Explore the magnificent ice caves and glaciers of Iceland, and enshrine your memories with a professionally taken photo package, with this fantastic winter tour. Those who want to be able to enjoy their adventure without fiddling around with a camera and still get a souvenir that lasts a lifetime will love this opportunity.

This excursion begins when you are picked up from the Skaftafell Nature Reserve in south-east Iceland, a spectacular wilderness of ice caps, lava fields and woodland. From here, your friendly, professional photo guide will take you on the trip of a lifetime, that comes with two separate activities.

You’ll first reach a beautiful corner of Vatnajokull glacier, the largest ice cap in Europe, where you will be dressed in all necessary safety equipment for your hike. Your guide will then lead you upon the gleaming white surfaces and introduce you to a mesmerising landscape few are lucky enough to ever be privy to.

As you marvel over the crevasses and ridges, the strange formations and the magical range of colours, your guide will take pictures of you on their high-quality camera. As a professional photographer, you can be ensured that all of these images will capture the incredible beauty of your surroundings and the wonder of your experience.

After your glacier hike, you will move on to the crystal blue ice caves; these formations are only open in midwinter, and are rare around the world, making this one of Iceland’s most special opportunities. Once again, you will be led into an ethereal new world and photographed as you explore. The vivid azure colours and the way light penetrates the caves will make these images even more special.

Once you have made the most of these two incredible adventures, you will be escorted back to Skaftafell and dropped off. The next day, however, you will be sent ten professionally edited photographs, including personal portraits, landscapes with you in them, and group pictures.

Hike a glacier, delve into the mysterious crystal ice caves, and have your experience captured for the perfect souvenir with this fantastic winter tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
