Puffin Photo Tours

We run the Puffin Photo Tours from May to August each year. On this photo tour, we visit the South Coast of Iceland and make a stop at many of the beautiful waterfalls on the way. We then photograph puffins and sunset at a good location. We offer Puffin Photo Tours as a day tour, a Puffin Weekend Photo Tour and in our Summer Workshop Around Iceland from May-August, we dedicate whole two days of photography to puffins in both South & North of Iceland.

The Atlantic Puffin travels to land in the summer to nest during the warmer months. Iceland has the largest Atlantic puffin colony in the world, more than half the population comes to Iceland to nest in May, June, July and August. Puffins are calm while nesting and can dig burrows with their beaks and wings. Their flying style is frenzied but Puffins wings can beat up to 440 times per minute.

We recommend that participants contact our office for recommended gear for these Photo Tours. As always, good hiking shoes and warm clothes are recommended. For more information on the tour please contact us at info@arcticexposure.is.
