Join Tony Naumovski and myself for an Iceland Photo Tour in October 2018 as we lead you on an amazing adventure. We’ll explore the rugged beauty and natural wonders as we photograph our way around the island.
There is honestly no place on Earth quite like Iceland!
Being there in person and exploring its many diverse landscapes honestly feels like you’re exploring some distant alien world. It’s utterly awe-inspiring, and the word that you’ll find us all saying again and again is “WOW!” With its countless waterfalls, rugged mountainscapes, wind swept valleys, fields of moss-covered lava rock, glacial lagoons and black sand beaches–Iceland is truly a landscape photographer’s paradise.
Tour Dates: October 5th – 16th, 2018 (including arrival & departure days)
On this 12 day iceland photography tour we will lead you from the beautiful capital city of Reykjavík to the volcanic Snæfellsjökull National Park on the western Snaefellsness Peninsula. You’ll witness the spectacular glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón and so much more. Iceland is known for its multitude of incredibly diverse waterfalls and we will explore and photograph many of them together during the photo tour.
Throughout this Iceland Photo tour you will also be given hands-on group and individual photo instruction.
You’ll fly from your home to Reykjavik, arriving October 5th 2018, where we’ll celebrate the start of our trip together with a welcome dinner this evening. Please schedule your flight so to arrive at our hotel in Reykjavik center by 5 pm.
After breakfast on the following day, we’ll depart Reykjavik and for the next 11 days, we’ll guide you around Iceland to the best shooting venues, each beautiful and unique. Accommodations are based on double-occupancy with single occupancy available on a first-come, first-served basis (in most locations) and subject to an added fee.
We will return to Reykjavik late in the day on October 15th 2018 where we’ll celebrate our new friends and full memory cards with a farewell dinner together. You can schedule your departure flights or other activities if extending your stay, any time on October 16th 2018.
