On the list of absolute must see places in Iceland, visiting an Ice Cave was pretty high on top of my list! Well, ice caves are close during summer! Simply too dangerous and unstable!. That is one thing I didn’t know when I first visited Iceland so that was a little disappointment for me. But hey, Iceland is a big island so you have to go more then once to fully enjoy it!! 😉 Last year, I visited Iceland in November and had an awesome chance to visit one ice cave! The whole experience is just mind blowing! You actually have to walk on the glacier to get to the cave... The hike itself requires some special equipment which consist of an ice crampons, an ice axe and a harness. Once you’re all geared to go to north pole, you start the hike! I was stunned to see how clean and clear the ice was! It was even mesmerizing to see six plus feet under my own boots! The first thing that actually came to my mind was am I going to see Srat from Ice Age stucked into the ice!! 🤣 Well I am sorry to disappoint you but I didn’t find Srat!! After two hours of hiking the Breidamerkurjokull Glacier, we finally made it to the cave!! And what an epic moment this was! Being inside the cave felt so peaceful and relaxing. I have to admit it is a bit humid in there...I was really surprised, there wasn’t too many people inside the cave and we almost had it to ourselves! People are often me asking how high is the ceiling of the cave? Well you see the person standing there? That person was an adult! 😉 This image was shot on @canonusa 5DSr with a Canon EF24-70 f2.8 at 24mm, 2 seconds, f10 and ISO200. Wanna do an Ice Cave Tour? Make sure to contact @localicelander !
