Only a few people know about this magnificent ice cave. Exploring this phenomena is surely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

What to expect?

This wonderful day tour starts early in the morning, with a drive from Reykjavík to the south of Iceland. En route, you will see a picturesque landscape that features the stark contrast of black sands, mossy green mountains, and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. After enjoying these gorgeous views, we arrive at the ice cave nestled in a location known only to a few. As we follow the path into the cave, you will notice the glistening walls and high ceiling made of ice that has been artfully sculpted by glacial water. The sounds of black sand crunching beneath our feet and water dripping inside the ice cave are the soundtrack for our adventure.

We will weave along a path before entering an epic opening in the ice cave that features its own sunroof. The light shining on the icy walls showcases the unique characteristics of this secret gem. Later on, we follow the front of the outlet glacier where it is standing high with ash covered ice wall, which forms the high contrast between the surrounding mountains and the glacier itself. The location of this cave allows for stunning views of the surrounding scenery.

Following our exploration of the fantastic secret ice cave, we stop near the Black Sand Beach at Hjörleifshöfði mountain area to experience more breathtaking Icelandic nature. Those who are coming from Reykjavík will enjoy one more scenic stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before heading back to their accommodation.
