Nauthúsagil Canyon

As midday approaches, there will be a stop along the way (N1 Fuel Station) to grab a quick lunch which you can eat on the way (or feel free to bring your own).  Then you’ll find your way to Nauthúsagil Canyon.  Which is a hidden wonder carved by the powerful forces of glaciers and rivers over thousands of years.  Here you’ll learn about an area on the edge of the Icelandic Highlands that is steeped in history and folklore.   Our driver guide who also duals as a professional photographer will lead you on the hike through this enchanting ravine.  

There, you’ll be surrounded by towering cliffs and cascading waterfalls.  You’ll feel like you’re in an episode of Vikings as you immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Iceland as you traverse through moss-covered rocks, clear drinkable streams.  With your Viking attire on, you’ll be captured discovering the magic of this remote wilderness.

Tour to Nauthusagil Canyon

Icelandic Turf Houses

Ready to experience the roots of Icelandic culture?  You will have the opportunity to experience an old Icelandic turf house.  The kind of house early settlers lived in.  Not only is the outside picturesque but the inside is educational!

Turf House Stop on Viking Tour with Ice Pic Journeys

Kvernufoss Waterfall

Next on this Ultimate Viking Experience, a hidden waterfall adventure awaits you!  Some say the area screams iconic Viking movie set and we whole heartedly agree.  After a short 10-15 minute stroll, you’ll be mesmerized by the winding path and waterfall view.  Maybe take a moment before or after your photos here to fill up your water bottle?

Ultimate Viking Experience in Iceland

Skogafoss Waterfall

In Norse mythology, Skógafoss is tied to the famed stories of Þrasi Þórólfsson, a legendary Viking settler.  Sagas say that Þrasi buried a treasure chest behind the waterfall.  According to the myth, locals found the chest years later, but only managed to grab onto its ring before it disappeared again.  Explore and be photographed within this magical area during this Ultimate Viking experience!

Ultimate Viking Photo Tour

Horseback Riding

The second half of the day will lead you to Mr. Iceland’s countryside paradise.  Mr Iceland is a local legend renowned for his knowledge of Icelandic culture and history.  Our adventure continues not only with an Icelandic horseback riding experience but also photos of your interaction. 

Learn about and mount these majestic creatures while you take scenic ride through the Icelandic countryside.  Imagine yourself trotting along feeling the wind in your hair as you gallop and feel the Icelandic horses claim to fame, the 5th gait.  You’ll walk away with a deep appreciation and be forever connected with the spirit of the Icelandic horse.

Hoseback Riding with Mr Iceland

Dinner with Local Viking Celebrity

As the day draws to a close, we’ll gather for a communal dinner with Mr. Iceland to dine on delectable Icelandic cuisine.  He will tell you tales of Viking lore and mythology, allowing you to gain further insight into the ancient traditions that continue to shape Iceland’s identity.

Fair to say, adventure awaits at every turn during this Ultimate Viking Experience!  From an immersive portrait session to a scenic location, hike, horseback riding, and cultural encounters, this monumental tour offers a unique glimpse into the legendary world of the Norse warriors.  Plus you’ll walk away with braggable professional photos of your days long adventure your friends will be green with envy over!

There is no other company I would recommend than Ice Pic Journeys for an Iceland adventure! We traveled to Iceland with an idea in mind and two children (4 and 5 years old), and Ryan helped us create an itinerary that was perfect for our family! He helped us arrange an incredible dog sledding experience (on land) which was unforgettable. We embarked on the Golden Circle tour and then visited the Blue Lagoon. Our tour guide, Norris, was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgeable, fun, and showed us everything in Iceland along the way. The entire day trip was amazing, and we felt so immersed in the scenery, the sites, and all of the adventure. The entire day was exactly what we imagined! Ryan was also incredibly flexible with our schedule - we decided to change our second day of touring from hiking to site seeing (which seemed better for us with kids), and he helped create a new itinerary for the South Coast that was perfect. We loved curating the Black Sand Beach and the waterfalls. We had an opportunity to explore at each site on our own and with our amazing tour guide, Agnies, who was such a pleasure to be with and who really gave us some background on everything we visited. We can’t wait to return and use them again for new journeys in Iceland!!

Ryan and Mike elevated our experience beyond expectation. Impeccable communication and attention to details. They really listened to what we wanted to do and adapted their guidance around that. We felt 100% safe and comfortable at all times during all of our adventures. They accommodated our children as if they were there own and left no stone unturned when it came to their safety. We came across many other tours and guides in a variety of environments and I can say, without question, Ice Pic Journeys is hands down the best. There was really not even a comparison to be made. If you are thinking you’ll take on Iceland on your own, you really should reconsider. If you are considering any other guide service, you definitely should reconsider. Give these guys a shot, you will not regret it.

Mike was an amazing tour guide! He went above and beyond what I had expected. My experience above the glacier was a memorable one with great company! He’s a fun guide and very knowledgeable. The videos and picture I got out this experience were well worth it, he made sure I got the shots I wanted!

Wij hebben de zipline en ice cave adventure gedaan en dat was geweldig. Onze gids Mike heeft ons erg veilig laten voelen. Ook namen ze echt de tijd om gave foto’s van je te maken. Het was gewoon zo gaaf en ik raad het iedereen aan. ICE pic tourneys geeft je de beste ervaring ooit die je kan krijgen in Iceland

Amazing experience. We booked the 4 hour photographer tour and it was worth every cent! We were tight in time as we had another tour booked right after this one but Ryan was flexible enough to move up the departure schedule by half an hour to accommodate our schedule. Communication was great also, he made sure we understand what to expect with tighter timeline. The guide on the day Adam was also very nice. We started super early and were able to shoot inside the ice cave with no one around, we only encountered other groups when we finished our hike, just when were were about to reach our car to get back. Can’t imagine how full it would be in such a tight space to walk. Highly recommended.

It was an amazing tour with our guide Adam. We have booked the ZIP-Line and Glacier Cave Tour. It was great to see how Adam setup the ZIP-Line and afterwards when we were able to use it on our own we had a blast of fun. Furthermore the pictures we received were awesome! I would recommend everyone to book a tour at these guys!

These guys are god tier amazing. Mike is a Legend and this is the only company that allows you to go glacier ziplining (and it’s the only place on the planet that you can actually zip line on a glacier to begin with). Don’t overthink it, book with these guys!

The itinerary struck the perfect balance between sightseeing and free time, and we got to see some incredible places. I highly recommend Ice Pic Journeys for anyone looking for a fun, extreme and well-organized tour.

My family of three recently embarked on a 6-hour glacier tour with Ice Pic Journeys, and it was nothing short of a spectacular experience. This tour agency not only specializes in guided tours but also in capturing breathtaking photographs throughout the journey. Ryan coordinated with us through email, and he was super communicative and accommodating throughout the whole experience. Our guide, Rich, was extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and talented in his photography skills. He made sure to focus on taking natural and candid photos, making us feel relaxed and at ease. Rich was attentive to our needs and made a point to take us to isolated and fascinating locations that enhanced our experience. The ice caves we visited were simply stunning, and Rich captured their beauty perfectly. He also took fantastic photos on the diamond black sand beach, creating memories we will cherish forever. For our nighttime Aurora photography session, we were joined by Mike, who was just as amazing. He was upbeat, friendly, and encouraging, which definitely helped keep our spirits high despite the cold weather. Mike worked tirelessly until 1 am to get the best shots, even though he had plans the following morning. Their dedication to their craft was evident, as they even offered to continue taking photos past that point if we wanted. At no point did it feel like they were cutting corners or giving anything less than their all. Our experience with Ice Pic Journeys was truly exceptional, and we cannot recommend them highly enough. If you're looking for an unforgettable adventure in Iceland and want to take home incredible photographs, don't hesitate to book a tour with Ice Pic Journeys.

Amazing, one of a kind tour Best part of our trip to Iceland. The ice cave was definitely one of the most beautiful and surreal places I have ever seen. Mike was very helpful with information about the area and tailoring the trip to our specific needs. The photo package was the clincher. Was traveling with friends I don't see often so the photos were the best souvenir we could ask for. They were great both for the quality and because it meant we could just enjoy the day without stopping to take photos ourselves. Can't say enough great things about it!

Best day of our Trip! We found Ice Pic Journeys online after a lot of research - they were the company that offered the most unique tours and what sealed the deal was how quick they were to respond when I had questions. We chose the Zip Line Adventure - Adam, our guide was a blast. It was my boyfriend and I, as well as two other women who had booked that day. He was easy to chat with, and made us feel at ease, given what we were about to embark on. The initial hike up was outstanding. Adam made sure to give us plenty of fun facts and had us laughing the whole way up. Upon arrival to our first stop, Adam took the time to explain what we would be doing - zip lining over a Moulin. Once all setup, he got us safely strapped in, explained again what all we had to do and then off we went. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. Not once did I feel unsafe or uncertain. He made it fun and relaxing and we got professional shots to boot. It's such a great part of the package and he really made sure to get as many pictures as possible. We hiked back down, made one more stop into a crevasse, drank glacier water, climbed into an awesome cave-like area and then made our way to the truck. I can't recommend this company enough. Everyone was so polite, happy to answer questions, and made this experience one we'll never forget. Definitely book with these guys!

Incredible company, wild adventures! Ice Pic Journeys was a fantastic experience! From the ease of booking, to the expertise of the guide, to the photos we received, everything was exceptional. Our guide Adam was super knowledgeable about Iceland and was kind, funny, and also worked with my boyfriend to plan an epic proposal! The zipline he set up also looked totally safe and secure, and of course he tested it himself before letting us go haha. And then the ice cave was beautiful. We ended up getting to drink fresh glacier water too! We ended up being the only 2 on the adventure and it truly felt like a personal experience. I can’t recommend this company enough. They made our time in Iceland unforgettable!

Glacier Adventures I hired Mike for 8 days of private guiding in March 2023. It was the adventure of a lifetime! We explored glaciers, ice caves, and the Icelandic alpine. Mike is a charismatic and incredibly experience guide. He is also a great photographer. Finding a guide that can take you to amazing places, and also take great photos/videos of the adventures is extremely hard to find. I highly recommend Ice Pic Journeys and will use them again on my next trip to Iceland!

Private tour, with amazing guide ! Had a amazing time with these guys, I traveled solo and the group was only 3 ppl, amazing experience with a private guide. Definitely worth it, it was the highlight of my trip to Iceland! You get all the details and information you need, and if you have any questions, you can chat on instagram, and respond very quickly. This company treats you as a person, and not a number or a paying customer like all other tours !

Ice Pic Journeys approach is unique We had our tour with Mike and I can honestly say our trip to Iceland would not be the same without this. We had the best time! Mike was very knowledgeable, sharing all different aspects about the cave we were and the conditions we would be experiencing. He was also very concern with our safety and aware of us and our surrounding. All of that while maintaining a very friendly interaction. The ice on the cake was the fact that their offer is unique, there is not another company in Iceland that offers the same experiences with a guide that is also a good photographer. Plus, we were indeed a very small group. While we were there I saw other tours advertised as “small groups” with 16-20 people, which was completely different than the very exclusive attention and experience we had with Ice Pic Journeys.
