A wildlife photography workshop or holiday in Iceland is a much better experience to those found in other countries. As the only country in the world to not have mosquitos, you can sit in comfort as you observe the wide array of birds and other wildlife that reside on the island.

Whilst not home to as many large land mammals as the other Scandinavian countries, the seabirds found along the coast rival that of many other countries in Europe.

For anyone interested in a wildlife photography workshop in Iceland, be sure to head to Flatey in Breiðafjörður - an island on the western coast of the country.

Here you’ll witness a huge number of tame nesting birds, including eiders and Arctic terns. Following on from here, take a trip to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula which contains a large number of resident seabird colonies, with species such as razorbills, common guillemots as well as the rare Brünnich’s guillemot.
