Join this tour to experience the extraordinary beauty of an ice cave in winter. You'll explore hidden spaces on a glacier hike near Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. 

This is the highest rated ice cave tour in Iceland, so book now to secure your spot. Just choose the time which fits your schedule and make your way to Jökulsárlón Café, beside the famous glacier lagoon in Southeast Iceland. You can make a day of it, and enjoy the glacier lagoon area, taking pictures of the floating icebergs. Reserve early as this tour is very popular and is likely to sell out.

At the start of the tour, you will drive with your group to the cave which has been specially chosen for its dazzling structure. The drive itself is exciting, as you will be traveling in a modified monster truck.

When you get there, you'll have a short walk through the landscape to the cave where you can learn about the mighty Vatnajokull glacier from your knowledgeable guide. Thick socks and warm layers will come in handy today.

Ice caves are rare phenomena that form naturally. The ice caves are a long time in the making. Each fall, after the meltwater of spring has begun to freeze, local guides from the area hunt for new ice caves. This is why the location of the caves change every year and every ice cave is unique and newly formed. 

The structure and condition of the caves can vary greatly each year. Our guide decides which cave to visit every day depending on safety and weather conditions. 

There is extremely limited availability for this popular tour. Reserve now you if you want to see this incredible natural attraction. Check availability now by choosing a date.
