Small group quality –  modified trucks – no drivers meter in our trucks.

We regard transport during photo tours –  a big part of the experience. We need to be able to cross rivers and travel the Icelandic dirt tracks and we need to get to places few can. There are plenty of fantastic locations to photograph with few or no tourists at all, you just have to get there and therefore we need real 4x4 and not a bus. Our tours are aimed at small groups for few reasons. For the quality of the tour a small group is obvious. Not being a bus tour, we can stop and park most places when great light is presented. Bigger buses are limited to big parking lots with all the other tourists. But the main thing is; by law bigger/medium size buses all need a so called drivers meter clock. Which limits the driver / guide to go out for sunrise and sunset or northern lights in the same day. Therefor we keep our buses under that size/seat limit ( max 8 pers.) 

Also in order to be able to travel safely and comfortably throughout the Icelandic highlands, cross open rivers, over wet sand and snow we have modified our trucks.
For 4-8 passengers, we have lifted our 38-inch tire Ford Econoline that comes all with comfortable seats.
For 1-3 passengers, we have spacious, lifted 35-inch tire luxurious Chevrolet Suburban.
