Iceland and Its Highlands Photo Excursion with AIP

Class Code:
Skill Level:

Join Adventures in Photography for a photo adventure to Iceland from Friday, June 28th - Sunday, July 7th! This excursion is tailored to photographers and designed to take participants to both the iconic and little-known places in the Highlands. With the help of expert Icelander guides and AIP's professional photo guides, each day's shoots will be optimized based on local weather conditions. Get the epic photographs that Iceland is known for, as well as in-depth training on composition, seeing the light, and a complete array of camera techniques.

This year’s trip will feature two Mercedes Sprinter Vans with gigantic tires, which will be key to reaching the best locations in the Highlands. Two vehicles also provides the ability to break into different groups; those interested in the more strenuous hikes and those looking for more relaxed access. Either way, you'll get the best of the Iceland Highlands!

Please note that airfare to and back from Iceland is NOT included.

• AIP will make every attempt to operate a photo adventure once confirmed, but will reserve the right to cancel or change a trip at any time, due to insufficient bookings and/or reasons beyond its control that may make operation of the tour impossible, illegal, or inadvisable. All tour payments received will be promptly refunded, and this refund will be the limit of AIP’s liability. AIP is not responsible for any expenses incurred by tour members in preparation for the tour, including non-refundable airline tickets, airline penalties, special clothing, visa or passport fees, or other tour-related expenses.
