I walked by this studio a few times before venturing inside. Fortunately they were open for business and had an open time slot for a photo shoot.

The costumes and artifacts are of good quality and come in a variety of sizes. You can choose what type of Viking you want to be; within a range of options. There are real axes, swords and bows as well as period jewelry for the clothing.

The photo shoot goes by quickly, but there were a few great shots. I bought 10 or so photos and downloaded them when I was home.

I’ve recommended this studio to everyone that has asked about my trip. If you want some unique photos, this is for you.

Amazing experience with the 4 of us at Mink Studio. The details of the armor and weapons were amazing and the photos were astonishing. The pictures we have from this studio will be with us forever and will allow us to recall our time in Iceland and as a 'Viking' :) Highly recommend this if your in Reykjavik as it is located centrally downtown not far from the Cathedral.

I stumbled upon these posters in downtown Reykjavík and entered their studio. There, I met Carla and Gustavo who are some of the nicest person I met during my trip. They've been very kind giving me a lot of information about their services and even a few tips for my trip.

I booked a photo shoot with them and the pictures were just amazing! Having to select only 6 of these was really hard, I recommend going for more. This was a really good experience from the start and I recommend it to everyone!

I visited Iceland last week and I just had to get my Viking portrait taken.
The Mink team was super quick to respond to me and schedule a time for my shoot.

Once I got there I had such a great time! The staff was super friendly, the outfits and accessories were amazing and my pictures turned out so great.

I could not be more please. Worth every penny.

My partner and I are doing Ring Road. We flew into KEF and stopped here after picking up our camper van for the next 8 days. This was our first stop and it felt like the perfect omen for a great trip. We happened to see the sign from the road and love these type of dress up picture studios, but never experienced one like this. This place is so Viking authentic, there's pics of actors from the show Viking and on set pics of Game of Thrones where the owner (and store photographer), Guðmann worked. The costumes are beautiful and varied. They also sell cool jewelery, candles and shoes. It's fun, educational, and easy. It's a full-on but quick photoshoot. We posted for several solo pics and together. Then Guðmann emailed us all the pics to go thru at our own leisure. They were all so gorgeous (and I wasn't feeling my best today). Do it.
