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 and 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 look 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.

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 U.S. and U.K. 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 transportations.

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.

Is an Iceland Photography Tour worth it?

If you are still wondering if Iceland is worth visiting, our answer is absolute YES. Iceland is an incredible country in the world. Unique locations every single step and spot you see made the island a paradise for all nature lovers and especially photographers. We are sure, that you will love it and you will want to come back soon.

    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
