Iceland North Eastern Landscape Extension Workshop

October 11th - October 16th 2023

After the 2023 Greenland expedition 2023 (Read the Trip Report), I ran an optional extension workshop in Iceland that took our group from the northern port of Aukeryri (where we docked from our Greenland expedition) southeast and back to Reykjavik. The extension ran for six days and focused on the landscapes in this area of Iceland as the country transitioned from Autumn to Winter. The southeast of Iceland can be a bustling place, with tens of thousands of tourists visiting many of its iconic waterfalls and nature attractions. We aimed to avoid some tourist hot spots and instead focus on more remote and isolated locations that offer unsaturated opportunities. Of course, some locations (such as Jokulsarlon and Stokesness) are so iconic they are always a must-visit.
