Golden Snæfellsnes

Golden Snæfellsnes

Feel the gigantic force of Europe’s largest waterfall and freeze erupting geysers with a fast shutter. Hike some pre-historic landscapes, sea cliffs and then stay in a fishing village waiting for auroras with a good meal and steam bath. Not to mention the craziest lava field in Iceland. This 2 day photo tour combines the famous Golden Circle with our popular Snæfellsnes Peninsular tour. The idea is to have a night near a top photo location (Kirkjufellsfoss – Church Mountain Waterfall) in case the clouds clear during an Aurora storm (auroras from Sept-March).

Snæfellsnes Photo Tour


Golden circle photo trip

The first leg allows you to explore some of Iceland’s natural highlights at a relaxed pace. You will have plenty of time to properly explore areas such as the great Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall and the National park at Þingvellir.

After a drive through some interesting scenery, we arrive at our hotel on Snæfellsnes. The evening of our Snæfellsnes trip has the chance of Northern Lights at a top Snæfellsnes location.

Our photo holiday catches Sunrise on the Kirkjufell mountain and after breakfast make our way around the Snæfellsnes peninsular photographing landscapes and little fishing villages.

We arrive back in Reykjavik at the end of the second day. This trip can easily be extended to 3 or 4 days for a more relaxed pace.
