-- Capture the colours - Laugavegur Photography Tour --

Do you want to photograph Icelandic nature?

Are you looking for a refreshing Super Jeep drive in Iceland‘s corourful highlands?

Then this is the tour for you! Our aim is for you to get the perfect shots, visiting various locations with a local guide leading you to the highlands most scenic spots.

We begin our Super Jeep photography tour by driving towards the legendary volcano Hekla, or as some label “The Gateway to Hell”. From there we continue onwards through Dómadalur valley, which leads us to Frostastaðavatn and Ljótipollur. Only a few minutes away is one of our most impressive stops, Landmannalaugar. This area is one of Iceland’s most beautiful gems with its colourful rhyolite mountains and geothermal bathing pool bordered by steep black lava fields.

After gathering our tripods, we jump back into our super jeep to head towards the famous Laugavegur trail. In Reykjadalir valley we get great photo oportunites surrounded by this captivating geothermal area. Then as we head on to road 1 we see yet another change in the landscape; we see the glaciers start to emerge. This is a stunning view you don't want to miss! As we arrive at Emstrur hut we encounter the three glaciers; Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull. These magnificent ice sheets make the perfect panoramic shot!

Now our journey draws to an end. We better hope for some space left on our memory cards as we take our final pictures of Eyjafjallajökull and Þórsmörk valley, as seen from the west side of Markarfljótsgljúfur.

So, if you‘re looking for a tour that combines a thrilling Super Jeep drive, close encounter with Icelandic nature and enaugh time to ‘Capture the colours‘, leaving you with a diverse range of stunning photos. Then this is the tour for you!

Note: The F roads will lead us directly through the Laugavegur trail itself and in parts a few miles away from it.
