While our driver gets ready for departure, the guide will welcome you into the largest custom made super jeep in Iceland. We will drive on and off road all the way to the snout of the Glacier outlet Breiðamerkurjökull. On the way, your guide will explain how the caves are formed while the driver manages the route. We will then adjust our crampons and helmets and get ready to hike to the glacier. The cave is about 1/2 hour walk from the parking at the glacier. Inside the cave, we can admire the blue colour of the ice. Once inside the caves, we will have as much time to explore as nature allows.
Our fleet consists of the some of the largest custom made super jeeps in Iceland. They can take up to 15 passengers plus the driver and the guide.

Sometimes we will not be able to access the caves because of the weather. If the rain has been intense the previous days before the tour, the cave will need to evacuate the water (since the ice cave is the plumbing system of the glacier). If that happens, we will go the extra mile and explore other cave-like formations such as glacier arches and moulins. We will try to go as close to the ice cave entrance as possible and hike around the area to create a memorable adventure.

The meeting place is located over 5 hour drive away east of Reykjavík in clear road conditions and the duration of the drive often takes much longer time in icy and wintery conditions. We recommend people to stay close to us the night before the tour.
