This Dream Job In Iceland Will Pay You To Drive Around & Take Photos Of The Northern Lights

Imagine getting paid to wander Iceland at your own pace and take photos of your surroundings.

Fara Car Rental is offering you the chance to do just that in one of its SUVs — as long as you take killer photos of the Aurora Borealis.

The rental company is looking for an amateur photographer to snap pics that it can use across its social media and website, and they're willing to pay one lucky person 35,000 ISK (around CA$358 or US$280) for the trouble.

Oh, and the 4x4 vehicle rental will be free. Obviously.

The opportunity, which is open to residents of all countries, will take place in April 2022, and while "on the job" the photographer has the freedom to explore whatever they want.

That means you can check out geysers, hot springs, glaciers and volcanoes while driving around Iceland's famous Golden Circle road.

There's just one thing on your must-photograph list: the northern lights. But you'd probably want to see them anyway, right?

Fara says it's looking for someone who loves to travel, and pro photography experience is not necessary. However, they do want someone who knows the basics of taking good photos and creating fun content.

You also must be 25 years old or older and have a full, clean international driver's licence.

Fara doesn't mind if you bring a plus-one, but there is a catch: flights, accommodations and food are not included, so you'll have to foot those bills yourself.

So the trip to Iceland is on you, but it's hard to argue with a free rental car and payment for going!

Applications are open from now until Monday, February 28, and people can apply on the Fara Car Rental website.
