Iceland photography tour by Light & Land Ltd

Iceland from the air

Iceland is incredible at any time of year but through the winter months when the landscape is transformed by a covering of snow and ice it becomes even more spectacular than ever. Frozen waterfalls, beaches littered with icebergs, snow covered volcanoes and mountains and of course Aurora Borealis will be the highlights of the tour. This six night tour is to get a taste of Icelands wonderful south coast and hopefully have a very good chance or two to make images of the northern lights as we travel.

The first three days will be spent on the Central South Coast of Iceland at Vik. Based here we are perfectly positioned to photograph the local area including the sea stacks at Vik and Dyrhólaey,

The first three days will be spent on the Central South Coast of Iceland at Vik. Based here we are perfectly positioned to photograph the local area including the sea stacks at Vik and Dyrhólaey, Skogarfoss and Seljalandsfoss and beyond. In winter we may find the waterfalls frozen and the landscape covered in snow right down to the ocean with any luck. These landscapes will look wonderful in daylight but also at night where we will capitalise on any chances to make images of the auroras. The coastline here is very rugged and dramatic with giant waves and some remarkable rock formations.

Then for the last leg of the tour we will base ourselves near Jokulsarlon at Hofn. We will be based just a few minutes from the iconic Verstrahorn Mountains where will spend a couple of days photographing this remarkable landscape. Views of the Vatnajokull Glacier, icebergs in the lagoon and the black volcanic beach covered in diamond like icebergs will also be visited at Jokulsarlon. The glacier lagoon and beach is a world class location for landscapes and for night images of the northern lights. We will capitalise on any usable light as much as we can.

Please note- A reasonable degree of fitness will be required to negotiate a possible icy terrain from time to time.

This tour is limited to six participants.
