This is our 10th anniversary workshop tour. 9. full workshop days, plus arrival and departure dates. We will stay 3 nights in the southeast with ice on lagoons, glaciers, waterfalls and black beaches. Then we will for the first time cross the highland of Iceland to Myvatn in the north during a long day, because we will have so much to shoot. We stay in the Myvatn area for 2 nights and explore geothermal areas, maybe couple of more stunning waterfalls, before we visit Siglufjordur, the Paris of the North. From There we move to Sanaefellsnes with all the picturesque locations where we will stay for 2 nights.
Arrival is latest Saturday 6. July, the day before the workshop starts and departure is earliest on Tuesday 16. July, the day after the workshop ends. ALL NIGHTS ARE INCLUDED.
This time of year is the best bang for your photographic buck, giving us 20 hrs daylight and 4 hrs of dusk to experience and to capture the incredible and varied Icelandic landscape.
As images and scenes from Iceland appear more and more on social media, in advertising, and in movies, it is obviously a unique, accessible, and highly desirable photo venue. Aside from a few iconic locations, we will be photographing in less visited areas, where we can create images seldom seen.
This trip of a lifetime is all-inclusive. We can’t wait to return to share this breathtaking location with our clients. Iceland is one of the last uncorrupted landscapes on the planet. From the wonderfully photogenic city of Reykjavik to the incredible, vast and varied landscapes, to the mind-blowing glaciers, awesome waterfalls, geothermal springs, rugged coastlines, turf houses, and fields of lupin.
Be prepared to be blown away!
