West and South Iceland Photography Workshop
With Thor & Mike Mezeul II

* Single supplement adds $900 USD

Thor Photography and Mike Mezeul II are offering an adventure filled photography workshop in Iceland spanning 10 days and 9 nights, 

where we will be exploring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and the famous South Coast! Plus, we'll be taking a helicopter to an remote ice cave to document one of Iceland's most beautiful wintertime scenes.

The South Coast of Iceland needs no introduction, as it has been one of the 

most popular areas to visit and photography for many years, and for a good reason! The scenery is spectacular around every corner, from

waterfalls, to glaciers, black sand beaches and more! 

The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is however often described as a miniature Iceland as you can find most of the geological features Iceland has to offer in a relatively small area, such as colorful mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, amazing seascapes and not to mention the picturesque mountain,  Mt. Kirkjufell.

Travelling to Iceland:
You will want to fly into Keflavík ariport. From there we recommend using the flybus to get to the capitol, Reykjavík (about 40km). 
We recommend Flybus+ which will drop you off at the doorstep of our hotel in Reykjavík.

Physical Requirements:
This workshop will include some moderate hikes on uneven ground and loose gravel. We'll not take on any serious hikes. 

Where are we staying?
We will be lodging at a variety of hotels throughout our stay which are all conveniantly locatated in relation to our shooting locations, we begin and end in Reykjavík but we'll be staying at a great hotels throughout the workshop. 


  • Helicopter to a remote ice cave

  • Vík

  • Reynisdrangar

  • Black sand beaches

  • Glacier lagoon

  • Vestrahorn 

  • Kirkjufell

  • Seljalandsfoss

  • Skogafoss

  • and many other lesser known locations.

In a nutshell.

This workshop is covering some of the best parts in the Iceland like Snaefellsnes and the South Coast which holds byfar many of Iceland's most picturesque locations like Vik and the surrounding area, black sandy beaches, majestics waterfalls and more plus we'll be taking a helicopter to a remote ice cave. 
This time of year also marks the beginning of the Aurora season and we will be hunting them whenever the conditions will be favourable.
Since the weather can be quite changeable in Iceland we always take the weather into account when we decide what location we choose to shoot at any given time.

In November, we have sunrise around 9:30 am and sunset around 4:30 pm so good chance of soft golden light for the most part of the day which should allow for a great photography oportunities.

Day 1: Arrival Day

Upon arriving to Iceland, we suggest using the FlyBus service from Keflavik Airport to the host hotel. Taxis are also available near the terminal building.

The FlyBus service is located right outside the terminal building. Book online using the FlyBus Plus service which will drop you off at your hotel. You can book a round trip to take you back to the airport after the tour.

Book FlyBus online:

1. Visit

2. Choose the FlyBus+ service which will ask for your hotel information.

3. Pay online. 

Accommodation in Reykjavík


Days 2 & 3:

We leave Reykjavík early and head west to our first locations. The exact locations depend on weather conditions, but Snæfellsnes is packed with good location and the most famous of them all is probably Mt. Kirkjufell.

Accommodation in Snaefellsnes

Day 4: 

We'll either shoot sunrise before we leave the peninsula or leave early and head towards the south coast, depending on the weather and the conditions we might stay a bit longer and explore more of the peninsula.​

Accommodation in Vík area.


Day 5-6-7: 

Glacier lagoon will be our playground for the next few days. But before we get there we need to drive big part of the south coast so we will stop at hand picked location.
The Glacier lagoon area is probably one on the most famous places in Iceland with its floating icebergs. Just below the lagoon is the mystical diamond beach. On one of the days we are staying in this area we will visit Vestrahorn, a raw mountain with many compositional options like sand dunes, reflection and waves.
We plan to get an helichopter to bring us to an remote ice cave.

Accommodation in Glacier lagoon area.


Day 8: 

After shooting sunrise at the lagoon we will start to make our way west towards Vík where we will be photographing the stunning seascapes of Dyrhólaey and Reynisdrangar amongst other things.​

Accommodation in Vík area.

Day 9

This is our last day on the road. We will shoot a sunrise near Vik and then checkout of our hotel and start making our way back towards Reykjavík. We might stick around at the south coast and shoot sunset or drive towards Reykjanes peninsula and explore there a bit before we get back to Reykjavík.

Accommodation in Reykjavík.

Day 10: (Departure day)

This is your last day in Iceland. If you have time, you might want to enjoy a dip into the Blue Lagoon which is in the neighbourhood of Grindavík, before you head out towards Keflavik International Airport for the return flight to your country of stay, taking with you memories and photographs from an unforgettable adventure.
Again, we recommend using the FlyBus+
