Duration4 hours

DifficultyModerate

Step into another world when you explore the fantastic features on the surface of the glacier and the naturally forming ice caves inside of this icy giant.

What to expect?

On this Ice Cave and Glacier Walk combo tour, you will explore the naturally formed ice caves and ice tunnels of Svínafellsjökull, before heading off to a glacier walk on crampons around the glacier tongue.

The ice caves, only accessible in winter, open up for exploration when the meltwater underneath the glacier freezes over and leaves behind these ice tunnels. Your experienced guide will tell you more about their formation and show you around the caves. You will get plenty of time to take pictures of these breathtaking surroundings.

You will then head up to the surface of the glacier, where your guide will lead you through the ever-changing glacial landscape. They will show you deep crevasses and unique ice features, whilst teaching you about the behavior of glaciers and their impact on nature.

The drive to Svínafellsjökull from the starting point in Skaftafell is only 10 minutes, so you will get plenty of time to explore the ice.
