Explore one of Iceland's most amazing attractions with this exciting adventure into a spectacular ice cave in Vatnajokull National Park. Travelers looking to discover a natural wonder unlike anything else on earth should not hesitate to book this tour, which is available year-round.

Your trip begins at another one of Iceland’s most incredible destinations, the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, a vast lake filled with icebergs. From the glacier lagoon car park, you will be picked up by an expert guide in a super jeep. Your destination is Breidamerkurjokull glacier, one of the tongues of the mighty Vatnajokull glacier, the largest one in Europe.

The monster truck ride from the glacier lagoon into the rugged nature of Vatnajokull National Park takes about 30 minutes. Reaching the ice cave is a comfortable half-hour walk, but along a flat gravel surface, making it easy to access. This short hike allows you to fully escape all signs of civilization and immerse yourself in incredible landscapes. You’ll be dressed in the necessary safety gear, before being led into this mystical new world.

Ice caves are incredibly rare phenomena that require very specific conditions to form and this particular ice cave is one of the very few that can be visited any time of year. If you've never stepped inside of an ice cave, it's an unforgettable experience and with its sparkling blue color, you are sure to capture some great photos. The diverse shades and the way the light interacts with the ice provide an air of the fantastical.

After about 40 minutes of exploring one of Iceland’s most sought-after attractions, you’ll return to the super jeep and take the beautiful ride back to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon.

Make sure not to miss a trip inside a vast blue ice cave during your holiday to Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
