Arctic Exposure's Aurora & Ice Cave Photo Workshop was a wonderful week spent working along the southern coast of Iceland at many of the iconic locations. Our guide Aron did an absolutely superb job in managing challenges such as the rapidly changing weather and de-conflicting with crowds at the more popular locations. On two separate nights he put us at perfect spots for shooting the Northern Lights, enabling us to get some once in a lifetime shots of this amazing phenomenon. The trip was very well organized and the hotel locations and accommodations were superb. Overall a great value for the money and I would most highly recommend this trip for anyone looking to photograph the beauty of Iceland in the winter.

Our guide, Haldor, constantly went above and beyond to attend to our needs and desires. Very flexible to experience the best locations to photograph for the changing weather conditions. This was my second trip with Arctic Exposure and once again a top-notch experience from planning ahead of the trip to every aspect of the trip and excellent follow up after the trip. On trips with other companies, the guide promised a detailed itinerary of where we shot each day, and never provided it. Haldor did an amazing job of documenting our locations and sharing them. I would definitely recommend Arctic Exposure for a photography trip in Iceland and other locations they visit. They are photographers, so they understand what we are looking for and cater to the photographers' need. Small group makes their trips really wonderful!

Everything we saw in Iceland was incredible, but the flexibility and responsiveness of our guide to meet wishes of the tour group was outstanding. We could spot something along the roadside and our guide would take us there for photos. He also made occasional arrangements for travelers to take a half day off, or to retrieve a forgotten object if possible. Utmost service and consideration!

We were in a group of 8, and this size was ideal. We easily got to know each other, it was easy toindividually roam around at photo sites while still keeping track of everyone.

Hotels were charming, clean, and comfortable, Food was outstanding, even in the small service station grills and snack bars along the roadside. There were plenty of rest room stops.

Our off-road vehicle was absolutely safe and incredible. We had USB charging ports, a strong Internet hot spot, comfortable seats, adequate storage areas, and ability to travel over the landscape to spots not easily accessible.

All this while surrounded by the Icelandic landscape in all its majesty and northern winter remoteness. An adventure for sure!

I booked with Arctic Exposure after having a very good experience with Skarpi in the Faroe Islands and highly recommend his trips. Great advice about the technical challenges of photographing white birds on snow, great support and comfortable accommodations and vehicle. Good group size, lots of laughs and some excellent results with my photography. Would definitely recommend.

We booked a photo tour through Arctic Exposure. They listed the maximum number of participants but did not list a minimum. A month before we were supposed to leave and shortly after our final payment went through, they sent us an email that the tour was cancelled because people dropped out at the last minute. Since then, they have not responded to our emails and their phone just rings and no longer has an answering device. They are not refunding our money.

Arctic Exposure’s Photo Workshop of Northern Lights, Ice Caves, and diamonds on the black beach was a fabulous week of capturing beautiful photos. Our guide Aron was so knowledgeable, showing our small group all of his special spots and knowing when to be there depending on the weather plus avoiding the many tourists. I am so glad I chose Arctic Exposure’s trip around the southern part of Iceland. It was Awesome....!

Arctic Exposure's winter photo tour in Iceland is a great experience for both beginner and advanced photographers. Well organized with full days at different locations, conditions and photo ops. The big "bus" took us to locations most vehicles could not reach in winter conditions. The guide, Dui, was himself an accomplished videographer/photographer and provided advice on settings and locations for best shots. Accommodations were all adequate to very good as were food options. Windy conditions made photographing difficult at times, but our group encouraged each other on and Dui provided support and assistance as required. All in all, it was a great trip with VERY little downtime. Excellent value for money. We had been to Iceland in summer and this trip was a nice compliment to our previous trip,.

We booked two private day trips with Arctic Exposure and had a fantastic experience. Our guide, Pall Jokull, is a landscape photographer and native of the area and he drove us to the best locations at the best time of day for magnificent photographs. If your group includes folks who can spent hours with a tripod, this is the company you want to choose. Pall was always on time but never in a rush, really understood what we wanted to do, and took some great pictures of us while we were taking pictures of Iceland! I can't say enough good things about our experience. It was really perfect.

One of the best trip for serious photographers.

Aron was a fantastic guide who knew the weather patters, and took us to the best locations on time.

He knew the perfect timing for the perfect shots and would advice on ideal settings.

The transport truck was incredible and very comfortable. We were able to go place few could go.

I joined the Highlands of Iceland Drone Photo Workshop in late Sep 2023. Our guide Skarpi, who is also the owner of Arctic Exposure, is an excellent guide with in-depth knowledge in photography and specifically drone photography. I really appreciate him sharing his expertise in drone photography and landscape photography in general. He made me feel more confident in flying my drone in the Icelandic weather, so I can take time to compose the image and get the results I really wanted. Would recommend 100% if you want to a perfect tour in Iceland.
