In our Iceland Photo Tour, we spend a week photographing the best landscapes the island have to offer.

Iceland is a near dreamlike landscape of rugged mountain peaks, canyons, dark beaches and diamonds of ices.

Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, directly east of Greenland, Iceland is Europe's western most country, the second largest island in the North-Atlantic Ocean, and a little over 3 hours flight from London, Paris or Copenhagen. 
Iceland is a true land of the midnight sun, where it will circle the summer sky without setting – or not rise at all during the dark months of winter.

With the northern lights dancing over the island from September to April and the temperate currents of the gulf stream softening the freeze of the north, Iceland has become a coveted photography destination in recent years.
