Description

During this trip, I propose you to discover a little frequented Iceland, wilder, very rural, between fjords and fishing. You will visit two national parks with a strong naturalistic interest with seals, polar foxes, puffins and many other birds.

During this 10 days and 9 nights trip, you will live 8 days of roaming along a circuit that goes up the west coast and its fjords to the northern tip, before going down by the interior of the highlands and the "golden circle" to finish by the Reykjanes peninsula. Thanks to the 4WD vehicle, we will be able to reach exceptional sites which make the fame of Iceland. I chose the month of June because of the strong animal activity and to bring back magnificent images.

If you are interested in photo trips, why not let yourself be tempted by these stays in the countryside of Tuscany, in the Gran Paradiso National Park, in the sea and mountain atmosphere of Corsica or in Bardenas desert?
