Capture unforgettable memories on this fantastic glacier hiking tour with professional photographs included. Travelers interested in exploring the beauty of the Vatnajokull glacier and having high-quality photos taken of the experience should book this tour today. 

This day tour is unique because you can hike on one of the largest glaciers in Europe and will receive a package of professional photos taken by your guide. These pictures are a great way to remember and share your unique Icelandic experience. 

Your tour begins with meeting your guide at the Freysnes gas station in the Skaftafell Nature Preserve. Skaftafell is part of the greater Vatnajokull National Park, which encompasses the massive Vatnajokull glacier. 

Your tour guide is both a professional photographer and a certified glacier guide, meaning they will be able to instruct you on all the essentials for safely hiking on the glacier. Be sure you dress in warm, waterproof layers and sturdy hiking boots.

The rest of your glacier gear, such as crampons, a harness, a helmet, and an ax, are provided by your guide. 

The Vatnajokull glacier is the largest in Iceland at a massive 3,050 square miles and is a truly awe-inspiring sight. As you make your way along the trail and up icy inclines, you will be amazed by the ice formations in varied shades of blue and the long-range views from the summit.

Throughout the hike, your guide will snap photographs of you and your group. Feel free to ask for some posed family pictures and fun candids that capture the experience. 

The total time for this experience is around four hours, so it is a good idea to pack some snacks, a water bottle, and even a thermos of coffee or tea to help warm you up during the trek. 

The pictures will be edited and emailed to you within seven days of the tour. You can expect a mix of portraits, group shots, candids, and landscape photos in the five-shot package. 

With a maximum of ten people, this small-group tour allows you to have one-on-one instruction with your guide and time to get to know your fellow hikers. It is a wonderful way to not only see a part of Iceland that isn’t always easily accessible but also to have that experience captured with professional photos. 

Travelers seeking a genuinely unforgettable experience hiking on Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in Iceland, should book this small-group tour with a professional photo package included. Check availability now by choosing a date.
