ICELAND EXPERIENCE


Explore Iceland is a photographic journey where the main focus is on the ice caves under the Jökulsarlón glacier. Thanks to a very expert local guide it will be possible to get to the heart of the glacier and live a unique experience by taking unprecedented photos. The southern part of the island will be explored. From the blue lagoon with its geothermal sources of hot water, where for those who wish it will be possible to warm up with a boiling bath under the sky of northern lights, to the beautiful waterfalls of Gullfoss, Hifoss and Seljalandsfoss and the spectacular diamond beach. Here it will be possible to see the incredible icebergs beached and to be able to photograph them during the changing light phases of the day, from sunset, to dawn, and perhaps even at night with the northern lights.
