Spring Photo Workshops in Iceland

Spring in Iceland is a short but sweet season, spanning April and May, showcasing the best Iceland has to offer. The days get longer and sunnier, but the mountain peaks are still covered with snow. It is a tradition in Iceland to consider the beginning of spring to be whenever the first Golden Plover, is spotted. We say it has arrived to whisk the snow away. 

Our workshops provide a wide range of photography opportunities as the days are getting longer giving us stunning sunrises and sunsets. Waterfalls raging because of the melting snow, black sand beaches and glacier lagoons, to Icelandic horses running beside the road. The opportunities are endless.

Wildlife also starts to return to its breeding grounds giving us the opportunity to photograph the famous puffins as they return to create their nests. Fun fact about puffins, they mate for life and each female bird only races one puffling per year. Other beautiful birds and whales also return to their breeding grounds. 

You will travel in comfort and style in our custom made 4×4 super jeeps, giving you access to remote locations not accessible by other vehicles. 

As we emerge from long winter, spring can give us sunshine or snow and everything in between. Average temperatures range from 0° – 12°c (31°F – 53°F). In late May the weather is normally rather good as summer approaches. 

To get the most out of our spring workshops we recommend that people are reasonably fit. You need to be willing to embrace the weather, as we spend a lot of time outside and be able to do short walks on uneven terrain.
