In a nutshell

On this 8 day adventure with Nick Page and Thor we will be travelling in Iceland but unlike most regular workshops we will not have a set itinerary. This tour is lightweight and agile. The main driving force behind our itinerary will be the Icelandic weather forecast. We can go anywhere, any time!

Dates are set just after the summer solstice so midnight sun is something you‘ll experience during your stay. At this time, it will not get dark so our main shooting time will be very late evening through to the early morning. We will reverse our sleeping cycle and rest during midday.

By reversing the hours, we gain two very important things; much better light and locations without the crowds. This will ensure you get the best shot possible. We can be photographing the most popular locations in Iceland and have the entire place to ourselves.

Our tentative plan is to do the ring road with possible visits into the highland, however the main driving force behind our itinerary will be the Icelandic weather forecast.

This workshop is covering some of the best areas in the Iceland, but since the weather can be changeable in Iceland we try our best to keep one step ahead and plan our locations accordingly.


In this workshop we will be travelling in two 4x4 cars (mini van and SUV) and the group is limited to 10 clients, which gives us the freedom to be very flexible.

Physical Requirements:

This workshop will include some moderate hikes on uneven ground and loose gravel. We'll not take on any serious hikes but getting to a little bit elevated view in the highlands is very rewarding and gives you a great and unique perspective.
