What will I see?
We do not have any fixed itinerary for our tours, Why?
We like to be flexible and choose the best locations based on conditions. The light, time of year and the weather are critical componenets in providing our customers with the best photographic opportunities.
But we will of course do our absolute best to meet your needs and requests and do everything in our power to make your plans work out.
Below are some of the attractions we might visit on this tour, amongst many other fascinating locations
When travelling along the south coast we will visit some of Iceland‘s majestics waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is an iconic waterfall, dropping 60 meters (200ft) and you can witness its power first hand taking a footpath behind it.
This is one of the biggest waterfall in Iceland with a drop of around 60 m and width of 25 m. Due to its massive water spray a rainbow often hovers above on sunny days, If Lady Luck joins our tour a double rainbow will appear and on moonlit nights you can occasionally witness a moonbow.
Saturday November 24 in 1973 a military version of a DC-3 (Dakota) US Navy plane crashed on Sólheimasandur, a black sandy beach. This location offers great photo opportunities in all kinds of weather. This is a dramatic foreground for the late night bright summer skies and the dancing northern lights in winter.
Recently the road to the wreck has been closed down by the landowners but it is still accessible by foot. (4.1 km each way)
The best time to see and come up close to the Atlantic puffins is at the start of the breeding season in early May until mid and sometimes late August when they leave for their winter habitat of the cold open northern seas. These colourful majestic birds make for beautiful models with very dramatic backdrops of sheer cliff faces and the precarious Atlantic Ocean
Close to Vík í Mýrdal, a small coastal village, Reynisdrangar rise from the sea. These basalt rock formations, nestling beaneath Reynisfjall Mountain are, according to legend, two trolls who were turned into stone, when their plan of pulling a three mast ship ashore took too long and the sun rose earlier than they expected, leaving them standing there for eternity.
The black sandy beach with these stacks in the backdrop is one of the most fachinating and treacherous beach in Iceland.
