Iceland is known as the “Land of Fire & Ice”. Sitting due south of the Arctic circle, Iceland offers a unique landscape sculpted by two of the strongest forces, volcanos and glaciers. You will have the opportunity to photograph both extremes, from active volcanoes to icy glaciers plus hot springs, geysers, waterfalls, icebergs and stunning landscapes.
This is a sparsely populated country of only 320,000 inhabitants, the majority of whom live in the area immediately surrounding the Capital Reykjavik. Geologically, it sits on the divide between the two continental plates. Their constant motion causes the volcanic activity found throughout the island. This is a landscape photographer’s dream world, full of color, rock formations, vast open areas, and abundant waterfalls… there will certainly be no shortage of subjects!
Our Autumn trip offers some of the best opportunities to photograph the Aurora Borealis, the colorful phenomenon that lights up the northern night sky.
What makes this trip different?
1) On three days we will use “Super Jeeps”… specially built SUVs that can take us into areas typically inaccessible during the winter months, to access incredible landscape opportunities
2) On one day we will have access to amazing private lands, full of wonderful ponds with icebergs. We will have full access via ATVs.
3) On another day we will have a boat trip to be among icebergs in a lake surrounded by volcanic landscape.
