Iceland is home to many breathtaking locations that offer real excitement to the photographer. After a number of successful tours to Iceland we are now offering a second tour that takes us right around the island, exploring many of the remoter areas on the eastern and northern side of this unique country.

Unlike our previous Full Circle tour in 2023, this tour will follow a clockwise route around Iceland. Route 1 is the main highway and circumnavigates Iceland, so we will follow this but will of course be making many detours on the way to visit some exciting and more remote locations. The first part of our tour takes us northwest to visit the amazing Snaefellsness Peninsular, one of the best areas in the whole of the country. Here we can visit exciting waterfalls, spectacular coastlines and remote churches. Having spent two nights here, our journey takes us east along the southern shores of Hvammsfjordur to Laugarbakki and Blonduos. From here we travel to the north coast at Saudarkrokur and continue to follow the coastline as we explore this remote and spectacular section of the coast, passing through Siglufjordur and Dalvik before rejoining Route 1 at Akureyri.

From Akureyri we continue east visiting Grenivik and the mighty waterfall of Godafoss. Our journey then takes us to Husavik and onto the Asbyrgi Canyon and the falls of Dettifoss and Selfoss before we reach Lake Myvatn, our base for the next two nights. We will explore around Lake Myvatn with a visit to the Hverir Thermal Basin and a further visit to Godafoss. From Lake Myvatn we cross the high mountains to Egilsstadir, detouring to visit the amazing Studlagil Canyon along this section of our journey. We have two nights in Egilsstadir, allowing us to visit around Jokulsa a Bru towards Hallormsstadur. From here we can travel north to Bakkagerdi and Hafnarhus to photograph the coloured hillside. We will also take the time to visit the many waterfalls along the road to Seydisfjordur before we continue our journey southwards.

The next leg of your journey takes us along the east coast to Breiddalsvik, detouring to Eskifjordur. As our journey continues south we will pass the shores of Rejdarfjordur. From Breiddalsvik we will detour inlands to explore the remote Heydalur before continuing south past Fasksrudfjordur to Djupivogur. Our route south takes us alongside Alftafjordur past the spectacular coastline at Laekjavik as we reach the mountainous area around Hvalnes and Lonsvik on our journey to Hofn. We have two nights in Hofn which will allow us time to explore the spectacular Stokksnes Peninsular and the remarkable Vesturhorn.

From here we turn east toward Brunnholl as we follow the coast westwards towards the amazing Jokulsarlon lagoon. Here we will spend time visiting the lagoon and Diamond Beach in search of Icebergs that break off from the nearby glacier. We can also visit the nearby Fjallsarlon Glacier and its lake of icebergs. As we continue west we stop at Hof to visit the turf roofed church. Our journey then takes us to Skaftafell where we can make the short detour to the Falljokul Glacier. As we continue west we pass a number of spectacular waterfalls such as Foss a Sidu, Systrafoss and Stjornarfoss as well as the extensive moss beds enroute to Vik. While we are at Vik we will explore the Black Beach at Reynisfjara and the spectacular Dyrholaey. The final section of our journey in the south of Iceland takes us past the spectacular Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls as well as remote churches and spectacular landscapes.

As our tour comes to an end, we head through Selfoss and explore Thingvellir and Oxarafoss as we travel to Keflavik to join our return flight to London.
