Behind the scenes video of SHAMAYIM's 2018 Photo Shoot Expedition to Iceland.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Dates / Aug 23-26 2019

The Iceland Expedition 2019

This is a Level 4 All-Inclusive Expedition

We promise you that this place is a photo shoot dream. Black sand beaches, volcanoes, mountain ranges, glaciers, and so much more. An underpopulated island marooned near the top of the globe, Iceland is, literally, a country in the making. It's a vast volcanic laboratory where mighty forces shape the earth: geysers, ice-covered volcanoes rumble and glaciers cut great pathways through the mountains. Its supercharged splendor seems designed to remind visitors of their utter insignificance in the greater scheme of things. And it works a treat: some crisp clean air, an eyeful of the cinematic landscapes, and everyone is transfixed.

Expedition Schedule

Day 1 - Arrival (non shoot date)

Day 2- Shoot Day at Reynisdrangar. Impressive rock formations situated near the shore of Reynisfjara black sand beach by the coastal village Vík on the South Coast of Iceland. 


The formations are the remains of large and imposing sea cliffs, made up of basalt, that serve as a vital part of the area’s allure; they shoot dramatically out of the ocean under the looming cliffs of Mt. Reynisfjall, making for a beautiful site, and have a folklore that is equally impressive. This destination was the site of one of the most dramatic locations on the show Game of Thrones.

Day 3- Shoot Day Skógafoss is one of Iceland’s biggest and most beautiful waterfalls with an astounding width of 25 meters (82 feet) and a drop of 60 meters (197 feet). 

Due to the amount of spray the cascade produces, at least one rainbow is present any time the sun emerges from behind the clouds.

Located on the Skógá river, this mighty cascade is clearly visible from Route 1 and is an excellent place to stop and stretch the legs while travelling Iceland’s South Coast.
