We had a group tour in the morning with Sigurjón Pétursson and we engaged him for a private tour for the balance of the day. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Iceland and the cultural changes that have taken place and is also a very good photographer. He took us to a number of sites that you would not see on a tour and suggested some great photo opportunities. We had our eleven year old grandson with us and he kept the interest of our grandson for the entire day. He is a very engaging person and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him.

An experience of a lifetime! Otherworldly landscapes - geologic wonders, birds, Icelandic horses, and peaceful beauty! AND with Sig, a top notch photographer and teacher of photography, geology, bird behavior, history and culture, as is his wife, Pora, it is unbeatable! We and our friends spent 2 wondrous weeks with them, absorbing the dynamic panorama of this spectacular island. As we experienced this treasure, we talked, laughed, and learned! What could be better!

This past February I (and a friend) had the delightful good fortune to go on a personalized photo tour with Sigurjon and Thora Hronn Petursson on the southern coast of Iceland. The photo opportunities are endless, and the guidance and company of our 2 hosts was invaluable. They are two absolutely delightful people with a seemingly limitless knowledge of the history, culture geology, and photographic opportunities of their native country.
It should be mentioned that this tour would be best appreciated by more experienced landscape photographers, rather than a novice with a point and shoot camera.
You will not be disappointed.

We are honoured by your review. What made this tour special was the team i.e. I and Thora Hronn but more important you and your friend. The chemistry was tops from the beginning to the end.
Hope to see you again.
Sigurjón.

In 2013 I went on a Photo Tour to Iceland. I did that with great trepidation. Just the English misnomer of Islandia as "Iceland", gave me the shivers. From the very start of the Tour I felt welcome and relieved. Islandia is beautiful and its August weather very pleasant. Sigurjon, the tour guide, photography master and chauffeur was a good ambassador of his country. He was knowledgeable of its history as well as its geography. He had planned the tour so that accommodations were comfortable and eating places affordable. The photo tour started on day 1. He took me and my husband to photograph famous falls, volcano peaks, bird refuges, glaciers, picturesque farms and landscape covered by spongy, green moss. Sigurjon was also a great landscape photographer and took the time to assess one's photographic ability level. HIs photo sessions consisted of photographing in the morning/afternoon, submitting to him our photo cards upon arriving at a hotel, and reviewing our work after dinner with ample feedback that was concrete and helpful. He taught me how to position myself to get better results. He insisted on our best work. Everyday was fresh and full of surprises. Color photography stands out, but B&W pictures can also be very impressive. I enjoyed Iceland and its people. The language was a source of amusement. I was glad that English was spoken and understood by all. Reykjavik is beautiful with a mixture of the old and the new. Their art institutions are modern and impressive. Street sculpture is everywhere. Their knitwear is fabulous and reasonable. I returned with a desire to return to Iceland again. Sigurjon and his wife Thora remain friends with us. I endorse his business as one of the best organized, best informed, most efficient and useful that one can find. I encourage all to visit his website and see his and his wife's high quality photography.

I and Thora Hronn thank you for your comments. We did really hit it off from Day 1 to the end. Never a dull moment. The review of the photos of the day each evening gave me a lot of satisfaction. The exchange of ideas and opinions as well as knowledge and creativity made the tour for me a very special experience.
Again thank you and hope to see you again.
Sigurjón.
