This must be the longest time I have taken in assimilating thoughts for writing testimonial for a tour and that too when Xploring Light and UAE Landscapers deserve it totally as it has truly been the trip of my life!…

Get a glimpse of what’s in store
Iceland is a country of extreme contrasts. Widely known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, Iceland is home to some of the largest glaciers in Europe, and some of the world’s most active volcanoes.
Iceland is also the land of light and darkness. Long summer days with near 24-hours of sunshine are offset by short winter days with only few hours of daylight.
Iceland in the early fall is a very special time. The Moss and grasses are vibrant green; the days are fairly normal in length & darkness at night started to come in & we start to have the chance for Aurora Borealis. Iceland is known for its beautiful Waterfalls, Jagged mountain peaks, infinite Ocean, Glaciers, Icebergs of all sizes, beautiful Churches, Ancient ruins & more. It’s a paradise for photographers imagine photographing all these locations during golden light, with dancing Northern Lights during the nights. It’s so satisfying all your worries melt away as you escape to capture the exquisite beauty before you at every turn.
