We have been on many photo tours through the years and thought we had seen to best. Wrong! Iceland Photo Tours set up a tour which far exceeded any expectations we might have had. Everything was meticulously planned…lodging, food, transportation, and locations were all first rate. The bus was even large enough for us all to have 2 seats each! The level of attention that our guides provided was outstanding. All in all this was a very memorable trip, and we certainly would recommend Iceland Photo Tours for any Icelandic photo trip you may be contemplating.
Want to make your photos pop? Are you willing to take your photography to the next level? Do you just need to escape to some place exotic & new? Iceland Photo Tours offer just that with the convenience of transportation support, excellent lodging and great, local food options. Before, I had lots of trouble producing even a passable photo after a day of shooting, but after Iurie’s workshop I learned how to actively find and work good angles for landscape photography. Also his deep knowledge of how to post-process photos made the workshop a great value. Iurie also was very focused on our safety & didn’t take unnecessary risks during our travels. I would definitely do another workshop with Iurie again.
My wife Susan and I want to thank Iceland Photo Tours for providing the finest Photography Workshop we have attended. As novice photographers we found previous photography workshops and tours to be somewhat intimidating and overwhelming, our photo guide's entire focus was to provide exceptional guidance and attention to the entire group during the workshop. The accommodations from start to finish were first rate, the food was exceptional, and the transportation was extremely comfortable with ample room for personal space and gear. Words cannot adequately describe the locations Iurie and Edwin selected for the workshop simply “MAGICAL”. We will attend future workshops and bringing friends. Thanks again for a great experience and stunning photographs. If you are thinking about going…you won’t regret it.
I have been in many tours but this particular tour was really made for photographers. With ample time to photograph the scenes and also the proper timing in shooting these wonderful landscapes will make the experience worth it. The guides are very knowledgeable and assist us in shooting the location at the best possible conditions. Transportation and lodging is also pleasant and decent.
This was one of the best photo workshops I have been on. The places we went to were spectacular, as to be expected, but beyond the vistas, the level of professionalism and mentor-ship was second to none. Time was taken to help every student improve in composition and to see the environment in a new way despite difficult lighting conditions. There is no doubt that I improved as a photographer. The tour was very photographer specific with tons of time given to fully explore an area. There was no feeling of being rushed at all.
My husband and I have a lot of experience both in leading and participating in workshops as students, I have to say that this trip has by far been the best ever. Not only the destination, but they logistics and smoothness of operations lets you know there are true professionals behind. Our Guides will always go the extra mile, making sure every students feels special, always by us in the field, suggesting compositions, calling basic settings on every stop and really making you go home with the image you were dreaming off. They keep close tabs with weather conditions, driving the group even over an hour away if skies were clear, and adjusting the times to leave to avoid unpleasant windy condition on the road. The lectures were to the point and amazingly helpful, which is an added value to an already great experience.They even factored a couple of shopping stops, quite convenient for us with little time. Every little detail has been given careful consideration. Perfection! In other words, this has been a life-time experience and we are already booking our next tour with them.

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear at a given time. There is however always plenty to see and do if conditions do not favor any part of our original plan.
