Experience the wonders of an Icelandic glacier in a way you never thought you could with this day tour taking you into the depths of these ice giants. This tour is perfect for those who want to see a glacier but get an in-depth perspective of one, from inside.

Your adventure with you being picked up in Reykjavik in a comfortable coach. You will make your way out of the city towards the base camp where you will be given a full safety briefing by your experienced guides. You will be fitted with all the equipment you need to give you comfort throughout your exploration. 

You will then board a specially modified monster truck and head off to seek out the icy sheets that await you. You will be heading to Langjökull Glacier, the second-largest glacier in Iceland.

The drive to Langjökull Glacier is very scenic and on the way, you will make a stop by Hraunfossar waterfall. “Hraun” in Icelandic means lava and the lava at Hraunfossar waterfalls actually came from one of Langjökull Glacier’s volcanic eruptions long ago. 

The specially modified vehicle you will travel in is perfectly equipped to handle the trip up to the glacier, giving you more time to enjoy the experience. Once you are on top of Langjökull you will have plenty of time to take in the stunning views. Nothing can compare to the feeling of standing on top of a glacier. The 360-degree-views are incredible, you will be able to see the landscapes for large distances as you stand on the thick ice that is constantly moving and changing the environment around it.

The excitement doesn’t stop there, you will also get to see the glacier from a completely different perspective by going deep inside it. This is an incredibly unique part of this tour. Specialists have been able to carve a structurally safe tunnel that goes into the glacier. 

Your guide will take you inside and along the way, you will be able to learn even more about how glaciers are formed while getting a first-hand look at the solid ice they’re made of. The walls of the tunnel tell a story of the movements of the glacier over centuries to become what they are today. You will have plenty of time to explore and get those important photos before making your way back to Reykjavik.

Don’t miss the chance to have one of the most unique glacier experiences possible when visiting Iceland. Pick a date to check availability.
