Epic Landscapes by Day – Northern Lights & Star Trails by Night

DECEMBER 3-9, 2025

7-DAY WORKSHOP – $3995*

MEET AND GREET ON DEC 2, 2025 AT 7PM at the **Recommended hotel at the Reykjavik Airport

*Price includes accommodations for 4 nights in Vik and 2 nights in the Westman Islands but students will be responsible for their own accommodations in Reykjavik on Dec 2 and upon return to Reykjavik on Dec 9.

December 3-7:  After our Meet and Greet in Reykjavik, we will leave the following morning on Dec 3 in our two vans for the town of Vik, stopping along the way to capture the beautiful scenery of Iceland.  We will make our way to our accommodations in Vik, where we will lodge for the next four nights at the Hotel Vik í Myrdal.

Dec 7-9:  After breakfast on the morning of Dec 7, we will take the ferry from Vik to the amazing Westman Islands, where we will lodge for two nights at the Hotel Eyjar.

Waterfalls, glaciers, seascapes, beautiful vistas and gorgeous mountainscapes are seen almost at every turn and of course, weather permitting, we will also be shooting the Northern Lights and star trails in Vik, the Westman Islands and along the way while driving in this absolutely picturesque country.

We check out of our hotel in the Westman Islands on the morning of Dec 9 and take a slow drive back towards Reykjavik. We plan to arrive at Keflavik International Airport by 2pm so if you are planning on flying home or to your next destination on that day, arrange your return flight accordingly.
