Spots are now available on separate Backcountry Journeys Glacier National Park photo tours this July and August, as well as September in Iceland!
Three spots are currently open on our July 21st to 26th, trip, as well as four spots remain on our August 11th to 16th trip. Both of these tours are Hiker Photo versions of our world-class tours.
Be sure to grab your spot on one of these hugely popular summer tours to see and photograph “America’s Switzerland.”
(Read more on the difference between our Hiker and Standard photo tours before deciding if this style is right for you).
Glacier National Park is truly a photographer’s playground with two unique mountain ranges on display as well as over 130 glassy lakes sitting inside a completely intact ecosystem known as the “Crown of the Continent Ecosystem.
Join us this summer to explore and photograph the alpine artistry of Many Glacier as well as Wild Goose Island on Saint Mary Lake at sunrise, which may be one of the most photogenic lakes in the world. During this 6-day tour, we’ll also photograph iconic locations such as Going-to-the-Sun Road, as well as the breathtaking Lake MacDonald with its jagged mountain backdrop.
“Far away in northwestern Montana, hidden from view by clustering mountain peaks, lies an unmapped corner—the Crown of the Continent.”
-George Bird Grinnell (1901)
Two spots remain on our September 12th to 23rd Best of Iceland – Autumn standard photo tour!
As most landscape photographer will tell you, Iceland is home to some of the best opportunities in the world. Autumn in Iceland is especially wonderful, however, as the fall colors soften the harsh edges of this volcanic terrain.
Join Backcountry Journeys as our September adventure will take us to the famous Ring Road, in addition to days in the remarkable Central Highlands, which encompass a vast part of the island and contain some of the country’s best natural scenery, with some mountain peaks reaching heights between 3,000 and 6,500 feet. Click here to book these two spots before they are gone!
Kenton Krueger grew up and spent the first 33 years of his life in the corn country of Omaha, Nebraska. After studying at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Aviation Institute, he “conned” his way into the newsroom at the award-winning Omaha World-Herald, where for 3+ years he wrote news articles and photographed on a variety of topics such as community events, travel, and even mixed martial arts. Yet something was missing. While on backpacking trips to Grand Teton and Grand Canyon National Parks in the mid-2000’s he was quick to realize that the wild lands of the western United States stoked a fire in his heart as nothing else could. This realization led to a relocation to Flagstaff, Arizona, where he hasn’t looked back. He has spent the past several years guiding backpackers, hikers and photographers into the wild places of the American West such as Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite National Parks as well as in the Grand Staircase Escalante in southern Utah, and internationally in Costa Rica. In addition to backpacking and camping, his adventures include rock climbing, exploring the slot canyons of southern Utah and mountain biking. Kenton looks forward to utilizing his years of guiding experience, combined with his passion and experience behind the lens, to provide memorable and unforgettable experiences at the wild places we will visit together.
