This winter photo workshop focuses on the fantastic winter landscape the south coast and the Snæfellsnes Peninsula have to offer. The Northern Lights will hopefully grace us with their presence, but as with all our winter workshops, we will do our utmost to get an opportunity to photograph them. You will find many of the more known locations of Iceland on the south coast along with ice caves. We will visit at least one ice cave during this workshop.
The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is probably best known by photographers for Mount Kirkjufell and its waterfall, but offers much more with moving landscapes and an abundance of beautiful seascapes. The Snæfellsnes Glaciers are mentioned as the gateway to the centre of the earth in Jules Verne’s science fiction novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth. But the peninsula is also one of three national parks in Iceland. The first two days of the workshop will be spent covering the major sights and at least one sunset, and perhaps photographing a Northern Lights show at Mount Kirkjufell.
The south coast of Iceland is the most visited area of Iceland. Luckily, during winter there are less tourist visiting, and we will always try our best to stay away from the crowds when possible. We have plenty of local connections and locations to visit, so we can take you off the radar but still photograph amazing sites. Ice caves are on our itinerary and, hopefully, we will be fortunate to see some Northern Lights over Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach.
