Prices are per group. Usually a group is up to 4 passengers for a day tour and 3 passengers for a private workshop.
The Jökulsárlón tour is the least flexible tour, but we do stop at some places on the way. We will let you know if time becomes an issue. We can see the big waterfalls, volcanoes and the beach at Vík, as well as the glaciers at Skaftafell.
Note: Currently Kiddi is the only guide offering the one day trip to Jökulsarlon. We do offer a popular 2 day private workshop at Jökulsarlon Jökulsarlon
trip with plenty of time for quality stops.
Your friend might become a little bored at times if we are deep in photographic discussions or practice, but it shouldn't be an issue if they are interested in the nature. Our day tours are also sold as sightseeing tours.
You might need tripods (available to hire - no cost)a Neutral Density Filter (Like mine: B + W 77mm #106 1.8 (64X) Neutral Density Glass Filter with Single Coating)could be useful and a shutter release for your camera if you are going to shoot at night.
You will also need layers of warm clothing, see FAQ about clothing.
I will be very hapy to show you the Magic cloth technique, but you will need a strong Neutral Density filter (ND)...
This is the one I use; B + W 77mm #106 1.8 (64X) Neutral Density Glass Filter with Single Coating
be sure to get the right size for your lens!
I think the only airlines flying to Iceland in the winter are www.icelandair.is and www.icelandexpress.is you would have to connect in London or other European cities. There is not much difference between their prices.
We are able to take deposits via paypal or online credit card payment. We will accept online credit card payment or cash in any major currency for the full payment.
Discounts are available if you book consecutive days, this may extend to Aurora tours at the discretion of the guide.
Mid summer has a unique opportunity to shoot through the night with the midnight sun. It doesn't get dark and the sky is incredible for up to 6 hours. things that work well are Northern coastlines, Westfjords, Northern waterfalls. there are also opportunities to shoot wildlife such as arctic fox and bird life such as Puffins.
The summer also allows travel to the interior, to magical hot-spring locations such as Hveravellir, Landmannalaugar and Kerlingafjall
And so much more...

December is great for photography. The daylight hours are short but high quality light means that you should be shooting constantly for 5 hours per day (weather permitting). The nights are great for northern lights.
There could be a lot of Ice and snow. Usually the ring road is kept open and the south coast part is a bit milder than the northern part.
Road conditions can be checked on the Icelandic Roads website:
