The Essential Souvenir

Reykjavik's immensely popular Mink Viking Portraits offers travelers a chance to literally see themselves as Vikings. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful, assisting clients in choosing and donning period Viking costumes from an in-house collection of rough woolen robes, furs, period fasteners, wrist guards, mail, and battle helmets. The weapons array includes spears, swords, daggers, mallets, and axes. Those with a philosophical bent can complete their Medieval images with animal skulls.

The studio's weathered plank walls provide a stunningly effective background to the photos. Results are professional and the handsome portraits have an air of surprising authenticity. Don't miss this chance to memorialize your holiday as a Viking.
