Book this tour today to enjoy the well-loved South Coast with a twist of adventure as your destination is an impressive glacial ice cave. This excursion is perfect for those who prefer sightseeing in small groups, for a more intimate and informed once in a lifetime experience.

Look forward to boarding a minibus to set off on the famous Highway 1 guided by a wizened expert ready to point out all the wonders on the way to the ice cave. As this is a popular route, the sequence of attractions has been carefully considered to ensure you avoid the crowds.

You can expect stunning waterfalls, pouring over the cliffs of Iceland's dramatic interior which faces the strong waves of the powerful Atlantic ocean beating the black coast. Two of the most remarkable waterfalls to be appreciated are Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss which both fall from a height of around 60 metres but there the similarities end. 

You will be able to experience one of the most beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world, Reynisfjara beach, recognisable for its black pebbles, basalt columns and the dramatic Reynisdrangar sea stacks.

Close to the beach is the village of Vík, and from there, you'll travel through a dirt track to a spectacular ice cave. Nothing compares to the opportunity to enter an ice cave, rendered ethereal and electric blue and black by mother nature and thousands of years. 

The ice cave you will visit is called the Katla Ice Cave, and it is found within Kötlujökull glacier which is an offshoot of the massive Mýrdalsjökull. No ice cave is ever the same, and they can change daily delivering a genuinely unique experience. 

Prepare for the wonder of the South Coast capped with the enchantment of venturing inside an ever-changing ice cave. Check availability by choosing a date.
