Crystal Ice Cave Adventure


Meet your guide at Glacier Adventures headquarters in Hali, located 8 miles (13 km) east of Jökulsárlón. Set off for Vatnajökull glacier in the morning or afternoon, depending on the departure time selected at booking.  Driving to the location can take 25–45 minutes, based on the best ice cave available, a determination made according to safety and weather conditions. Your guide has local knowledge of the geological features of the region and hunts for ice caves to include on outdoor adventures each season. During the Jeep ride, learn how ice caves are formed and hear about the area's history. Upon reaching your destination, it's anywhere from a 5- to 60-minute hike to the cave over some gravel, ice, and other Icelandic terrain. If necessary, your guide will help you use the provided helmet, ice axe, harness, and crampons. Soak up an unforgettable experience as you marvel at the magnificent surroundings inside an ice cave, including plenty of photo ops. Your tour may last between 2.5–5 hours with return 4WD transport to the starting point.
