Iceland and Its Beauty

Iceland is steadily growing in popularity as a travel destination. You can readily see why; the distinctive and breathtakingly gorgeous scenery, the charming swimming holes, the enormous and awe-inspiring waterfalls, and the Northern Lights flashing over the sky on those long winter evenings are all popular in numerous feature films. This nation is beautiful from coast to coast, making it a photographer’s paradise. But where in Iceland are the greatest places to take pictures in the winter? To share with you, we’ve put up a list of some of our favorites.

KIRKJUFELL

Kirkjufell is one of the best places on Snaefellsnes to take pictures. Even though it’s not as popular with tourists as bigger waterfalls like Gullfoss or Skogafoss, you can often see a group of photographers with tripods standing along the riverbank. In the most recent season of Game of Thrones, it was called “Arrowhead Mountain” north of the Wall because of its unique shape. It’s a beautiful place to take pictures in the winter, but be careful around the sharp edges of the waterfall, as they can get very icy and dangerous.

SKOGAFOSS

This is another classic that is close to the Seljalandfoss waterfall. This one is difficult to photograph if there aren’t 100 people in front of you (so make sure you visit out of peak times). Because I don’t have a winter photo of this location, here’s one from the summer.

THÓRSMÖRK

This valley in the highlands, which is named for the god of thunder, is usually covered in deep snow all winter long. It’s not easy to get to because you have to cross a few frozen rivers on the way. You’ll need a super jeep trip to get there. But it’s a great way to spend the day.

SELJALANDSFOSS

As we continue to travel along the southern coast, we will come to the world-famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall. You can walk right up behind it in the summer, but in the winter it’s too icy. Big spot lights illuminate the falls at night, making nighttime photography of the falls and the aurora a must.

THE SNFELLSNES PENINSULA IS A PART OF NORWAY

Despite being only a few hours from Reykjavik, Snaefellsnes feels worlds apart from the crowds that afflict other famous places in Iceland. The entire peninsula, though, is breathtaking. The country’s mountain ranges, coastlines, and charming villages are all ready to be explored. The northern hemisphere’s location enhances the chance of a heavy layer of snow throughout the winter months. Sunlight (both direct and reflected) generates highlights and shadows in your picture, while reflections enrich the image with color and depth.

ICE CAVERNS AND GLACIERS

Along the southern coast of Iceland, you’ll find a number of photogenic glaciers. Some can be reached by automobile, but climbing them needs expertise and the proper gear (helmet, crampons, and ice axe). The majority of these locations also have Ice Caves. Given the potential danger, you should always travel with an experienced guide or tour group. Since they change annually based on what melts and freezes, it’s best to check Google for the most up-to-date figures.

STOKKSNES

The journey concludes at Stokksnes Beach in Hofn. This place is located on the East Coast, far away from Reykjavik. Nonetheless, it is one of my favorite photographic subjects. The beach’s margins are lined by dune fields, and the gloomy Vestrahorn mountain may be seen in the distance. Tourists seldom make it this far out of town, so it’s typically rather tranquil here.

Beautiful Sceneries in Morocco

Excellent Locations in Northern Morocco
However, if you have the time, you should consider visiting Asilah, Tetouan, Tangier, and Chefchaouen. These charming locations have enough entertainment to keep you occupied for a weekend or a week.

The entire year is a beautiful time to travel to northern Morocco. However, if you’re searching for the sun, it’s a good idea to keep in mind that winters might be a little cool. Due to the great weather, summer is the most popular season for tourists. However, this also implies that there are more people around because of the increase in tourists.

Due to increased demand in the summer, prices are frequently higher as well. A trip in the spring or fall may be preferable for those who want to escape the throng.

There are several methods to get up north in Morocco, regardless of the season. If you need assistance with your travel plans, northern Moroccan trips are also offered from Marrakesh. You are invited to explore these gorgeous locations in northern Morocco.

Tangier

One of the two main port cities in Morocco is Tangier. Tangier is a popular weekend destination for Morocco excursions from Spain and is situated only over the Strait of Gibraltar. The city is heavily influenced by Spain, with Spanish-style architecture and restaurants serving delectable cuisine.

There is a lot going on in the big, busy city of Tangier. Even if you enjoy traveling independently, you may want to think about joining a tour or hiring a guide because getting about might be challenging. Keep a look out for unique views like the Grande Mosquée of Tangier as you move around the city.

For some of the greatest exhibitions of contemporary Moroccan art, art enthusiasts can head to the Contemporary Art Museum. Gardens surround the museum, offering a tranquil haven away from the hectic city.

Due to the refreshing winds from the Mediterranean Sea, Tangier is a well-liked vacation spot in the summer. However, jazz fans should certainly think about going in September so they may attend the wonderful Tanjazz Festival. This yearly festival, which debuted in 1999, offers outstanding jazz artists from all around the world.

Tetouan

Tetouan is another excellent tourist destination in Northern Morocco. Tetouan, one of the two major ports on the Mediterranean Sea, is about an hour’s drive from Tangier. This city is full of character, beauty, and stunning specimens of Moroccan architecture. Tetouan is also a city steeped in history.

History aficionados might pay a visit to Tetouan’s Archaeological Museum. The library alone is worth a visit, but don’t miss the ancient tool and pottery exhibitions, which provide a picture of life “back then.”

The lovely ancient Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage site, so spend some time wandering about there. Not only will you find amazing Moroccan architecture, but you will also find numerous craftspeople. You’ll find wonderfully handcrafted products for sale and may even get the opportunity to observe a craftsmen at work.

The Ethnographic Museum is another fantastic museum to see in Tetouan. This magnificent museum, founded in 1928, is committed to educate the public about Moroccan culture. This museum is a must-see for everyone interested in learning about the Moroccan people.

Foodies will enjoy the wonderful cuisine, which includes everything from seafood to traditional Moroccan fare. And if you’ve always wanted to visit a Mediterranean beach, there are several beautiful ones not far from Tetouan. The beaches of Tetouan are a nice retreat from the busy port city during the summer, but quiet and isolated the rest of the year.

With so much to see and do in Tetouan, you might want to stay for the weekend!
