Icelandic Ice Cave

DSC_1123Nick and I recently honeymooned in Europe and spent the majority of our vacation in Iceland. My favorite thing that we did was explore an ice cave that was dug into one of their largest glaciers. It was as cold as you would expect but I loved the way that they would incorporate LED lights into the ice to create a glowing effect. It was definitely an experience I would recommend to any visiting the area!

DSC_1066(The light would illuminate one portion of the cave and keep the rest in the dark. It was so beautiful)

DSC_1098(There were a couple of forks that would take you into different tunnels, we made sure to stick with the group so that we didn’t get lost!)

DSC_1115(When I saw this, I got a little spooked. Part of the cave was melting and creating this gorgeous view, the ice looked like crystal. But it got me thinking…the glacier was melting. Unfortunately, this ice cave probably won’t be here in the next 5 years.)

DSC_1137Here is the view from the glacier. Something I loved about Iceland was that at one moment you were soaking up the sun and the next you were standing on snow. From waterfalls to geysers, Iceland is a pretty magnificent place!
