Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - We're exploring glacier caves and moulins below the majestic Matterhorn on the Gorner glacier in Switzerland. This annual expedition monitors the rate in which these caves change over time. For the next few weeks I'll be uploading photographs from the expedition here. For more from this year and last year's expedition please visit my feed @shonephoto by natgeo

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Deep inside the Gorner glacier Switzerland a member of our team of Italian explorers ascends a rope in a narrow slot through the beautifully sculptured ice. As a result of the movement of the glacier such moulins don't exist for long it is therefore important to carry out thorough documentation as next year this cave will be gone. by natgeo

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Ten years after the 'Raging Danger' expedition that featured in the September 2006 issue of @NatGeo magazine I'm heading back to the same island New Britain to continue exploration of these wild and ferocious rivers that flow through the vast caves of Papua New Guinea. by natgeo

Photo by @Shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - The rate at which a glacier moves is influenced by water lubricating the underside between ice and the bedrock. Pictured here an Italian explorer rappels down a 15m (50ft) vertical drop inside the Gorner glacier in Switzerland that was created by surface meltwater carving its route through the ice to the base. by natgeo

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Here is a view looking down a moulin at an explorer ascending a rope inside a 15m (50ft) vertical shaft on the Gorner glacier Switzerland. Most of these moulins seem to terminate in deep pools of icy cold water somewhere close to the base of the glacier and this one was no exception. by natgeo

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Once both nets of equipment had been dropped off on the mountain next to the cave most of the team hitched a ride in the helicopter up to base camp leaving six of us to hike up around the back of Conturines - Spitze the mountain in the Italian Dolomites where the cave lies. However thanks to fresh deep snow that had fallen the night before progress was slow and very tiring. by natgeo

Photo: @chrisburkard The Sólheimajökull glacier in Iceland is one of the many retreating glaciers of the world. Walking into it and being surrounded by the deep blue thousand year old ever cracking ice is an unforgettable experience and a memory that will stay with anyone fortunate enough to visit it. by natgeoadventure
