This is the ultimate glacier and ice cave photography tour in Iceland. An adventure that is catered to those wanting to get the best shots for their portfolios on and inside of the glacier. During this tour we will visit one or more ice caves and spend as much time as possible working inside of the caves as our professional photography guide teaches you the tricks to getting perfect photos. Techniques taught include focus stacking, bracketing, panoramas, model positioning, and perfect settings for the unique conditions of the cave. After shooting the caves, we head up the glacier to shoot some of the most photogenic spots including crevasses, icefalls and viewpoints of Iceland below.

Absolutely unforgettable event! We were super lucky that we were a small group and had two such wonderful guides. Pascal and Jan guided us through the day and the ice climbing provided the necessary fun and adrenaline rush. Would we really book again and again !! Big thanks in this sense again to Pascal and Jan.

Our guides, Pascal and Vincenzo were above and beyond outstanding! They were professional and encouraging and patient and kind and they helped make the glacier hike and ice climb one of the best experiences we’ve ever had! We felt safe and I thought we were in the best hands with both of them as our guides.

It was super fun and enjoyable! Pascal- pour guide- was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend you don’t leave Iceland without doing this!!

An incredible experience with great guides and a great understanding of the nature of Iceland and the impact of climate change.

A very exciting and an adrenaline pumping activity! Definitely recommend on having such a unique and special experience.
