Incredible Iceland 2018

24th February 2018 to 1st March 2018

Tour Itinerary

Iceland, North Atlantic.

DAY 1: HRAUNFOSSAR WATERFALLS, HVALFJORDUR BAY, THINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK.

Haukur Snorrason and Apratim Saha will pick you up at your hotel in Reykjavik around 7.30 AM starting by going west to one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland to photograph, called Hraunfossar with its many sections. This area is also good to photograph horses. We will stop at a well-hidden waterfall few people get to see once we get into south Iceland. We finish our day in Thingvellir national Park with is lava crevasses and crystal clear water. In the evening, we will keep out a Northern lights watch.

DAY 2: FIRST LIGHT AT GEYSIR AREA, SOUTH COAST AND WATERFALLS.

If we are lucky and weather conditions allow us, we will hope to catch the sunrise this morning at Strokkur spauting hot spring. Strokkur Is the only spouting hot spring in Iceland. It can be fun to try photographing the bulb before it spouts 20 meter up into the sky. We will then have breakfast and check out and head towards the south coast of Iceland where we come across great waterfalls. Dyrhólaey headlands is a stop among other interesting things that may come our way to Hrifunes, it depends on light and weather what we do this day since we go back through the south coast on last day.

DAY 3: VATNAJÖKULL GLACIER NATIONAL PARK. GLACIER LAGOON. ICE BERGS ON THE BEACH.

We check out from our cosy Hrifunes guesthouse and head towards Vatnajökull National Park. The largest glacier in Europe. Once there we will photograph Svínafellsjökull glacier outlet and of course the famous Jökuslárlón or the Glacier Lagoon plus many other spots on our way.
We aim for a sunset on the beach where the Atlantic Ocean floods around the sitting Icebergs on the black sand beach.

DAY 4: ICE CAVES !

Just after breakfast we will meet up with our glacier guide (who comes from the most experienced company in the area. The Ice caves are a natural amazing phenomenon that form in early winter and melt down each spring. Then next winter you have a completely new ice cave, so we never know what to expect year to year, but we always hope for the amazing texture and the Turkish blue colour. In the past few years Ice cave visits have become very popular, not only by photographers but by all travellers. This means it’s getting harder for photographers to set up their tripods and photograph to their likings. We therefore hire a glacier guide for most of the day which allows us to go to the best Ice cave available at the time and wait out other groups if needed – since we will have more time than others to spend in the caves. Going to the best Ice cave can possibly involve some hiking to get to these caves, which is approximately 2-3 km away.

DAY 5: ICE BERGS, GLACIER OUTLETS.

We start the day at first light on the black sand beach where we find Ice bergs lying on the black sand beach, so called Diamond beach and hope for a sunrise over the icebergs. But we have also many other places to photograph like Fjallsárlagoon glacier outlet, the Laki lava field, Lómagnúpur mountain and more importantly; all the no name places that are interesting to photograph.

DAY 6. FIRST LIGHT AT REYNISDRANGAR SEA STACKS. SKÓGAFOSS AND GLUGGAFOSS WATERFALLS.

We take an early breakfast to make it to the coast and photograph the sea stacks at Reynisfjara beach at sunrise. At this time of year the sun rises right behind the sea stacks ! We will photograph at the cliffs at Dyrhólaey, Skógafoss and Gluggafoss waterfalls. Estimated arrival in Reykjavik around 5 PM.
