This tour takes you to the undersurface of a lava cave at Langjökull, which is also the largest cave of its kind in Iceland.

The tour is also operated in small groups to ensure that you have the full attention of your guide.

What to expect?

  • The Into Ice & Lava Tour is a chance to get both beneath the surface of a glacier and below the earth in a lava cave. We explore the man-made Ice Cave of Langjökull and the largest lava cave in Iceland, Víðgelmir. It is an amazing opportunity to get to know Iceland inside and out in the beautiful area of Borgarfjörður.

  • We depart early from Reykjavík city and enjoy some morning views of our destination, the Langjökull Glacier. Langjökull is 953 sq/km, making it the second largest glacier in the country. Step on board our all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets, you can use our "GPS-Sensitive, In-Bus Audio Guide", available in 10 languages: English, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (Mandarin) and German. Should you have any questions during the tour you can ask the host who will happily assist you. Onboard you will also find a USB charger and free wifi

  • To get to the man-made Ice tunnel and caves, located high up in a remote area of the glacier, we ride in a huge, specially-modified truck. Before you know it you find yourself standing on top of a vast ice-cap, ready to descend into the glacier and explore its icy netherworld. Your glacier guide will take you on an amazing journey, deep within the glacier where you can see the stunning blue-hued ice.

  • After our ice cave tour we head on to explore the mightiest lava cave in Iceland, Víðgelmir, which is just shy of 1600 meters/ 5250ft, making it one of the largest lava caves in the world. Your guide will show you the cave while explaining the amazing features that you'll see, e.g. the wonderful colors, lava stalactites and stalagmites, etc.

  • The lava field was formed during a destructive eruption in the 10th century that originated under Langjökull. The Lava Cave tour is extremely family friendly, thanks to our all-new signature walkway and featured lighting. Afterward, we take a scenic route back to Reykjavík.
