I came to Iceland to see the Northern Lights. It was a healing journey for me. My only child, my son, died last year and I came here to be closer to my son through this experience. Odinn made it perfect. We did find the Northern Lights and it was breathtaking. He helped me with settings on my camera and he took photos as well. I love the one he took of me under the Northern Lights. The big tours on buses are fine if you want to be a casual observer of the lights. If however you want to experience them Arctic Shots is the experience you want. They truly cared about my experience and making it happen. Thank you so much Odinn, you have given me some peace and the healing has begun.

We were deciding on a few tour providers to chase the aurora. we decided to go with PRIVATE Northern light photo infused tour as it provides digital shots of the elusive aurora. We're a family of 4, 2 of our kids are 6 and 9 yrs old. Bragi, our guide is wonderful, friendly and informative. The first night he brought us, we couldnt find the lights. We went on for 3 hours before calling it a day. Bragi kept us posted the following days when we were in Reykjavik if it was a god day to chase. Eventhough the first day was futile, he though my husband how to operate the camera to best capture the lights. He taught him how to look for signs of the aurora. These are the best lessons ever! While we move around Iceland, he was in touch with us and sharing with us possible sightings at the area we are in. In the last 3 days, we were near Reykjavik. He came to fetch us at our cabin and we got to see the lights. He again guided husband with his camera, we got our family shot and he got blankets and hot choc for the kids when the night was getting too cold. The kids were comfortable with his friendliness too! When we got back to our cabin, with the valuable lessons from Bragi, husband managed to sight the aurora again. So clear this time and we managed to get it on camera! Wouldnt be possible without Bragi's lessons. So to conclude, i wld pay slightly more for this tour, you get your money's worth it in Bragi's experience and guidance he un-selfishly shares.

My daughter and I were in Iceland Nov 2021. We booked this tour before we left, Bragi was very prompt with all communications. We had a few nights in Reykjavik, but wasn't looking promising because of all the could coverage. Bragi contacted us one evening and said there might be some cloud openings if we wanted to try. He picked us up promptly from our hotel and off we went chasing the Northern Lights. He took us to a really fun spot, the clouds opened for a little while. We were able to see the Northern Lights and stars, it was so beautiful. Neither my daughter or I are photographers, so we really appreciated Bragi's vast knowledge and the photos he provided to us after. We had a wonderful time and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. Bragi is very passionate about photography and takes amazing photos, I would highly recommend this trip. Everything about Bragi and his company is very professional.

My 3 friends and I booked a private northern lights photo night with Bragi. Booking with him was easy and his communication was timely. The night wasn’t looking promising and he was very clear about that, but we decided to give it a chance anyways. We are so glad we did! After searching different areas for a bit he ended up taking us to the perfect spot. None of use were professional photographers and we all needed to learn how to photograph the northern lights. Bragi gave us a fantastic photo lesson and taught us what we needed to know in order to take photos for the remainder of our trip. You can tell he is incredibly passionate about photography and getting you the best photos. We were very grateful that we had the opportunity to learn from him. I would highly recommend anyone (professional, amateur or beginner) wanting to get professional help with photographing the northern lights or wanting someone to take you to the best places for photos to book with Bragi.

Oddin was a fantastic guide and photographer and comunication with Bragi was excellent! He has lots of patiente with us to see aurora, staying much longer than expected with us to get the best sight and also looking constantly for the best spot. The experience and the photos taken were amazing!! No regrets on booking this tour, last night was one for the books!!
