          Terrific Guide. Beyond knowledgable & passionate. 100% would recommend
          When he says 93% guarantee of seeing the lights, Bragi is not joking. With his expertise and a bit of luck, we saw lights that were a "once in 5 year event". Stunning colors, great eye. Highly helpful with guiding me for night sky photography and getting the right shots. 10/10 would recommend for best chance to see anything good.

          Incredible Experience
          I’m so grateful for Bragi and his efforts to give us the best northern lights experience. We tried for multiple days for a clear view, and he was so encouraging when we were almost ready to give up! The results were a spectacular memory, enjoyable company and beautiful photos. Thank you Bragi!!

          The best!!!
          Odinn made our holiday in Iceland memorable! If ever we are to come back, we will definitely seek his services again! Highly recommended! He is the best! Very nice, cheerful, professional, kind and he really finds a way to make your visit count and worthwhile. We had beautiful and exceptional photos from our trip which Odinn took. Our experience in Iceland was perfect and we have Odinn to thank for. Highly recommended!

          Northern Lights Photography Tour
          We had a wonderful experience on our Northern Lights tour with Arctic Shots. We arrived in Reykavik on November 18 for a 9 night trip and were lucky enough to see the lights our first night! I arranged the trip through Braggi and he monitored the weather and aurora possibility in advance. Odinn took over as our guide and photographer. While I am a somewhat experienced photographer I do not do a lot of night photography. Odinn showed me how to focus my camera in the dark as well as the settings I should use to capture the lights. He also taught us how to recognize the start of the lights which was hugely helpful on the rest of our trip and we ended up seeing the lights at least 4 more times on this trip. Odinn also took photos of us which was very nice and included in the cost. We highly recommend this tour!

          These guys are the real deal
          Bragi and Odinn really went above and beyond to give us the best chance possible of catching the Northern Lights! Having been travelling in Iceland for two weeks already under less than ideal conditions, we were not hopeful of seeing the lights before heading home. The last two nights we had available for the tour was tricky, as the forecast was not great (one day had low activity, but the other day had high activity but risk of cloud cover). Bragi really monitored the situation throughout the day, and kept in close contact with us while we were out travelling. At the last minute he made the call that we should go the same day, as he was not confident about the next day. This was contrary to what other websites were telling us, but what a good call it was! The lights put on a spectacular show for us… it was completely unreal. We travelled in a small group with just another couple, which made it very personalised and intimate. Our guide, Odinn, an extremely talented photographer in his own right, really helped us find the best spot. I was such a “noob” and he was patient to teach me the correct settings on my camera and how to set up the shots. He even took really fantastic photos of us WITH the lights. These guys really are professionals in what they do, and I cannot recommend them enough! P/S: What I have learnt is that the lights are unpredictable and elusive, so do give them a few dates to work with so they can plan for the best opportunity. Also be spontaneous and be willing to change your plans.

          Wonderful Northern Lights Experience
          Bragi is just terrific! This was my second trip to Iceland and I immediately reached out to Bragi to book a Northern lights hunt/photo shoot— because my experience five years ago was absolutely amazing. And he did not disappoint! Even though it was cloudy and there were some questions about when/where we’d be able to see the lights… Or even if we would be able to see them… Bragi persevered and found us a great location to view and photograph. He also helped me learn my new camera, canon R5 and we spend a lovely part day on the peninsula Exploring the amazing sites so close to Reykjavík. Can’t wait to go back to Iceland and we’ll book Bragi again!!!

          Amazing northern lights experience
          I can’t express enough how thankful I am to Bragi putting in the time and experience to ensuring we saw the Northern lights. Despite the cloud cover Bragi was still able to find a gap where the Northern lights danced around the sky around us. As a novice to photography I was nervous to show my inexperience but Bragi put me at my ease and helped me set my camera up with the necessary settings and positioning so I was able to take artistic shots of the Northern lights.

          Wonderful experience!
          Extraordinary experience. Artic Shots kept us informed all day about the likelihood of seeing the lights. Odinn was amazing. He knows where to go to find the lights and has such depth of knowledge about both the lights and photography. Highlight of our trip!

          Artic Shots ... the best tour in Iceland !!
          A northern lights tour with Artic Shots is a must-do experience, while in Iceland. Odinn did a fabulous job selecting a location and helping me set up my camera for beautiful shots of the light display. I was originally supposed to go on Friday night and it was cancelled due to cloud cover. We went on Saturday instead, despite only a 30-40% chance of seeing them. Odinn left it up to me, whether I wanted to go or cancel. Since it was my last opportunity, I decided take a chance and am delighted I did. Odinn is a pro and if there were lights to be seen ... he'd find them and he did !! Thank you for helping me achieve one of my bucket list items. Of note ... Artic Shots communicated throughout the day on both Friday and Saturday about the weather, conditions and likelihood and waited as late as possible (~8pm) to make a call, as conditions are every changing. I appreciated the extent of communication. I would recommend Arctic Shots without hesitation !!

          Phenomenal, Unforgettable Night
          Surreal night. We contemplated using the typical bigger tour companies for our aurora hunting and we were so glad we decided to go with Arctic Shots. Bragi knows the best secret places for that magical moment to see the aurora. Plus its a private tour so you are not watching the aurora with a bus full of people. You can take your time. It was a special moment with just us and Bragi bought some hot chocolate and Icelandic alcohol to cheers to a beautiful night. Bragi with his awesome professional photography skills also ensured that we captured memory for life. It was a memorable night and our photos turned out phenomenal.

          Great communication with Arctic Shots
          Unfortunately, our trip was cancelled due to bad weather and low activity of the Northern lights. But communication with Bragi from Arctic Shots was great, which we appreciate. We got our money back very quickly. If we go to Iceland again, we will book a trip with Arctic Shots.

          BEST EXPERIENCE! Bucket list item fully checked!
          Wow! What an experience from Bragi and Arctic Shots! We cannot rave more about Bragi. Our family was two adults, one 70 year old and one 4 year old. Bragi was wonderful at handling our group dynamic. He set expectations early in that we may only see the milky way due to our trip being wedged between two bad snow storms and that this may be the only night. We did see the milky way and it was beautiful, but there was a hint of Northern Lights starting to show, so Bragi decided we should stay and see what happens. We are so glad he did! We stayed for a few hours and watched the sky dance. The Northern Lights were absolutely stunning. Bragi was such a great host. He made sure we were warm and comfortable. He was patient with my tired, cold son and still got some amazing family photos. He even took photos of a piece of artwork my son made of the Northern Lights against the sky, which we will cherish forever. Bragi has a such a passion for the beauty of the sky, Iceland and for making sure you have a positive and fun experience. My mom can now check off seeing the Northern Lights from her bucket list and we all have an experience we will never forget. THANK YOU SO MUCH BRAGI! Book with him! He will take care of you and make sure that you see the best you can see while you are there.

        Bragi was a champ.

        He really is. We had sudden turn of bad weather that resulted to multiple road closures, thick show with strong gusts, no auroras, there were no ice on the diamond beach, neither the glacier was showing us its best; Welcome to the land of fire and ice lol..
        BUT here's the thing, the trip was extremely memorable because Bragi made it special.

        My wife and I decided to take multiple packages, including the photography package for our pictures being taken, there were no regrets the pictures turn out stunning. Bragi made up for the "lost" time and opportunity with additional photoshoot on his own personal time (even though bad weather wasn't his fault at all) and we "found" many secret picture spots that are gems for phtographers.

        Those were not the only things that were "lost & found".

        I am already contemplating to do a complete Ring Road with Bragi soon.

        If you want to be packed into a van with people you don't know to only have 20 minutes at the sites and be herded sheep then a general run of the mill tour is for you. Arctic Shots will give you the exact opposite of that. This tour was great and Bragi took fantastic photos and helped me with mine as well. I highly recommend using Arctic Shots and you will not regret it either.

        My wife and I did the Glacier Lagoon tour 2 days ago, returning yesterday (Wednesday). Knowing that yesterday would be raining the whole day, Bragi suggested an early start on Tuesday so as to get in as much as possible. And we did but we didn't rush.

        I am interested in getting good photographs. Bragi was really accomodating about that, stopping at really photogenic places, suggesting the good perspectives, compostion and camera settings.

        My wife who is happy to just use her iPhone was not left out by Bragi either. We both learn a lot.

        We had waterfalls, lakes, mountains, glaciers and black sand beaches.

        It was not all photography and nothing else either. We had great conversations.

        It rained almost all the way on our return leg yesterday. We still saw and photographed some more places. Where it was too wet to get out, Bragi would place the car for me to shoot out the window.

        I have already booked him again for another tour. And if the weather cooperates, also a Northern Lights tour at night. Keeping fingers crossed.

        Bragi is definitely high on my recommendation list. His tours are good too for those who just want to see the sights without doing serious photography.

        Thank you so much for your kind words Leslie. Still raining and still we got some good shots (I hope :D). Hopefully we can make it so you guys can tick all the boxes and catch the light too Yours Bragi

        *Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.
