Capture beautiful photos that are sure to get you extra many Likes and boost your social media profiles. Have you ever dreamed of capturing beautiful photos of powerful waterfalls, black sand beaches, glaciers, and the amazing Northern Lights? We can show you these fantastic sights. After being picked up at your accommodation, you will visit the black church in Búðir. This is a perfect photo location if you love minimalism in photography, thanks to the contrast of the black facade against the colours of the surrounding Icelandic landscape. Not far from Búðir lies another popular Instagram location: the charming village of Arnarstapi, with its sea cliffs and rock formations. There are a lot of platforms along the cliffs of Arnastapi from where you can take pictures of the cliffs and the waves crashing through lava arches. Walk around to find the perfect angle and make sure you have a tripod to take some fantastic long exposure shots. You will then continue through Snæfellsnes National Park where the mystical Snæfellsjökull can be found, the glacier mentioned in Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth.

The absolute highlight of the tour is the majestic Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland. Kirkjufell—the 'church mountain'—is a trendy photo location for Instagrammers and also one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones.  The features that make this mountain so unique are its conical shape and the small waterfall opposite the mountain, named Kirkjufellsfoss. By following a short path, you will be able to take the iconic shot of the waterfalls with Kirkjufell in the background. We will end our tour in charming Stykkishólmur, a picturesque town on the northern coast of the peninsula, where you will walk among colourful old Icelandic houses and take pictures of the famous red lighthouse overlooking the harbour before we head back to Reykjavík.

If you want the chance to photograph another world of untouched natural wonders, this professionally-guided workshop is the excursion for you.  Your adventure begins in Iceland’s capital, where you will meet your guides and the rest of your travel companions for a night out before boarding a plane to Constable Point the following day, spending the next week trailing through the pristine natural wonders of East Greenland.

Westfjords Wildlife Photography Adventure

Get to know the animals of Iceland on this wildlife photography excursion in the Westfjords. Any lovers of nature that want a chance to spot the likes of foxes, birds and whales should grab their opportunity now and book this exciting tour. Your adventure begins in the town of Ísafjörður, from where you will board a Super Jeep and head out into the open arms of nature. The Icelandic Westfjords are abundant with wildlife, and avid bird watchers will be thrilled to learn that approximately fifty species of bird call the area home during different seasons. These include Harlequin Ducks, Mallards, Northern Fulmars and Merlins, as well as the majestic White-tailed Eagle. Since this tour operates throughout the year upon request, remember to ask your guide which feathered fellows you are likely to encounter on your excursion. As for the critters that occupy the surface, your prime candidate for a wildlife photography portfolio that will render your friends green with envy is the Arctic Fox, but with some luck and patience, you are very likely to catch a glimpse of its bushy tail. The Arctic Fox is the only native land mammal of Iceland, but this extraordinary creature walked across the ocean’s ice sheet during the last Ice Age and made its home here long before the first settlers arrived at Iceland’s shores via their Viking ships. The foxes adapted to their surroundings over the centuries, so some of them will change their crimson or brown coats for a glistening white during the snowier seasons. Remember that capturing an Arctic Fox is one of the most challenging wildlife photography ventures there is, which means that it is all the more rewarding. Looking out to sea, chances are you might spot some curious seals, or even large whales, such as Fin Whales, Minke Whales or Orcas, feeding in the shallows of the fjords. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity of a guided wildlife photography tour in the Westfjords of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
