Landscape ace Guy Edwardes is ready to take you on a tour of Iceland's wonderful landscapes...
By Andrew James
We are delighted that Guy Edwardes will be leading an Iceland 2018 tour for FotoBuzz. The tour is open to 7 people and runs from March 4-14, 2017.
Full details and final costs will be released when finalised but the basic run down is similar to the 2017 tour that can be read about in the Meetup report, along with images from those who went on the workshop. Members can nip along to the Past Meetup Tab and click on the blue report button for Iceland 2017.
You'll find that everyone who went to Iceland with us this year recommends this as a completely awesome adventure.
Expected costs are likely to be just over £4,000 and the cost will include your return airfares and accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis only, plus travel around Iceland in a 4x4 caravells driven by Guy.
Accommodation is based on a shared room basis. There is also limited single occupancy options that will obviously have a supplement charge added to them, so this will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
This trip will feature 10 days 'in the field' enjoying the wonders of Iceland. The tour will take place March 4 to March 14, 2018. You will travel from location to location (such as Snaefellsnes, Vik, Selfoss, and Hofn) and stay in a variety of hotels to make the most of the remarkable Icelandic scenery.
The trip begins in Reykjavik and travels up to Snaefellsness to photograph spectacular coastline and the famous Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall. Next you will head along the south coast taking in Geyser and Gullfoss on your way to Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon and Diamond Beach. You will continue all the way to Hofn and the stunning coastal cliffs of Vestrahorn before making your way back past Vik, the Reynisdrangur sea stacks, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls. You will visit geothermal areas and there is the option of a Ice Cave tour (which we highly recommend).
Guy will chase the light and locations as hard as possible and that will mean early mornings and late nights, especially if there is a chance of Northern lights. There will be a 'free' day halfway through to allow you to catch your breath, although Guy will do that where there is some fantastic shooting opportunities just a short walk away and of course for those that want to, you can still get up and silly O'Clock to do some shooing with Guy.
To come on this trip you don't have to be superfit but you do need to feel confident enough to be able to walk on rough terrain, get a bit battered by the weather from time to time, potentially go in an ice cave and on a glacier.
