June 17-23, 2018 Iceland Equine Photo Tour
If you ever dreamed of photographing horses in Iceland, this is your chance. Spend five days shooting the beautiful Icelandic Horse with the iconic Iceland landscape as your backdrop. We will stay at a farm in southern Iceland where we will have the opportunity to shoot horses at liberty, mares and foals, stallions, horses and riders on the beach and at the waterfall, silhouettes, portraits and more. You will have the unique opportunity to ride and experience the tolt or explore the surrounding area.
During free time there are two beautiful and famous waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, only minutes away. The famous, black beaches of Vik are an 1.5 hour away from the farm where you can see basalt columns, caves and seabirds. Experience the local flavor in the Halldorskaffi Restaurant where you can dine on Arctic Char (a fresh, local fish) or the Skyr Cake. Skyr is Iceland Yogurt!
5 days to shoot at the farm with equine shoots scheduled . . . extra days to allow for inclement weather, meals included and one two hour horseback ride. Imagine looking out the window each morning to see Icelandic Foals playing on the hillside! There is now a luxury hotel at the farm for those that prefer a private room. However, these rooms fill quickly so if interested early reservations are recommended. For shared accomodations at the farm, there is a bunk room where you will have your own lower bunk and a shared bath. The food at the farm is wonderful and can accomodate the vegetarian diet as well. Johanna and Mummi, the farm owners, and our horse “wranglers” are fabulous to work with and eager to make your stay unforgettable!
