Photo tour to Iceland in February 2020 with the best travel photographer of 2017, 2018 Dmitriy Arkhipov.

Winter Iceland is an amazing adventure and an incomparable experience. Snow-capped plains, Northern Lights, frozen waterfalls shimmering in the rays of the setting sun, endless lava fields, covered with snow, black sandy beaches and hot springs under the incredible starry sky.

In winter, there is a great opportunity to catch the Northern Lights, which, in combination with frozen waterfalls, gives incredible emotions. In winter there are not many tourists, and the landscapes of Iceland appear in all its glory. If you had already been to Iceland at a different season, you would get new experience and new perception of this amazing country.

Day 0. (February 10)

We all arrive from different countries and places and gather at the Start Hotel Keflavic Aeroport, where we relax after the flight. In the evening (only in case of a good forecast to the Northern Lights) we are going to take pictures in the area of the old lighthouse.
Day 1-2. (February 11-12)

Keflavik - Vik (224 km)

In the morning our tour will begin. We gather at the hotel and head to the south of Iceland to the town of Vik. On our way, we will stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can get around and take pictures of frozen water sprays from the inside. We will also visit Gljúfrabúi and Skógafoss waterfalls. In the evening we will take photos of Dyrhólaey beach in the area of lighthouse.

The next day we have a scheduled shooting at Reynisfjara Beach with black sand and amazing photogenic rocks.
In winter, there are many great stories to witness in these places. Everything depends on the weather. We can either take pictures of frozen waterfalls or picturesque canyons. We will also constantly monitor the forecast of the Northern Lights in order to catch it at the best point.

Jökulsárlón Lagoon

Vik - Lagoon (206 km)

In the morning, on the way to the Lagoon, we are going to visit Vatnajökull National Park and see Svartifoss Waterfall. We will walk on foot about an hour on the way to the waterfall. Exciting alien landscapes are awaiting for us. In winter, the waterfall is especially beautiful. Its walls are formed by picturesque ice columns, and below, under the waterfall, is located a stunning ice pyramid.

At sunset, we will try to get to the Jökulsárlón lagoon. We will take pictures of blue ice drifting on the surface of the lagoon, which incredibly reflects the incoming sun rays.

In the morning and evening of the next day, we will take photos both on the Lagoon and on the beach with black sand, where the surf takes little pieces of ice from the lagoon. If we're lucky enough we will see the Northern Lights.

One of the days, we will have a shooting in the ice cave. This is an increadibly amazing experience.
