After due consideration, I have decided to offer the same tours in 2019. The dates are as follows:
|Weekend One||Sunday 30th June 2019 -Sunday 7th July 2019||2|
|Weekend Two||Sunday 7th July 2019 -Sunday 14th July 2019||2|
|Midweek One||Tuesday 16th July 2019 – Tuesday 23th July 2019||2|
|Weekend Three||Sunday 28th July 2019 – Sunday 4th August 2019||2|
|Weekend Four||Sunday 4th August 2019 – Sunday 11th August 2019||2|
All tours are arranged to start at 11:00 (Iceland local time) and end at 08:30 (Iceland local time) as this roughly coincides with the Easyjet flights from Gatwick, Manchester and Luton. These flights have been chosen for their generous hand luggage allowances.
As before I shall not be taking any deposits until I have formal expressions of interest for each space. Once I have ten interested clients I will require a deposit to cover the cost of transporting the vehicle to Iceland. This is the biggest overhead cost and increases significantly the longer you leave it to book. It is a very busy ferry and spaces do fill up well in advance. Paying the deposit early secures both the space and the price.
I had several comments this year stating that the trip was too expensive. Although I appreciate that everyone’s opinion of ‘too expensive’ differs, I did feel that it was comparable and, in some cases, significantly cheaper to other photography tours. Plus it was a different concept and offered significantly more ‘camera time’ than many others. These tours are limited to two guests and are a full 7-days with shooting opportunities starting within minutes of landing and stretching for virtually 24 hours each day.
Saying that I have managed to reduce the costs this year and bring the overall price, per customer, down to £1750 (inc. VAT). With return flights, with Easyjet, coming in well under £200 this should help keep the overall cost more affordable. There are also discounts if two people book together.
