Hop on our Super Jeep to experience one of Iceland's rarest natural phenomenon and most popular winter activity: a Blue Ice Cave in Vatnajökull National Park. This tour is for anyone who would like to explore the naturally formed blue ice cave in the wilderness of Europe's largest glacier located in famous Southern Iceland.

The tour departs from the famous glacier lagoon every day. After you have been picked up, you'll drive around 30 minutes up on a glacier outlet of Vatnajökull. Don't worry, the road will be bumpy, but your experienced guide will take care of the driving in these rough conditions.

Once you arrive, you'll take a short walk from the parking area to the cave itself. You'll receive all the necessary equipment and be accompanied by an experienced glacier guide into the mysterious blue cave. 

You'll get to stay inside for around 45 minutes while you learn absolutely everything there is to know about this natural wonder. Make sure you take pictures to take home to your friends and family. The deep blue of the glacial ice and the stunning formations are something to be never forgotten. You'll have the change to take that one picture you'll frame and make memories you'll cherish forever.

The return will be again on the same bumpy road, but now you'll be a different person after having experienced this wonderful gift of the Icelandic nature. Natural Blue Ice Caves are only formed when the winter begins, and the temperature goes down. They are incredibly dynamic and also change in colours, shades, shapes, and textures over the season. So, every year they are different, and every minute they are changing.

Blue ice caves are incredibly popular in the winter in Iceland, so save spot now. Check availability by choosing a date.

We absolutely loved this tour. The guide Binni was very knowledgable and the super jeep ride it made it super easy. We cannot emphasise how great it was. Thank you Troll for a perfect tour from beginning to end .

It was an awesome experience. We didn't have the best of luck with the snowy weather so we couldn't see a lot of the blue coloring of the ice cave. Our tour guide was awesome, gave us time to take photos and even helped us with lighting. It was impressive how he was able to navigate perfectly in the snowy condition. Definitely worth the trip.

I could not be more grateful to Troll Expeditions! I had booked a tour with another company who cancelled the tour last minute which was very confusing because the weather was just fine that day and I found Troll to be the cheapest company to go to crystal ice caves. I booked last minute, called to confirmed, and managed to be picked up and taken to the most beautiful place I have seen. The monster truck was bumpy but the drive kept us safe and told us everything about the glacier and how ice caves are formed. THANK YOU TROLL EXPEDITIONS FOR SAVING THE DAY!

Our group was small and we were picked up by a SuperJeep! Which is always amazing. our tour guide Vigfús was fantastic! He gave us plenty of time to take pics and even captured some great photos!! .We were also lucky to have a nice day :) I have the best memories of this tour and I will cherish them forever.

The tour itself and the guide where great! But too many groups in one cave and people climbing on ice bridges...

I was disapointed because i paid for a cristal ice cave and i didn't get to see it. Instead i saw a dark ice cave (but a small one) and a very very small and narrow blue ice cave. The instructors were super cool but i didn't see what i paid for. Bottom line: nothing against the guys that the company sent, but i didn't see what i paid.
