What you'll do

(SCHEDULE NOTICE - please contact me if you're interested in dates not shown in my calendar)

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!

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.
Other things to note
Dress warm, be prepared for rain any time. Gloves and hat are advised, as well as waterproof jacket or raincoat.

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.

As the only person who booked the experience for the day selected, I was driven around by the excellent host Julia on an individual tour of the great country. I am so thankful for the amazing places and great company. Julia is a lovely and thoughtful host and I couldn't have asked for anything better! I'm not the best photographer so having Julia take photos of me in these places was fantastic and I truly found the whole experience so exciting! The best part where we laughed the most was in the cauldron of Hunnu. Julia also put together a playing for the drive which was perfect. Please do this trip as she is excellent, friendly and wants to share this beautiful country with everyone.

Julia was awesome! She helped with a proposal for my now-fiancé and me. She was fun and knew a lot about the places we visited!

The tour with Julia was excellent! She gave a thorough explanation on the sites that we visited, and getting to have some professional photos at the end was such a nice personal touch and keepsake for a memorable experience.
