wonders of Vatnajökull glacier, Europe’s largest ice cap. The tour is intended for those who want to visit an ice cave, get great photo opportunities and an unforgettable experience.

The tour can take between 2,5 – 3,5 hours. The meeting point is at Hali Country Hotel, 13 km east of Jökulsárlón (www.hali.is). The tour, guided by a local guide from Hali, will take you through the region’s history from settlement until today.

We spend about 30 – 40 minutes in the cave. The age limit is 10 years old.

Please note! We will not be the only group visiting the ice cave. This has become incredibly popular winter activity in Iceland. Other tour companies bring guests to visit the cave which can cause it to be crowded. Please expect to share the cave with additional groups.

For photographers, we recommend this tour

Each autumn, Glacier Adventure goes for an ice cave hunt to use for adventures during the coming winter. Ice caves are formed by Mother Nature and therefore weather dependent. Some caves have to have temperature below zero, or no rainy days before our visit.

In this tour we visit one ice cave and we always choose the best cave available according to safety and weather condition. This will affect both driving and walking time of the tour. Driving to the location can take 35-45 minutes and the walk to the ice cave can take from 5 to 15 minutes. You should have in mind that the walking is always in the pure Icelandic nature on gravel and rough terrain.
