  Helicopter Ice Cave Tour 

Ice Cave Photography Tour

Ice cave photography has become challenging in most ice caves in southeast Iceland due to number of people visiting them each day. On the helicopter ice cave tour we go to remote ice caves too far to hike to, so there is not much danger of overcrowded situations.
