Ice Cave and Glacier Discovery Full Day Private Tour


Our Glacier Walk Journey begins with a 4x4 ride in a modified Land Rover Defender heading towards one of the Vatnajökull glacial outlets. Once we get close, we will walk through recently shaped landscapes and over moraines to reach the edge of the glacier. Before we embark and take our first steps, we will take you through a safety brief as well as equipping everyone with crampons, harness, helmets and an ice axe. From here we take our first steps on the glacier. Entering the cave, take a moment to stand in awe and admire the breathtaking beauty of nature’s artwork. We spend between 30 to 45 minutes exploring the Sapphire ice cave before we continue our journey onto the glacier to explore crevasses and moulins. Along the journey we will share local knowledge of the area, the glacier and surrounding glacial terrain, perhaps even stopping to drink the purest water which can be found in Iceland. Since our tours are private, we give you the option to go to see the glacial wall on Breidamerkurjokull or we can keep exploring the glacial formations.
