“Amazing”

“The Workshop couldn’t have been any more perfect. It was organized perfectly and I really felt like with the short day light hours the trip took advantage of ever second so I didn’t lose out on any photo possibilities. Shoutout to Siggi and Oli for being the best guides you could ask for. Will definitely be returning.”

“Amazing Places, Solid Instruction”

“If you are a landscape photographer and want to get some once in a lifetime shots, I would highly recommend this tour. Siggi the Viking was the tour group leader and Oli was the expert driver and fun commentator. I did the 4 day tour which included the two things I have wished to see most-the ice caves, and the icebergs that washed up on the Black sand beach. Both of these are incredibly beautiful and photographic paradise! I felt like the instruction was really just about right-both of the leaders were present all of the time, always asked if everything was OK, were there to give guidance and expertise if you needed it, but we’re never pressuring you in anyway. They are both very funny and interesting guys, a pleasure to hang out with for a few days.”

“The two different accommodations were both very nice-fairly basic but extremely clean. The food was excellent everywhere. Please note that Iceland is a very expensive country to eat, but I did not even have one meal that was subpar. If you are a Vegan, you may want to bring your own food :-). The arctic char, cod, and lamb are all outstanding.”

“I noticed that 95% of the reviews are five star reviews, the other reviews noted that the weather was not great. Of course, the tour company has no control over this. I feel very strongly that they made the most out of our trip when the weather was challenging. For example, we switched days of visiting different sites so we could have the possibility of seeing the northern lights, as the day we were supposed to see the northern lights was pretty cloudy. I wouldn’t change much about this tour-I really enjoyed it immensely as did my travel companion. I met a lot of fun and interesting people that I plan on staying in contact with. Very happy!”

“4-day-tour… beyond amazing!!!”

“I am an absolute beginner in photography and rented all the camera equipment for the trip. First: Iceland is a country I fell in love at first sight. Beauty wherever you look. Wild and pure nature. Second: Our guides Siggi and Óli (both professional photographers and experienced guides) where amazing!!! Iceland is a rough country but I felt save the whole whether we were hiking glaciers or hunting northern lights. They always granted our safety without reducing the fun of the trip. Siggi adjusted our tour every day due to weather conditions to make the most of the 4-day-trip. Also the accomodation was chosen wisely. Comfortable rooms and delicious food.”

“And my special thank to Siggi not giving up on me when I wanted to give up on taking pictures the 2nd. You encouraged me to go on and explained everything to me how to use the camera to get amazing shots. You are an amazing photography teacher!!!”

“I am addicted to photography now and today I bought the camera I rented before. 🙂 Everything was so well organised. Before the trip started I got thoroughly briefed so I was prepared with the right clothes and the right equipment to enjoy everything. Thank you for that mind blowing trip.”

“Siggy – best photo guide ever”

“I joined the 4 day winter photography tour in Dec 2018 with Siggi and would consider myself not as super professional photographer. However, I had the most amazing time in a small group and Siggi as guide. He is a very nice guy, we had a lot of fun, great experiences in taking pictures of the beautiful nature and hidden places Siggi knew of. He adjusts the plans according to weather conditions and the best potential to take pictures of northern lights etc.”

“All in all, you can’t do any better than booking this trip with Siggi as guide.”

“3 Day Summer South Coast Tour and 4 Day Winter Vatnajokull, Northern Lights and Ice Cave Tour”

“I just recently returned from my second workshop with Iceland Photo Tours. Both workshops were lead by Siggy. In August 2018 I participated in a 3 day South Coast tour and had so much fun I couldn’t wait to come back for more. When I learned that Siggy would be guiding a 4 day Ice Cave/Northern Light tour, I immediately registered and was back in Iceland in December 2018. For both visits, the tour provided very comfortable vehicles and excellent hotel accommodations. Siggy was very attentive and went out of his way to make sure everyone was getting the best experience and capturing the shots they desired. During both visits, we had some unfortunate bad weather, but Siggy was able to monitor conditions and use his knowledge and experience to rearrange our agenda so we could still get the best experience given the conditions. His friendly and funny demeanor always made for lots of fun along the way. I highly recommend Iceland Photo Tours and Siggy as a tour guide.”
