Add an exciting twist to your winter holiday with this action-packed tour where you’ll jump aboard a super jeep to travel up Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, for a glacier hike followed by a visit to an authentic ice cave. Those looking for a unique and rare experience in Iceland need to look no further. 

A stop at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is a must when travelling the famed South Coast of Iceland. It is a stunning location where enormous icebergs which have fallen off the nearby Vatnajökull glacier, float on an aquamarine lagoon. It is here where you will meet your guides for today’s adventure. 

By the glacier lagoon, you will board a large vehicle known as a super jeep. These cars have been custom built to handle Iceland’s rough terrain. Your guide will take you up the slopes of Vatnajökull glacier, through a beautiful world of ice and snow. 

After some time in the super jeep, it is time to strap on crampons, leave the car behind and start the 1.5-hour glacier hike. You’ll be lead through the frosty wilderness of the glacier, past breathtaking ice formations and moulins while the guide tells you all about glaciers, from how they are formed to how they constantly change. Please note that the difficulty level for this tour is set to 'moderate' as the hike to and from the cave is quite long.

You will then reach the entrance to the ice cave, here you will be given plenty of time to explore and photograph this stunning natural feature. Inside the cave, you’ll find walls of sapphire blue filled with millions of tiny bubbles from air frozen inside the ice, and strange ice sculptures, formed by the changing of the seasons. 

Come along on this fantastic tour where you’ll ride a super jeep, hike up a glacier and explore inside a blue ice cave on top of Vatnajökull glacier. Book now to secure your spot on this great adventure. Check availability by choosing a date.

This tour was out of this world! Our guide was very informative and even did something special for my sisters birthday. It was a long hike but definitely worth it!

Absolutely wonderful experience! Our guide Steinþór was awesome!!! We were at first a bit worried about the length of the tour, but we were so happy in the end that we chose this one over the shorter ones because we had the ice caves all to ourselves and lots of time to take pictures. We could be more adventurous and fully enjoy the experience. This is a must-do if you’re visiting Iceland in the winter time. Thank you for the amazing time!
