Highlands & North Iceland Photo Workshop
In this photo workshop, you will travel across the Icelandic Highlands and discover all of the best that this isolated area has to offer. This is a comprehensive workshop focusing on all areas of the Highlands plus the Mývatn area in the north of Iceland. Our main focus is to access locations that are closed for most of the year and photograph the dynamic Highland landscapes.
The Highlands of Iceland are vast, combining glaciers, moraines, red – yellow and black deserts, geothermal areas & hot springs, lava, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. In the Highlands & North Iceland Photo Workshop, you will have the rare opportunity to photograph and visit areas which offer all of the landscapes so unique to Iceland. It is quite simply a photographer’s dream.
The Highlands are usually referred to as the central area of Iceland located 400m above sea level, covering approximately 76% of the land’s surface area. It is often referred to by Icelanders as óbyggðir – or uninhabited country.
Roads accessing this area often open in late June, and typically close in the beginning of October if the autumn is mild. This short window of time gives enthusiastic photographers only a few months a year to travel and enjoy the many breathtaking locations this area offers.

This was a fantastic photo tour led by Scarpi from Arctic Exposure. Very comfortable traveling in their custom built 4 wheel drive vehicle. All accommodations were very comfortable and the meals were amazing. If you are a photographer wanting to get some great photos of Iceland look no further than Arctic Exposure. Since I suffer from advanced osteoarthritis I am not able to do much walking and I didn’t have to worry about that with this tour since most of the sites were quite close to the vehicle.
