“There is always time for a photo. But, never make it our last photo”
We are heading out get some photos. There is not going to be any long hiking, because we want all the focus to be on photography and getting great pictures.
We will start our super jeep photography tour by driving towards the legendary Hekla volcano or as sometimes called, “The Gateway to Hell”. From there we will continue onwards through Dómadalur valley, which will lead us to Frostastaðavatn and Ljótipollur. Only a few minutes away is one of our most picturesque stops, Landmannalaugar. This area is one of Iceland’s beautiful gems with its colourful rhyolite mountains, its geothermal bathing pool bordered by steep black lava fields and its extraordinary waterfalls in basalt rock formations. When everybody has gathered their tripods.
We jump back into our super jeep and had forwards to the famous Laugavegur trail. Will drive down Reykjadalir valley with its interesting geothermal area. Now we are starting to see the Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull glaciers. This is a stunning view that you don´t want to miss. Now we are starting to get closer to Road 1 and we are starting to see yet another change in the landscape. Now we are closer to the big ice caps as we arrive at Emstrur hut and we will do our best to get the best panoramic view of these magnificent ice sheets, from as many angles as possible. As our journey draws to an end, let’s hope we still have some space left on our memory cards as we take our final pictures of Eyjafjallajökull and Þórsmörk valley, as seen from the west side of Markarfljótsgljúfur. So, if you only want to focus on taking pictures all day in the vast highlands of Iceland, then this would be the tour for you.
