If you're ready to experience other-worldly beauty, then this three-hour guided tour of a natural blue ice cave is just the ticket! In this tour you'll hop on a SuperTruck to experience hidden areas on a glacier outlet from Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. You'll see all sorts of ice formations from impressive caves to ice tunnels formed by the dynamic ever-changing Icelandic nature!
The tour begins when you meet your expert and friendly guides by the parking lot of Jökulsárlón. They will be waiting for you with a sign by our Super Jeep. After you have entered the vehicle, you’ll drive with your group up on the glacier. Make sure you bring comfortable pants, a warm sweater and a waterproof layer on top of it, in case it rains. Remember you are travelling in winter in Iceland!
The drive itself is exciting and bumpy! Your guide will make sure you feel safe at all times and learn absolutely everything there is to know about the area as you travel on our modified “Super Jeep”. Once you get to the home to the caves, you’ll take a short walk through the glacial landscape and learn about the world-famous Vatnajökull glacier and the surrounding areas, Game of Thrones locations and other productions that took place there.
Afterwards, your guide will show you how to put on the crampons that will be tied to your hiking boots and make it possible for you to walk on the ice. Ice caves are stunning natural phenomena and a must-see for anyone visiting Iceland during wintertime. Before you know it, you’ll be standing inside an ancient glacier that holds a natural blue ice cave with different shades of blue colours and formations.
The structure and condition of the ice caves vary greatly each season. Our guide decides which cave to visit every day depending on safety and weather conditions. Don’t worry, once there, you’ll have plenty of time to take that picture to frame and share with everyone back home. Moreover, you might be lucky enough and visit other formations such as ice tunnels and crevasses that are made out of blue ice. Don’t forget your camera! After happy memories are created, you’ll return happy and warm to continue your travels.
The meeting point is in the parking lot of Jökulsárlón, the glacier lagoon. Our guides will be by Super Jeep with a sign marked Troll Expeditions south to the Jökulsárlón Cafeteria.
