From Reykjavik we drive through the Hvalfjörður tunnel and after stopping at Borgarnes for refreshments, we head to the wild west. The Snæfellsness Peninsular hosts some of Iceland’s oldest inactive volcanoes including the endangered Snæfellsjökull. There are many lava fields and volcanic craters scattered around the most beautiful mountain range in Iceland.

Seasons: Running all year round.

Locations:

This Iceland photo tour takes you to some remote places. The main selling point of the Snæfellsness peninsular is the incredible coastline. Catch the waves at the right time and you are guaranteed great looking photographs.

Coastlines

Some of our favourite coastlines are on the Snæfellsness Peninsular. Knowing the best view points can really help you get the shot right first time. These cliffs are also home to a wide variety of seabirds, such as kitty-wakes and guillemots and the occasional puffin. There are some amazing local restaurants in the coastal towns, plenty of chance to try some local food.

Kirkjufellsfoss
Our main stop, so the tour will try to be here for the sunset. This fascinating waterfall complex has 2 levels and a wide variety of access points. The challenge is to include the Church mountain (Kirkjufell) in your scene.

What do I need to bring

Camera gear:
For creative photography, we recommend most DSLRs and new Mirror less cameras. 

We recommend an ND filter and polariser.  

Typically we will be shooting landscapes, so a quality wide angle is important. 

A good quality Sturdy tripod is essential for serious landscape.

A telephoto lens 70-200 is also very useful.

Clothing:
Are you used to cold weather?  If we are shooting Aurora at night we may be standing still in sub-zero temperatures.  It is essential that you prepare your clothes carefully and expect the worst conditions - expect Arctic conditions.  The correct way to dress is to have suitable layers of clothing, so that layers can be added or removed accordingly.

you can expect temperatures between 12 c and -12 c
  •     Layers of clothing, for example, thermal-shirt, fleece, jacket, long-johns, trousers (not jeans!!), rain jacket and trousers.
  •     Good shoes/boots for light hiking (water proof is best), wool socks.
