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 crampons, ice ax, and helmet and give you a safety orientation.

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

You will get enough time to get the photos you need in the cave, 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 surface of the glacier itself and start your hike. Your guide will take you on a spectacular walk through a wonderland of frozen landscapes, seemingly bottomless crevasses, ice formations, and brilliant blue colors. During the experience, they can also educate you on the behavior of glaciers and how they affect the surrounding nature.

Once you are complete, you will return to the visitor center at Skaftafell, where you'll bid farewell to Vatnajokull and continue with our holiday.

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