10 Day Photo Workshop in the Highlands & South Coast
Journey across some of Iceland's most remote landscapes on this 10-day photography tour of the Highlands and South Coast. This tour is perfect for photographers with a sense of adventure as well as looking to sharpen their camera skills.
You’ll be whisked away in a modified 4X4 vehicle to the heart of Iceland’s remote highlands, where you’ll capture desolate scenes of natural beauty and photograph Iceland’s iconic landscapes.
You will see the captivating geothermal sceneries to be found at both Hveravellir and Landmannalaugar, the multi-coloured rhyolite mountain ranges across the central Highlands, countless waterfalls as well as the serene and splendid glacier lagoon at Jökulsárlón.
Iceland truly is a land of contrasts. At Fjaðrárgljúfur and Sigöldugljúfur canyons, you will photograph lush, green, moss-covered scenes whereas at the Diamond Beach you will capture glistening ice crystals as they sit upon the volcanic black sands that Icelandic beaches are famous for. You will visit the most famous of these, Reynisfjara beach.
The tour will be led in small groups by award-winning, professional photographers, giving you the opportunity to hone your skills in the company of friendly, knowledgeable experts. Every evening, your accommodation will be arranged for you as well as all of your meals and airport transfers.
Pack your camera and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime, as you venture out into the wilderness to explore Landmannalaugar, Vatnajökull and beyond. Check availability by choosing a date.

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.

Vincenzo MazzaView profile page
Vincenzo is a nature and landscape photographer. He has been doing landscape photography since 2010, mostly between Italy and Iceland. Born in Italy he moved to Iceland in 2015, after spending many months in that country during the years before to practice landscape photography.
He has been teaching photography and running photo tours since 2011, mostly in Iceland and in Italy. In 2015 he was among the winner photographers of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year international nature photography competition.
In Iceland he become a mountain and a glacier guide, and he is now an official member of the association of the Icelandic mountain guides.
Regarding his approach to photography, he like to consider himself a storyteller. He believes that his pictures are the result of diligence, creativity and technical skills in the field but most of all unconditional love for nature landscapes.
He would define his pictures as “authentic”, they are a faithful representation of the reality at the moment of the photo shooting, prior to all the obvious adjustments which are essential to the optimization of the picture.
Regarding that aspect, he said: “Nature is so impressive, inspiring and magnificent! if I created pictures with Photoshop, mixing up places and different moments I wouldn’t be the storyteller I want to be. Photography is an interpretation of an evanescent moment. Intuition and passion are needed on the playground of nature”.
