May I offer you to step inside a glacier? Exploring a glacier from the interior sounds unimaginable but at Langjökull glacier it is possible! This guided glacier tour will take you to the top of the glacier and INTO a man-made ice tunnel. Keep exploring if you are interested in an unforgettable experience.

What to expect?

Your Into The Glacier Adventure is truly a unique experience. You will get the opportunity of a lifetime to enjoy one of the world’s greatest wilderness; Iceland’s second largest glacier – from the inside.

Never before the Langjokull ice tunnels, has anyone been able to see the beautiful blue ice at the heart of an ice cap glacier. You’ll get to drive in a specially modified snow truck on the glacier, explore the glacier environment, enjoy a view out of this world and go INTO the glacier to experience the glacier’s beauty from the inside!

From the basecamp you will catch a ride in modified glacier vehicles made to explore the glacier environment and enjoy the view as the driver will take you to the top of the ice cap. Once you are at the glacier tunnel an experienced guide will lead the way the whole time to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves to the fullest. It is time to take ice cap glacier exploration to a whole new level. Dive in. Welcome on board!
