Get ready for an icy adventure with this ultimate winter combination. On this affordable tour, you get to explore a naturally formed ice cave and go on a glacier walk on an outlet glacier of the mighty Vatnajökull glacier. Those visiting the area and are looking to spice up their holiday should book this excursion now.

Your adventure begins in Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park where you will check in at the sales desk, meet your guide and get geared up with proper glacier equipment for your tour. Your guide will teach you how to use the glacier gear and give you a safety orientation.

Then it's time to visit the ice cave. Water running under the glacier formed the cave that you will visit. In the winter, the water freezes over and leaves behind a glacier tunnel of deep blue ice. The cave has been made accessible by the highly trained and qualified glacier guides, and they will ensure your safety and enjoyment during your tour.

In the cave, you will get enough time to get the photos you need, and your guide will be most happy to take your picture. During the stop, they will also tell you more about the formations of these ice tunnels.

After exploring the ice cave, it's time to step onto the ice and start your hike. Your guide will take you on a glacier walk through a wonderland of a frozen world of seemingly bottomless crevasses, ice formations and brilliant blue colours. 

During the hike, your guide will educate you about the behaviour of glaciers and how they affect the surrounding nature. After your hike, you will return back to the visitor centre at Skaftafell where you'll bid farewell to your glacier and continue with our holiday.

Don't miss out on this two-for-one winter opportunity on top of an authentic glacier. Check availability by choosing a date.
