Iceland has one of the most incredible and unique landscapes in the world and we are delighted to be returning to this amazing country in January 2024. With rugged mountains, lava fields, black sand beaches and glaciers, Iceland has more than its fair share of the world’s most iconic locations - plus, of course, the possibility of seeing and photographing the northern lights - a natural phenomenon at the top of most people’s bucket list.
On this tour, we will be exploring the south coast. Shortly after arrival in Reykjavik, we will transfer to Höfn, where we will be based for 2 nights. This is a long drive, so if the weather is suitable, we will break it up with a couple of stops for photography on the way. Once at our base, we'll spend time shooting the breathtaking views at Vestrahorn and Eystrahorn, as well as visiting some of the hidden gems in the eastern fjords.
We will then be based for two nights near the highly photogenic Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the unique black sand ‘ice beach’. As well as these iconic locations, we will also visit some lesser-known but equally impressive lagoons and the glacier at Svínafellsjökull.
For our final two nights we will be based at Vik. With its dramatic rocks stacks, basalt cliffs and black sand beach, Vik needs little introduction. As well as shooting this imposing coastline, we will also have time to visit the nearby waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.
At this time of year, days are short, but with the sun low in the sky for the entire day, the effect is one of a permanent 'golden hour'. The longer nights also mean an increased chance of being able to photograph the northern lights. We'll keep a close eye on the forecast and will also be advised by our local guide and will be prepared to head out whenever there's a good chance of being able to shoot the aurora.
Your tutors for this trip will be Ross and Mark, both of whom have visited Iceland on many occasions (Mark has led over 20 tours here) and are familiar with all of the locations. We will also have a local guide, who will drive us in an all-terrain super-jeep, allowing us access to places other groups may not be able to reach. With a maximum group size of 10 participants and two tutors, you are guaranteed plenty of individual tuition.
Included in the cost are 6 nights bed and breakfast accommodation in excellent hotels, transfers to and from Keflavik International airport and all transport during the workshop. We hope you fancy joining us for this unique photographic experience…
*Please note that flights are not included in the cost of this workshop, but after booking, we will contact you with details of recommended flights. It's a long transfer to our first location so we will need to leave reasonably early in the morning. Not all airlines have released their flight details for Januay 2024 and if there are no flights arriving early enough on the Monday, we will ask you to fly out on Sunday. Please take this into consideration when booking this workshop. We will meet the group at the airport at a designated time on Monday.
