Tour description:

The central highlands in Iceland behold fantastic photo opportunities that has to be on every landscape photographers bucket list.

This photo tour is both physically challenging and at the same time mentally inspiring. We cover a lot of ground but we get to shoot all the major landscape scenes at the right time of the day for best lighting conditions. This journey should easily yield a portfolio of 50-100 really good photographs and 5-10 exceptional artworks. This is more of an expedition than photo tour/workshop. 10 days of travel with 4x4 vehicles through exceptional terrain.

Landmannalaugar is an active geothermal area with hot springs, bubbling mud pots and active volcanos. The scenery consist of colorful rhyolite mountain and recent lava with green moss. Rivers and a hot spring pool reflect this stunning landscape in a myriad of textures and tones.

We photograph Lake Myvatn and surrounding area. It has many different things to shoot. A picturesque lake with incredible rock formations. A field of lava from a recent eruption, lava caves, volcanos and Europe's most powerful waterfall.

The highlands are unpopulated and have very limited infrastructure. No hotels, restaurants or road shops. With 4x4's and local knowhow we can safely ford rivers and navigate the highland deserts. Accommodation is in guesthouses and heated highland cabins.
