This was the highlight of our iceland trip. We saw the crystal cave, the blue lagoon and all the wonders iceland had to offer but the most marvelous decision we made was to have these beautiful and amazing photos to take home with us. Our children especially enjoyed this activity , I mean really who doesn't like dressing up as Vikings and making angry faces, and they learned quite a bit while we were there even though they had never intended to. Just overall an excellent experience and we highly recommend it.

This is an absolute MUST do in Reykjavik- and the most memorable experience. Guðmann and Gustavo are not only amazing photographers- but they are so knowledgeable about Iceland and teaching us about viking culture. They were professional and fun at the same time.

We have never had professional photos taken of us before but they made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera we were having so much fun throughout the entire shoot! It took about 1 hour for all 3 of us.

The communication both before and during the booking was fast and efficient. We received all of the photos via email right away- and were told to take our time choosing our favorite 6 photos per person (so 18 photos all together) and they promptly emailed us those photos in high resolution. We received a ton of individual photos as well as group photos to pick from!

The location is right in the heart of downtown so very easy to walk to and grab some lunch or drinks after.

Thank you Mink for such a rewarding experience.

This was a great activity to add on to a fabulous trip to Iceland - staff (and the resident dog!) were great, managing to get serious looking photos even out of skeptical teenagers! And the photos turned out great. Very glad to have done it, highly recommend!

Six of us went for the viking photos and it was a really enjoyable experience! the guys got us dressed up looking really awesome and made the whole thing easy and fun. Gus was a great photographer, great at posing us and helping us with our serious and mean expressions (lol), and took over 300 photos of our group of 6 - group photos, couples, and individual ones. we all had a really great time and the photos are pretty amazing! definitely a good thing to do in Reykjavik that will give you some awesome memories!

I cant relay how fun this experience was from booking to getting our final photos...first class all the way. Even during the booking process communication was easy, clear and fast...upon arriving in Iceland i was supplied directions and parking info. Once we arrived Gus took time to explain the process and helped us get into costume (the props are awesome quality ). The shoot was not rushed at all, Gus was great at directing us and was very open to pose ideas we had. During the shoot Gus gave us great advice on things to see and do in Reykjavik which we appreciated. Once complete we viewed the raw photos and Gus made sure we were happy with them. Later when we got home we picked out photos and the finals were sent very quickly ( both lower res. for internet use and high res. for printing). We say many great things during our tine in Iceland but our viking photo shoot was by far our favorite. Thank you Mink Viking Photo Studio for great memories we can keep forever :)
