Discover the magic of an Icelandic glacier with this ice-caving and glacier-hiking tour with a professional photographer. Adventurous travelers looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on an ice cap and incredible photos of their time in Iceland will love this 5-hour tour.

The adventure begins at the meeting point near the stunning Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Here, you'll meet the expert local guide leading the way.

You'll hop into a sturdy four-wheel-drive vehicle for a 30-minute drive over a bumpy off-road track that will take you to the glacier's edge.

As you travel, the experienced glacier guide will tell you about the area's history, and you can enjoy the views of the ancient glacier plain.

After parking the vehicle, the guide will also provide safety gear, including crampons, an ice axe, a harness, and a helmet equipped with a headlamp.

You should wear sturdy hiking shoes with good ankle support for the hike. If you don't have any, you can rent them from the tour guide before boarding the vehicle.

It's now time to embark on a 30-minute hike across the glacier, making your way to the entrance of an enchanting ice cave. The caves constantly change as the glacier ice melts, refreezes, and shifts, meaning each visit is unique and incredibly special.

Upon entering the cave, you can admire the stunning beauty. Magical blue and white ice formations will surround you, and you'll have plenty of time to admire the views.

While inside, the photographer guide will capture your memorable moments. They'll edit the photos to a professional standard, and you'll receive a link to download ten images within two weeks of your trip.

Traveling with a photographer means getting a fantastic souvenir to help commemorate your time in Iceland.

After immersing yourself in the enchanting ice cave, it's time for the next thrilling part of the adventure, a glacier hike on the Breidamerkurjokull glacier.

The knowledgeable guide will lead the group across the icy terrain, where you'll see dramatic crevasses and other awe-inspiring landscapes that Iceland is famous for.

After a fantastic hike, you'll return to the four-wheel drive vehicle, and your guide will drive you back to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, where you can reflect on your unforgettable adventure. You'll have great memories that will last forever.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to go glacier hiking and explore a sapphire-blue ice cave with a professional photographer. Check availability now by choosing a date.
