Take in the magic of a glacier in a unique and fascinating way with this tour that takes you into the belly of an ice giant. This trip is excellent for travelers who want to marvel over a glacier up close but with an extra special advantage: seeing it from inside.
Your adventure will begin at the meeting point in the town of Husafell, where you will meet your friendly guides. From here, you will be fitted with everything you need to make the trip safe and comfortable. You will then hop aboard a specially modified monster truck, perfectly equipped to handle the terrain ahead, and head towards the second-largest glacier in Iceland, Langjökull.
Along the way, you will be able to take in the sights of the Icelandic countryside, and before you get to your destination, you will make a stop at a waterfall called Hraunfossar. This waterfall’s name means ‘Lava Falls’ as the area around it was created from volcanic eruptions in the area millennia ago.
Your ride will continue from the foot of Langjökull to driving up onto the glacier. The added benefit of traveling this way is that you will have much more time to enjoy the views from the top. Once you have reached your stopping point, you will be able to look around and take in the stunning vistas, before witnessing the glacier from a different angle - the inside.
This part of the tour is unique and is the result of structural specialists carving a tunnel deep into the glacier - nowhere else in the world is such an experience possible for tourists. You will be taken deep within where your guide will fill you in on all you need to know about how glaciers are formed. The walls of the tunnel are made of thick ice, the blue colors of which are breathtaking, and there are several rooms and corridors (one of which is a chapel).
You will have plenty of time to explore and take photos before you are returned to the base camp to continue the rest of your day.
Don’t miss the chance to have one of the most unique glacier experiences possible when visiting Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
