Glacier photography tour

The glacier Solheimajokull on a sunny winter day


There is a reason why photographers love glacier. It is no wonder why the films Game of Thrones, Interstellar, Batman, James Bond and Fast and the furious 8 all where photographed on ice in Iceland. There is a strange magic connected to a glacier. Indescribable beauty of frozen water filled with energy and beauty of this substance that is mother to all life on earth. 

Glaciers like Sólheimajökul, Svínafellsjökull, Mýrdalsjökull, Snæfellsjökull, Vatnajökull not to forget the notorious Eyjafjallajökull all have their special character, like being a living entity. 

You can not join a large group tour and expect to be able to get the time to capture the glory of a glacier in just few minutes. With all the crevasses, formation, mulans valleys and cracks you need time to select gear, set up tripod and find the right angle for the amazing glacier picture, and you need to stay safe while you search for the perfect picture.  

For the job you need a professional photographer and guide that understands the elements of waiting for the moment, searching for the layout and finding the right spot, while keeping you safe.
