Join landscape photographers Shadi Nassri and Dany Eid

for a Photography Adventure in Iceland for 7 days.

Iceland is without doubt a photographer’s paradise, mostly because of the great variety in landscape along with exceptional light. In Iceland you will encounter breathtaking vistas, unspoiled countryside, endless amount of waterfalls, impressive coastlines and dramatic weather.
Autumn is a great time to visit Iceland because this time of year Icelandic nature transforms and becomes amazingly beautiful with vibrant and colourful landscape and sceneries all around. In September days start to get shorter with less hours of sunlight, the midnight sun is no longer visible but instead the Northern Lights makes its first appearance.
The main focus of the tour will be landscape photography where we will be following the light so be prepared for long days chasing sunrises and sunsets along with the aurora borealis. During this tour we will explore and photograph the west of Iceland, the Golden circle in the south, the southern highland and the south coast all the way to the southeast area of Iceland. On this trip you will experience rough yet beautiful coastlines, Europe ́s largest glacier, world famous glacier lagoons with floating iconic icebergs, epic and majestic waterfalls in all shapes and sizes, astonishing mountains and mountain peaks, pitch black volcanic beaches with epically shaped sea stacks and last but not least the breathtaking colourful southern highland. All this in good company.
