LOCAL GUIDE of Vatnajokull is the leading ice cave tour operator in Iceland and was actually the first company to offer daily ice cave tours in Iceland while it was part of ÖRÆFAFERÐIR FromCoastToMountains.

This winter our Ice Cave Tour takes you to the amazing Blue Diamond Ice Tunnel. We will drive our super jeeps up to the glacier and then on the glacier to get to the ice cave location so there is not much walking needed.

The average duration of the tour is around 3 hours, however this can change a bit depending on how much snow has fallen on the route. The Blue Diamond Ice Tunnel is normally not very crowded since there are only couple of companies going there, but in some cases we will stop in some smaller tunnels and ice caves while we wait our turn.

However, we also offer the Sapphire Ice Cave for the  same price, but there we need to walk 1 1/2 km each way from the parking so it is a little bit more challenging trip.

Book your ice cave tour here:

The meeting place is located 5 hour drive 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.
