This is a unique and very special opportunity for a small group of just five passionate photographers to photograph wild Arctic Foxes at Hornvik in the remote northwest of Iceland during winter. We will travel by private charter boat to the remote Arctic peninsula in the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve to photograph nature’s most incredible survivor - The Arctic Fox.

Arctic Foxes are unfortunately hunted and shot across most of Iceland, making them extremely shy and difficult to find (and even more challenging to photograph). In the remote northwest, however, the Arctic Foxes are protected inside the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and can be more easily approached and photographed.

For this expedition, we will travel by boat to the northernmost tip of Iceland to Hornvik. It is a stunning location that offers precipitous peaks and dramatic mountains as a backdrop to the Arctic foxes that inhabit this area. The density of Arctic foxes is the highest in Iceland at this location and we expect to see and photograph many foxes during the expedition. There are also substantial landscape and wildlife opportunities in this rarely visited location in winter.

This photography expedition will last for 7 days (6 nights). We will stay in a small, remote cabin that is rustic but functional and clean. During our stay in the cabin, we will have a dedicated staff member to clean and prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us (all included). However, this expedition is all about photography. We will work long hours in the field to ensure we give ourselves the best possible opportunities to photograph the Arctic Fox. We may take food and drink into the field to ensure we are positioned and ready to photograph when the foxes are active. We will have up to 10 hours of daylight to photograph the Arctic foxes. With luck, we may also see and photograph the spectacular Northern lights.
