The best free way to discover Iceland during summer time is to use a small tent to sleep in great landscapes close from the sea, lakes and iceland waterfalls.
Most of the camping areas are easy for access with good facilities, hot showers and always very close to the best photo spot.
The workshop will start at early morning and late at night with long exposures.
Free to move when you decide to move :
With individual tents we are free to stop everywhere with no stress to find a camping close to a good photo spot.
We are free to decide to move when we decide to and easy to modify our route if necessary.
The light is never down during that period and it’s so easy to install your tent within 30 minutes, there is really no stress to be somewhere before night because there is really no night during that period.
Accommodations and meals :
We will take our Breakfast, lunch and dinner and the best cafés and restaurants around the camp and the best photo spot.
That period is the best time of the year for camping but it’s also the best way to be free to move without booking rooms in hotels or guesthouses in advance.
During the tour we will use municipal pools for swimming and hot spots available in the pools to relax.
