Tour Description

We leave early from Reykjavík and catch the crisp morning view of the Langjökull Glacier where the ice Cave is situated and the lava fields that contain the lava cave.

You soon learn that in Iceland everything is possible – before you know it you suddenly find yourself standing on top of an Ice Cap and about to begin your descent down below the surface to explore what lies beneath. In order to get there, we step aboard a huge specially-modified truck and drive up the glacier to the cave.

The Ice Tunnel or Ice Cave is a man-made glacier cave high up in a remote area in the highlands of Iceland. Your guide will explain how global warming has begun to affect the glacial environment and take you on a magical journey deep within the glacier. You get to see stunning blue glacier ice and wonderful glacier formations.

The glacier is in constant motion and we can witness that movement of nature itself firsthand. The temperature inside the glacier is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit and until very recently what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery.

After our ice cave tour, we get back on board the glacier truck and head straight to Iceland’s mightiest lava cave, Víðgelmir. Just shy of 5,250 feet (1,600 meters), Víðgelmir is one of the largest lava caves in the world. Your guide will show and explain to you the features of the cave, including its colors, lava and ice formations, and stalactites and stalagmites.

This tour is very family friendly, thanks to our all-new signature walkway and feature lighting. Afterward, we take a scenic route back to Reykjavík.

Please note that this tour does not have scheduled lunch time so please bring lunch with you or order packed lunch from us.
