Join us on the adventure of a lifetime with this amazing 5-day summer photo tour in Iceland!
During the summer months, you’ll be treated to long days and hours of golden light created by the natural phenomenon of the Midnight Sun, making for endless shooting opportunities.
There’s no better place to experience it than along the South Coast of Iceland, where thundering waterfalls, majestic glaciers, black sand beaches, mossy lava fields and Iceland’s most incredible natural wonders such as the Diamond Ice Beach and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon reign supreme!
This amazing 5-day summer photo tour will take you all along Iceland’s famous south coast and into the Vatnajökull National Park, home to Europe’s largest glacier. Along the way, you’ll learn everything you need to know about landscape photography as you capture the breathtaking scenery bathed in the warm glow of the Midnight Sun.
Summer is when Iceland really comes alive and you’ll have exciting opportunities to photograph the country swathed in colour as wildflowers bloom all along the coast. It’s also the best time for spotting wildlife, including Arctic foxes, Icelandic horses, sheep roaming free and of course, the cutest birds in the world, puffins!
Your four nights of accommodation during the tour will be pre-organised for you before your arrival in Iceland, as will your transfers to and from each of your shooting locations. Please note that your accommodation in Reykjavík is not included in the price of the tour and that you will need to arrange this yourself.

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.

Being out in nature with a camera and a tripod can be like a form of meditation – a soothing, peaceful experience that has the potential to lift you out of this world.
For Brynjar Ágústsson, a native Icelandic professional landscape photographer, there is simply nothing more satisfying. A former member of the Rimmugýgur Icelandic Viking Community from Hafnarfjördur, Brynjar is acquainted with even the most hidden corners of Iceland and knows every magical location like the back of his hand.
This former parachute jumper, windsurfer and mountain guide has amassed a wealth of experience from guiding countless photography tours, finding himself at his absolute best when outdoors in the wilderness with a camera in hand.
Well-versed in Lightroom and Photoshop, Brynjar’s work has been featured in many magazines, commercials and exhibitions around the world. He has a deep-rooted interest in keeping abreast with the ongoing technological and ideological advancements in photography, as well as a keen eye for composition and light.
With this Viking at the helm, you will be taken to the most epic arctic landscapes on an adventure to remember for a lifetime. Brynjar’s passion for Icelandic nature is quickly mirrored by all those who join him during every journey. Says the man himself, “In our photo tours, you are in the right place at the right time when the beauty of nature’s show begins.”
