Iceland photography tour

Dates: 19-25 September 2020


19 Sept: Arrive in Reykjavik. Photography around Reykjavik if arrival times allow. Accommodation in Reykjavik.

20 Sept: Leave Reykjavik and travel northwards to the magnificent rock arch at Hvitserkur, on the northwest coast. We will spend some time photographing here, as well as hopefully at some nearby seal colonies. Accommodation will be near Hvitserkur.

21 Sept: Leave Hvitserkur and head northeastwards to the harbour town of Husavik, on Iceland’s north coast. En route we will stop to photograph in the town of Akureyri, the Eyjafjördur fjord, and the spectacular Godafoss Falls. Accommodation will be in Husavik.

22 Sept: Weather permitting, a morning of whale-watching in the bay off Husavik. In the afternoon we’ll visit Dettifoss Falls and the Jökulsargljufur National Park. We’ll finish the day at Lake Myvatn. Accommodation will be around Lake Myvatn.

23 Sept: Photography around Lake Myvatn, the Krafla volcano and the Namafjall sulphataras and mudsprings. In the later afternoon heading west to countryside near Akureyri. Accommodation will be in the Akureyri area.

24 Sept: Travelling southwards through the very heart of Iceland’s inland Highlands, travelling through rugged mountain and lake landscapes. Along the way we will photograph Hveravellir hot-springs and Lake Hvitartvatn, as well as views of the Langjökull icecap to the west. The end of the Highlands route will be marked by a stop at the mighty Gullfoss Falls. We’ll then return to Reykjavik. Accommodation in Reykjavik, where the tour officially ends.

25 Sept: Return home.

Throughout the tour, at night we’ll be keeping a lookout for Northern Lights opportunities. Success here, of course, will depend on there being clear skies and good solar activity.

Note that the cost of the whale-watching tour will be charged separately during the tour, in case weather conditions don’t permit the boat trip, and giving anyone on the photography tour the option not to take part. At the time of writing the cost is about £80 per person.
