Iceland Photo Tours during all year

Do you doubt when to travel to Iceland? As specialists in photography trips to Iceland, we can suggest the best season for your photo tour. Also, we have prepared different routes to discover the island of ice & fire. You can enjoy the beauty of Iceland during summer, autumn, or winter

Best season to visit

What do you want to see on your trip to Iceland? White nights or Northern Lights? Wildlife or snowy landscapes? Iceland can be enjoyed all year, but each season has different things to do during the day.

During the summer, you can enjoy beautiful nature and wildlife. Also, the midnight sun will bring you more hours to visit the island. you will get the perfect light during sunrises & sunsets to capture beautiful pictures with your camera. A perfect time for a photography tour.

During winter, the nights are shorter but it gives more chances to see Aurora Borealis. Also, most areas are covered in snow creating an amazing view of the island. From September to March, we have prepared different itineraries to enjoy the island. Join us during our Winter Photo Tour in November or March.

What is the cheapest time to go to Iceland?

The offseason of Iceland goes from September to May. It means that a trip to Iceland during the Northern Lights season is the cheapest time to travel in terms of flights, accommodations, etc… Probably the cheapest month is May, but during this month you not will be able to see the Aurora Borealis or visit an Ice Cave.

What is the best month to travel?

If you are looking for good weather, the best months are during summer, June through August for all-around outdoor activities. The day is especially long during the Midnight Sun, peaking June – July when it’s never completely dark. Anyway, Iceland is a country to enjoy all year.

Private custom tours to the Highlands

If you are interested to visit the Highlands, write to us for more info. We are preparing a new camping adventure in the center of Iceland. Wild landscapes & real photographic expedition to the hidden locations of the island.

Jabi Sanz Photographer Guide

Jabi Sanz

Co Founder - Photographer

I have been fascinated by the possibilities of photography since my trip to Iceland in Aug 2017. I grew up in Pamplona, a small city in the North of Spain. My parents always used to take me to explore nature, not far from my city. We have the incredible Pyrenees just an hour from home. But I never had a camera or a passion for photography till that trip to Iceland, where I bought my current camera. That country blew my mind and now I can’t live without photography. I think photography makes me connect to nature different from what I have ever experienced before. Nature is my inspiration, with all the beauty, variety of colors, sounds and compositions. Nature has made me travel and get to know places that I didn’t think before I would go.

Information before travel to Iceland

How to Get There

You can fly to Iceland with Icelandair and WOW Air, which are the two Iceland-based carriers. These companies offer direct and affordable flights for around $90 one-way tickets from the US and UK. Recently, the prices have dropped to as little as $65. If you live in the United States, there are flights from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Miami, New York, and Boston. And if you are from Great Britain you can fly to Iceland from London Heathrow, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.

Icelandair offers the best compliments for your flight. The ticket includes water, soft drinks, tea, coffee and also in-flight entertainment, and a free checked bag. On your arrival at Keflavik airport, our guides will be waiting for you, so you not will need to worry about more transportation.

How many days do you need to travel?

You can see the main spots in around 7-8 Days. But for photographers, spend 9-10 days is better as it will allow you to capture the perfect spots at the best time. If you visit Iceland for fewer days, you not will be able to explore the main attractions that Iceland has to offer.

Which currency is used?

In Iceland, the currency is the Iceland Krona. Once there you can pay also all with a credit card. Although you can’t pay in euros, you can convert once there to Iceland Krona in the same airport. We suggest changing around 100-200 euros or dollars the first day and use your travel debit card there.

Is safe to drive?

We can read on the internet that driving in Iceland is not safe. But the reality is that Iceland has a very good road, especially the Ring Road. Just to arrive at a few locations, you can find dirt roads, and of course, to arrive at interior locations you can need a special vehicle. Anyway, for most of the famous locations, you can arrive easily in a normal car. During winter, and when conditions are not favorable, drive-in Iceland can be not safe. This way we recommend you travel with an expert guide during this season.

Do I need a Visa to visit?

No, you can enter just with your passport if you have American citizenship. Also, Iceland is inside the Schengen area, which means that you just need your national id, but we suggest also bringing your passport.

How to visit a doctor? Are vaccinations necessary?

If you are a European citizen we suggest getting the European Health Insurance Card. It´s free and you ask for it on the internet. No vaccinations of any kind are required to enter Iceland.

Do we visit Reykjavik?

Our Iceland photography workshops are focus on landscape photography. We spend the last day usually in Reykjavik before finish the tour. But we do not make a classical tourist tour around the capital. Even if half of the population lives here, Reykjavik is not a big city.

If you are interested to photograph with more time, you can ask us for an extension of the photo workshop. During the extension, we will drive also around the Golden Ring.

Shoulder seasons (spring and fall) offer colorful foliage and good chances of aurora sightings, but can be unpredictable weather-wise.

Iceland’s most photographed spot is likely Kirkjufell mountain, also known as “Church Mountain.” This dramatic peak sits on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and is known for its unique cone shape and beautiful surroundings.

Are you allowed to take pictures in the Blue Lagoon?

How do you photograph Iceland’s waterfalls?

Iceland’s waterfalls demand slow shutter speeds for that silky water effect. Use a tripod and set your camera to a slow shutter speed (below 1/2 second) and a small aperture for sharpness. Pack rain gear and explore different angles – behind the falls for a unique view!

    I recently did a photo tour in Iceland with Eduardo, the owner of Photo World Tours. The trip was amazing. Yes, Eduardo is a world class photographer, but to be honest there are a lot of great photographers out there. It takes more than just photographic expertise to lead a tour – particularly in the conditions of Iceland – and Eduardo has all of the talents, insight, and knowledge to do that, and on top of it all, he’s just a good guy who is really funny as well (a trait that was appreciated on some of the long drives between locations).

    I was very impressed with Eduardo’s knowledge of the shooting locations, but also the small logistical details that surround the actual photography… such as when the last restaurant closed in a small town in a distant location (you don’t want to come back from a sunset shoot and find out you can’t eat until the next morning!). He also led the group with a firm but kind hand.. something that’s important when you’re working with six strangers with very different personalities.

    And of course, his photographic expertise is beyond compare. His knowledge of composition and creating art is as amazing as is his technical abilities in both shooting and editing. He was very good about walking us thru the best way to shoot something, the right lens to capture it, and gave us detailed instructions with the things that were new to us like capturing the aurora.

    All in all, I can’t say enough good things about Eduardo and Photo World Tours. He exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend him for a tour of anywhere, anytime.

    Unforgettable trip to Iceland, with the company of a group that, although international, ended up being a great group, it took me with a great experience and new friends. We went with Eduardo Fuster as a guide and in addition to telling us the best places and tips for photography, we also had our talks about topics unrelated to photography, wanting to repeat

    A few weeks ago I took a trip to Iceland with this company and it was really fabulous. They gave us support and all the information we needed prior to the trip and during the trip the person in charge guided us, accompanied us, advised and taught us in any aspect related to the trip and photography. It has been a fantastic journey. I would repeat with Hugo and Edu. All the best
