Iceland Photography Tour

This Iceland Landscape Photography Tour has been planned with the photographer right in the center, we’ll go where the light is at it’s best or getting you to where you’ll have clear skies to watch and photograph the Aurora Borealis. Although we are working from a fixed itinerary, do not despair, it won’t be a case of getting 15 minutes to photograph each location, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the areas and if we’re driving down the road and you spot something you like, if safe to do so, I will stop!

Our accommodation for the duration of the photography tour we will be conveniently located near Kirkjufell for the Snaefellsnes Part and for the South Coast only 10 minutes from Vik, both of which are central to a lot of the locations we will be visiting. Accommodation is based on sharing and it is twin beds.

As with all my Iceland Photo Tours & Workshops I like to keep the numbers small, and this photo tour is limited to only four people! This allows me to spend more one on one time with you, helping you with any questions you may have.

Transport for the week is in a spacious mini bus.

Our accommodation for this photography tour we will be conveniently located near Kirkjufell on Snaefellsnes Peninsula, and when we're on the South Coast we'll be located only 10 minutes from Vik, both of which are conveniently located to all locations we will be visiting.

 

On the first day we'll stop at the supermarket where you'll be able to buy enough food to last a few days. From experience, people generally buy food which is quick to prepare.  Both accommodations have a kitchen which microwave, hobs, fridge/freezer where we can prepare lunches, breakfast and dinners.

 

We will also have plenty of opportunities to stop at the many cafes to grab a quick bite to eat and a coffee.

 

No meals included.

Most major UK, European and North American airports will have regular flights to Keflavik, Iceland.

 

Some of the flights are seasonal so check with with the airlines for flight availability.

Your photography adventure begins and end at Keflavik, Iceland.

In an ideal world I'd love to say that the tour begins on the 111th November at 12pm and finishes at 12pm on the 18th November but from my 4 years of experience running tours in Iceland this does not happen.

I understand that flights will not always arrive and depart when we want them to especially since we can be coming from all round the world, therefore the arrival and departure days itinerary is based upon our flights.

This exact timings will be confirmed and organised before the tour begins.

Whether this is your first or your 10th workshop, it's always helpful to have a rundown of what items you may want to pack. The following list is ideal but not absolutely necessary.

 

Please note, only one large suitcase and camera bag (airline size restrictions apply) for each person.

  • A good plan is to dress in layers, this way you're prepared for whatever weather appears.
  • Wind and waterproof jacket
  • Insulating jacket (goes under the above)

  • Wind and waterproof trousers
  • Hiking boots or shoes
  • Down Jacket

Will we definitely see the northern lights?

No. The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon just like the weather and therefore it can’t be controlled. However in the evening, regardless of clouds and if we have clear skies, we will be outside trying.

How many people are on your tours?

I want my tours to be as personal as possible and this is why my tours are true small group tours and are limited to no more than 5 people per tour.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

You will share a room with another guest of the same sex only. You have to remember that we will only be using the accommodation for sleeping in, and also preparing food, 90% of the time we will be out taking photos.

Is Iceland expensive?

Yes and no.  It all depends where you are coming from.  I find coming from the UK prices are similar, sometimes slightly more expensive.  If coming from the Eastern Europe or USA you will it more expensive.  Over 7 days I find I spend roughly £150 on food, this includes eating in a restaurant one night and gas station stops for coffee.

What is self-catering?

Self catering means that we will prepare our own food for the day from groceries that have been purchased at a supermarket.  That’s not to say we won’t be stopping at cafes, gas stations to grab a quick bite – especially for coffee!  We will eat at 1 restaurant on the day we go to Vestrahorn.

Can I bring food with me?

As long as the food is not fresh food then you can bring food with you, things like noodles, energy bars, cup-a-soups, pot noodles etc anything really that is sealed. The usual rules apply when traveling from country to country.
