Iceland – Heading North for 2018 Arctic Fox Expedition

This afternoon I arrived in Iceland after my recent Lofoten Winter workshop. As always, it is wonderful to be back in the land of fire and ice during the arctic winter months. Contrary to conditions at the same time last year Iceland has born the full front of winter this year with frequent storms blowing down from above the Arctic circle. As a result there have been many road closures and flight cancellations. It is my hope that tomorrow all will go well for our groups flight up to Isafjord and subsequent boat ride out to the remote Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. Reports of deep snow across the reserve have me itching to get underway to photograph Arctic Fox in a beautiful winter setting.It is little known outside of Iceland, but the Hornstrandir Nature reserve is one of the best and most reliable places in the Arctic to photograph both the white and blue morph Arctic Fox. For the last five years I have been travelling to Hornstrandir to photograph the fox during the winter months. With access to a remote and recently renovated house we have all the feature comforts of home for our stay in the reserve.

If you are interested in photographing Arctic Fox bookings are now open for my 2019 expedition. expedition is limited to just five photographers and will run from the 22nd – 28th of February 2019. Places on the expedition are extremely limited and once spoken for thats it.
