Experience a fantastic full-day Golden Circle photography tour with a professional photographer from Reyjavik. This Icelandic photo tour is ideal for those who want to capture Insta-worthy shots, professional pictures for their portfolio, or stunning photos to keep in their photo album from their vacation.

Your day begins when your professional photographer guide picks you up at a pre-agreed meeting point. Then it’s time to ride in style across the Icelandic roads in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle while soaking up the gorgeous landscapes.

Your Icelandic photo guide and professional photographer has ample knowledge of the best scenery and photo locations, plus tips for beginner photographers. Today’s photo spots require a short walk from the parking spot to get the perfect picture. 

During this full-day tour, you’ll stop at the Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall, Faxi waterfall, and Kerid crater, all magnificent photo spots.

The tour begins at Thingvellir National Park. This UNESCO site is northeast of your starting point in Reykjavik. Here you can capture breathtaking photos between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, a spectacular landscape of crevasses, broad valleys, and rock formations.

The next stop on your Golden Circle tour is Gullfoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the entire country. This waterfall is in Southwest Iceland in a canyon of the Hvita river.

Next, your group will continue to the Geysir geothermal area, where you’ll marvel at the famous Strokkur geyser. This otherworldly natural feature offers a superb opportunity for excellent photos. You’ll also be able to capture shots of boiling mud pits and steaming fumaroles.

This photo tour lets you discover Iceland’s essential sites and best-kept secrets. After checking off the much-loved Golden Circle attractions, you’ll visit the lesser-known Faxi waterfall. 

The Faxi waterfall is a wide and calm waterfall on the Tungufljot River. It offers a peaceful contrast to the ever-busy Golden Circle.

The final stop on this Iceland sightseeing tour is the Kerid crater. This crater is close to the Golden Circle and is the ideal last stop-off point before heading back to Reykjavik. As you walk up to the top and peer down into the turquoise lake inside, you’ll be glad you didn’t miss this photo opportunity!

Once you have seen Iceland’s Golden Circle plus some additional bonus attractions, the driver will take you back to Reykjavik. Your photos from today’s adventure offer you the perfect lifelong memories of your time in Iceland.

Don’t miss the chance to see unforgettable scenery, waterfalls, breathtaking geysers, and ancient craters during this full-day photography tour of the Golden Circle. Check availability now by choosing a date.
