Road map

Tour leader: Rafn Sig,- Photographer (Rabbi)

Rafn Sig,- is one of the Iceland’s leading landscape and nature photographers. He has focused on documenting the raw nature since he was a young boy and has been hiking in the Icelandic highlands and low lands all his life so he knows the nature and the hidden spots like a true native.

Rafn Sig,- is a self-educated photographer and has worked as a freelance photographer for more than thirty years. He has developed his own unique style through photographing the wide variety of the colorful Icelandic nature. He’s got his photos published all over the world, in magazines, books, postcards as on the internet.


_MG_3749_1We aim at the South Iceland with focus on Vík area with seascapes and black beaches, frozen waterfalls, aurora borealis and some hidden gems of Iceland.
We will have great adventures in the Vatnajökull national park area by visiting glaciers, glacier lagoons and hopefully see more aurora
(the aurora vision depends of the weather conditions and other things).

The itinerary will be flexible and adjusted to weather and aurora activity to make the most out of the tour.

The itinerary is planed like this but will be kept

Photography Equipment

  • A digital camera, preferably a DSLR camera. A compact camera can be used, as long as you understand its limitations.
  • A sturdy tripod. That is a definite must in Iceland’s windy conditions. A flimsy tripod will simply prevent you from being able to shoot most of the time.
  • Recommended: an ultra-wide angle lens. For example, 17-40 on a FF sensor camera, or a 10-24 on a crop sensor camera.
  • Recommended: a wide aperture ultra-wide angle such with f/2.8 for night photography.
  • Recommended: a telephoto zoom lens, such as a 70-200 or 70-300. Doesn’t have to have a wide aperture or a stabilizer – an f/4 is more than enough.
  • Recommended: A filter set for landscape photography. I personally use Lee filters. A good filter set is worth its weight in gold for a landscape enthousiast. If you need to consult about buying a filter set, I’ll be happy to help.
  • Recommended: A camera remote.



  • Full thermal gear is absolutely essential. I typically wear a thick thermal base layer, a heavy fleece coat and a down coat.
  • Good quality warm gloves. It’s important to use gloves which enable you to operate the camera while wearing them.
  • Thermal long-johns
  • Water resistant trousers (preferably thermal)
  • Thermal socks. I recommend bringing at least 2-3 pairs.
  • A neck-warmer or a scarf
  • An alpine mask to cover the face
  • A good warm hat which covers your ears. Otherwise, they’ll simply fall off!
  • Water-proof, thermal, knee-high rubber boots.
  • Ice spikes are MANDATORY to protect yourself from slipping on icy surfaces.
If you want to stop on the way to take pictures.  Then we stop with a smile.
