Northern light’s hunting with a professional photographer
On a cold night with clear sky and weather permitting, we head out to some beautiful locations in South- or West Iceland, to catch a glimpse of the green-stuff, the Northern Lights. Unfortunately there is no guarantee of seeing the Northern Lights, even though we try our best.
Normally a tour is 4 hours from the time I pick you up, until you come back again. The greatest possibilities to see the Northern Lights are between 22:00 and 03:00 hours at night, and I plan in advance to be where the best conditions are, cloud coverage and some interesting landscape and foreground, such as Thingvellir national park. I might have to change the plans if the weather conditions are not favourable, trying the day after instead.
You should bring warm clothes, flashlight, your camera with fully charged battery's and a tripod. If the weather forecast turns out to be bad for Northern lights you will be contacted before 18:00 the same day, and we can reschedule if you or I have other nights available. I can not offer the same level of service as the big tour companies, but on the other hand it will be more relaxed and flexible. We deal with the weather when the time comes :) it is constantly changing over here. Pick up and drop off at your hotel in Selfoss or Reykjavik
