A landscape photography workshop in Iceland should be top of the list for any landscape photographer.

Arguably no other country in the world has as many incredible and iconic landscapes in such a small area. From the awe-inspiring black sand beaches to the hundreds of waterfalls, Iceland has it all.

With the country being as small as it is, you’ll easily be able to see all the sites within the space of a few days, with some highlights including Gullfoss, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss falls, the geysirs, Reynisdrangar and Sólheimajökull glacier.

A landscape photography workshop or holiday in Iceland is one of the best photographic experiences for landscape specialists.

Take a trip along the coast to the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon to see the amazing combination of a black sand beach, pure white snow, and light blue icebergs.

The Vatnajökull glacier to the north feeds the lagoon with the beautiful ice, whilst also providing a gateway to the highlands in the interior of the island: a volcanic desert almost entirely uninhabited by flora or fauna.

Visit during the winter months to experience the Aurora Borealis, or northern lights. This is a dazzling display by nature at its finest, looking fabulous in this harsh yet pristine landscape.

Golden circle tours often include a journey away from the lights of civilisation to wait for these transfixing lights to appear across the night sky. Be sure to bring warm clothes as it is extremely exposed and cold during this time of year!
