Breiðamerkurjökull Ice Cave, Iceland

Photograph by Guy Havell

Travelers follow a path into the mind-bending landscape of Iceland's Breiðamerkurjökull ice cave. The naturally formed cave is located beneath a southern tongue of Vatnajökull glacier, which covers around 8 percent of the country. Every year, shifting ice causes new caves to develop and old ones to disappear.
