Explore one of the highlights of winter in Iceland on this small-group ice caving tour of the aurora ice cave in Vatnajokull National Park. Those who want to see a beautiful cave made of colorful ice should grab this rare opportunity now by booking the tour.

The spectacular winter adventure in Iceland begins as you arrive at the parking lot of the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. The tour doesn’t include pick-up and drop-off from any Icelandic location, so you must arrange your transportation separately. 

You’ll meet your English-speaking guide at the lagoon, who’ll quickly brief you about the three-hour itinerary. For a safer and more comfortable ice caving experience, the friendly guide will also provide you with safety equipment and glacier gear.

After suiting up and taking the safety instructions, the group will depart from the Jokulsarlon lagoon. Aboard a super truck fit for rugged terrain, you’ll venture into the frozen wonderland of Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in Iceland. The ride to your destination takes roughly half an hour and is an excellent adventure of its own.

A breathtaking view of the aurora ice cave immediately greets the group as soon as you arrive. The cave is large enough to accommodate multiple people inside simultaneously, with enough space to explore and move around.

Inside the cave, you’ll see different shades of ice walls, mostly light to deep ocean blue. There will also be hints of other colors, from gray to green, allowing you to make the most out of your caving experience. Apart from the stunning ice walls, there are other exciting ice formations inside that your guide will take you to happily.

The name of the beautiful aurora ice cave came from another winter highlight in Iceland, the aurora borealis. During the discovery of the cave by two guides, the northern lights were also shining brightly in the skies, reflecting its colors on the ice walls.

Ice caves in Iceland, like the aurora borealis, are ever-changing as glaciers melt and freeze with the seasons. You can only visit them during winter when their structures become stable and safe enough to enter. That’s why when you join the tour, you’re the few ones lucky enough to see their magnificence. 

After a few hours of exploring the ice cave and its surrounding glacier landscapes, you’ll head back to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, having seen one of Iceland’s winter attractions. Before returning to Reykjavik, you may also explore the glacier lagoon, as it’s one of the top attractions of Iceland.

Wear winterproof clothes with thermal layers to help you prepare for this winter tour, as Icelandic weather can be frigid. In addition, you should also bring sturdy hiking shoes to make your ice caving experience safe and convenient. 

Experience the best winter attraction of Iceland as you explore the spectacular aurora ice cave on this small-group caving tour from the Jokulsarlon lagoon. Check availability now by choosing a date.
