This Iceland winter Photo workshop takes you to some of the most photogenic locations on the South coast of Iceland, including a visit to the ice caves in Vatnajökull and Northern Lights hunting during the night if weather permits.
Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls are our first stops of the tour and Dyrhólaey peninsula, Black Beach and Reynisdrangar before heading to our first over night stop at the beautiful village of Vík on the south coast. Great locations for sunsets and sunrises with the Reynisdrangar sea-stacks and Dyrhólaey peninsula.
The Northern Lights are a great addition to the experience on a tour like this. On a cold night with clear sky and weather permitting, we will find beautiful locations to catch a glimpse of the green stuff, the Northern Lights. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee of seeing the Northern Lights, even though we try our best.
On day two you will see towering sea cliffs, black sand beaches, glaciers and magnificent gully's cutting into the highlands below the glacier Mýrdalsjökull. We head on east towards Skaftafell and the Glacier Lagoon for our second and third nights.
Day three and four is dedicated to the Vatnajökull National Park visiting the Glacier Lagoon and other picturesque places in the area from morning to night, catching the sunset before heading back to our accommodation. Visiting an ice cave is a great experience and can be added to the tour.
On our way back on day five we will be stopping at a few locations like the Stjórnarfoss waterfall near Kirkjubæjarklaustur and the Fjaðrárgljúfur gorge, cutting through the edge of the highland. The Dyrhólaey peninsula and visiting two great waterfalls, The Skógafoss waterfall is one of the icons of the south coast, ending with Seljalandsfoss.
