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 tour is excellent for travellers who want to see 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. This vehicle is perfectly equipped to the terrain ahead. You will head towards the second-largest glacier in Iceland, Langjökull Glacier. Along the way, you will be able to take in the sights of the Icelandic countryside. The vehicle you travel in is incredibly comfortable. Before you get to your destination, you will make a stop at a waterfall called Hraunfossar. This waterfall’s name means ‘Lava Falls’ and 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 travelling 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. The views from the top of Langjökull are spectacular. You will then take a trip to see the glacier from a different angle; from the inside. This part of the tour is unique and is the result of structural specialists carving a tunnel deep into the glacier. You will be taken inside 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 glacial ice. Walking through the tunnel, you will get a great idea of the density and structure of the ice as well as the great blues and whites that make up the colour palette here. You will have plenty of time to explore and take photos before you are returned to the base camp. Don’t miss the chance to have one of the most unique glacier experiences possible when visiting Iceland. Pick a date to check availability.
