This Iceland day tour gets you wet.
The ear-splitting roar of glacial melt-water as it plunges down a sheer 40 meter cliff will stir your creativity. Fantastic rainbows remain constant in the spray which only yields to the occasional gusts of wind. The relentless pounding sounds every frequency of the human ear. Your camera is ready to record the rest…
Locations and activities:
This is a waterfall tour in the south of Iceland where we have the chance to explore a bunch of Iceland’s best waterfalls. We head straight out of Reykjavik into the amazing Icelandic countryside where some of the most interesting waterfalls are relatively close. The tour could include; Öxararfoss, Brúarfoss, Gullfoss or Haifoss and Hjalpafoss towards Iceland’s interior or Urriðarfoss, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss on the south coast. Whichever route, this tour will include a lot more than just the waterfalls.
Small group tours are flexible and photographic assistance can be provided.
There are restaurants and cafes at some locations, but this depends on the time of the tour.
8-10 hours (flexible)
Summer: The photo tour may start early afternoon in Summer. This trip may involve shooting through the night hours (20.00-02.00) and returning to Reykjavik early morning during Mid-Summer. We will revert to daylight hours through August.
Winter: Regular morning starts from 07.30 – 09.30 for most of the Winter.

These beautiful light conditions can be found in North Iceland during the Summer. The reds go so deep when the sun and clouds are right and then it happens all over for the Sunrise just a few hours earlier. As a general rule, Icelandic waterfalls are facing the nearest coastline, so Northern waterfalls face North, Eastern waterfalls face East and so on.
This was a long Summer tour around Iceland anti-clockwise. Dettifoss Waterfall was on the Northern leg of the photo tour.
Seljalandsfoss doesn’t have any direct light mid-Winter, but is still a great waterfall to photograph in the cold.
