Embark on a full-day photography tour of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula with a local expert from Reykjavik, and see the diverse natural attractions of Iceland. The tour is perfect for photography lovers of various levels who'd want to take home amazing photos and memories of Iceland's natural beauty. 

The private tour begins in the comforts of your hotel in Selfoss or Reykjavik. Your tour operator will pick you up in a comfortable vehicle that will safely take you to the peninsula. 

For the tour, bring clothes suitable for the weather and comfortable and sturdy hiking shoes. Also, since this is a photography tour, bring your camera and a tripod if you have one. 

During the tour, you'll visit the best places in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, which consist of various terrains. You'll ride a 4x4 throughout the tour, which is perfect for exploring those. 

A professional photographer will go with you and assist you so you can take amazing pictures. Since you're visiting some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Iceland, your guide will ensure you get the best shots to remember them.

One of the stops in your Iceland photo tour is Snaefellsnes' geological wonder, the Gerduberg cliffs. The cliffs have columns shaped like hexagons lined up in a row. Make sure to take beautiful photos of the cliffs, as their features are rare in most parts of the world.

You'll also visit some famous beaches in the area, such as the Ytri Tunga beach, famous for its golden sand. Meanwhile, 30 miles (49 kilometers) away from Ytri Tunga is the black sand beach of Djupalonssandur.

The pride of Snaefellsnes, Snaefellsjokull glacier, is also part of the tour. This glacier is so massive that you can sometimes see it from Reykjavik. It's also a huge part of literature, inspiring the book, "Journey to the Center of the Earth." 

Since this is a photography tour, you'll also visit one of the most photographed places in Iceland, the Budir black church. The church's black color makes it stand out from its surrounding landscape, which includes a vast field, mountains, and the sky. 

During your photo exploration of Snaefellsnes, you'll also visit Arnarstapi fishing village. This charming village in the southern part of the peninsula consists of old buildings, is surrounded by mountains, and is near the coast.

In the northern part of the peninsula, you'll visit two more attractions, Mt. Kirkjufell and Selvallafoss, also known as the "Sheep's Waterfall."

Kirkjufell, a massive Icelandic mountain, has a uniquely shaped peak, making it a favorite subject in many photographs. Fans of the famous TV series Game of Thrones may recognize it as "Arrowhead Mountain."

Finally, you'll visit Selvallafoss waterfall, the peninsula's hidden gem. Aside from its beauty, the waterfall is also a favorite place for sheep grazing, thus its name.

The private tour ends when you return to your hotel in Reykjavik or Selfoss.
