ICE CAVE TOUR - HALF DAY
23.900 ISK Per Person (Extra Small group) (October to March)
ABOUT THE TOUR
Our half-day tour begins with a 4x4 ride in a modified Toyota Land Cruiser into the glacial valley, heading towards one of Vatnajökull´s glacial outlets. From there, we begin our hike across the valley towards the glacier. The 2km hike offers unique views of the mountains surrounding the glacier, building excitement and anticipation as we get closer to the edge of the ice.
Once inside the cave, take a moment to experience the glacier in 360 degrees - feel the water droplets falling from the cave ceiling, hear the sound of the glacial river next to your feet and touch the crystal blue ice on the cave walls.
We spend around 30-45 minutes exploring the ice cave. Our experienced local guides will give you tips and tricks for capturing the best photos of the most beautiful places. We will also share local knowledge of the area, the glacier and the surrounding glacial terrain.
After the cave we will hike back out the same way we came in, jump back into the Land Cruiser and make our way back to the Glacier Lagoon.
THE ICE CAVE
Each season we always choose to visit the most beautiful cave Vatnajökull has to offer. Our aim is to avoid the crowds by timing the departure accordingly and first and foremost, only offer an extra small group experience(max 6 persons). The last few years the cave of choice has been the Sapphire Ice Cave.
NOTE: Current pictures are from previous years, we will update them once the season starts(October) and we have a good and accurate idea of how the cave will look.
