Sample Itinerary

Note: on a private tour this can be adjusted to suit your interests.

Day 1

Pick-up from your Reykjavik Hotel and head to the South coast waterfalls.  Seljalandsfoss is the waterfall you can walk behind for infinite compositions.  This could be the first or the last photo stop on the tour depending on the conditions.  Then Skogafoss which works so well in the Winter light.  The afternoon could include Dyrholaey with a sunset at Vik (mid Winter) or heading East with short stops to catch a Sunset at Jokulsarlon (longer days).  We settle into our hotel near Jökulsárlón and enjoy an Icelandic evening meal with one eye on the Sky hoping for Northern lights (Winter only).  If the conditions are right at a reasonable time in the evening, you could go out to photograph them in the local landscapes including Jökulsárlón.  If they appear when your guide should be sleeping, it is possible to photograph them from the hotel.

Day 2

The day could start with a sunset on the diamond beach, glacier lagoon or an Ice cave adventure. The crystal ice beach has incredible photographic opportunities.  One full morning there will leave you yearning for another.  Splitting the morning between the Lagoon and beach can be very successful  After a warming Icelandic lunch, we can explore other glacier lagoons and the incredible glacier landscapes or head off to Vestrahorn mountain for Sunset. A second night at our Jökulsárlón hotel where we can enjoy a tasty fish supper, some local beer and go through some of our pictures. Northern lights photography if conditions are good.

Day 3

After breakfast we travel with luggage and camera gear to the glacier lagoon or ice beach, we head back along the South Coast with stops at glacier landscapes, traditional architecture, waterfalls and lava landscapes. After lunch we head back towards Vik or Dyrholaey for the afternoon and Sunset.  Longer days may catch Seljalandsfoss waterfall at sunset. The tour finished with a drop-off at your Reykjavik hotel a couple of hours after the final photo location.
