10 Day Northern Lights and Ice Caves Photo Workshop in Iceland
Join this 10-day winter landscape photography tour and experience some of the best natural light and impressive landscapes that Iceland has to offer. This is a great opportunity to photograph ice and the Northern Lights while learning new techniques from award-winning photography guides, taking your skills to a higher level.
You will travel in comfort on a spacious bus and a modified super jeep to cover the iconic frozen landscapes of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, capturing sights such as Kirkjufell mountain and the black church of Búðir. Additionally, you will visit Iceland's stunning South Coast for ice caves, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, the Diamond Beach and many waterfalls.
Iceland is one of the best places to capture the amazing Northern Lights dancing across the dark Arctic sky. Your guides will keep a close eye on weather conditions and the aurora forecast to ensure you can photograph the Aurora Borealis in the most spectacular landscapes.
Included in this tour is a trip to an ice cave. You will be accompanied by a professional ice cave guide who will escort you to this rare natural phenomenon, lend you protective gear and direct you through the caves with utmost caution. Ice caves in Iceland will give you the feeling of being in a different world, filled with varied shapes and patterns of shiny blue ice waiting to be captured by your camera.
At Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the Diamond Beach, you'll have many chances to photograph massive icebergs and chunks of ancient ice that break away from the nearby Breiðmerkurjökull glacier in Vatnajökull National Park.
The Snæfellsnes peninsula is an exciting region, especially in winter. There are beautiful beaches, incredible lava and rock formations, and, not least, one of Iceland's most famous mountains, Kirkjufell.
This photography tour is easy to moderate in difficulty and it is open to all skill levels, making it the perfect choice for amateur and experienced photographers alike. All of the instructors are award-winning photographers, so you can expect the best possible results.
Grab your camera and get ready for an adventure across Iceland all the while improving your photography skills and taking some of the best pictures of your life. 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.
