Hop aboard this super-jeep tour to the incredible tunnels carved into Langjökull glacier. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the inside of an ice-cap, and should not be missed by anyone seeking a unique and fascinating experience that can only be found in Iceland.

You will be picked up from your Reykjavík guesthouse or hotel in the morning in a bus, and take a scenic drive over to Langjökull. You will journey through Húsafell, to admire the geothermal beauty of the area, with its many hot springs, glacial rivers, and dramatic ravines, and make a stop at the beautiful Hraunfossar waterfall. 

Once you are close to the glacier, you will leave the bus that picked you up and hop into a massive super-jeep, perfectly designed for driving the steep, icy slopes of the glacier. This vehicle will take you all the way up to the opening of the ice tunnels. 

As soon as you enter the world inside the ancient glacier, you will be mesmerised by its beauty. The translucent white and blue walls that surround you are marvellous to behold, as are the many chambers created for your admiration. A journey such as this can usually only be taken by scientists and glacier experts, making the experience even more exciting.

There are several hundred metres of tunnels to explore within Langjökull. As you travel, your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about Iceland’s glaciers, how they formed, and the threats they face. With these threats ever-increasing, you will no doubt be incredibly grateful that you could take this opportunity while it still exists.

After this awe-inspiring excursion, you will return to the Super Jeep. This will take you on the bumpy but beautiful drive down the glacier, back to your bus so that you can make the return journey back to Reykjavík.

Regardless of whether it is summer or winter, your camera will no doubt be packed full of photos, and your head swimming with the memories of this unique and incredible tour.

Don’t miss your opportunity to explore the insides of a fascinating glacier. This tour truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Check availability by choosing a date.

This was a great trip. There was a definite response of surprise when we learned that it would take at least 2.5 hours to reach the entrance but the drive was worth it. Our guide, Juli, was amazing. Highly recommend this trip by Reykjavík Excursions but be prepared to be gone from 8:30 to 19:30

Great trip to visit the glacier! It was unforgetable expreience. Just the super jeep was too crowded, did not feel comfortable taking the ride.

Great guides, loved seeing Langjokull from that beast of a vehicle. While we were driving up to the tunnel, there were snowmobiles along the way, made me want to book a snowmobile tour if I ever get the chance. Thor the guide was great, full of interesting facts and funny. Left everyone amazed with his singing skills. Although we originally wanted to do an ice cave tour in the south, this one was a decent replacement, would definitely recommend if you want to experience Iceland's glaciers first-hand and learn more about them.
