Sapphire Ice Cave in Breiðamerkurjökull
Beautiful blue ice cave


This is a chance to visit the most stunning blue ice cave that form in the winter months in the outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Iceland. This is an incredible experience that many people won´t have in their lifetime and we are excited to take you to the cave.

This ice cave is a little bit more difficult to access than on our normal ice cave tour, but the hike is not long (less than 1 1/2 km each way).

On this trip we will drive for about 1/2 hour to a glacier in the local area and then hike about 1/2 km to reach the ice cave location. This tour does involve walking on uneven terrain but it is rather easy ground.

What to bring: Hiking boots, outdoor clothes, gloves and hat.

Book your ice cave tour here:

The meeting place is located 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.
