Iceland

The perfect tour to restart, to start traveling and photographing the exclusive places of the planet. This is the 14th edition of SLPW ICELAND, which will lead participants in 4x4 to discover the wonders of the wild south, all the landmarks, some of which are extremely exclusive, including the highlight of the trip: the erupting Geldingadalir volcano. Come and breathe deeply!

For those who have long been looking forward to leaving, to get back into the game by having new photographic experiences on the field, to start breathing deeply again in front of breathtaking scenery, some even logistically demanding to reach, this is the right opportunity. For years we have been organizing landscape workshops in Iceland, a land we know well and that never ceases to fascinate us. This seven-day tour will take participants to all the scenic areas of the wild south of the island and, if the eruptive activity is still ongoing, will approach the Geldingadalir volcano. Many landmarks that will be experienced at the right times, most of them outside the usual and crowded tourist tours. The workshop, which can only take advantage of the many hours of light available in the summer, will have unusual rhythms: you will sleep in the central hours of the day and take pictures at usually unexpected times; the pace will pick up smoothly. The "important information" section contains all the specifics relating to the Covid emergency. Time to go!

Where necessary, some participants will be asked to make themselves available to the guide, with a display of a credit card as a guarantee. In the absence of volunteers it will be necessary to provide local drivers, with a considerable increase in the final cost of the tour. The option vehicles are covered by CDW insurance.
