Photography Day Tour at Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Based on 1 traveller reviews

Snap a treasured photo of the beautiful scenery in Iceland on this photography day tour. This tour is ideal for every level of enthusiast, from professionals looking to hone their craft to amateurs hoping to capture something special for their mantlepiece.

You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik, to go zooming off to Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This area of Iceland is surrounded by sea with amazing cliff formations, waterfalls and extreme lava fields.

The majestic volcanic peaks at the tip of the peninsula, which serve as the entrance to the netherworld in the classic novel Journey to the Center of the Earth by French author Jules Verne, provides a rugged backdrop to your photos.

You’ll tour the entire peninsula and take advantage of many beautiful attractions for potential photos. These locations include (but are not limited to): Mt. Kirkjufell, Arnarstapi, Djupalonssandur, Dritvik Bay, and more.

Kirkjufell is one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland, rising from the surrounding meadow with a distinctive shape. Nearby are fields full of grazing sheep or a scenic river and waterfall you can include in your photo. Your guide will help you get the perfect angle!

If you’d like to capture a still life or two, the combination of nature and human habitation at Arnastapi, a small fishing village at the foot of Mt. Stapafell, is perfect. There are plenty of austere cliffs which line the coasts, standing against the endless motion of the sea, but there are also harbor buildings gleaming white in the sun, with distinctive red roofs, and boats bobbing gently in the harbor. Capture them all!

Djupalonssandur is a gorgeous beach, full of rock formations, fields giving way to black sand and finally, the ocean waves. Dritvik Bay is another place where rocks and cliffs make interesting shapes, all the better for nature or landscape photography. It was once one of the largest fishing centers in Iceland, so look for ways to capture the beauty of this bygone era in the old boats and buildings found there.

Don’t miss this chance to take a timeless photo of the loveliest places in Iceland! Book your place now! Check availability by choosing a date.

The whole tour was super good. Our tour guide Bragi who is also a fantastic photographer showed us a lot of amazing sceneries and taught us techniques of how to take professional pictures. He is patient, funny, generous and super handsome! Definitely will choose him next time if we go to Iceland.
