In this ice cave tour you will experience unique ice caves 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. Our guides will tell you lot about the area here so this is a great way to learn about the history and glacier change in southeast Iceland.
The tour can take between 3-4 hours. The meeting point is from our Glacier Adventure Base at Hali, 12 km east of Jökulsárlón. The tour will take you through the region’s history from settlement until today. First part is in a super 4x4 jeep and then there is about 1 1/2 km hike through area that has recently come from underneath the glacier. We stay at the Sapphire Ice Cave for about 30 minutes or at least long enough to take perfect pictures.
