Ice Cave Tour

In this trip we visit the most beautiful accessible ice cave of Vatnajökull of each season. In the winter 2019-20 it was the Sapphire Ice Cave where we had about 1300 meter walk from the parking to the ice cave, but in some years the most suitable ice cave is much less walk. We will update the location next fall when we have scouted the ice caves after the summer 2020.
