This tour brings you an experience of a lifetime, the chance to set foot inside a unique ice cave in the winter world of Vatnajökull glacier, Europe's largest ice cap. The cave has breathed life into some of the greatest photography of Iceland with its blue ice and frozen wonders. The tour can take between 2,5 - 4 hours. 

Every autumn, Glacier Adventures sets out on an ice cave hunt to find new and exciting caves to present in their winter tours. Ice caves are formed by mother nature and therefor weather dependent. Some caves require a temperature below zero or no rainy days leading up to our visit. 

We visit one ice cave and we always choose the best cave available according to safety and weather condition. This can affect both driving and walking time of the tour. Driving to the location can take 25-45 minutes and the walk to the ice cave can take from 5 to 60 minutes. You should have in mind that the walking is always in the pure Icelandic nature on gravel and rough terrain.   Rented equipment: We have rain jackets and pants to rent for this tour if needed. Rental price for jacket and pants is 1.000.- ISK  

In this tour you will experience a unique ice cave in the wonders of Vatnajökull glacier, Europe's largest ice cap. The tour is intended for those who want to visit an ice cave, get great photo opportunities and an unforgettable experience. The tour can take between 2,5 – 4 hours. The tour, guided by a local guide from Hali, will take you through the region’s history from settlement until today.

Each autumn, Glacier Adventure goes for an ice cave hunt to use for adventures during the coming winter. Ice caves are formed by Mother Nature and therefore weather dependent. Some caves have to have temperature below zero, or no rainy days before our visit.
