Here we describe a handful of the tours already completed to show what conditions can be expected during different seasons.

January 2017 – South Coast & Jökulsarlon

Thick snow clouds is the same as pulling that thick duvet over yourself at the end of the day. The storm persisted into the morning and I actually delayed our start towards the Ice Beach because the wind meters …

August 2010 Landmannalaugar

We departed from Reykjavik and headed towards the interior to a geothermal area called Landmannalaugar, the natural gem in the southern highlands of Iceland.

August 2015 – 2 day Jökulsarlon late schedule

Summer days are long, so I timed this 2 day tour with a 14.00 start. This early August tour was along the South Coast as far as Jökulsarlon on day 1 and back along the South Coast to Reykjavik on day 2. Sunset was around 10 pm at Jökulsarlon and the plan was to shoot...

March 2015 – photoshoot at Buðir

This was the final day of the exhilarating 8 day Winter tour with Peter Gordon and a lovely band of Irishmen. The tour had been a riot, we had some severe weather some great light, some magical auroras and a solar eclipse. Due to the promise of no sunrise on the last...

Feb 2016 Ice cave photo shoot

It was the last day of our 5 day workshop, early February 2016 and we arranged a special early trip to the ice-caves with our regular guides at iceguide. The ice caves have become extremely busy over the last few years and at this point of writing there are 4...

Winter Workshop Dec 2014

This was a 5 day workshop which started and ended with a storm and yet we seemed to be in the eye of the storm for 3 whole days in a fantastic location. For starters, we were lucky to get out of Reykjavik.  We left Reykjavik in 2 jeeps with extra size wheels and met...

3 Summer Nights July 2014

This was a shared tour which was supposed to include 3 nights of shooting and 4 days of camping in the Vatnjökull region of South East Iceland. Checking the weather forecasts on the day of pick up make me change the plans, there was a huge rain system sweeping the...

April 2014 5 day tour

This tour took us to the North of Iceland to catch some Winter waterfalls and the powerful Dettifoss before the big thaw.

May 2014 – 7 day tour

This was a tour which took us around Iceland at a time of the year when Winter turns into Summer, the deep snows melt gently revealing colourful herbs and mosses. Waterfalls are fresh and sparkling with the anticipation of Summer and the newly arrived migratory birds...

September 2012 – 5 day tour

This post documents a tour of the South and Central highlands and Glacier lagoons at Vatnjökull. The article is written by Ian Kostrzewski who is Tony Prower's brother. Tony Prower's Northern light picture, featured above, was captured on the trip. All other pictures...

September 2013 – 5 day tour

This tour was a 5 day exploration of Southern Iceland with special emphasis on the Vatnjökull region in the South East. It was a fine sunny day one. The pick up was from a remote hotel, one which I had never been to before... The ION Hotel is located next to the power...

August 2013 – 6 night tour

The beach at Jökulsarlon I returned from this trip wearing only one sock. It was a rough trip with obstacles which might have ended the trip (if we had not been a bunch of optimistic campers). The main idea of the trip was to spend 3 days in the North of Iceland among...

June 2013 – 7 Summer nights

Late June Summer night tour We had our itinerary planned to drive straight to the center of Iceland, or at least to Hveravellir geothermal area. Unfortunately the weather featured a lot of rain and low clouds which made the idea pointless, so we decided to do the...

July 2013 – 8 Summer nights

8 day camping tour late July This tour included many locations over 8 days. As this was mid-Summer, we took our photographs during the night hours. I found it best between 20.00 and 06.00. We were sleeping between 06.00 and 14.00 (give or take and hour or two). We had...
