This photo tour is for photographers who want to get the whole Iceland package in ten days and nine nights, traveling mainly on Route 1 (ring road) which runs around the island and connects most of the inhabited parts of the country. Some of the most picturesque locations and tourist attractions in Iceland are on or near the ring road. You will see many beautiful waterfalls and rivers, glaciers, icebergs, lava fields, mountains and black sand beaches. You will pass through several national parks en route as well as typical Icelandic countryside and seaside villages. Also, you will spot many species of local or migrating birds as we drive around the country.
Spring: migratory birds are flocking to Iceland April-May and the vegetation is starting to turn green again after winter. The Puffins are busy making their nests. Snow is still in the mountains in the highlands and the glaciers are still white and clean after the winter snow. Tourism high-season has not started yet.
Summer: vegetation is in full bloom, colourful Alaska Lupin flowers and wildflowers can be seen in many places around Iceland. Long days and short nights, with 24 hours of daylight in north Iceland. High-season for tourism.
Autumn: the colours of autumn are taking over and the Northern Lights have started to be visible again after the long bright days of summer. Migratory birds are leaving Iceland until next spring.
