During a new Iceland photography tour, enjoy an itinerary mainly focused on Arctic bird photography including 3 days at Grímsey Island in the Arctic Circle.
Featuring a wealth and wide variety of incredible photography opportunities, northeast Iceland is one of the best places on Earth to photograph cliff-dwelling birds such as colorful and comedic Atlantic puffins, razorbills, murres, gannets, fulmars, and many other seabirds.
At Grímsey we will be right on the Arctic Circle, spending time searching for and photographing nesting Arctic species and vagrants. As your group works east and northward from your starting point in Reykjavík, you will marvel at the beautiful sights at every turn. Only our Iceland photography tour shows you the best of Iceland’s birds with other marvelous sights such as volcanos and waterfalls.
Iceland – The Land of Fire and Ice – Photo tour and Workshop led by Ben Grunow and Shiv Verma. Ben is a fellow Panasonic Luminary and an exceptional photographer and ski instructor.
This is an experience for non-photographers and photographers alike. The country provides the opportunities to capture mighty glaciers, waterfalls and spouting geysers. Majestic mountains, magnificent coastlines and smoking volcanoes. September is the beginning of the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights.
Iceland is by far an ideal destination for viewing the Aurora Borealis. Its modern infrastructure and excellent location, midway between Europe and the United States and with direct flights, makes it ideal for the sighting of the Northern Lights.
In late winter Iceland is truly magical. As this workshop is scheduled for March and solar activity permitting we should have some opportunities for seeing and photographing the Aurora Borealis.
Please note: as the northern lights are natural phenomena, we cannot guarantee sightings.
On this tour, we will take you to the very best photography locations Iceland has to oﬀer. We will visit the many rugged volcanic landscapes, the iconic giant waterfalls, glacier lagoon, the black volcanic coastline.
