I was in Iceland in October, 2015. Top on the list was to photograph the Northern Lights. Had just 3 nights. Olgeir Andresson called me unexpectantly on day 1 & he did not disappoint. Even though I had been up for 39 hours it was worth every amazing moment. Olgeir was patient & was truly engaged in getting me the... More

I had the pleasure of attending the winter workshop with Iurie Belegurschi and Johnathan Esper. The workshop was excellent, exceeded my initial expectations and it was definitely a week that will never be forgotten. Iurie is very professional and a modest person and I admire his relentless pursuit of the group satisfaction. Even after being able to successfully see the... More

Just finished an incredible photo tour with Tony from Aurora photo tours. We saw some of the most amazing scenery and with his expert guidance got photos that are incredible and will allow us to remember our terrific experience forever. Tony is a genius when it comes to landscape photography. He patiently and clearly shared his knowledge and showed us... More

As always said, you have to be lucky to see the auroa over reyjavik. Usually you need to book the tour and you will be taken outside Reyjavik with buses. You can go several times without luck. Usually companies will take you for free several times until you see the aurora or its time for you to head home without... More

Hi Lulu, we have never taken people out to see the aurora on buses, we only do this in a private jeep with a professional photo guide and only when there is a high chance of seeing the aurora. I think your review is about one of the bus companies that take people out in any conditions. I have asked... More

I like to plan ahead when traveling and Andri was extremely helpful with suggestions to research before we made final decisions. He was able to help us to make the most of a 7 day visit. I came to trust him so much that after our main objectives were seen we put ourselves in his capable hands. He was wonderfully... More

I had a 5 day Photo Workshop with Owen and Tony, and I can't recommend Iceland Aurora Photo Tours highly enough. I rode with Owen as we traveled South through Vik, Vatnajokull, Hofn, and several other places I dare not try to spell! Owen, being a former geology professor, had a wealth of knowledge about the landscapes and how they... More

This is something everyone should try, the surroundings and everything there is just fantastic. If you have good weather you will be blown away this is just a one of a kind experience.

Olgier was, by far, the greatest tour guide of all time. His snarky personality, along with his sheer intelligence, made for the best combination ever. First, can we just talk about how many people Olgier helped throughout the day? From PUSHING a German couple's car out of the sand to giving directions to a lost New Zealand couple, he constantly...

The entire experience was warming to the heart. Our guide, Owen Hunt, was the friendliest and most knowledgeable person I have ever had the pleasure of being on a tour with. He knew the area in detail, had a wonderful sense of humor and was so very helpful with the luggage, the camera gear and helping in any way he... More
