Extreme Lights

      This tour is not for the casual wanderer. In our Extreme Lights tours, we go beyond our usual driving range to the iconic photography sites in Iceland. Who doesn´t want a northern lights shot by the famous plain wreck on the black sand beaches to the east, Mt. Kirkjufell to the west or Hvitserkur to the North? Join Arctic Shots for one of the most unique and memorable Aurora/Nightscape photography you will ever experience. We will take you to personally-scouted locations far from the city for the best chance to see the Northern Lights and the nightscape of Iceland. Our northern lights tours depend on the weather forecasts from 3 different sources in the days before your tour to maximize your chance of catching this phenomenon. With us, you will also learn how and where to enjoy and photograph the fabulous nightscapes of Iceland and the colorful dance of the Aurora Borealis, one of the foremost wonders of the natural world. Our guides are professional photographers and certified guides by the Icelandic Tourist Board. In our extreme tours, we head out early in the evening on the hunt of a lifetime, visiting the best locations within a 200+km/125+mi radius of Reykjavik. The final choice of location depends on weather, wind, cloud cover etc. The success of a night’s Aurora hunting depends on many factors; you will learn about the required equipment and camera settings, and how to prepare for the right moment and judge the strength of the Aurora to make sure you bring home the best possible shot. If conditions permit, we may also take a swing at the Milky Way, specific stars, do a bit of light painting and even play with steel wool. With us you will get an unlimited access to our tips, tricks and our personal knowledge/experience of nighttime photography. Experience the emotions that only the Northern Lights and the Icelandic skies can generate. Come and join us, bring your camera and get the shots of a lifetime!

The fine print:

  • Aurora strength depend on solar activity in the days prior to the tour and we do our tours based on those readings.
  • The Icelandic weather is famous for being constantly changing with cloud cover effecting our view of the sky, stars and of course the Northern Lights.
  • With that in mind, we do read into 3 different weather reports in the days before tours and decide on locations based on these predictions.
  • That is why we cannot guarantee that we will catch lights, but with us you will maximize your chances and be in the right spot to photograph them when they show up.
