Iceland’s volcanic Reykjanes peninsula has a variety of geothermal features and a great coastline.
The Reykjanes peninsula has a magical atmosphere where black sand beaches and ancient lava fields covered with moss can be photographed. There are plentiful birds in the Summer near the cliffs so this area offers great variety for photographers. In good weather the peninsula is great for sunsets and in the Winter is fantastic for hunting the Northern lights. Join this photography day tour to the rough landscapes of Reykjanes with a professional guide who can assist you with your photography.
