Ice cave in Iceland │ Iceland Winter Photography

Documenting Iceland (2016)

by: Rafn Sig,-

It’s always an experience to go inside an Ice cave. I and few of my friends, where walking along at the edge of Vatnajökull Glacier when we came across a small crack which led into a deep, narrow, but beautiful cave. We spent the day there photographing and got some great shots. If you decide to do it yourself, then you have to do it in wintertime as it is dangerous to explore them in the summertime when they start to melt.

Ice caves are temporary structures that appear at the edge of glaciers. They look amazingly beautiful from the inside. The waterfall melts a hole into the glacier while the ponded water drains towards lower elevations by forming long ice caves with an outlet at the terminus of the glacier.
