The park is noted for its blue icebergs, which depict all sort of sizes and shapes. And the light over the icy landscape sets many moods for your landscape photographs. Winters have shorter days but then the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) make their appearance and there is nothing in the world like seeing the lights dancing in the backdrop of the icy landscape here.
During winter, Iceland Landscape Photo Tour leads participants the crystal ice caves. Made entirely of ice sculpted by nature over many years. The patterns and ridges create surface designs on these deep-tunnel-like ice caves, in places such as Vatnajokull.

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear at a given time. There is however always plenty to see and do if conditions do not favor any part of our original plan.
