What will I experience on this tour?

The Into the Glacier Ice Cave Tour is a great choice for people who want to really dive into the nature of Iceland.

By journeying into a series of man made tunnels inside the Langjökull glacier we are able to offer you a unique experience all throughout the year.

You will be able to learn about how glaciers form, what they can teach us and what threats they face from global warming.

Getting to the top of a glacier is easier said than done. That’s why we have something special for you.

We start at the base of the glacier at Húsafell and use a specially modified vehicles to get you to the peak! Those vehicles are probably something you’ve never seen before.

There is more than just the glacier

When the tour of the glacial caves is over we will bring you back to Reykjavík.

Before we reach the city you will be able to see some of the other local nature hot spots.

You will get a chance to take a picture or two at a series of waterfalls that stretch over 900 metres, called Hraunfossar.

Next, you will feel the heat at Deildartunguhver hot spring. Which is known as the fastest flowing hot spring in Europe. Traveling at a speed of 180 litres a second.

What others are saying

One of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. It IS a long time in a bus (about and hour and a half to the location & then an hour once you arrive to get to the glacier) but it is also very worth it. It’s such a unique experience! After the glacier we also stopped at waterfalls and a hot spring. The water fall was beautiful! The hot spring was nothing to write home about but it was a pleasant enough stop. I would definitely recommend the tour!

This was hands down our favorite tour! It's the one we always mentions when friends/family ask us how our trip to Iceland was. So incredibly cool to be able to go into an actual ice cave and the tour guide who's brother helped tunnel out the caves was incredibly knowledgeable about the whole excavation process. It's fairly deep and a very cool experience. Our driver Snowman for the trip was by far our favorite as well. Told us a lot of fun facts about the culture and people of Iceland and was very personable and funny. Highly recommend.

We're a family of four, the youngest age 12. From beginning to end we had a fantastic day. From being collected the driver was full of information about history of Iceland and she was so funny and a bit crazy.
