12 Day Midnight Sun Photography Workshop around Iceland
Embark on this 12-day photography tour and travel the Ring Road of Iceland, capturing the most amazing natural wonders with your camera. This expedition is perfect for those who want to see a lot of what Iceland has to offer while honing their photography skills.
During this photo workshop around Iceland, you will chase the light across beautiful and epic locations in the company of a group of other enthusiastic photographers. Your award-winning photoguides will share their experience and technique with you at every turn to take your photography skills to a higher level.
During summertime from mid-May through July, the days get longer in Iceland. You will be mesmerised by the “Midnight Sun,” a natural phenomenon where the sunlight remains visible throughout the night creating a golden glow. Be prepared to start early and stay out late hunting and photographing otherworldly scenes in the arctic light.
During this tour, your main focus is on landscape photography but since Iceland is a colony for the smart and beautiful Atlantic puffin, you will also be looking out for this gorgeous seabird that nests in cliffs and little islands around Iceland this time of year.
You will experience Iceland’s surreal beauty with its countless majestic and iconic waterfalls, world-famous glacier lagoons, black sand beaches with impressive cliffs and basalt formations, sea stacks and bird colonies, the largest glacier in Europe, mountain peaks, big lava fields, moon-like steamy craters, active volcanoes, and more.
As well as travelling around the island on Iceland's famous Route 1 Ring Road, you will have the chance to explore the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the western part of the country. This region is well-known for its large amount of natural features decorating its modest 90-kilometre coastline.
This photography workshop is suitable for beginners and experts alike; perfect for those wishing to delve into the world of landscape photography or those looking to progress their skills to a near professional level.

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.
