JOIN US FOR A CULTURAL TOUR TO THE OTHERWORLDLY LANDSCAPE OF ICELAND.
Experience the vast volcanic landscape, breathtaking glaciers, and hardy Viking hospitality that have been celebrated for centuries in Icelandic sagas during this cultural photo tour to Iceland. On this unique expedition, you’ll view towering volcanic pillars, witness stunning waterfalls, and languish in ancient geyser springs.
From the capital city of Reykjavik to the remote farms and diverse southern coast, Iceland has some of the most picturesque landscapes anywhere to be captured. At every turn, the vistas will astound you. At this time of year the sun sets just below the horizon around midnight offering almost 24 hours of golden light. Ralph has planned our unique tour with this in mind, so often you’ll photograph iconic waterfalls and landscapes at off hours, before or after the typical tourists have departed. We’ll also have an opportunity to bathe outdoors in the warm and otherworldly Blue Lagoon.
Focus on Photography and Meet the Locals
The unique interplay of light, shadows, and intense colors make every photographer’s heart jump! Mother nature has painted a magnificent tapestry of colors with geological phenomena unmatched elsewhere in the world. Inexorably intertwined with this exotic natural environment are the 300,000+ Icelanders who along with their Nordic and Celtic ancestors have called this North Atlantic Island their home for over 1,100 years.
Join Ralph on this adventure to one of our planet’s most fascinating and unique environments.
