4 day North Iceland

4 day Goðafoss photo adventure

On this 4 day Photo trip we could plough through some serious Winter snow to get to some of Iceland’s most beautiful photo spots in the North. Or shooting the midnight sun in mid-Summer. We will stay just a few minutes from Goðafoss waterfall and lake Mývatn, this is the tour to capture the brilliant Goðafoss waterfall with a whole load of ice and snow. Opportunities for Sunset, Sunrise and Northern lights (Winter only) at Goðafoss. In the Summer, the opportunity to shoot early sunrises on Goðafoss and Dettifoss is not to be missed (mid – Summer nights only).

Geothermal pools and hot tubs warm us in the Northern Exposure.
