Central features of this workshop are:

  • Northern Lights
  • Ice caves
  • Jokulsarlon
  • Ice beach


Aurora Hunting

This amazing natural phenomenon, also known as Aurora Borealis is essential for any visitor of Iceland in winter. Given good weather conditions, usually cold and crispy nights, the lights are most likely to be seen from September to April. Dancing and blazing through the clear Arctic sky in hues of fluorescent green, orange, purple and shades of red, blue and yellow, the Northern Lights have an air of mystery, quiet grace and beauty and provide a stunning imagery for photography, particularly given the improved technology for filming and photographing them in later years.

Ice Caves

These beautiful ice caves, deep blue like the ocean, are entirely made of ice; cavities that have opened within a glacier. Snow, ice and air have all contributed to shaping and sculpting them, leaving amazing patterns of great variety. Some of the best examples are seen in the area of Vatnajokull, Europe‘s largest glacier, particularly by the Kverkfjoll mountains, where there is a vast one that has a vertical range of 525 meters (1,722 ft) and is 2,8 kilometres (1,7 m) long. Photographing is excellent here, as the interplay of the light and the ice offers amazing imagery.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

You will visit the beautiful Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon more than once on your photo workshop. More than 300 feet of ice break away from the glacier Breidamerkurjokull into the lagoon each year, with huge glistening icebergs of various shapes and sizes drifting towards the sea.The beach itself is further riddled with icebergs. There is also plenty of birdlife in the area and seals stay there during wintertime. Not surprisingly, this site has often been chosen for films, as well as being an ideal place for photography.

Famous Ice Beach

Winter mornings are particularly great for capturing the early sun rays that fall on the ice.
