Jan 2014
The Aurora Borealis was one of my “had to photograph” dreams. Tony and Iceland Aurora Tours exceeded my expectations. His knowledge of Iceland gave us the advantage to see and photograph some of the most interesting landscapes locations. We had the opportunity to photograph a spectacular aurora show. The ice beach in the morning was a bonus. Tony and Owen were available to assist and guide you with suggestions and tips to improve your photography. Iceland should be on everyone’s list and Tony should be your host.
