Join this brilliant "Fast Track" Ice Cave tour; hands down the fastest way to experience the joys of ice caving in Iceland. This is the perfect tour opportunity for those travellers a little pressed for time, but still hoping to fit a spot of ice caving into their schedule.  

This tour will begin from the meeting point in the village of Vík, from where you will embark on a beautiful and exciting Super Jeep ride to one of thirteen glaciers in Iceland, taking no more than an hour's travel. Throughout your transfer to the ice cave, you will be privy to a wealth of gorgeous scenery, ranging from distant mountainscapes to the rugged coastlines of the South Coast. 

Once at the glacier area, you will borrow gear (i.e. helmet, headlamp, and crampons, etc.) and listen as your local guide provides an educational brief on safety and what to expect in the ice cave.   You’ll then take a super fun walk to the glacier ice cave (5-10 minutes) and go inside to explore it.

Inside of the ice cave, you will have your mind blown by the stunning shades of blue. Skidding, scooting and shuffling your way through this fantastical, subterranean world, you'll pass intricate, naturally-formed ice sculptures and glittering tunnels, proving once and for all that ice caving takes any holiday experience to the next level. 

You will have a total of 45-60 minutes in the glacier area for photos and exploration.  Your local guide will give you a little more insight into how the ice cave was formed and answer any questions you may have.  

After ample time for your photos and selfies, you'll hike back out and take the gear off.  Then it’s time to get you back to the village of Vík so you can continue on with your own agenda of discovering Iceland!
