Those with a keen interest in photography will be in their element when they embark on one of our Iceland Photo Tours. The landscapes of this wild and wonderful island in the middle of the North Atlantic are some of the most dramatic on earth. Such variety, spanning from frozen glacial panoramas to smouldering volcanic terrain, allows the budding photographer to experiment, be creative and have fun with their shots. Whether you are a complete beginner with a standard point-and-shoot camera or an experienced photographer with all the latest equipment, our Iceland photo tours can teach you new techniques for taking quality shots. The tours are led by a professional photographer called Haukur Snorrason, who has lived in Iceland all his life. He can share all the tricks of the trade to help you achieve the best set of holiday photos you’re ever likely to get.
Capturing the Magic of Iceland
Destinations on Iceland Photo Tours
Three of the country’s most visited attractions make up the Golden Circle tour. Included are Þingvellir National Park (home to the Mid-Atlantic rift valley) Geysir Hot Springs and Gullfoss Waterfall, which translates as ‘The Golden Falls.’ In each location, your expert guide will show you the best ways of capturing the iconic features. Test your reactions as you attempt to photograph the exact moment that a boiling hot spring erupts high into the air. Learn how to master the fluid-motion technique as you slow down your shutter speed and take beautiful shots of waterfalls. You can even learn the art of ‘stitching’ several photos together to produce 360 degree panoramic shots of the captivating terrain.
Also on Iceland Photo Tours, you might be lucky enough to be treated to a display from the Northern Lights. They are notoriously difficult to photograph, but with your expert guide on hand to help, you might be able to achieve some impressive results. In addition to capturing sensational landscapes on film, you can attempt some action photography too, as you and your group partake in outdoor activities such as hiking and glacier walking. There is even time to visit Reykjavík on our Iceland Photo Tours, giving you the opportunity to take some exciting shots of cityscapes.
