Tour Description

Beat the crowds and explore Sapphire Ice Cave before the masses arrive. This is the earliest ice cave tour available in Iceland and allows you to experience the crystal blue ice with little to no people! Departure for this tour starts at 8:00 am and gives you a surreal experience of quiet magic before dozens of people arrive.

Your personal photographer and glacier guide will lead you onto one of Iceland’s most scenic outlet glaciers. As you immerse yourself into the blue ice, the guide will use his own camera equipment to take professional photos of you to capture the most special moments of your tour. Stops will be made into crystal blue ice caves and through deep crevasses formed by the glacier. Throughout the hike, you will learn about the history of Vatnajokull Glacier and how the ice work in nature. After the tour ends, your guide will professionally edit your photos and email them to you the next day. These photos will be the perfect souvenir and memory of your adventure in Iceland!

So happy with our trip with Ryan! My friends and I had the best time, he such a nice guy and interesting to talk to. I like to ask questions and I ask a lot of them but Ryan knew in depth answers to all of them. I learned so much about glaciers and ice caves!

The cave we visited is impressive and a little overwhelming but I always felt that I was in safe hands, Ryan calmly led us into the heart of the cave and told us how to move so that we were safe.
I would definitely use Ryan again!

What an unforgettable experience. I booked a glacier and ice cave hike with Ryan. To be honest, I was leaving with a good mood but no clue on what to expect. Ryan is a very easy-going person, so I felt comfortable with him rightaway. He has a positive energy. He explains Iceland’s geography and history in an easy-to-remember way.

He brought me to the most beautiful spot I have seen in my life. A very special ice cave. This was so special. I always felt safe on the ice thanks to him being around whenever you need a little helping hand. Super professional!

Not only knows Ryan everything there is to know about the country of ice and fire, but on top of that he turns out to be the best photographer. His pictures are epic. If you go to Iceland, it is more than worth the money spending a day, or even several, with him. I will for sure go back and hire him again.

Words cannot describe how fantastic this experience was! We had Mike Reid as our guide, and if we are ever lucky enough to visit Iceland again, we would definitely hire him to do another tour! He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and had top-notch gear for us to use – helmets, ice axes, crampons, etc. Glaciers are dangerous, and Mike always made us feel safe during the experience. He did a good job of gauging our level of physical fitness and doing things with us that were within our capabilities. The pictures he took were amazing and will be something we treasure for a lifetime!
