This is the ultimate glacier photography tour in Iceland. An adventure that is catered to those wanting to get the best shots for their portfolios on 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. Unlike the rest of Iceland, shooting the glacier gives you unique photos that nobody can ever copy since the glacier is always moving and changing.

BEHIND THE SCENES
what are our guests saying?
Ryan always knows how to pick a good ice cave for photography and he’ll get you at the spot at the right time. I got some of my favorite images from Iceland with him and his professionalism has made all the tours I took with him memorable. Thanks for being such an incredible guide Ryan.
The whole journey into the ice caves and the Falljökull glacier was awesome. Ryan is an excellent guide and very funny. Can’t wait to back to Iceland and do some new journeys and learn more about those places.
Ryan is a great guy who we enjoyed working with! Even with a special request (a slightly disabled woman) he found us a beautiful accessible ice cave that delighted everyone’s eyes! And all in safety and with a smile, I recommend!
