Summer Photo Tour - West Fjords and Highlands

The Summer Iceland photographic tour in July includes West Iceland, the West Fjords, North, the highlands including Kjölur, Landmannalaugar plus other secret places in the interior and The Glacier Lagoon. This tour is aimed at landscape photographers who may also have an interest in bird photography although the focus will primarily be landscape photography. Still, we will get to photograph the most interesting bird colonies in Iceland such as the Puffin colony at the majestic Látrabjarg Cliffs. During this tour, we will see Iceland’s many photogenic waterfalls, beautiful streams and rivers, the largest glacier in Europe in Vatnajökull Glacier National Park, green moss, black sand and rhyolite mountains in the highlands, lava fields and a variety of Icelandic weather—all in all, a grand tour.

Climate and clothing recommendations:

The Gulf Stream is what makes Iceland inhabitable, and without it, the whole country would most likely be covered by ice. The winters are fairly mild and summers are cool. The weather can be unpredictable and very windy and rainy at times. A popular saying in Iceland is “if you don’t like the weather right now, just wait five minutes” as you may occasionally experience the four seasons all in one day: sunshine and mild temperatures to windy, cool temperatures with rain or even snow. The average temperature in January is 0 C (32 F) and the average temperature in July is 12 C (54 F)

In the view of the climate description above, we can only advise visitors to be prepared for everything. No matter what time of year you plan to visit Iceland, always pack some warm and water resistant clothes, hats, gloves and good walking shoes.

Clothes:
Practical list, independent of the season of the year

4. Extra pair of warm socks
5. Gloves and a cap

The schedule of the trip may be rearranged for the best weather conditions and light at each location, so be prepared to be flexible. This way we can make this tour as successful as possible.
