We had a group tour in the morning with Sigurjón Pétursson and we engaged him for a private tour for the balance of the day. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Iceland and the cultural changes that have taken place and is also a very good photographer. He took us to a number of sites that you would not see on a tour and suggested some great photo opportunities. We had our eleven year old grandson with us and he kept the interest of our grandson for the entire day. He is a very engaging person and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him.
Just spent 10 days with Sigurjon Petursson and his wife Thora Hronn Njalsdottir on an all-inclusive, 2-guest private photo tour of Iceland. One of the highlights of my life! Not only are Sigurjon and Thora Hronn delightful and helpful, their knowledge of Iceland is unsurpassed.
They arranged for us to stay in just the right locations: comfortable and always good or excellent food. One night a bridge on the ring road was washed out, blocking our plans for the next morning. With only hours’ notice that we would have to backtrack, Sigurjion and Thora Hronn gracefully arranged a tour of some wonderful spots to photograph that we were not originally planning to see.
We asked to see off-the-beaten-path places, rather than the standard fare for photography tours. Since they have camped, backpacked, snowmobiled, and ridden ATV’s all over the highlands, we got to see and photograph things that most people never hear of.
On top of all that, they are two very fun people! I would highly recommend this tour for serious photographers.
After spending 2 extraordinary weeks with Photo Tours in Iceland. I can highly recommend them for deep and moving experience in this captivating country. Not only seeing amazing sights off the beaten path but also learning all about Icelandic history and culture, geology, local birds, every waterfall, mountain and glacier. Their willingness to help get the most compelling photos is truly appreciated. Looking forward to returning for another tour. A class outfi!
