ICELAND GROUP TRIP: EXPLORE THE LAND OF FIRE AND ICE
Come join us on this women's-only adventure photography retreat where we will discover some of Iceland's most mind-blowing places and experience the magic of this incredibly diverse and wild country, while expanding your photography skills.I WANT TO GO!
In the last decade, the "Land of Fire and Ice" has gotten a lot of attention worldwide and for good reason. For such a small country, Iceland packs a powerful punch. With over 130 active volcanoes (and new ones emerging!), to Europe's largest waterfalls, to glaciers that cover most of this island country, one thing is for certain: Iceland doesn't lack in beauty or diversity. Iceland is remote, rugged and a nature and photography-lovers paradise. In Iceland, adventure awaits around every corner.
Are you ready for a trip of a lifetime?

Lodging & Transportation
All accommodations and transportation in Iceland will be provided for you. We have thoughtfully hand-picked comfortable guesthouses and hotels along our trip. We will be staying 1-2 nights in each place which means we are moving around a lot, so you need to pack fairly light (a packing list will be sent to you prior to the trip).
Transportation will be provided in vans with room for luggage. In addition, all meals will be included (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Some meals your hosts will cook, and others we will eat at restaurants. You will need to either bring or buy your own snacks once in Iceland.
