Experience a dreamlike adventure during this 2.5 to three hour tour through an ice cave under the Vatnajokull glacier from the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. This tour is for those wishing to capture the beautiful nature of glacier caves, a one-of-a-kind winter attraction in Iceland.

Your breathtaking ice-caving excursion begins when you meet your certified glacier tour guide at the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Then it's time to ride in a 4x4 truck until you're close enough to the glacier. 

The first part of the drive takes you along the Ring Road, Iceland's main driving route. Keep your camera handy, as every part of the road's scenery is beautiful and photo-worthy.

Next, your driver will take you onto a rocky road only suitable for large trucks. Once you're close enough to the Vatnajokull glacier, you'll depart your modified Land Rover Defender truck and walk the remaining distance to the entrance of the ice cave.

The terrain is uneven, so wear a pair of sturdy hiking boots and warm, waterproof clothes for comfort and safety.

The Vatnajokull glacier is the main focus of Vatnajokull National Park. It's the largest glacier in Europe, covering about eight percent of Iceland's land mass. The ice cave visited is on the Breidamerkurjokull glacier, an outlet glacier of Vatnajokull.

With each passing year, this wonderous ice-cave changes. So, never will it look the same, meaning every visit is unique and special. This striking natural wonder possesses a blue crystal-like radiance that makes even amateur photographs look incredible.

You'll have plenty of time inside the Sapphire ice cave to take pictures of the shimmering aquamarine interior and explore to your heart's content. Your certified glacier tour guide will share insights about glaciers and ice caves in Iceland. With its open space and light filtering in, there are countless opportunities to take phenomenal pictures for unbelievable memories of the ice cave.

Once you've captured plenty of captivating pictures of this glittering crystal-blue ice cave, you'll return to your vehicle. From here, your driver will take you back to the meetup point at Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. 

This ice-caving adventure is a small-group experience for up to six people. You can expect to spend around 30 minutes in the cave, depending on the conditions. 

Don't miss the chance to witness the wondrous radiance of the ever-changing ice caves in Iceland with this 2.5 to three hour ice-caving tour from the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Check availability now by choosing a date.
