We are excited to announce the release of our latest international trip: The Best of Iceland – Autumn. Backcountry Journeys has developed a fantastic itinerary along with local Icelandic photographers that explores Iceland’s famous Ring Road along with a few days in the Central Highlands to focus on some of the best landscape photography on Earth! Massive waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes, hot springs and glaciers abound on this stunningly beautiful arctic island as well as black sand beaches, the beautiful Icelandic Horse and a vibrant local culture. Travel to Iceland in the fall season to take advantage of fiery fall colors, fewer crowds, generally clear weather and dark skies to photograph the Northern Lights. Our 12 day expedition is all-inclusive and encompasses the best Iceland has to offer in one of it’s photographically richest seasons.
This will be a very popular trip with our Backcountry Journeys photographers. It was “pre” announced last week and it is already half-full for 2019! As this is the “official” trip announcement we are offering an exciting 20% discount to the first two reservations that come in! Join us in Iceland this year and get 20% off your trip. (please that this special can be used for the 2020 trip as well!)

Russ Nordstrand is an award winning Landscape & Wildlife Photographer based in Flagstaff, Arizona. His Fine Art Prints are hanging in private collections throughout the world and he runs Photography Tours & Workshops in the most beautiful and inspirtational locations in the Western United States and beyond.
Russ has been hiking, backpacking, photographing and guiding people in the wilderness areas, deserts, canyons and mountains of the world since 1997. He has logged thousands of miles on the trail and for many years in the past decade over half of his nights were spent in a tent in some far flung outdoor destination.
His Photography reflects an awe and admiration of the great, wide and still wild world we live in. Often his subjects include towering canyon walls, mist shrouded mountain lakes or wildlife in their natural habitat. It also reflects a commitment to preserving these places for the health of our world and for those who come after.
It would be a lie to say he does it completely from an altruistic standpoint. Like any great outdoor photographer he loves the thrill of wild, remote places and the accomplishment of nailing that shot after waking up three hours before dawn and hiking in the dark!
