Ice Caving with FromCoastToMountains travel service

2019-12-30 at 12-26-32.jpg

Private Ice Cave Tour for one or two serious photographers at a time.

Trip to an interesting but remote ice cave that provides both good quality ice cave photography and the remoteness causing it to be out of the crowds.

The price is 200.000 ISK and the transport for 1-2 clients and glacier gear is provided. The reason for max 2 clients is both to be able to get to remote locations where the glacier is sometimes too slippery and technical to reach and to have a tailor-made experience without the frustration of too many people in the ice cave at the same time. This trip is only for photographers in good physical condition and with good outdoor gear. Technical boots can be rented if needed.

Your guide will be one of Iceland's most experienced mountain guide and ice cave photographer Einar Rúnar Sigurðsson

Meetin Place: Café Vatnajökull in Fagurhólsmýri at 9:00 unless otherwise agreed upon

Time of year: November to March

Duration: I only book one trip per day allowing me some flexibility depending on weather and conditions. Bring food and drink and cloths for a full day tour.

Helicopter Ice Cave Tour

In the helicopter ice cave tour we team up with a sightseeing flight company in Skaftafell and they get us to a remote ice cave location where they leave us for a couple of hours while we focus on photographing beautiful ice caves out of the crowds. The total cost of each tour is 400.000 ISK and the helicopter takes a max of 4 clients plus the guide and pilot. While private only, we do take requests from photographers that want to do the tour, but to cut down the cost ask us to try and find like-minded people to join them. So we will publish here on the page these tour dates where we have requests later this winter.

Meetin Place: Skaftafell Terminal at 9:00 (departure time will probably be more close to 11:00 at Christmas due to day light hours)

Time of year: November to March

Duration: I only book one trip per day allowing me some flexibility depending on weather and conditions. Most of the time we are 3-4 hours on the tour but weather and safety will come first, so in some cases we have to work faster.
