I've been living in Iceland for the past 5 months, and the photo shoot we did at Mink with our family has been one of the most awesome experiences we've had yet (and we've done just about everything there is to do in Reykjavik).

The photographer we had was incredibly talented, the experience of getting dressed up in traditional viking attire was super fun, the studio was cool, and most importantly - the photos we got out of it were incredible. Also the price for the shoot was very reasonable, even compared to photo studios that don't dress you up in epic Viking attire.

I cannot recommend Mink highly enough whether you're in Reykjavik for 3 days or 3 months. Release your inner viking!

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!
