Explore the West Iceland Winter Photography tour day-by-day

  1. Day 1 Arrival day

    Arrival at Keflavík International Airport. We arrange the transfer to your hotel. We meet up, have an introduction dinner together and discuss the upcoming trip.

  2. Day 2 Reykjavík - Hvalfjördur - Húsafell

    After we leave Reykjavík, we head north towards Hvalfjörður. We will be making stops at 2 picturesque waterfalls when driving around this beautiful fjord. After driving around the fjord, we drive towards the Borgarfjörður area and our final stop in Húsafell. Along the way we visit the beautifully detailed Hraunfossar waterfall. Depending on the weather conditions and solar activity during the night we will try to photograph the Northern Lights. Overnight stay in the Húsafell area.

  3. Day 3 Húsafell - Grundarfjörður

    Today we drive from the Húsafell area towards the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Along the way we will make stops at Deildartunguhver and Gerðuberg among others. We want to make sure to get to our final destination for this day, Grundarfjörður and Kirkjufell, in time for sunset. Kirkjufell is one of the world's most photographed mountains and with good reason. The cone-shaped mountain, nearby lake and waterfalls make for a very surreal landscape. Depending on the weather conditions and solar activity during the night we will try to photograph the Northern Lights. Overnight stay in the Grundarfjörður area.

  4. Day 4 Snæfellsnes Peninsula

    This third day has a packed schedule. First of all we will try to capture first light at Kirkjufell. After this we will continue our trip along the coastline towards the west, where we will photograph the dramatic cliff sides at Svörtuloft. Continuing on we make stops at the beach of Djúpalonssandur, the Lóndrangar sea stacks and the villages of Hellnar and Arnarstapi with their oddly shaped coastlines. Finally we head towards the black church of Búðir. Depending on the weather conditions and solar activity during the night we will try to photograph the Northern Lights. Overnight stay in the Grundarfjörður area.

  5. Day 5 Grundarfjörður - Þórsmörk

    We leave the beautiful Snæfellsnes peninsula behind us today and travel south towards the Golden Circle. Instead of stopping at the major highlights, we make halt at some of the lesser frequented places along the Golden Circle, like Þórufoss, Brúarfoss, Faxafoss and Urriðafoss. Afterwards we drive towards Seljalandsfoss and take a 4x4 road into the Þórsmörk area. Depending on the weather conditions and solar activity during the night we will try to photograph the Northern Lights. Overnight stay at the Volcano Huts in Þórsmörk.

  6. Day 6 Þórsmörk

    On this second to last day, we will further explore the þórsmörk area. When everything is covered in snow, we will be using snowshoes. Þórsmörk has one of Iceland’s most dynamic and beautiful landscapes, where active volcanoes and towering glaciers rise above the lush valleys below. There are a lot of great photo opportunities to be found here, especially during the soft winter light. Returning to the Volcano Huts, you will find the sauna waiting where you can relax or grab a cup of coffee while browsing through the photos you made during the past days. Depending on the weather conditions and solar activity during the night we will try to photograph the Northern Lights. Overnight stay at the Volcano Huts in Þórsmörk.

  7. Day 7 Þórsmörk - Reykjavík
