Discovering East Iceland's Natural Wonders:
In early August, East Iceland showcases its most captivating natural wonders. From impressive waterfalls like Hengifoss, the beautiful basalt columns in Stuðlagil canyon to serene lakes such as Lagarfljót, this region is a paradise for nature photographers. Explore the rugged terrains, hike the breathtaking trails, and witness the ethereal beauty of the region's majestic waterfalls, including the iconic Dettifoss.
Charming Coastal Villages and Authentic Culture:
East Iceland is home to a cluster of quaint coastal villages that provide ample opportunities for capturing the essence of local life. Stroll through the vibrant streets of Seydisfjordur, a charming town renowned for its colorful houses and artistic flair. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of the area, interact with friendly locals, and document their way of life through your lens.
Puffins, Wildlife, and Bird Photography:
Early August marks the peak season for birdwatching and wildlife photography in East Iceland. Venture to the remote puffin colonies at Borgarfjordur Eystri, where you can observe these charming seabirds close-up in their natural habitat. Keep your camera ready to capture other fascinating bird species, such as guillemots, kittiwakes, and arctic terns, as they nest and frolic along the rugged coastal cliffs. Reindeer can also be spotted in the east of Iceland if you're lucky.
Golden Light and Midnight Sun:
One of the highlights of visiting East Iceland in early August is the enchanting phenomenon of the midnight sun. Experience the ethereal golden light that bathes the landscape, casting an otherworldly glow on glaciers, mountains, and fjords. Capture the surreal landscapes illuminated by this magical light, and discover the unique challenges and rewards of shooting in extended daylight hours. At the coast you can also expect fog or low clouds coming in from the Atlantic ocean, that can make the landscape even more interesting.
