Custom Multi-Day tour
All our multi-day Iceland photo tours are private and tailor made to suit the needs of the individual or the group. They are designed by photographers with many years experience of photographing Iceland. All multi-day photo tours are scheduled to get the best available light and may involve photographing through night hours in mid-summer.
Summer: (June-August) There are no chance of Auroras during the Summer months, but there is great access to the interior mountain regions where you can experience the magnificence of raw, volcanic landscapes in beautiful light… For a photo tour like this, participants need to be prepared to camp and travel for long periods over rough terrain in a modified Jeep. Camping gear can be supplied including Tents, sleeping bags, mattress, very basic cooking equipment (an extra charge may apply at the discretion of the instructor). A more comfortable version using hotels near the park entrances can also be arranged.
The limited daylight hours offer superb light and Winter weather provides no shortage of drama. The nights offer superb opportunities for star or aurora photography.
