Explore the depths beneath one of Iceland’s glittering glaciers with this incredible ice caving tour, and discovering the fantastical interior that sits beneath the ice cap. This is an amazing opportunity for guests looking to experience the ice caves found on Iceland’s South Coast. 

Your tour will begin from the coastal village of Vík, itself located right beside the iconic black sand beach, Reynisfjara. You will board a super jeep (the only vehicle capable of traversing Iceland’s tricky terrain), taking off towards the nearby glacier tongue, Kötlujökull, itself a part of the much larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. 

Beneath this glacier sits the volcano, Katla, known to be one of the more active volcanoes in Iceland. Fear not, however; the chances of an eruption are minimal and, besides, the mountains would be evacuated long in advance of any volcanic activity. 

As you travel, you will be privy to a wealth of different landscapes; rugged coastlines, glittering ice caps, distant mountainscapes… the list goes on! Throughout your short journey, your highly-knowledgeable guide will make sure to teach you about the various sights, as well as telling you tales from Icelandic folklore.

Once you arrive at the ice cave, you will unload from the super jeep and equip yourself with a pair of crampons, a helmet and a headlamp—all you need to enter the ice cave! Stepping into this fantastical subterranean world, you will be immediately breathtaking by the thick, dripping tunnels, the wide range of blues, the sweeping crevasses, moulins and deep sinkhole. It is, in other words, out of this world. This is one place that you will not want to forget your camera! 

So don’t wait up any longer! Hurry and you too can secure your spot on this fantastic ice caving tour on Iceland’s picturesque South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.
