ICELAND – A Photographic Impression
I had the pleasure of guiding 8 great Irish photographers on a Photo Workshop tour from Snæfellsnes in the West, to the Ice Lagoon (Jökulsárlón) in the South.
They decide to put together a book with a selection of the images from that tour – using the Book module in Lightroom – Each photographer put six photographs in the book so it looks really beautiful and unique. I really love the front page as I’m on it (if you count the shadows you will count nine)
Dear friends Michael Delahunty, Chris Ducker, Gerald Kelleher, John Kent, Ronnie Kilkenny, Peter MacMenamin, Fergal O’Callaghan and Charlie O’Neill, thank you so much for the honor of being one of the few who own this book and for absolutely great trip. Really looking forward to see you soon again.

Discover Wild Iceland – Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull
The other day my son Thorsteinn took me for a guided hiking tour on the icefall Sólheimajökull. I really must say he is goooooood . . . . and what an experience. I really can recommend a tour like this as this is something you will never forget.
It’s like entering into another dimension, Woow.
Thorsteinn has worked in the tourism industry as a guide since 2013 were he specializes in activity based tours such as wilderness hiking, caving, glacier hiking and climbing. Having a considerable interest in geology and history he usually has a story ready up his sleeve.
“It‘s not just about getting there, but also about getting back so you can brag about it”
His official education Includes:
– Mountaineering (F.A.S.)
– Wilderness Aid ( Landsbjörg)
– Adventure sport certificate (Thompson Rivers Uni./Keilir)
– Wilderness first responder (Wilderness medical association)
Soon, Discover Wild Iceland will offer private tours on Sólheimajökull where Thor (Thorsteinn) will be your private guide and if you are interested just send us an e-mail to email@example.com and we will send you a quota and tell you all about it.
