Around Iceland Winter Photo Workshop
The Around Iceland Winter Photo Workshop is one of Skarpi’s specialities. He has been running this Workshop for many years, and knows every hidden gem on the road around Iceland..
The frozen waterfalls, beautiful Ice Caves, Glaciers & frozen Lagoons, and Northern Lights – Aurora Borealis – make Iceland a truly fascinating Winter location for stunning photography. The tour leaves from Reykjavik & visits the favourite locations around Iceland.
Some locations can only be accessed with a modified 4×4 vehicle. Chosen locations around Iceland are known as the world’s best areas to photograph Auroras.
Day one – Arrival
Arrive at Keflavík International Airport & transfer to your hotel in Reykjavík. If you arrive early, you can photograph Reykjavik features such as Harpa Concert Hall, Hallgrimskirkja, Sun Voyager & Perlan.
In the evening we discuss the workshop plan over an Icelandic meal.
Day two – Þingvellir – Vík
We start early with a one hour drive to Thingvellir National Park. Here we can start our photography in Iceland’s national park.
From Thingvellir, we drive to the most Southerly part of Iceland, Vik, which has many famous waterfalls and dramatic seascapes in the country, such as Seljalandsfoss & Skogafoss. We also explore the black beach of Reynisfjara with great opportunities for seascape photography including the sea stacks (Reynisdrangar ) and Dyrholaey rock arch.
We will stay overnight in the old village of Vik
Day three & four – Vatnajokull
We drive East to the glacier area of Vatnajokull after our morning shoot in Vik. We lodge in a remote 3 star hotel with glacier views and just about 10 miles from the Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon.
Over the next couple of days, we explore and photograph glaciers from all angles. We even travel under the glacier to a crystal ice cave. We visit other glacial lagoons in the are such as Fjallsarlon. We visit Vestrahorn mountain & a variety of photo locations. The abundance of high quality locations enable us to move around with the weather. In every direction we can find an excellent photography subjects.
If Auroras decide to make an appearance, our choice of landscapes is endless.
Day five – East Fjords
We have been to Stokknes & captured Vestrahorn mountain. Now we continue along the inviting East coast and stop at the jagged coastal mountain of Eystrahorn. As we drive deeper into the East fjords, we will stop at lesser known locations. We stay at a hotel in a tiny, charming fishing village.
On the journey we my stop to photograph the roads winding around the steep terraced mountains. Countless waterfalls dot the landscape. The East fjords are quiet in winter, so you might feel like we are alone on the island, except meeting a few reindeer and some farmers.
Day six-eight – Mývatn
From the East fishing village, we drive to Lake Myvatn, which is a Winter paradise in North Iceland. We photograph amazing Winter features such as horses and turf houses on our way to Myvatn. We travel to the powerful waterfall at Dettifoss. After photographing sunset at the waterfall, we check in our hotel in Myvatn.
We stay at our Myvatn hotel for he next 3 nights. Each day/night we explore new locations. If we have spare time in the Myvatn area, we can soak in the Myvatn Nature Baths to charge our batteries for the next photo location.
We will photograph the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, including Goðafoss, Aldeyjarfoss and Hrafnabjargafoss. These waterfalls are amazing in the Winter light, and difficult for most tourists to get to.
The Myvatn lake rests firmly on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, so most of the photogenic sights are volcanic or geothermal in nature. The last eruption in Myvatn area was September 1984 in Krafla volcano.
The Myvatn area in North of Iceland is great for Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and night photography as there is no light pollution. There are good reflections on the lake and interesting volcanic shapes.
Day nine – Myvatn – North Coast
We will have a farewell breakfast at the Myvatn hotel and head to the North coast and drive towards Reykjavik. We can make photo stops in lesser known areas depending on the weather.
We will make a short stop of interest in the second largest city in Iceland, Akureyri. This capital of the North is home to 20.000.- people. Then we return to the road and photograph Hraundrangi, a picturesque mountain peak just 20 minutes from Akureyri.
Then we head to Skagafjörður, a Northern fjord with great photo opportunities, such as basalt columns and beautiful coastlines.
Our hotel is located as it is only 30 minutes from the drinking dragon at Hvítserkur – also a well-known seal area.
Day ten – Laugarbakki
We shoot the sunrise at Hvítserkur, a 40 foot high sea-stack. Legends say that Hvítserkur is a troll turned to stone, although geologists say that is a volcanic plug from the long time ago. It is an amazing photo opportunity regardless of the truth.
We drive South towards Reykjavik and make a few interesting stops at waterfalls. West Iceland is famous for beautiful waterfalls, river fishing and Norse Sagas. We always try to stop to photograph Icelandic Horses before arriving at our Reykjavik hotel.
In Reykjavik, we will enjoy farewell dinner together. If you want to stay in Iceland a bit longer, we can offer you a photography day tours to areas we did not visit on this workshop.

Day 1 – Arrival
Arrive at Keflavík International Airport. We give you with a Flybus transfer ticket which will take you directly to your Reykjavik hotel. You could relax for the rest of the day, or explore the most Northerly city in the world.
Over an Icelandic, evening meal, you will get to know each other and meet your guides. We show you the plan for the upcoming workshop over the course of the evening.
Day two: Vik
On day two, we take you to some amazing shooting locations on the South Coast of Iceland.
We stop first at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It is possible to walk behind this 60-metre waterfall allowing for endless compositions. Then we drive to Skógafoss waterfall. This waterfall has a classic shape, but more powerful than Seljalandsfoss. Already you will be capturing the incredible forces in the Icelandic nature.
After you have photographed these waterfalls from many different angles, we drive you for the sunset on the black-sand-beach at Reynisfjara. Reynisfjara is an amazing black beach with dramatic geology. Photograph the Reynisdrangar sea-stacks while the restless ocean pounds the black beach. The Dyrhólaey rock-arch and cliffs with basalt columns are nearby waiting to be photographed.
We stay the night in the quiet Vik village. This evening at Vik could be your first chance to photograph Auroras.
Day three: Vatnajokull
On the 3rd day, we continue to drive the rest of the South Coast to photograph incredible natural locations in Iceland’s South-East.
We venture on to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The famous lagoon has super icebergs the size of buses. These mini icebergs slowly reduce in size before they escape to the ocean. There are also many seals that live in the lagoon – a treat for wildlife photographers.
At sunset, we make our way down to the Diamond Beach, where crystal ice washes up on the black sand beach. There are fantastic photo opportunities with the blue ice contrasting with the black sands and ocean spray. These glacier features also work well for Aurora photography.
We spend the night close to Jökulsárlón.
Day four Vatnajokull
On day four, we return to the ice beach for some morning light. Then we take you under the glacier to a crystal blue ice cave. The ice caves are only safely accessible Mid – Winter. Entering an ice cave is a memorable and truly incredible adventure. Assistance from our professional photo-guides will make your ice cave experience a successful photographic endeavour.
After capturing the incredible blues in the ice cave, we head off to photograph more great photography locations in the Vatnjökull area. The choice of locations will depend on conditions.
We could drive you to Fjallsárlón glacier lagoon. This a less visited lagoon with lower chances of having crowds of tourists. At Fjallsarlon, you can get closer to the glacier tongue.
We hope to finish the day at Jökulsárlón and Ice Beach to capture some Auroras above them.
Day five: Vatnajokull
We start the day with a sunrise on the ice beach. If conditions are good we will go to Iceland’s famous mountain landscape at Vestrahorn for the afternoon. This location is rich with tussock foregrounds and the reflective black sand near the ocean. The mountain looks fantastic in Winter afternoon light.
We will also use the day to explore less well known photo locations in the region, where you can photograph the south-east in its winter colours including Vatnajökull glacier and the surrounding glacier landscapes.
We hope to be able to hunt auroras before retiring for one more night near Jökulsarlon.
Day six: Skaftafell – Vik
On the 6th day, we stop at Skaftafell Nature Reserve as we leave the Vatnjökull region. Skaftafell was its own National Park but has become part of the Vatnajökull National Park. The area contains the diverse features that make Iceland so popular with photographers. Here you can photograph glacier tongues and lagoons, waterfalls, mountains and volcanoes. We stop for several hours so you can photograph them all.
After photographing this fantastic location, we head back along the South Coast to Vik. Here we could have another chance to photograph Northern lights before staying the night in the picturesque village.
Day seven: Geysir – Gullfoss – Thingvellir
On this day we visit some of Iceland’s National treasures. The geothermal zone at Geysir will give you a chance to capture the eruption Strokkur Geysir. Strokkur is the younger brother of Geysir and erupts every 5 – 10 minutes. This should give you many chances to perfect your photography skills. The next stop is Gullfoss. This is Iceland’s biggest waterfall complex as thousands of liters of glacier melt water cascades over multiple tiers into a deep canyon. We then make a stop at Thingvellir National park which is a UNESCO site. Here there are many fantastic photo features such as the waterfall at Öxararfoss and the tectonic plates where the continents are slowly drifting apart.
We return to Reykjavik and over our evening meal in Reykjavik, you can share your new photography collection with each other.

We will stay overnight in the small village of Vik.
Day three & four – Vatnajokull
Soon after breakfast, you will have the chance to photograph the sunrise on the diamond Beach near Jokulsarlon. We will capture the Vatnjokull area with plenty of photo locations to choose from over the next couple of days. Our hotel is close to Jokulsarlon so when the sky is clear and Aurora is active we shoot the Northern Lights dancing over the lagoon. We will enter two ice caves on the tour at least. The best available ice caves are deep under the Vatnajökull glacier. We will provide you with all safety gear such as helmets and crampons.
Day five – Hofn Vestrahorn
Vestrahorn mountain is a 454 meter peak with fascinating geology. To the East is Brunnahorn (Batman Mountain) stretching out to sea. Vestrahorn is a fantastic photography subject with a vast choice of interesting foregrounds from the sand tussocks to the rocky coastline. In Winter we often get amazing light on the mountain face.
Day six – Skaftafell – Vik
We visit Skaftafell twice. Once on our way to the south-east and again on the drive back. We’ll photograph some of the fantastic landscapes and include a sunset. The whole Skaftafell area has incredible views such as the glaciers and Iceland’s highest mountains. Waterfalls such as Svartifoss can be photographed in the park.

Day 1 – Arrival
Arrive at Keflavík International Airport we provide you with a Flybus ticket which will take you to your hotel in Reykjavík. You can relax until the evening, or explore the most Northerly capital city.
In the evening you will meet your guides and get to know each other. We discuss the plan for the next eleven days over an Icelandic meal.
Day two: Vik
On day two, we take you to your first shooting locations along Iceland’s South Coast.
First stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This 60-metre waterfall is possible to walk behind allowing for infinite compositions. The next stop is Skógafoss. Skogafoss has a classic shape, but much more powerful. Capture the powerful forces in the Icelandic nature.
After you have captured these waterfalls from every possible angle, we take you to the black-sand-beach at Reynisfjara for the sunset. Reynisfjara is an incredible beach of dramatic contrasts. You can photograph the Reynisdrangar sea-stacks, volcanic cores from many millennia before while the relentless waves pound the black sands. Nearby are the Dyrhólaey rock-arch and cliffs with basalt columns waiting to be photographed.
We stay the night in the quaint village of Vík. The evening at Vik could be your first opportunity to photograph the Northern Lights.
Day three: Vatnajokull
On the 3rd day, we continue to drive the rest of the South Coast to reach three top photo locations in Iceland’s south-east.
First is Skaftafell Nature Reserve – once its own National Park but now part of the larger Vatnajökull National Park. The area contains the diverse features that make Iceland so popular with photographers. Here you can photograph glacier tongues and lagoons, mountains and volcanoes. We stop here for several hours to give you a chance to capture them all.
Afterwards we venture on to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The lake is filled with massive icebergs the size of houses. The huge icebergs gradually melt before they make their way through to the ocean. There are also many seals that live in the lagoon.
At sunset, we make our way down to the Diamond Beach, where the ice washed up on the black sand beach. Contrasts between the blue ice and black sands give you fantastic photo opportunities. These locations work very well for Northern lights photography.
We retire for the night in the Jökulsárlón area.
Day four Vatnajokull
On day four, we take you to visit a crystal blue ice cave. The ice caves are only safely accessible for a few months of the Winter. Enter an ice cave under the glacier is an extraordinary and truly memorable experience. Help from our professional photo-guides will make your experience a great photographic success.
After photographing the amazing textures in the ice cave, we continue to photograph the sites of the Vatnjökull region. Locations will be decided depending on conditions.
We could drive to one of Iceland’s best beach mountain combination at Vestrahorn. This location is loaded with sand dune foregrounds and the ocean with reflective black sands.
We might take you to Fjallsárlón – a less well known glacier lagoon. Here you will be closer to the glacier tongue, and are less likely to have crowds of tourists in your shots.
Hopefully we finish the day back at Jökulsárlón and the Diamond Beach to photograph the Northern Light displays above them.
Day five: Vatnajokull
On the 5th day we revisit some locations that may have been neglected or that will appear better or different with alternative weather or light. Skaftafell, Jökulsárlón, Fjallsárlón, the Diamond Beach and Vestrahorn could be revisited.
We will also use the opportunity to take you to less well known photo locations in the area, where you can photograph the south-east in its winter colours including Vatnajökull glacier.
We hopefully have a chance to hunt for the Northern lights before retiring for our final night in the South East.
Day six: East Fjords
On the 6th day, we drive through the untouched East Fjords of Iceland. This part of Iceland is so quiet that seeing crowds of tourists is unlikely.
The photo locations are as diverse as the picturesque fjords. There are interesting seascapes, mountains and small fishing villages with many hundreds of years of history. Seals and reindeer are common in this region for the budding wildlife photographers.
We make plenty of stops up and down the fjords as we travel North. Our final destination for the day is Egilsstaðir, the largest town in East Iceland. If the forecast is good, we will try and shoot Northern lights over the lake Lagarfljót or around Iceland’s largest birch forest.
Day seven: Myvatn
We travel to North Iceland to the Lake Mývatn region. There are many interesting location along the way to stop at and photograph. We might be able to get to Europe’s most powerful waterfall at Dettifoss.
Nearby Dettifoss are Selfoss and Hafragilsfoss, two other impressive waterfalls. We hope to get to Mývatn for sunset. There are many great locations to visit and photograph in the area. We have two days to explore them. On this evening we find a good spot on the lake for photographing Northern Lights.
Day eight: Myvatn
We spend Day eight photographing the Lake Mývatn area. The volcanic lake has some bizarre geology with basalt stacks in the water, and the unusual moss balls make the area quite unique in the world.
Fans of the hit TV series, Game of Thrones will enjoy photographing Jon Snow and Ygritte’s love scene location in the hot-spring cave at Grjótagjá and Mance Rayder’s Wildling Camp at the ‘lava fortress’ of Dimmuborgir. .
We also spend some time photographing the geothermal areas at Mnt. Námaskarð, and Iceland’s volcanic landscapes with pseudo-craters and lava forms.
Iceland’s lake Mývatn is an incredible place in Winter because of the variety of features. It is also an great place for photographing auroras due to its Northern latitude.
Day nine: Myvatn
We explore other parts of North Iceland on the 9th day. The incredible Northern fjords with its picturesque towns and villages. The Tröllskagi Peninsula boasts the most beautiful mountains in Iceland.
We visit the Goðafoss and Aldeyjarfoss waterfalls. Godafoss waterfall is scenically beautiful with an interesting history. Iceland marked its departure from the old Norse religion for Christianity when the Godi tossed his pagan idols of the old gods into the waterfall. Aldeyjarfoss waterfall has some amazing geology, and is very beautiful when it’s covered in snow and ice.
We then head back to lake Mývatn for the sunset.
Day ten: Myvatn to Reykjavik
This is the final full day of this winter around Iceland photo workshop. But we still have plenty of new photography locations to visit.
This is a day of driving as we complete the full circle back to Reykjavík, but with numerous stops. We explore the volcanic rock of Hvítserkur, which stands in shallow coastal waters. It looks like a troll or drinking dragon.
As we travel through Icelandic farmland we can stop and photograph the beautiful Icelandic horse; these horses are very friendly and can easily be photographed as they interact with us. Icelandic horses are very hardy animals as they survive the Winter outdoors.
If there is enough time we can visit the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. Also the hot spring at Deildartunguhver and Reykholt and Borgarnes historical towns.
After a final evening meal in Reykjavik, you can show off your new collection of photographs to each other.
Day eleven: Departure Day
Use the Flybus ticket to transfer back to Keflavík airport for your trip home. If you have a later flight, you can use your new photography skills to take photos around Reykjavík to add to your portfolio of Winter in Iceland.
