The break runs from 28 February to 4 March 2012 and comprises return flights from London Gatwick to Reykjavik, airport transfers, five nights half board accommodation in Hotel Hengill, transfers to photography locations and six days of professional tuition.

Next year, it is estimated, will be the solar maximum, a time of high levels of activity in the solar cycle of the sun, and experts predict the Aurora Borealis will shine at its brightest for many years making it a fantastic time to photograph the Lights.

This holidays is based in the Pingvallavatn, an area of Iceland far away from the light pollution of the capital, and one that is renowned for its amazing views of the Aurora Borealis. It is surrounded by mountains, volcanoes, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, forests and churches which will add drama and colour to participant’s Aurora photography.

This master class in Aurora techniques will be lead by one of Britain’s great landscape photographers, Nick Jenkins.
