Iceland Winter Photography Workshop Adventure

ICELAND WINTER ADVENTURE 2017

Come join me for an adventure in Iceland during the incredibly beautiful winter season. Unlike our Summer Iceland Adventure that focuses on chasing the midnight sun, our time in Iceland in February 2017 will be mostly focused on the Northern Lights and Ice Caves found in the South of Iceland. Each night we will track weather forecasts and solar storm activity, giving our group the best chance to see and photograph the incredibly gorgeous Auroras that Iceland is known for. Weather permitting, we will also enter a number of Ice Caves found near Jokulsarlon with experienced guides. These natural forming caves change year to year, but their sheer beauty and the stunning photographic opportunities they offer always remain the same.

Iceland is located in one of the northern most locations on the planet. In February, you will get a chance to see Iceland in one of its most beautiful seasons, Winter. Historically, Feb is one of the best month to visit Iceland for a chance to see the Northern Lights. This is not only because the weather is a bit more forgiving then Dec – January, but solar activity from the sun (which causes Auroras) is typically at it’s highest point during this 30 day span. If we are fortunate enough to get clear skies with the right conditions, the Iceland Aurora light show will be an incredible once in a life time photographic event!

In addition to aurora hunting and photographing beautiful waterfalls along the way (Skogarfoss, Seljandsfoss, Bruarfoss, Gulfoss), we will also spend time exploring Ice Caves found near Jokulsarlon in South Iceland. Every year these Ice Caves change drastically because of the natural ebb and flow of the glacier, allowing for new and incredible experiences with each cave we visit. While our ability to reach these caves depends on accessibility and weather (we can’t safely enter when it is raining hard), we will be working with experienced guides along the way to help us get in and out safely.
