Incredible Iceland Tour 2015
Who wants to photograph Iceland?
Iceland has many natural wonders ranging from stunning waterfalls, translucent blue icebergs on black sandy beaches to natural hot springs and towering, snowcapped mountains. The question should be who doesn’t want to photograph Iceland?
Neal Pritchard and I travelled extensively throughout Iceland in 2013 and we’re now looking to return to this amazing country. Our aim is to take a small group of photographers to capture those amazing waterfalls, glaciers, icebergs and stunning mountain views.
So, we are seeking expressions of interest in joining our small group, 10 day tour of incredible Iceland in early April 2015. The tour group numbers will be small, just 10 people, and all transport, accommodation and breakfast whilst on tour will be included in price. Accommodation will be twin share, unless a single room option is preferred (for an added cost), at quality comfortable hotels and motels. Airfares into Keflavik International Airport where the tour departs are not included in the price.
Some of the locations we will visit on our 10 day tour are:
- Blue Lagoon with natural heated mineral pools.
- Seljalandsfoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.
- Skogafoss, one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland with a width of 25 metres and drop of 60 metres.
- The picturesque town of Vik, where we will photograph the enormous sea stacks and cliffs, surrounded by black sand beaches.
- Jokulsarlon, where we will photograph stunning glaciers and deep blue icebergs that lie on the beach.
- Skaftafell National Park, including Savartifoss (Organ pipe falls) and amazing snow capped mountains.
- Dettifoss, where the earth looks like it is being ripped apart by a massive and awe inspiring waterfall.
- Selfoss, a stunning waterfall just a few hundred meters upstream from Dettifoss.
- Godafoss, the god of all Icelandic waterfalls and one of the most beautiful waterfalls you will ever see.
- Kirkjufell, one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland with two amazing waterfalls in the foreground creating stunning photographs.
- Night shoots of the northern lights at every opportunity.
- Plus, there will be many stops along the way where you can capture the stunning mountain views of Iceland at every chance we get.
