Why choose Arctic Exposure?

Our goal is to introduce you to the many beautiful locations we know here in Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. While showing you around, we will do your best to teach you how to take better photographs, to skillfully use your camera and equipment, and give you some post-processing tips.

On top of that, we want you to learn something new about the culture and history of the country you are visiting. To have a lot of fun, appreciate great food and in the end, have a memory that you will want to share with others.

The Workshops we host are mainly based in Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. We offer all-inclusive tours where you stay at 99% of the time in hotels and guesthouses with private bathrooms. We try to shake things up and check out some local delicatessen while we roam around and we always try to show you something new and off the beaten track. All our guides are local pro photographers and quirky in a good way.

Photo Tours & Photo Workshops by Arctic Exposure come highly recommended by our customers. We put our passion and years of experience hunting for those extreme places and conditions for photography on the line every time. We aim to find you the perfect moment to capture.
