Reviews for Midnight sun photography holiday in Iceland


review 25 Jul 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Visiting the glacial lagoons and ice beach in South Iceland. The Lake at Myvatn - utterly serene and beautiful

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for all weather conditions; be ready for some long journeys between some stopovers. Also toilets can be hard to find once off the beaten track.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We stayed mainly in small, local guest houses /accommodations with local produce. It was an education it itself to see how carefully Iceland was trying to protect and look after the environment, and not to bow to too much commercialisation around key sights . Even the Golden Circle, busy as it was, was trying to conserve impact on the environment (eg. small spread out car parks).

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This was a great holiday. I travelled with a small group (5 + 2 leaders). They looked after us incredibly well and the cost of the holiday included literally everything bar alcoholic drinks - one couple commented at the end that they hadn't had to spend any extra money at all. There were plenty of stops on long journeys, and whilst the weather sometimes interfered with photographic opportunities, overall we had much better weather than expected. I saw everything I wanted to, and more!
