…as winter melts into spring
Follow the changes in Iceland’s dramatic landscapes, seas and skies as winter gives way to spring. Travel slowly to capture the essence of glaciers, waterfalls, mountains and coast including Icelandic classics such as the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, Golden Circle, Skógafoss and Stokksnes.
Time in Reykjavik to record the unique and quirky characteristics of a truly delightful small city, its harbours, architecture and surrounding mountains.
Perfect for competent photographers with an interest in landscapes and natural features. Travel with Julia and a private driver in a small photographic group in south-east Iceland and select from optional additional days into the Highlands by super-jeep or in and around Reykjavik.
Once you have booked, all you need to concentrate on is your own preparation for your photography. We take care of the rest – all the pre planning and the smooth running of the journey while we are in Iceland.

DAY 1: ARRIVAL DAY
On arrival at Keflavík Airport, we’ll take a late afternoon private transfer into Reykjavik and check in, after which you will be free to explore Iceland’s capital and make the most of the great photographic opportunities that there are there.
DAY 2: ICELAND’S SOUTH COAST
Lava fields, steaming geothermal springs and expansive coastlines await, plus classic waterfalls at Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Overnight in the countryside, and although it’s quite late in the season Northern Lights are still a possibility.
DAY 3: SOUTH EAST ICELAND
A day of glaciers, together with black sand, huge columnar basalt cliffs and the great outwash plains of Myrdalssandur. Overnight on the edge of the Vatnajökull National Park.
DAY 4: GLACIAL LAGOON and STOKKSNES
Focus on the icebergs, glaciers and black sand ‘diamond’ beach at Jökulsárlón together with the remote Stokksnes peninsula. Overnight on the edge of the Vatnajökull National Park
DAY 5: REMOTE and WILD
Alternatives today depend on the progress of spring in the Kirkjubaerjarklaustur area, where settlement, rivers, coast, glaciers and lava all offer plenty of photographic opportunities for the day. Overnight on the South Coast.
DAY 6: GOLDEN CIRCLE
The journey concludes today with a return to Reykjavik via Iceland’s spectacular collection of features that make up the ‘Golden Circle’: Gullfoss Waterfall, the geothermal area and geyser ‘Strokkur’ and the lake and rift area of the Thingvellir National Park. Overnight in Reykjavik.
DAY 7: RETURN HOME or HIGHLANDS or a DAY TO YOURSELF
If you are leaving today and depending on flight arrangements, make time for a walk with your camera before taking the transfer to the airport.
