Explore one of Iceland’s most scenic outlet glaciers and get some professional photos to remember your trip on this incredible ice cave tour. Those eager to discover the magical world of an ice cave should book this small-group tour now.

The tour starts at the meeting point at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. You’ll meet the rest of the guests on the tour and your professional photographer and glacier guide. As this is a small-group tour, you’ll have plenty of time to get some excellent photographs to keep as a souvenir of your trip to Iceland.

Your guide will give you a safety briefing and all the equipment you need for the ice cave hike, including a helmet, harness, crampons, and an ice axe. Once you’re ready, it’s time to head to the ice cave on the Vatnajokull glacier.

Vatnajokull is Iceland’s largest ice cap and one of the largest in Europe. The glacier is home to various ice caves, which change yearly as the ice melts and refreezes. This means that each tour of the ice caves is different — the cave one group visits won’t be there again the following year.

The caves are vibrant blue and boast spectacular, ever-changing ice formations. Your tour provider will choose one of the best caves in the area to ensure you get a fantastic experience.

You’ll learn more about the Vatnajokull glacier as you go to the chosen cave. The glacier covers eight percent of Iceland’s landmass and has a surface area of over 3,100 square miles (about 8,100 square kilometers). It has over 30 outlet glaciers (smaller channels of ice flowing from the ice cap).

When you arrive at the ice cave, you’ll have time to explore its beautiful interiors. Your guide will use their equipment to photograph you and your party. Having a professional photographer on hand means you’ll be free to enjoy the cave fully without worrying about getting good images on your camera.

After an exciting glacier hike and visit to the ice cave, you’ll return to the meeting point to carry on your journey. The photographer will professionally edit your photos to enhance their color and lighting and email them to you within two weeks of the tour. Each person will receive two pictures — one portrait and one landscape.

These beautiful photographs are the perfect souvenir from your vacation in Iceland. You can keep them forever and show them to your family and friends.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore one of Iceland’s most stunning ice caves and capture the day with a professional photographer. Check availability now by choosing a date.
