Winter Iceland Dream Photo Tour
Join us for an epic winter adventure in Iceland to photograph other-worldly landscapes and chase the aurora!
Along with your experienced photo tour leader, Elia Locardi, we’ll explore the rugged beauty and natural wonders as we photograph from the far less touristed areas in the North, all the way down the ring road to the highlights of the Southeastern coast.
There is honestly no place on Earth quite like Iceland and no tour quite like this one!
Visiting Iceland in winter and exploring its many diverse landscapes truly feels like you’re exploring some distant alien world. Her beauty is awe-inspiring, and the word you’ll find yourself saying, again and again, is “Wow!” With its countless waterfalls, rugged mountainscapes, windswept valleys, fields of moss-covered lava rock, glacial lagoons, and black sand beaches–Iceland is truly a landscape photographer’s paradise.

Behind the Scenes and Participant Images
Our Fall Iceland Dream Photo Tour is one of the most other-worldly tours we offer. The landscapes you’ll shoot with us are probably unlike anything else you’ve previously photographed. The natural beauty of Reykjavik, Geysir, Gullfoss, Snaefellsnes Peninsula, South Iceland, lava fields, Skogafoss, Vík, Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon and Black Sand Beach will have you shooting images you’ve only seen pros publish in magazines. With our pro photographers’ guidance, you’ll be shooting everything from behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall to the Reykjavik rooftops. Here’s a small sample of some photography created by our participants on previous Fall Iceland Photo Tours.

Please do not make air travel arrangements until checking with us first.
While these descriptions represent the photo tour’s planned itinerary, we reserve the right to revise it without notice as we see fit. Details on this page are also subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to cancel the tour if the minimum number of participants is not met. And while we don’t anticipate this happening, we reserve the right to adjust the fees for this photo tour due to factors outside of our control, such as fluctuations in currency rates, political or governmental action, new applicable taxes, and related issues.

Participants are expected to be in fair health and be capable of spending the days walking around the various areas while carrying their own equipment and luggage.
We can never count on the weather patterns in Iceland. For this reason, we have our list of beautiful locations we’ll be going to, but we need to keep our schedule fluid, as we will be adapting to changing weather conditions on the ground.
