Winter Photo Workshops in Iceland
Winter is the longest season in Iceland, from November to March if we are lucky, it can start sooner and end later. It’s not only the longest but also one of the best time to visit Iceland if you are a photographer. Shorter days gives us amazing sunrises and sunsets leaving time for hunting the northern lights in the evenings. The weather is always a favorite talking point in Iceland for a reason, it is ever changing and can create dramatic and interesting conditions for a multitude of photo opportunities.
Iceland in winter will give you an unique experiences, ice caves, glaciers, frozen waterfalls, lagoons, snow and frost covered landscapes and the northern lights can be seen from late August through March.
We also have the Icelandic horses, wildlife like reindeer, foxes and seals.
The ice cave season is from November to March and in all of our winter workshops we visit at least one. Every year the caves are different and conditions vary from day to day, we provide helmets and crampons.
You will enjoy traveling in Iceland in our custom made 4×4 super jeeps. Winter is the best season to show them off and they will take you places that are not accessible in other vehicles.
In Iceland we have a dry climate and temperatures during winter can range from -10°c to 5°c (14°F – 41°F ) it is normal for it to be around 0°c (32°F). If we get wind it may feel colder.
Days can be short during the winter months. For winter solstice in late December we have just over four hours of daylight in contrast to early November we have around eight.
To best enjoy Iceland in the wintertime we recommend that people are reasonably fit. You need to be able to walk through snow and on ice and be prepared to spend some time out in the cold to get the most out of your workshop.
