Custom Photo Tour
Take your Iceland escape to another level with our bespoke service and design a custom photo tour. If you want to get lost in the back of beyond with the untouched parts of Iceland, a custom photo tour could be just the ticket.
If you want something that is not listed or you just wanted to see things differently, we can take you where you want to go. We go to all parts of Iceland and can create a bespoke itinerary to suit your photography interests.
Custom trips can be 1 – 12 days, overnight accommodation will be arranged by a travel agent if suitable. It is possible to book up to 10 days below. If you require a longer tour please be in touch via the contact form below.
Tailor made tours are normally private, but you can choose to share your custom tour with other passengers if they have the same interests. This generally works better with shorter custom tours. Please see current, shared photo tour requests.
Custom Multi-Day tour
All our multi-day Iceland photo tours are private and tailor made to suit the needs of the individual or the group. They are designed by photographers with many years experience of photographing Iceland. All multi-day photo tours are scheduled to get the best available light and may involve photographing through night hours in mid-summer.
- Transportation in a suitable SUV
- Expert photography assistance
- Available all year
Summer: (June-August) There are no chance of Auroras during the Summer months, but there is great access to the interior mountain regions where you can experience the magnificence of raw, volcanic landscapes in beautiful light… For a photo tour like this, participants need to be prepared to camp and travel for long periods over rough terrain in a modified Jeep. Camping gear can be supplied including Tents, sleeping bags, mattress, very basic cooking equipment (an extra charge may apply at the discretion of the instructor). A more comfortable version using hotels near the park entrances can also be arranged.
Winter: (September-April) In the Winter, travel is significantly more challenging and we are limited to maintained roads. Normally tours are limited to the South coast, but if conditions are good, we can explore the North of Iceland.
The limited daylight hours offer superb light and Winter weather provides no shortage of drama. The nights offer superb opportunities for star or aurora photography.
