What to expect?

In this tour you will experience a unique ice cave in the wonders of Vatnajökull glacier, Europe's largest ice cap. The tour is suitable for those who want to visit a more isolated ice cave and more difficult to access. This tour offers you great photo opportunities and an unforgettable experience.

The level of this tour is hard. In this tour we visit one ice cave. This cave is more difficult to access and therefore we offer it as a more quiet and personal tour for our participants, where we have one guide for every 4 persons, and only up to 8 persons in each group. Our guides decide if it is safe enough to do the tour according to weather and safety conditions. If we cancel the tour due to weather or safety conditions it is refundable.  The ice cave tour can take between 3,5 – 6 hours.

The tour is guided by a specialist in glaciers and ice caves. Driving to the location can take 25 - 30 minutes and the walk to the ice cave can take 45-90 minutes. We spend approximately 1 hour in the cave. You should have in mind that the walking in this tour is always in the pure Icelandic nature on gravel, rough terrain and glacier.  Rented equipment: We have rain jackets and pants to rent for this tour if needed. Rental price for jacket and pants is 1.000.- ISK

The meeting point is at Hali Country Hotel, 13 km east of Jökulsárlón (
