Remote Highlands of Iceland Photo Workshop
In this unique photo workshop, you will travel around the remote Icelandic Highlands and discover many of the hidden gems this isolated area has to offer. This is a new workshop focusing on remote and less visited areas of the Highlands. Our focus is to access remote locations that are closed for most of the year and photograph the dynamic Highland landscapes. You have never seen Iceland like this before.
The Highlands of Iceland are vast, combining glaciers, moraines, red–yellow and black deserts, geothermal areas & hot springs, lava, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. In this photo workshop, you will have the rare opportunity to photograph and visit areas that offer all of the landscapes so unique to Iceland. It is quite simply a photographer’s dream even if you have visited the Highlands with us before, don’t worry there will be something new to experience and photograph.
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 at the beginning of October if the autumn is mild. This short window of time gives enthusiastic photographers only a few months a year to explore and enjoy the many breathtaking locations this area offers.
