The Highlands form the heart of Iceland – an uninhabited, ever-changing wilderness forged by the forces of ice and fire.
They are home to some of the most surreal landscapes you can imagine – ancient volcanos, steaming geothermal areas, rainbow mountain ranges, jeweled crater lakes, and majestic waterfalls that are dispersed amongst barren plains of volcanic desert and vast lava fields.
Their remoteness and harsh terrain make them challenging to access, with only skilled drivers in 4×4 vehicles that have experience with glacial river crossings venturing here. This makes them a fantastic destination for photographers who want to experience the raw, rugged, and breathtaking landscapes of Iceland away from crowds.
  • A focus on landscape and aerial photography
  • Observing the dynamic nature between ice and fire in Iceland in a region forged through the combined forces of glaciers and volcanic activity
  • Exploring the steaming geothermal area of Kerlingarfjöll
  • The incredible rainbow rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar
  • Highland jewels – the turquoise waters of the Valley of Tears, and hidden sapphire and emerald crater lakes
  • Traveling Iceland’s infamous ‘F-Roads’ to remote areas without crowds
  • Learning new skills and advanced photography techniques to make the most of lighting and locations such as bracketing, focus stacking and long exposures
  • A private workshop so your experience is truly personal, and you get to know your guide and fellow photographers
