We have a new Nordic Photo of the Month!

Congrats to Daniel and Ercy Hosie from the United States. They travelled on our Iceland Full Circle self-drive tour, which we are discovering is a favourite holiday for photographers.

Pictured is Ercy Hosie at Öndverðarnes, Iceland. This lighthouse stands watch over the Svörtuloft bird cliffs sits at the westernmost tip of Snæfellsnes Peninsula, which is a virtual gold mine for photographers! Nearby is the 1,446 m (4,744 ft) high Snæfellsjökull volcano-glacier and the Neshraun lava field.

It is, in fact, our best-selling vacation package in Iceland and is frequently the source of many client review videos and prior photo contest winners. So what is it about this 10-day tour that makes it so so popular and photogenic?

In a nutshell: amazing and diverse scenery.

The drive takes you around the Ring Road (Route 1, the main highway) and then branches off on Route 54 around the Snæfellsnes Peninsula -- part of West Iceland often overlooked but well worth a visit for its dramatic landscapes and little fishing villages.
