5 day South Iceland
Scheduled Photo Tours
Get close to an erupting geyser & Europe’s biggest waterfall. Photograph ice on black sand beaches and witness Glacier lagoons & volcanic landscapes. Not to mention the craziest lava field in Iceland. This 5 day photography adventure combines our popular South coast & Jökulsarlon tours with the Golden Circle and Snæfellsnes Peninsular to give you a total South Iceland photo experience. The tour is designed to have overnights at top photo locations (Jökulsarlon, Skogafoss and Kirkjufellsfoss) in case the clouds clear during an Aurora display.
On the first day we make our way around the Snæfellsnes peninsular photographing landscapes and little fishing villages. This photo tour may catch Sunrise on the Kirkjufell mountain and again after breakfast on day 2. The first evening of our photography adventure has the possibility of photograph Northern Lights at a great location on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
The second day has many opportunities to photograph some of Iceland’s famous highlights at a relaxed pace. You will have plenty of time to properly explore areas such as the National park at Þingvellir, the Erupting Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall and many others.
After an overnight stay on the South Coast, the tour takes us East to the Vatnjökull region with its lagoons and glacier landscapes. Reflections are common in the waters of Jökulsarlon (the glacial lagoon).
This 5 day scheduled tour includes the South coast, Jökulsarlon, Vestrahorn, Snæfellsnes peninsula, Geysir and Gullfoss. Over the five days you have two chances to photograph the south coast. The hotels in the East are very close to Jökulsarlon & the Ice beach. We are 10 minutes away if we are lucky enough to see auroras (winter) or to explore the lagoon through the midnight sunlight (Summer). Here we can also take great photos on the Diamond Ice Beach (black sand beach with glacial ice). We may visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skogafoss waterfall, Reynisdrengur – sea stacks, Fjaðrárgljúfur Gorge, Skaftafell, Jökulsarlon Lagoon & Ice beach, Fjalsarlon, Höfn fishing town, Mount Vestrahorn. Activities could include light hiking, ice-cave exploring (mid-Winter only), Glacier Lagoon boat rides, museums and restaurants.
We visit many locations along Iceland’s South Coast on the way to the East and on the return journey. Witness black sand beaches, magnificent waterfalls, secret gorges and sea stacks.
Guaranteed ice! The ice lake at Jökulsarlon has been melting for nearly a century and delivers beautiful ice to the mouth of the lagoon. The diamond beach is often filled with chunks of glacier ice that have made their journey to the ocean. This photo experience will give you a few chances to photograph the diamond ice beach in the best light.
