Why take this tour?

Ice Cave tour to Vatnajökull, Iceland´s largest glacier: In the incredible surroundings of the glacier lagoon and the biggest glacier in Europe, this tour has it all: glacier hike, super jeep ride, and magical blue ice cave; the tour takes you into a remote ice cave in the Vatnajokull icecap, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of a crystal blue ice cave and the intense, beautiful blue color inside. We meet at Jökulsárlón (Glacier Lagoon) and drive in a jeep for about thirty minutes to where we begin the hike. Then, the walk to the ice cave takes about one to one-and-a-half hours. The hike leads through a rocky and uneven terrain of glacial moraine and onto the glacier itself. We´ll have plenty of time on this tour and fewer people than usual. If you are a photographer who wants to capture the magic of the ice cave, this is a tour we recommend for you.
