Join this unique, private ice cave climbing tour from Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and get fantastic action shots while climbing the Vatnajokull glacier. This tour is perfect for expert and first-time ice climbers who want to explore Iceland from a unique perspective and visit a blue ice cave. 

Your guide will meet you at the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. The lagoon is famous for its breathtaking surroundings, such as its vast lake, free-flowing icebergs, and abundant birdlife.

Moreover, because of the breathtaking views at Jokulsarlon, it is a popular filming spot for many movies and TV shows, including Game of Thrones, James Bond: A View to Kill, and Batman Begins. 

Your private guide will drive you to your nearby destination, one of the blue ice caves of the Vatnajokull glacier. The glacier is found north of the lagoon and is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.

These caves are often considered the top feature of the Vatnajokull National Park, which is saying something considering the area stretches for 14,141 square kilometers (5,460 square miles). Only accessible in winter, you'll be amazed by the vivid colors and unusual formations.

The next part of this tour is ice cave climbing. Your guide will assist and teach you all you need to know to climb the cave's glacier ice. The lessons allow first-time ice climbers to enjoy the experience as much as experts!

In addition to ice climbing lessons, you will also learn facts about the caves and the history of Iceland's glaciers. As this is a private tour, you'll have your guide's undivided attention and can ask any questions you like.

As you begin your ascent, your photo guide will start photographing you to create a portfolio of amazing shots. Each person can get 20 pictures, and this includes different types of photos, from action shots, portraits, landscapes, ice cave shots, and group shots. 

Moreover, having a guide that's also a photographer makes the tour perfect for solo travelers and groups who want to focus more on the adventure rather than taking pictures all the time.

Once your trip is complete, you'll return to Jokulsarlon. 

Do not miss this opportunity to explore Vatnajokull's ice caves, go ice caving, and have a collection of incredible images afterward taken by a professional. Check availability by choosing a date now!
