WHAT YOU WILL PHOTOGRAPH IN THIS PHOTO TOUR

 

… and many other locations far from the usual tourist routes and often unknown, which you will discover during the journey!

Calendario 800

PHOTO TOUR DAILY SCHEDULE

 

Day 1 – Arrival

On your first day in Iceland, you will arrive at Keflavik International Airport. We will be waiting for you in the arrival hall and will take you to the hotel in central Reykjavik. We’ll be available from 10 am to 6 pm. Outside of these hours you could take the Flybus, which leaves every 30 mins from the airport and will take you directly and quickly to the hotel.

At the hotel we will meet at 7 pm in the lobby and head out for a delicious meal at a nearby restaurant and the official start of the workshop. At the restaurant we will get to know each other and review the itinerary of the journey ahead of us.

Accommodation: Reykjavik
 


 

Day 2 – Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss and Vik

We will leave the hotel in the early morning and travel east through the black sands of the south coast of Iceland. On your way you will shoot two of Iceland‘s most picturesque and popular waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss.

Seljalandsfoss is a narrow and tall fall with a drop of 63 meters. It is possible to walk behind the water of Seljalandsfoss, a unique photographic angle. At a drop of 60 meters and with a width of 25 meters Skogafoss is one of Iceland‘s highest and most scenic falls. A pathway leads to the top of the fall and further upstream, where other spectacular falls can be found. During sunny days the spray Skogarfoss may produce a double rainbow.

We will then travel towards the most southerly part of the mainland to Reynisfjara beach, near the charming village of Vik. This beach, with its dramatic scenery, may be the most beautiful in Iceland and certainly one of the best places for landscape photography. It is covered with black pebbles and by the shore you‘ll see an impressive basalt column pyramid called Gardar. Off shore the rugged basalt sea stacks Reynisdrangar rise from the ocean. The waves here are some of the strongest you‘ll find in Iceland.

After a great day of shooting fantastic scenery, we’ll accommodate you at a hotel and have dinner at a nearby restaurant.

During the evening hours we’ll be vigilant and ready to shoot in case there should be a Northern Lights display.

Accommodation: Vik
 


 

Day 3 – Skaftafell and Vatnajokull National parks, Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon

At sunrise we’ll shoot on the famous black beach of Vik, then we’ll travel towards the Vatnajokull National Park. The park offers some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery you’ll find in Iceland. At it’s centre is Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajokull.

We will focus on the southern and eastern regions of the park where you will see beautiful waterfalls, mighty glaciers, glacier tongues, dark beaches, magnificent mountains, icy glacier lagoons such as Jokulsarlon and much more.

We’ll visit the Svinafellsjokull glacier tongue and glacial lagoon in the Skaftafell National Park, then we’ll head to the amazing Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon to enjoy the sunset on the famous Ice Diamonds beach of Breidamerkursandur.

The evening’s accommodation will be at a hotel near Jokulsarlon and dinner at a nearby restaurant.

During the evening hours we’ll be vigilant and ready to shoot in case there should be a Northern Lights display.

Accommodation: Jokulsarlon
 


 

Day 4 – Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon and Stokksnes

On the fourth day of the Northern Lights in Iceland Photo Tour, you can decide to enjoy a magical sunrise on the Breidamerkursandur beach or at the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon, the choice is yours.

We will then head further east of Vatnajokull and explore the majestic Vestrahorn mountain which rises proudly to 454 meters above the black lava beach of the Stokksnes peninsula. This steep mountain is interesting geologically, it consists of unstratified plutonic rock, mostly gabbro, but with some granophyre as well. The mountain has a very interesting shape, consisting of several steep peaks, and one particularly oddly shaped outcrop called Brunnhorn that stretches way out to the sea. All this coupled with the mighty waves of the North Atlantic Ocean crashing on the shore results in great photographic scenery.

As our journey progresses we will constantly be following and seeking the best possible light. Sunrise and sunset are particularly recommended for photographing Vestrahorn and its surroundings, the low light plays beautifully over this epic mountain.

We’ll shoot the Vestrahorn from Stokksnes at sunset, and then we’ll accommodate you at a hotel in Hofn and have dinner at a nearby restaurant.

During the evening hours we’ll be vigilant and ready to shoot in case there should be a Northern Lights display.

Accommodation: Hofn
 


 

Day 5 – Stokksnes, Dyrholaey and Vik

At sunrise we’ll shoot Vestrahorn from Stokksnes again. Different times of day and lighting conditions can produce great shots so it is definitely worth another shooting session.

Then we’ll move back to Vik where we’ll shoot the sunset at Dyrholaey.

After a great days of shooting we’ll accommodate at the hotel in Vik and have dinner at a nearby restaurant.

During the evening hours we’ll be vigilant and ready to shoot in case there should be a Northern Lights display.
Accommodation: Vik
 


 

Day 6 – Vik, Thingvellir and Gullfoss

After another magnificent sunrise shot on the black beach of Vik, we’ll start visiting some of Iceland‘s most popular attractions. These consist of Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area in South Iceland. Together these are known as the Golden Triangle.

In terms of nature, history and cultural heritage, Thingvellir is one of Iceland‘s most important sites. It is designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and was site of the national assembly founded in the 10th century, Althingi. Iceland’s present parliament in Reykjavik still bears the same name. Thingvellir is a rift valley, where the North Atlantic and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. The impressive Almannagja gorge is evidence of this and we recommend shooting the beautiful waterfall Oxararfoss that falls into the gorge. Thimgvellir is one of the most photogenic sites in all of Iceland surrounded by a ring of mountains and containing Thingvallavatn, Iceland‘s largest lake and its islets, there are plenty of shooting possibilities.. Underwater photography has also been popular in the area, as the clear water fissure Silfra opens into the lake, where photographers are literally swimming between continents.

The thunderous waterfall Gullfoss is widely considered to be the most beautiful of its kind in all Iceland. Its name indeed translates to “The Golden Waterfall”. It is part of the Hvita glacier river in South Iceland and has a drop of 32 meters into a narrow river gorge. This waterfall is a dream come true for any serious landscape photographer. You may even get close enough to feel its spray on your face.

Accommodation will be at a hotel near Geysir and we’ll have dinner at a nearby restaurant.

During the evening hours we’ll be vigilant and ready to shoot in case there should be a Northern Lights display.

Accommodation: Geysir
 


 

Day 7 – Geysir and Kirkjufell

We’ll enjoy shooting Geysir at sunrise, when there will be far fewer tourists.

The geothermal area and the spouting hot spring Geysir gives its name to geysers, all over the world. While Geysir itself hardly erupts anymore, its powerful neighbour Strokkur certainly does, spouting water to a height of 15-20 meters every 5 minutes. Other notable geysers (with a small ‘g’) are Smidur and Litli-Strokkur. You’ll also find fumaroles (hot springs that emanate steam and gas) and may note bright yellow stains of native sulphur that have crystalized in the steam as well as a range of mudpots (fumaroles that boil through the groundwater/surface water). During dry spells these may steam, but otherwise they boil. Close by is an old natural pool, which can be entered by visitors but with caution as it is delicate. There is also forestry in the area and a tree museum, which are well worth a visit. Finally, you might want to check out the charming old wooden church. This colourful area offers incredible diversity and a great opportunity for stunning photos.

In the afternoon we’ll head to Snaefellsnes peninsula, where the famous Kirkjufell is located, made famous by the TV series Game of Thrones.
We will photograph at sunset at the foot of this mountain and its waterfalls, where we can also return during the night in the event of Northern Lights.

Accommodation: Grundarfjordur
 


 

Day 8 – Arnarstapi, Londrangar, Budir and Reykjanes peninsula

We will leave early to go and photograph the sunrise in Arnarstapi and along the south coast of the Snaefellsnes peninsula.
Here are some beautiful locations like Londrangar and Budir, a small black church.

In the afternoon we will move to Reykjanes peninsula, where we’ll shoot sunset at beautiful Reykjanesviti point.

After shooting at sunset, we’ll move to Keflavik where we’ll accommodate you at a hotel and have dinner at a nearby restaurant and the workshop will end.

Accommodation: Keflavik
 


 

Day 9 – Departure

Your very last day, you will take the FlyBus or other shuttles from the hotel to Keflavik International Airport for your return flight. Taking with you memories and photographs from an unforgettable adventure.

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOGRAPHIC EXCURSION ON THE VATNAJOKULL GLACIER

 
The Vatnajokull glacier is the largest in Europe by volume and according to the Guinness Book of Records, it is the object with the greatest visibility in the world: in particular weather and light conditions it can be seen from Slættaratindur, the highest peak in the Faroe Islands Øer, distant 550 km.
In this private 3-hour tour designed specifically for us we will have a local English-speaking guide, and we will provide translation into Italian.
Included in the tour: protective helmet, crampons and ice ax, the presence of our teachers for all advice on how to best capture this spectacular scenery.

IMPORTANT

USEFUL INFORMATION

After the registration you will receive by email the Travel Program and all useful information.
You will also be placed in a reserved group on Facebook where you can talk with the teachers to prepare yourself for the trip.

Discover the most useful information on our Photo Tour by clicking on the sections below:

For this trip a minimum dose of adaptability is required, given the climatic conditions and the types of accommodation that the place offers.
We will stay in guesthouses or small hotels, in double rooms with private bathroom in the room, chosen mainly based on the strategic location close to the shooting locations, and based on the experience gained during our previous photographic trips.
Only occasionally could happen to have only triple rooms available, sometimes with shared bathroom (usually a bathroom every 2-3 rooms). It must be considered that in these cases, as in all the Nordic countries, the cleanliness and conditions of the common areas are of an excellent standard and during previous trips these situations have never caused any inconvenience to any of the participants.

If you do not have companions and do not choose a single (it carries a surcharge and is not always available), you can share the room with one of the other participants.

Contact us if you want more information on this aspect of the trip.

Activity Level: Easy – Short walks over mostly level ground – Conditions in Iceland can be inhospitable which may increase the difficulty.

Participation in this Photographic Tour is recommended for those who already have a minimum basic preparation, ie those who know how to shoot in Manual mode, are familiar with the use of ISO, timing and aperture, has a good knowledge of the camera menu.
Having these notions will allow you to take advantage of all the photographic opportunities that will arise and to better assimilate all the intermediate and advanced concepts that our teachers will explain to you.
A few weeks before the trip you will receive our exclusive Teaching Preparation Manual to begin learning new concepts, shooting techniques and post-production even before the trip and you will have exclusive access to our video post-production tutorials with Lightroom and Photoshop .
The very limited number of participants enables continuous interaction with the teachers, who can help and advise you at any time, but we cannot guarantee that you will have the opportunity to explain the basics of photography.

Not sure if this photo trip is right for you? Contact us and talk directly with the teachers of the Workshop.

You can participate with any brand of camera (Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, etc.): despite being Nikon School, in almost all of our Workshops there are also participants with other camera brands, so our teachers will be perfectly able to help you with your camera settings.

To participate in the Workshop the following equipment is required:

  • SLR or mirrorless camera (any make and model)
  • Any lens
  • Tripod
  • Remote control / Remote shooting
  • 1-2 spare batteries
  • Enough memory cards to hold at least 1500 photos (or a notebook to download the photos, but it is better to have enough cards for the whole trip)

Before departure we will send you an email with all the useful information about the most suitable equipment for this trip and our buying guides for tripods and filters, which will help you understand if it is appropriate to improve the your photographic kit. If you don’t want to wait, you can immediately get the guides by clicking on the banner at the bottom of this page.

  • Wide-angle lens with the possibility of mounting filters (approximately 14-17 mm minimum focal length on full frame)
  • Bright wide-angle lens for night-time (eg 14mm f2.8 on full frame)
  • Medium zoom lens (eg 24-70 mm or 24-120 mm on full frame)
  • Telephoto zoom lens (eg 70-200 mm or 70-300 mm on full frame)
  • Photographic filters (circular polarizer, ND, GND, etc.)
  • Cleaning kit with pump, microfibre cloth, small brush

Before departure we will send you an email with all the useful information about the most suitable equipment for this trip and our buying guides for tripods and filters, which will help you understand if it is appropriate to improve the your photographic kit. If you don’t want to wait, you can immediately get the guides by clicking on the banner at the bottom of this page.

Let’s try to debunk a myth: the climate in Iceland is less hostile than you can imagine.
With winter clothing (eg a ski suit) you will have no problem facing the cold or wind that we will encounter in this period in the areas visited.

Before departure we will send you an email with lots of detailed information on the most suitable clothing and accessories for this trip.

Since we will load all the luggage in the cars, it is important to limit the size of the luggage as much as possible, also in consideration of the short duration of the trip.
We recommend using a suitcase or duffel bag of about 100 liters of capacity (about 80 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm), in addition to the photo backpack.

Valid Passport with at least 2 blank pages. Tourist VISA not required for stays under 90 days. We advise to check your own country immigration laws to ensure you have the right to travel to Iceland.

First experience with Vista In Iceland in February 2016 … what to say, the place is fantastic, but without the meticulous organization of Vista guides it wouldn’t have been the same.
Already in the weeks preceding the trip there was no lack of advice on clothing and equipment to buy to tackle the journey to the fullest; a group has been created on facebook where post questions and doubts.
During the trip, there were also tips to improve technique and composition. Their professionalism and experience are available 24 hours a day.
Once in place you understand all the work behind the organization of the trip to make sure you get the best possible result; every move has been studied in detail to make sure you see the same locations in different lighting situations and to hope to see them at least once with ideal weather conditions (given the weather variability in Iceland it is not a situation to be underestimated); the choice of accommodation and the various stages have been planned precisely for this purpose.
Last but not least, their friendliness and availability helps to cement the group and make the journey even more enjoyable.

The only negative note …. the sadness of the last day of travel … but this does not depend on Vista 😉

Thanks Vista … keep it up !!!!
See you soon for other photographic adventures

If I can recommend … Vista guides are two valid tutors as well as traveling companions! Everything went well, from the organization before the trip (various clothing and phone calls) very detailed and careful in the aspects, until the end of the trip. I had a dream, even if in Iceland I have to go back other times because it is a wonderful land where I feel good. I do not consider Gabriele Italian, but local because I was impressed by his ability to know how to move (even without a navigator!) On the spot. It is essential and indispensable to go to Iceland, working alongside trained people who know the place well (which also offers hostile aspects with unpredictable weather). What can I say … As a lover of landscapes I realized an emotion and I will come back for sure!
Many thanks to everyone … the journey did not last long because like every beautiful thing … everything seems like a dream!
Good luck guys!

Photo courses are addictive! During the week spent in Iceland you can discover and photograph the most iconic corners and the less known but equally fantastic views. You have at your disposal 2 tireless professional photographers who know this island by heart to never be caught unprepared and to make you always live the best emotion possible. The travel program is the result of a highly professional organization. When you come home, once you unpack your bags, you can download the photos and relive the emotions experienced endlessly. Then go to the Vista website and book another trip and workshop !!

For me it was the first sprint in Iceland: a spectacular land !! The organization of the trip was impeccable, it was able to create a pleasant atmosphere. Travel colleagues and organizers (who I had already had occasion to learn about on another trip) nice and pleasant people. Photography is the focus of the journey, so waking up at dawn and nightly waiting for the mythical northern lights. This year, I must say, to have been lucky with AURORA, two nights it has manifested itself to us of which one in a spectacular way !!! As a corollary of this, beautiful landscapes whitened by a snowfall on the first night that made it all in a magical atmosphere. Sunrises and sunsets, waterfalls and mountains, glacial lagoons and geysers. I had confirmation that what you learn in the field is not learned on books or in workshops on youtube, the direct experience matters a lot, and the instructors have always been available to suggestions in all aspects aimed at bringing home the best shots. Overall I was very satisfied with the journey from which, in addition to the scenic beauty of that land, I brought home new friendships and photographic sharing that brought growth to my cultural background.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Expectations of travel were high, everyone talks about Iceland as the preferred destination for landscape photography. On the beauty of Iceland there is not much to discuss, black sand beaches, waterfalls, glaciers, frozen lagoons and unspoiled landscapes combined with the spectacle of the northern lights. Thanks to Vista guides the expectations were repaid, choice of places and organization of the optimal journey. Moreover both Vista guides have been very useful to improve my method with which to approach landscape photography. Final note, both are also good traveling companions, which does not hurt at all.

Recently returned from this trip to Iceland, it is the second time, but I would go back immediately. As always friends Vista guides were very professional and excellent companions. Great group and excellent the weather, at these latitudes is not obvious, a week of sunshine interspersed with a night snowfall that made the landscape photographically unique.

… on my second personal attempt to try to see the northern lights, despite the raw nature he did “his duty”, I managed to see it, it’s all considered it was a beautiful and exciting experience. This is thanks to the flexibility of the accompanying teachers and the interaction between teachers and participants, which on two feet or so and betting against the Icelandic weather made the difference. A challenging but rewarding week, both in the primary aspect of photography and in the relationship with travel companions. For those who “live with images”, this is a journey that cannot be missed. A special thanks to Gabriele for calling me Eric (like my myth of always Eric Clapton) for almost the entire trip. 🙂

I participated in the photographic trip to Iceland with Vista guides in the second session of February 2016, waiting for a while as I had to book early because of the great membership request they have, I still used the wait anyway to spread easily my quota.
Once I arrived in Iceland I immediately felt definitely involved for the passion for photography that united everyone, students and teachers.
The journey was organized down to the smallest detail, from the best places and times to take, from the journeys, from the always available food to the beautiful places where you can always rest near the possible auroras and dawns, from Vista guides’ constant patience in teaching tricks for most beautiful and effective photos. The day in addition to photographic work gave beautiful moments of group relaxation such as dinners, aperitifs and even relaxing baths in the chalet near Geysir. The group of new friends I already miss.
An experience that I recommend.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

A truly exhilarating experience from all points of view. Starting with the organization, nothing short of impeccable. Made possible also by the great competence of Vista guides. An experience that gives you back to the world with a wealth of experience that went far beyond my expectations, certainly to be repeated as soon as possible!
Beautiful rigà !!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

This trip was a real experience! Vista guides, who I had already got to know on “photographic” weekend occasions in Italy, confirmed their professionalism, their ability to organize the trip and the unexpected as well as their sympathy !!!!!
A journey like this is certainly not to be improvised given the “difficulty” of the territory and for this I thank Vista guides for having escorted us to the discovery of this wonderful land, always putting our advice and their experience in the realization of photographs by us students.
I have already booked other experiences with Vista.
Definitely recommend.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Beautiful photographic journey in an incredibly beautiful and wild country. The icing on the cake was the excellent company, often in the evening, washed down with excellent grappas and genepì and the professionalism of Vista guides who helped us to create excellent shots even to those who were not great landscape experts.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

I really enjoyed this journey in many ways. First of all, the path that allowed us to see and review the most beautiful places in the southern part of Iceland under different light conditions and weather conditions. The second aspect was the preparation of the carers who immediately gave us their full availability and professionalism in the day and non-day shooting sessions.
I also appreciated the car transfers that were always well balanced and never too tiring for the rather challenging days.
The places visited are unimaginable and have always been a source of great astonishment and above all I am grateful to Vista guides for their knowledge and experience of this place without which many tourists would find themselves totally lost.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Iceland, a unique place in the world where earth, fire, water and air merge and know how to overwhelm you with extraordinary shows. This journey left me just that, it took my heart and soul, all made perfect by an impeccable organization by Vista guides, thanks to their excellent technical and logistic skills. They took care of each shooting session in detail, helping us in the composition and technique, always available for advice and valuable lessons.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

The trip was what I expected, interesting, complete, Vista guides always attentive to everyone’s needs, respecting their needs and abilities. Certainly challenging for the countless locations that can be photographed. In my opinion they are the best offer of this kind for the complete tour of Iceland.

Experience to be framed! Seeing live The Aurora Borealis was something fantastic and incredible!
A special thanks to Vista guides who were able to give us the right advice in the different circumstances.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

A trip to say the least sensational through the surreal landscapes offered by Iceland. All organized meticulously, leaving nothing to chance (except for the weather, nothing can be done about that). Moreover Vista guides have always been available for questions and suggestions as well as friendly and cordial for the whole past week.
Simply Magnificent like the whole group.
See you at the next trip !!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

A great common passion, like photography to share, does things that you would not even imagine. The intense cold, the wind that cuts your face, your hands, which, though protected by gloved hands, freeze, slowing down and making difficult, the most trivial of operations. The early night hours, after a few hours of sleep, are always ready to travel with suitcases and photographic backpacks, or hastily eat inside the cabin of the van, sandwiches made at the moment, or biscuits of all kinds, during the transfers from a place to other, to take pictures with optimal light conditions. All this is possible and not very tiring if, in addition to the passion for photography as I said before, you find yourself in front of beautiful places. Iceland is unique in this. Mountains that end in the sea, beaches with black sand, sprinkled with snow and ice, where the unfailing wind always draws new guidelines, highly sought after in the composition of the image, or the icicles on the beach like sunlit diamonds embellish the scenery. The Glacial Lagoon, with huge blocks of ice, where the seals play and peek out. The glacier walk, a rewarding experience. Then what about the marvelous spectacle of the Northern Lights, which leaves you speechless. To make this experience unique for me, it has met some excellent traveling companions, (a condition that cannot be taken for granted), since the beginning a great climate of goliardic friendship has been created. Thanks to Vista guides, who with their professionalism, not only photographic but also organizational and their friendship have made this my adventure really special.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

A beautiful adventure lived between fantastic landscapes and wonderful adventure companions, perfectly organized by Vista guides always willing to give advice and who taught me a new way of photographing discovering the use of filters and polarizers as well as a series of suggestions that surely they will be useful in my upcoming photographic releases. A memory that will remain forever in the heart.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Iceland had always been my dream: even before the photograph caught me, it had always been a great desire. The Aurora Borealis an experience in which I wanted to immerse myself personally. And after having been at a workshop in Italy with Vista a year ago, the positive experience convinced me to embark on the Icelandic adventure with them.
A demanding journey, both from an economic point of view and from an organizational point of view, could not be done by chance, and the choice was a winning one.
A journey organized to perfection, which managed to concentrate in the short time available a variety of moments of life, of wonder, of excellent moments of shooting, of conviviality that involved me completely.
The Icelandic land is a land of wonder, but it is a hard land. Nature manifests itself with intensity. Sharp lands, wild sea, strong wind. It must be tackled with greed, but carefully. Vista guides guided us in the places describing them carefully both to give us the opportunity to capture the best images, and to give us all the warnings to guarantee our safety in the first place and also that of our equipment.
Their warnings should never be underestimated. And despite the fact that sometimes our personal inattention has given us some thrills, they have always been available to support us in resolving everything.
They were so good that the Aurora delighted us for three evenings !!! :-))) And how exciting!
And after giving us all the necessary information before leaving, after having supported (and endured :-)))) during this unforgettable journey, they are now extremely available, in the difficult phase of the selection and post-production of our creations.
Thanks Vista guides for making my Icelandic dream even brighter than I had ever dared to hope!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Perfectly organized trip: I was able to shoot in the most beautiful places in the south of the island, at the best times. Logistics and travel times calculated to perfection. Vista guides are extremely prepared and know how to create a fantastic climate.
I would leave immediately!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

If I have to find a fault in this journey, it is because, for me, it ended too soon! The place is beautiful, with the participants there was great harmony, fortunately, Vista guides are two true professionals always attentive to everyone, prodigal of explanations, who never save themselves and are also able to create beautiful moments of conviviality between the various photo sessions.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Iceland is a show, and the organization of the trip was impeccable, the pleasant atmosphere, the traveling companions and the organizers nice and pleasant people. Photography is the center of everything, so wake-up calls at dawn and night-time waits for the mythical northern lights. We were not too lucky with the aurora, something we brought home, but … the aurora does not come into command. For the rest, beautiful landscapes, sunrises and sunsets, waterfalls and mountains, glacial lagoons and geysers. No animals: you don’t even need to bring a pushed canvas, the journey is dedicated exclusively to the landscape.
I understood one thing: what you learn in the field is not learned on books or at home workshops, direct experience matters a lot, and instructors are always available for explanations and suggestions on all aspects, from equipment to the best way to shoot a landscape, and, importantly, what to look for and photograph.
Overall I am very happy with the trip, and I learned a lot.
A tip: bring spare shoes, boots if possible, and a newspaper to dry them, you often end up with your feet wet (not just your feet …!).

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

Iceland had been a dream for a long time and thanks to Vista guides I realized it in the best way! The trip was very well organized, without the slightest setback and we visited wonderful locations always in moments of better light!
To this is added a fantastic group in the company of which I really enjoyed it! Coming home was really difficult!
I look forward to the time of the next trip !!!

After having made two positive experiences traveling with Vista in Morocco, I decided to also make a trip to Iceland.
For the third time I had a positive experience. The photo spots are chosen and visited at the right times of the day.
The two “tutors” are at the complete disposal of the participants advising and following the participants.
I’m already booking another trip with Vista :)!
Thanks to Vista guides

I discovered the Vista site by searching on the internet for someone to organize trips to Iceland and Lofoten. Positive reviews and travel itinerary made me want to sign up for their trip to Iceland that I did in March 2017. It was my first experience with Vista and I would do it a thousand times (so much so that I immediately joined other people too) workshops held by Vista guides). Everything has been organized to perfection, like a Swiss watch that doesn’t miss a beat. Downtimes were reduced to zero throughout the trip, so as to maximize the time spent on each location. Vista guides, as well as being extremely competent, are also very helpful when they ask for their advice. The moments of goliardia and the people known during the trip have, then, made an experience that I would recommend to anyone who is passionate about landscape photography.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

When you decide to undertake a journey whatever it is, thousands of doubts begin to assail you: what should I bring, what could I need, will I forget something, what is there to see, etc., etc., but since I met all these doubts I have known all about myself they no longer exist, for some months before we have been made aware of everything, clothing, indispensable or optional photographic accessories up to the daily program of the locations we will visit, when then you arrive on the spot and you know Vista guides you discover that the mythical preparation of the journey and the result of unparalleled experience and professionalism in the field, one always finds oneself in the right place at the right time and nothing is left to chance, a Plan B is always ready (in the case of humanly unmanageable events) .. …. what to say simply TOP !!!
PS …. then they are also nice

I participated in March 2017 in the trip to Iceland, a true journey to discover beautiful places and centered around photography.
Vista guides are excellent professionals and friends: competent, always attentive to everyone’s needs and making the trip an engaging and informative experience.
Their passion and hard work characterize every detail of the journey: from logistics to support during and after shooting sessions (excellent and very useful for learning how to review photographs when the journey is over).
I have always returned with the desire to leave and so I will always do with Vista next year.

This is the second Icelandic experience (the first October 2015). Now, apart from the landscapes that are simply spectacular, I have to say that the work of preparing the Vista tours is cured in all respects. Nothing is left to chance; the tips begin, before leaving, with all the necessary information on clothing, equipment, advice on any new purchases. Vista guides are always present to advise you and dispel any doubt: technical, compositional. Then, beyond professionalism, Vista guides are also nice. Thanks for this additional experience and thanks to all my fellow travelers who were really fantastic!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

I have participated in numerous photographic trips organized by Vista, and every time I return home fully satisfied. The locations chosen are nothing short of wonderful, and the journey is structured to always be in the right place at the right time. The organization is impeccable, the friendliness and skill of Vista guides are priceless. Highly recommended!

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

I already knew Vista guides for having attended a workshop with them in Tuscany and I faced this trip to Iceland with the certainty of being able to count on their organization and availability. Even before departure, directions and advice never fail, a Facebook group allows you to interact with other companions and get to know them. Arrived at destination then the days are full of ideas and managed in the best way, optimizing every aspect according to the shots, without forgetting the cohesion of the group and the moments of sharing.
A truly unforgettable journey to the unique places visited, from Vik to the glacial lagoon, passing through some of the most iconic Icelandic waterfalls, and two breathtaking northern lights, so as not to miss anything!

This was not a simple photographic workshop, but a set of emotions, a unique experience that at least once in my life I highly recommend doing to anyone!
With this trip you have the opportunity to see, and live, a splendid place that is Iceland.
Every day a different place, one more beautiful than the other, all accompanied by two experienced teachers, available at any time during the shooting phase and above all nice!
What to say, everything was perfect and I will definitely do another workshop with them!

For a long time I wanted to visit Iceland; finally this year I decided. I didn’t know Vista, in fact, I came across their website almost casually a few months ago and I was immediately struck by the professionalism and exhaustiveness of the pages related to the courses and the trips.
Not having previously participated in a “photographic” journey, I started with many expectations, but very few certainties.
The trip proved to be at the height of the highest expectations: Iceland is beautiful, the organization excellent and Vista guides, the two “guides / instructors” who were able to make us feel at ease in a land as inhospitable as it was desolate . They immediately succeeded in giving birth to a great relaxing and cheerful atmosphere, they followed us constantly during the demanding days of travel and have always been extremely available to resolve doubts or give advice to improve their photographic technique.
I look forward to starting again with Vista for an upcoming trip.

Testimonial - Northern Lights in Iceland tour

A wonderful and different journey, an adventure created by two photography enthusiasts, in love with nature and highly trained teachers who made us feel (us participants) this project involving us months before departure throughout the entire organization phase. Meticulous organization both regarding the technical aspects (photographic material, technical clothing …) and logistics (car rental, overnight stays, photo locations and alternatives in case of capricious weather). I warmly thank Vista guides and all my fellow travelers thanks to whom I have lived intense moments of sharing, fun, personal enrichment and photographic growth. I came home with the Icelandic light in my heart and images that I will prefer for a long time.
