#7-day Adventure add-on

September is one of the best times of year to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, and for those of you interested in a no-frills, drive and sleep in a van, shoot all night in middle of nowhere extension to your Weekend Workshop, we’re making an additional trip immediately after, setting off Monday morning and spending 6 long nights chasing the Aurora Borealis (which there’s no guarantee we’ll see) and stopping off at many of Iceland’s most picturesque locations, with a relaxing day at the famous Blue Lagoon on Sunday to top it all off.

It’s rough, it’s tiring, and it’s not for everyone — but if it’s for you, we’re inviting a few people to join us from September 22–28 to experience our approach to capturing the night skies.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is payment handled?

    We use a third-party service called Ti.to. This not only allows us secure online transactions, but we can accept numerous forms of payment from credit card to PayPal — whatever suits you best!

  • What about flights?

    Flights to Iceland are not included, so shop around for the best deal (as always, the earlier you book, the better). For the weekend workshop, plan to arrive on the Friday morning/early afternoon, leaving Monday morning. For the week adventure, plan to arrive on the Sunday afternoon (you’ll need some accommodation - we can help with this) and leave on the following Sunday afternoon / evening or Monday morning (you’d need some accommodation for Sunday night). Let us know if you have any questions whatsoever!

  • What type of accommodation should I expect?

    For the Weekend Workshop, you will be staying in hotels around the shooting locations. During the 7-day Adventure week, you will be sleeping in a van, as that allows us to stay mobile and chase the weather — giving you the best opportunity for great shots!

  • What if the weather is bad?

    Often stormy weather actually makes more interesting skies for our photographs! During the Weekend Workshop, we will have a Plan B in the case of extremely severe (aka unsafe) weather, involving food and post-processing. For the 7-day Adventure, we can always drive and find better weather (photographically speaking).

  • What skill levels do you teach?

    We teach everyone from beginners to advanced photographers. Even if you don’t have a DSLR, we can help you get the best out of whatever camera you bring along (get in touch if you have any gear-specific questions prior to booking).

  • Will I get to see the Northern Lights?

    Possibly! There is no guarantee that we’ll see them, as there are many weather-related variables involved, such as solar activity and cloud cover. That said, we will try our best to find them — and if you’re on our 7-day Adventure, the chances will be much higher!

  • What if I need more information?

    Feel free to contact us with any queries that you may have. Once you are registered, we will send out an information pack prior to the workshop with more details. You can also tweet Conor (@thefella), Greg (@greg_a) or Dan (@danrubin).

  • What about cancellations?

    In general, we do not offer refunds, however: Depending on when you cancel and your reasons, we will do our best to refund all or some of your registration fee. You are also more than welcome to transfer your place to someone else if you can’t make it. Please check our complete Terms & Conditions for more details.
