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 tour that takes us right around the island, exploring
lots of the remoter areas on the eastern and northern side of this
We will take
an anticlockwise route following Highway 1 as it circumnavigates
Iceland. We will of course be making many detours on the way to
visit more remote and exciting locations. The first part of our
tour takes us along the popular southern coast of Iceland and we
will take in many of the highlights along this part of the country.
We’ll be visiting the grand waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and
Skogafoss as well as many lesser known falls. We will enjoy a visit
to the Black Beach at Vik with its powerful seas and jutting rocks
and to the magical Jokulsarlon Lagoon and iceberg beach, all of
which will offer great photography. As we reach the eastern extent
of Highway 1 we’ll visit Hofn and Stokksnes where we spend
time photographing this dramatic area, including the majestic Vesturhorn.
From Hofn our
journey swings north along the eastern side of Iceland, a more remote
and less visited part of the island. This will take us through Hvalnes,
Djupivogur and Fasksrudfjordur. As the journey continues north we
will pass the shores of Reydarfjordur with detours to Eskifjordur
and Seydisfjordur before reaching Egilsstadur. This will be our
base for two nights as we explore the remote north-east region of
Iceland with visits to Unafos, Djardvik and Bakkagardi, before heading
east to Seydisfjordur.
From here we
turn west across the northern part of Iceland to Lake Myvatn through
the mountainous interior. Our route takes us through Gausstaddir,
Vididalur and Hrossaborg before arriving at Lake Myvatn where we
spend two nights. From here we will explore the magnificent waterfalls
of Detifoss and Selfoss as well the shores of the lake.
As we continue
west we visit the amazing waterfall of Godafoss taking time to explore
along the east and west banks. Our journey then takes us north from
Highway 1 to the coastal town Husavik and this will allow us to
explore around Oxarfjordur. From here we head south to rejoin Highway
1 with another chance to visit the mighty Godafoss before we head
to Akureyri, our next overnight stop. From here we can also explore
along the western side of Eyafjordur.
We then head
south to Borgarnes detouring for a visit to the coastal town of
Saudarkrokur to explore Skagafjordur. The route takes us past the
Vatnsnes Peninsular on our journey through the north western section
of Iceland. For our final full day we will explore Pingvellir, Geysir
and Gullfoss on our journey to Keflavik. This part of the journey
will take us through the town of Sellfoss and Grindavik as we follow
the coast on our journey to Keflavik and our final night in Iceland.
day we will make our way to the airport for our return to London.
Dependent on the time of our flight we may have an opportunity to
explore the coastline to the north of the airport before our flight
