“In some of the caves I photograph, you have to walk with five-kilometer long crampons in one direction, and some even go down a rope and climb back up again,” says Einar Runar Sigurdson, a 48-year-old local guide.

“Some of them are full of water, so I can only visit them in winter, when it is coldest and when the water is cold enough for me to walk on. “Some caves are very unstable, even in winter, so we don’t visit them even though they look beautiful,” he added.

The Vatnajokull glacier covers an area of 8,200 square kilometers, and in its thickest parts it is one kilometer thick. Together with its surroundings it was declared a national park in 2008.
