a perfect reflection of some of the best sights to be found all over the country. Some notable sights that you’ll visit include the charming black church of Budir, the small fishing village of Arnarstapi where you’ll be able to wander around rugged cliffs standing tall against the North Atlantic Ocean, as well as the famous Kirkjufell; a pyramid-shaped mountain best known as a filming location for ‘Game of Thrones’. Along the way, your expert photo guides will treat you to some lesser-known sights as we take you off the beaten track. With so much excitement scheduled over two wonderful days, you’ll truly be experiencing the journey of a lifetime. Discover the wonders of the Snæfellsnes peninsula under the Midnight Sun through your camera lense on this exciting summer photography tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

6 Day Photo Workshop Camping in the Icelandic Highlands

Join this six-day camping and photography adventure in the Icelandic Highlands, which will see you following the Midnight Sun and hunting for the best photographic opportunities that Iceland has to offer. Rather than sticking to a set itinerary, we will work with the available conditions to ensure that you will be in the right place at the right time to capture stunning photos within the moment. Due to the fact it will never get dark, your shooting opportunities will be endless. The entire tour will be conducted under the helpful eye of our experienced photo guides, who are experts at shooting in Iceland’s diverse and splendid lighting conditions. Having travelled extensively in the Icelandic Highlands, they will be on hand to ensure your safety and to help you develop your skills throughout the workshop. The Highlands are mostly rugged and uninhabitable, covering a large part of the interior of Iceland. The area that we will explore was carved over a long period of time by volcanic activity and can largely be crossed only during the Icelandic summer. It is a raw and powerful place, where deserts of black sand, steaming hot springs and barren glacial moraine are interspersed with lush fields of vegetation. The Highlands truly are a paradise. With such an abundance of photographic opportunities, the Highlands of Iceland provide avid photographers—both aspiring amateurs and established professionals—with countless subjects upon which to improve their landscape photography skills. Make sure you do not miss this excellent opportunity to explore the Highlands on this unique camping photo workshop, which will take you off the beaten path and into the very heart of Iceland itself.

Landmannalaugar Photography Day Tour

Get ready to take a walk on the wild side in Iceland with this photography day tour to Landmannalaugar. This is a great opportunity for those who would like to experience the Highlands on Iceland, free from driving while honing their photography skills. Situated within the Fjallabak Nature Reserve, in the remote southern Highlands, this extraordinary geothermal destination brims with mystery, set amidst colourful rhyolite mountain peaks, bubbling hot springs and vast, barren lava fields. Make the most of the long summer days and explore this ruggedly enchanting landscape as you take your photography skills to a whole new level! Over the course of the day, you’ll travel by super jeep across spectacular mountain and gravel roads, as you witness the environment changing steadily before your eyes. The Highlands have a lunar-like feel about them, characterised by black sandy plains that spread as far as the eye can reach, with legendary views of the Hekla volcano which was once described as the “Gateway to Hell”. Your first stop will be at the uniquely-shaped Hjálparfoss, a waterfall divided into two cascades that join at the base. Surrounded by rugged lava formations and gorgeous wildflowers, it yields a number of wonderful compositions. As you head further into the barren plains, you’ll come across two incredible volcanic crater lakes nested in flaming red calderas; Bláhylur, with its sparkling blue water glistening in the sun and its little sister, Ljótipollur, jokingly known by Icelanders as the “ugly pond”. Far from unattractive, the two lakes make for a wonderful panoramic scene. From there, you’ll travel along the edge of the massive volcanic lake Frostastaðavatn, where you’ll catch your first glimpse of the breathtaking nature to be found at our main destination, Landmannalaugar. We’ll make a splash as we take our super jeep through the river crossing, before disembarking to begin an easy hike to the peak of the glorious mountain Bláhnúkur. Though steep in some places, you’ll be rewarded with the chance to capture beautiful panoramic views over the Highlands and the Landmannalaugar Valley. As the golden light of the Midnight Sun takes hold, we’ll begin making our way back to Reykjavík. Make sure to leave some space on your memory cards as we near our final shooting destination, the magical Valley of Tears. This fascinating canyon is characterised by a number of small waterfalls that tumble from the sheer cliffs, into an electric blue pool below. It makes for a spectacular sight, with sunset hues blazing across the sky. If you have a strong sense for adventure, then this Landmannalaugar Photography Day Tour by super jeep is for you! Don’t miss out on your chance to get closer to nature. Check availability now by choosing a date.

Þórsmörk Photography Day Tour | Highlands & South Coast

Get in touch with nature and immerse yourself in the extraordinarily lush surroundings of the Highlands oasis, Þórsmörk, with this incredible photography day tour in Iceland!  Situated in the south of Iceland, between the mighty Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull glaciers, this enchanting mountain ridge is one of the most popular hiking areas in Iceland. Teeming with diverse flora and fauna, as well as a myriad of truly magnificent landscapes, it’s the perfect place for you to make the most of the long summer days as you take your photography skills forwards in leaps and bounds! During this day tour, you’ll travel by super jeep along the breathtaking South Coast of Iceland, as you make your way closer towards this lush, natural paradise. You’ll notice the scenery becoming greener as you pass mossy lava fields, interspersed with charming farmhouses and the odd turf house or two. Your first stop will be at the thundering Skógafoss waterfall. Plunging down with force from a height of 60 metres, it often yields a rainbow in its mist, making for a truly captivating scene. Depending on the conditions, you may then make a stop at the mystically hidden waterfall of Gljúfrabúi within a small gorge, or the intriguing Nauthúsagil ravine with its fairytale ambience and misty atmosphere. As you head closer towards the Eyjafjallajökull glacier, you’ll arrive at the Gigjökull glacier tongue where you’ll make an exciting splash in your super jeep as you cross unbridged, glacial rivers before finally reaching Þórsmork. The real heart of this oasis is situated between the rivers Krossá, Þröngá, and Markarfljót. This is where nature reigns supreme and you’ll have the opportunity to photograph birch forests, shrubs, moss and other vegetation thriving in the dense surrounds, set against spectacular geological wonders and volcanic mountain scenery.  The diverse landscape offers an abundance of opportunities for nature and wildlife photographers alike – there is even a good chance that you might run into an Arctic fox or two! The highlight of the day will be when we hike into the mysterious Þakgil canyon, an impressive green valley surrounded by spiky mountainous peaks swathed in thick carpets of moss. You’ll be rewarded by the chance to capture the impossible serenity of this fairytale-like landscape that is almost too surreal to be true. From there, we’ll make our way to Básar, one of the most beautiful locations in Þórsmörk, where you’ll be treated to sweeping views of the surrounding glaciers as the braided river systems snake across the valley floor below. As the golden light of the Midnight Sun takes hold, we’ll begin making our way back towards Reykjavík. Make sure to leave some space on your memory cards as we near our final shooting destination, Seljalandsfoss, a stunning waterfall with a path that leads behind the cascade to provide photographers with 360-degree views.  If hiking is your passion and you love to connect with nature, then this Þórsmörk Photography Day Tour by super jeep is for you! Don’t miss out on your chance to explore Iceland’s most beautiful oasis. Check availability by choosing a date.
