What to Expect
We will spend seven nights working our way from West to East Iceland. Firstly, we will spend two nights in the town of Grundarfjördur, on a lovely self cartering cottage on a farm right beside the famous Kirkjufell mountain. The town itself has a great supermarket where we can buy our food during our stay and make our food in the cottage.
The next two nights will be spent close to the town of Vík on the South coast. There are so many places to shoot around here, especially popular spots but also plenty of lesser known spots too. This will be self catering and the house is cosy with all the mod cons.
We will spend the next two nights in a guesthouse in the town of Hofn, on the South East of Iceland, right beside the iconic Vestrahorn mountain and more! Hofn has some really nice restaurants for eating out in the evenings also.
On our last night, we will make our way back to the accommodation at Vík to spend one night there before making our way to the airport on the morning of the 16th of March.
All accommodations have us well placed to shoot the Northern Lights in some iconic locations.
Each accommodation has three rooms, two for single occupancy and one for sharing with myself (male only), except for our accommodation in Hofn, each person will have their own room for two nights.
I will arrive to Keflavik Airport at 2pm on March 9th, Please arrive no later than 3pm. We will be back at Keflavik airport at 6am on March 16th.
There will be NO SET itinerary for this trip as I prefer to keep a close eye on weather forecasts throughout the tour to determine our destination and make sure we have the best possible weather that may suit a specific place. In my experience of spending time in Iceland, we always took it one day at a time as we were keeping tabs on the weather forecast and it worked a treat. We got some great conditions including amazing sunrises and sunsets most days aswell as amazing nights of jaw dropping northern light displays.
