Photography in Iceland

Iceland is a photographer’s paradise, a land of mesmerising landscapes and infinitely interesting subjects, be they cascading waterfalls, creeping glaciers, jagged canyons or weatherbeaten coastlines.

With the explosion of photography’s popularity across the world, it is no wonder that Iceland is fast becoming one of the most photographed destinations on earth.

Photographers of all backgrounds, creeds and calibre visit Iceland each year to capture their experiences, travelling across the country in search of that ultimate shot. Be they Instagrammers, nature photographers or cultural shutterbugs, all visitors to Iceland will be immediately taken with the urge to document, frame and shoot their surroundings.

Photo tours and workshops in Iceland offer guests the opportunity to sharpen their skills behind the camera, acting under the tutelage of an experienced and knowledgeable guide.

Taking you to some of this country’s biggest attractions, as well as providing opportunities to capture such phenomena as the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun, your guide will ensure that you return home with a portfolio brimming with new contributions.

Photo tours and workshops can be concentrated to a single day with only a few attractions focused upon, or alternatively, can extend for up two weeks, allowing visitors every opportunity to maximise their photography in Iceland.

You may visit Iceland’s most photographed feature, Mt. Kirkjufell, most famously portrayed as “the mountain like an arrowhead” from HBO’s ‘Games of Thrones’. Alternatively, you could spend time at “the Crown Jewel of Iceland”, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, photographing the hundreds of icebergs that float peacefully on the still surface.

Another option could be spending some time in Iceland’s picturesque capital city, Reykjavík, photographing the abundance of iconic cultural landmarks, including the likes of Hallgrímskirkja church and Harpa Concert Hall.

Whatever you choose, you’re sure to collect a wealth of interesting photographs that will forever bring you back to Iceland.
