What you'll do

Join a professional photographer on a private adventure tour in the beautiful Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark. Break away from the crowds and follow me on a quest for the most beautiful landscapes around Reykjavik.
Just a short drive from the capital is an area full of true wonders, simply perfect for a day excursion in a cozy SUV to shield you from the elements.

We'll explore this fascinating moon-like landscape with geothermal springs and bubbling pools of volcanic mud.
You will have a chance to see outlandishly colorful rocks and natural hot pools hanging off of pitch black basalt cliffs. I'll show you giant steaming hot springs, tell you legends of Icelandic witches, and walk you through the crack between two tectonic plates - Eurasian and North American.

Afterwards, we'll visit a hidden gem, a secret location that few know of, completely off the beaten path and I'll take some amazing shots of you in this landscape that will take your Instagram to a new level!

There will be plenty of opportunities to take unforgettable pictures, and to learn a bit about photographing this amazing landscape.

As a parting gift, I will take a few professional pictures of you in these beautiful surroundings so you can take these memories home with you.

  • Identity verified
I am a professional photographer, and I moved to Iceland in 2016 to pursue my passion. The first time I took a camera in my hands was over 15 years ago when I got one from my grandfather. I've finished Photography and Design studies in Poland, and have been working as a freelancer doing portrait, landscape, and fine art photography. I've had multiple exhibitions of my pictures, and have worked with big companies and Instagram influencers.

Really cool experience, Julia was great , the weather turned for the worst but she took the time to figure out things and time manage so we could still get the best experience . Julia is really friendly , has a good insight of the locations being a photographer and yes , she is a great photographer too. Highly recommend this over group tours on buses .

What an exciting day this was! Julia was absolutely amazing, very knowledgable and knows the best spots in this gorgeous place. The weather wasn't on our side and some of the routes were sadly blocked due to heavy snowfall but that didn't stop Julia from finding alternative routes and locations for us to discover. She's also an excellent photographer so can't wait to see the photos she took of us. With Julia there were 4 of us in total, the small group were super cool so the tour really felt like a road trip with a bunch of friends. I really couldn't recommend Julia highly enough, thanks for a remarkable day!

This experience was one of the highlights of my trip! Julia is fantastic -- so knowledgeable about the area, Icelandic culture, and photography. Even though the weather was unruly, we were still able to see most of the sites -- Julia even tried alternate routes and showed us other locations to make up for anything that we were not able to get to because of road closures. We travelled with two other solo tourists, but it felt like we were all friends out on an adventure together! The photos Julia took of us are beautiful. I don't normally like photos of myself, but I love all the ones she took! Can't thank her enough for such a wonderful day!

I had a great day with Julia. She made the trip personal to me while showing me around Iceland, including stopping at a couple places off the normal tourist path. We found the good photo spots and she got a few shots of me. Definitely would recommend!

What an amazing tour and an amazing host! Julia was super friendly and informative and gave us an experience of a lifetime. We are so glad we chose a private tour with Julia - we did a bigger group tour previously but this one with Julia was way more relaxed and we didn’t feel rushed at each location. Highly recommend!
