Iceland detour

Iceland’s increasing popularity creates a dilemma for travel photographers. You want to see Iceland and experience the wilderness, but you don’t want a bus full of people walking into your shot.

This detour is designed for people who want a bit of peace and quiet to practice their Landscape and Nature Photography. The idea is to take you through the back roads to nice, relatively unexplored Iceland. The main tourist routes are well established. This detour aims to avoid these routes giving you an experience of quieter roads and locations.
