South Coast and Creativity in the Eyjafallajökull Area / COLOR YOUR MIND
You can choose to be picked up at our office parking lot at KORPÚLFSSTAÐIR, Thorsvegi 1, 112 Reykjavík at 7.45 a.m., or in the parking lot in front of the art museum KJARVALSSTAÐIR at 8.30 a.m.. See the map at ABOUT US on this webpage.
Duration 11 hours.
The tour starts in front of the art museum KJARVALSSTAÐIR, Flókagata 24, 105 Reykjavík.
We will drive along the south shore to the dramatic landscapes of the EYJAFJALLAJÖKULL AREA, famous for the 2010 eruption. As we get closer to the volcano Eyjafjallajökull, we will stop and learn the skills to capture its beauty through drawing, painting and photography (this may depend on the weather, but the volcano is usually visible). We will drive on and stop again to draw and photograph the volcano STÓRI DÍMON. This will heat up our senses as we feel the energy of the land around us, and pay close attention to forms, colors, and contrasts. In case you had any doubts, the volcanic landscape will show that ash is still part of nature, and that its colors are wonderful.
Our next stop will be SELJALANDSFOSS, one of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. From there we will drive to SKÓGARFOSS, a waterfall which is 60 meters high. In this area is the museum SKÓGARSAFN, founded by Þórður Tómasson (entrance to the museum is included in the tour price.) Here you will choose an item from the south coast’s past to draw. The museum has 12.000 items, so don’t worry about not being able to find one you like. There is also a restaurant serving lunch, so we will stop in SKÓGAR for 2 hours (lunch is not included in the tour price.)
After lunch, we will drive to REYNISFJARA to take dramatic pictures on one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. You will find your camera playing a big role here, to help capture the memory of an otherworldly beach and what we hope will be an unforgettable moment in your life.
On the way back we will stop at the town HVOLSVÖLLUR, and then start back to REYKJAVÍK. We will drive you to your hotel or to the city center. Let a professional artist take you into this unbelievable natural wonder to paint - and to color your mind too.
The minimum age for this tour is 13 years. Materials for drawing and painting will be provided.
Please be on time. We cannot wait three minutes past the pick up time. Sometimes we will be late due to traffic or the weather, but we will make every effort to be on time.
