Icelandic Winter 2023
Sunday 26th February – Wednesday 8th March 2023
Tour Cost £3,150 (Plus flights)

Iceland is home to many breathtaking locations that offer real excitement to the photographer. After a number of successful tours we are now offering the opportunity to explore this remarkable country in the grip of winter. Although the daylight hours are short, the winter light and extreme conditions offer a real chance to capture both unique and breathtaking photography.

With the long dark nights there is also a chance to capture the amazing Aurora Borealis, an experience never to be forgotten. In addition there will be the added opportunity of joining a tour to visit the fabulous ice caves. Of course, at this time of year we hope to find the frozen waterfalls and snow covered landscape, which will all add to the excitement of this very special tour.

We fly from London Heathrow to Keflavik arriving mid-afternoon and from there transfer to the Hella, our home for the next two nights. During our stay here we will be able to explore a number of waterfalls and the Geysir area, home to stunning thermal features and the majestic Gullfoss. From there we travel east to Vik, visiting various locations along the southern highway. These include Skogafoss and the Black Beach at Reynisfjara.

From here we continue east to Jokulsarlon, stopping at various locations en route. While we are at Jokulsarlon there will be the opportunity to take the optional tour to the Ice Cave. We will of course explore the Jokulsarlon Lagoon and the beach with its stranded icebergs as this is one of the most exciting photographic features found along the southern coast. The final leg of our journey east takes us to Hofn where we will have the opportunity to explore the amazing Stokksnes Peninsular and photograph the stunning Vesturhorn Mountain.

From here we return west to Selfoss and onto the Snaefellsness Peninsular, giving us the opportunity to explore the many amazing sites to be found here to around the peninsular. We will visit Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellfoss, one of the most attractive waterfalls in Iceland. The peninsular is dominated by the high mountain range running down its spine. Its icecap offers a spectacular backdrop to the wild landscapes and Icelandic churches that are found here. It is also the source of many waterways that form cataracts and waterfalls as they cascade down to the sea. Of course this time of year means the days are short so the light is low offering good landscape potential. This is also an excellent location should we be lucky and experience the Aurora as there are a number of coastal areas which are prime to capture the stunning natural phenomenon.

Having spent time exploring this remote and exciting part of Iceland we will turn south to begin our return journey to Keflavik for our return to London.
