Description

This trip is an amazing add on for anyone who is doing the ring road, visiting the Glacial Lagoon or staying over in the south east of Iceland!

Expert guides will take you into one of the many Ice caves that can be found in Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull.

Highlights:

  • Ice cave tour

  • Super jeep ride

This is a “meet on location” tour in which you will be meeting up at the Hali Country Hotel, 13 km east of Jökulsárlón (the glacier lagoon)

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 – 5 hours.

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. In this tour we visit one ice cave and we always choose the best cave available according to safety and weather condition. This will 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.  

The Glacier Lagoon (Jökulsárlón)

This area is a large glacial lake in the south east of Iceland. Jökulsárlón has been a setting for four Hollywood movies: A View to a Kill, Die Another Day, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and Batman Begins, as well as the reality TV series Amazing Race.

Vatnajökull

Vatnajökull is the largest glacier not only in Iceland but also in Europe. Its name translates to “The water glacier” and its area takes up 8% of the total landmass of Iceland.

Important information:

Please remember that this is a “meet on location” tour in which you will be meeting at the Hali Country Hotel. It is best practice to try and arrive around 20 minute before your departure time.

The length of time this tour will take will vary quite dramatically based on which of the Ice caves are accessible on the day of the tour.

You will be driven to the destination via a super jeep but you may also need to hike an amount of the way to reach the cave's entrance.
