Embark on an unforgettable journey with us this fall in our Iceland Photo Tour. Immerse yourself in the enchanting beauty of Iceland, a landscape photographer’s dream destination.

But the magic doesn’t end there – at nightfall, you can experience the awe-inspiring spectacle of the Northern Lights, painting the sky with hues of green and violet. Under this breathtaking phenomenon, each location becomes magical when the Aurora shines across the night sky.

 

We’ve scheduled our photo tour around the fall equinox, the best time of the year to photograph the Northern Lights.

OVERVIEW

Our tour will focus on some of the most photogenic areas in Iceland – the Southern part of Iceland, a true paradise for landscape photographers. Every corner reveals breathtaking locations that will fuel your creative spirit. Capture emblematic waterfalls such as Skogafoss and Gullfoss, volcanic black-sand beaches like Reynisfjara and Stokksnes, other classics like the Golden Circle, as well as glaciers like Jokulsarlon, and glacier caves that defy imagination.

Beyond the stunning scenery, immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring spectacle of the northern lights, brightening the dark September nights. We’ll be vigilant for solar activity and guide you in planning, predicting, and capturing these celestial wonders.

Throughout our photography expedition to Iceland, we are committed to personally assisting you in capturing the best possible images. Available 24/7, we strive to ensure you not only return home with exceptional photos but also with an enriched knowledge base and, of course, unforgettable moments. Regardless of your gear or skills, together, we’ll extract the maximum potential from both, making this journey a remarkable chapter in your photographic story.

2024 ICELAND PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR ITINERARY

Our Iceland Photo Tour itinerary is tentative and flexible, as it will be adjusted according to the weather conditions. During the night sessions, we will move to areas with clear skies to increase our chances of seeing the Northern Lights.

September is statistically the best time to see the Aurora in terms of solar activity, so if the weather permits, this will be an Iceland Northern Lights tour.

DAY 1: ICELAND PHOTO TOUR

Our Iceland photo tour begins at Keflavik International Airport (KEF), where we will be waiting for you to take you to our first hotel.

After a meet and greet with the rest of the group and a welcome speech, we will do a quick gear review to make sure that you have your camera gear ready for the adventure!

Later, we’ll do a sunset session around the oldest lighthouse in Iceland; Reykjanesviti. In this area, you will find some photogenic cliffs and sea stacks where we will capture our first images. If there are favorable conditions at night, our first-Northern Ligths photography session will be in the Reykjanes Peninsula with different locations in the cliffs, Lake Kleifarvatn, and the photogenic houses of Straumur.

DAY 2: ICELAND PHOTO TOUR

On the second day of our Iceland photography tour, our first stop will be Seljalandsfoss, one of the most impressive waterfalls on the island. As we get closer, you’ll see its tall elegant shape from the distance. One of the highlights here is walking behind the waterfall. Close to this waterfall, we will visit another secluded waterfall called Gljufrafoss.

We will continue along the Icelandic Ring Road until we reach one of the most photographed waterfalls in Iceland, Skogafoss. This massive stream of water will take your breath away. It is one of our favorite spots on the trip, and it’ll probably be familiar from popular series such as Vikings or Game of Thrones.

After Skogafoss, we’ll visit the nearby Kvernufoss. This waterfall tends to be overshadowed by the neighboring Skogafoss despite being one of the most photogenic waterfalls in Iceland. Here, we’ll show you different compositions and we’ll also walk behind the waterfall for some unique views.

If conditions are favorable, we will return to Seljalandsfoss to photograph the sunset, and if chances are in favor for seeing the Northern Lights, we will take photographs from Skogafoss.

DAY 3: ICELAND PHOTO TOUR

On the third day of our Iceland photo tour, we’ll explore one of the most photogenic regions in the country— a landscape adorned with glaciers, glacier lagoons, and glacier beaches. Our first glacier of the day will be Svinafellsjokull glacier, one of Iceland’s most striking glaciers, which well meet at eye level after a brief walk.

Later, after checking in to our accommodation, we’ll witness a serene sunset at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, renowned for good reason as one of the most photogenic spots in Iceland. Returning at night, we hope to capture the elusive beauty of the Aurora Borealis over this iconic spot.

En route to the glaciers, we’ll make stops at the Fjadragljufur canyon, a delicately beautiful moss-covered canyon, and the distinctive Lomagnupur rock, shooting almost straight up from the ground. These locations will add diverse elements to our visual journey. This day promises not just photographic opportunities but an authentic encounter with the raw, untamed beauty of Iceland’s icy landscapes.
