Ice Cave Exploration | Travel Underneath Europe's Largest Glacier
Witness the greatest winter wonder this country has to offer and explore the crystal blue ice caves beneath Vatnajökull glacier. This tour should not be missed by anyone who can make their way to south-east Iceland; it is a once-in-a-lifetime trip that should appeal to all who are steady on their feet on unstable terrain. This tour begins when you meet your guides and group at the carpark of the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. You will want to arrive here a few hours earlier, or set aside a few hours after, as this is truly one of Iceland’s most beautiful gems. Here, you can watch icebergs break from a glacier tongue and cruise across the country’s deepest lake, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and admire them where they wash up on the shore at the adjacent Diamond Beach. Once your group is gathered, you will board a Super Jeep capable of easily reaching the glacier cave, and drive across the beautiful landscape of Vatnajökull National Park. Vatnajökull is Europe’s largest glacier, and the opportunity to travel underneath it is only possible for a few months in midwinter. As soon as you reach the mouth of your ice cave, your guide will gear you up in a helmet and crampons. The former should not be necessary, as the cave stability is checked daily, but the latter will greatly aid you on the slippery ground. As soon as you enter, you will be mesmerised. It seems impossible that nature could create blues so intense, textures so smooth, and ice formations so unusual. You will have up to an hour to wander around the halls and chambers, taking photographs and marvelling at such a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Your guide will tell you all about how the caves form, the history and the future of the glaciers, and answer any questions you might have.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber
Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity. This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself. Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes. During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural. It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph. Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space. After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world.

Ice Cave Day Tour with Flights from Reykjavik
Hop on a plane for a scenic flight over the South Coast of Iceland and then explore a natural ice cave. This tour is for everyone who wants to see something truly rare: the world inside a glacier. Every year, stunning ice caves are formed by running water from Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. Each cave collapses during summertime and gets filled with water, and each winter new ones form. Therefore, every single cave is unique, and you won't have the same experience twice when you go to see a natural glacier cave. Vatnajökull is situated in the south-east of Iceland, about a 6-hour drive one-way from Reykjavík. To drive there and back, you would thus need at least 2 days. Flying, however, gives you the chance to visit the ice caves, the nearby glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón and the Diamond Beach all at once, without rush. The flight departs from Reykjavík airport at 8:55 AM, and in just 50 minutes, you will have reached Höfn in East Iceland. Your return flight to Reykjavík is at 6:55 PM. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is right by the glacier and connected to the sea. In it, you will see majestic icebergs afloat, and you may even spot some seals relaxing on the ice. Where the lagoon meets the sea, there's a Diamond Beach, named for the glistening ice scattered along it. The flight itself will be in a small plane and will provide spectacular aerial views of the Icelandic coastline. On a clear day, you'll get a great view of Vatnajökull glacier itself, giving you an idea of its immense size. The ice caves should not be missed if you are here during winter and if you're pressed for time, this is the perfect tour for you. As soon as you reserve it, we will contact you to send you your flight tickets and provide you with all the necessary information. Come aboard for the experience of a lifetime.

Between Continents | Reykjanes peninsula and The LAVA Tunnel
Reykjanes peninsula is more than the home to the Blue Lagoon and KEF airport. It is a spectacular area and a part of the UNESCO Global Geopark. There are some incredible geological locations in this area, with endless lava fields, volcanoes, bubbling mud and hot springs and lava tunnels. For the highlight of the trip, we would join The Lava Tunnel Guides for a tour through the spectacular inner workings of the Leitarhraun eruption since 5,200 years ago. Starting the day in Reykjavík, we commence the Reykjanes adventure, visiting the residence of Iceland's president at Bessastaðir, where the president has resided since 1941, on our way out of the city. We make our way to the country's south-westernmost point where the oldest lighthouse in Iceland proudly stands by high sea cliffs with vivid birdlife during the summer months. Reykjanes lighthouse has held its ground since 1878. However, nearly destroyed by an earthquake in 1905 it was rebuilt in the years between 1907-1908 and has remained little changed ever since then, safely guiding the way for sailors from afar into harbour nearby. From here we visit the Bridge Between Continents where a footbridge links between the fissure between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates giving you a chance to literally walk between two continents. Before leaving the south-westernmost point of Iceland, we make a visit to Gunnuhver. Gunnuhver is a highly active geothermal area with large steam vents and bubbling mud baths scattered about in the most beautiful geothermal colours. Then we visit the small fishing village of Grindavík for lunch in one of the local cafés serving one of the best lobster soup and other Icelandic delicacies around. After lunch, the exploring continues as we make our way to Lake Kleifarvatn surrounded by vast moss-covered lava fields and black volcanic shores. Nearby the lake is Krýsuvík and Seltún geothermal area displaying a Mars-like landscape with steam vents and bubbling mud pots. Then it's on to the real highlight of the tour. We visit the LAVA Tunnel, locally known as Raufarhólshellir, where we witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption. The Lava tunnel has recently been opened after doing extensive work putting lighting, boardwalk and generally making it more accessible. We'll be walking the same path as the lava flowed in the Leitarhraun eruption that took place 5,200 years ago. The colours and textures of the scorched earth within the LAVA tunnel are really amazing. Our Reykjanes peninsula and LAVA Tunnel tour ventures between continents and through unique and spectacular geothermal landscapes, giving you the perfect introduction to Iceland's volcanic and geothermal history.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber
Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity. This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself. Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes. During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural. It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph. Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space. After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. Check availability by choosing a date.

Ice Cave Day Tour with Flights from Reykjavik
Hop on a plane for a scenic flight over the South Coast of Iceland and then explore a natural ice cave. This tour is for everyone who wants to see something truly rare: the world inside a glacier. Every year, stunning ice caves are formed by running water from Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. Each cave collapses during summertime and gets filled with water, and each winter new ones form. Therefore, every single cave is unique, and you won't have the same experience twice when you go to see a natural glacier cave. Vatnajökull is situated in the south-east of Iceland, about a 6-hour drive one-way from Reykjavík. To drive there and back, you would thus need at least 2 days. Flying, however, gives you the chance to visit the ice caves, the nearby glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón and the Diamond Beach all at once, without rush. The flight departs from Reykjavík airport at 8:55 AM, and in just 50 minutes, you will have reached Höfn in East Iceland. Your return flight to Reykjavík is at 6:55 PM. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is right by the glacier and connected to the sea. In it, you will see majestic icebergs afloat, and you may even spot some seals relaxing on the ice. Where the lagoon meets the sea, there's a Diamond Beach, named for the glistening ice scattered along it. The flight itself will be in a small plane and will provide spectacular aerial views of the Icelandic coastline. On a clear day, you'll get a great view of Vatnajökull glacier itself, giving you an idea of its immense size. The ice caves should not be missed if you are here during winter and if you're pressed for time, this is the perfect tour for you. As soon as you reserve it, we will contact you to send you your flight tickets and provide you with all the necessary information. Come aboard for the experience of a lifetime.

Between Continents | Reykjanes peninsula and The LAVA Tunnel
Reykjanes peninsula is more than the home to the Blue Lagoon and KEF airport. It is a spectacular area and a part of the UNESCO Global Geopark. There are some incredible geological locations in this area, with endless lava fields, volcanoes, bubbling mud and hot springs and lava tunnels. For the highlight of the trip, we would join The Lava Tunnel Guides for a tour through the spectacular inner workings of the Leitarhraun eruption since 5,200 years ago. Starting the day in Reykjavík, we commence the Reykjanes adventure, visiting the residence of Iceland's president at Bessastaðir, where the president has resided since 1941, on our way out of the city. We make our way to the country's south-westernmost point where the oldest lighthouse in Iceland proudly stands by high sea cliffs with vivid birdlife during the summer months. Reykjanes lighthouse has held its ground since 1878. However, nearly destroyed by an earthquake in 1905 it was rebuilt in the years between 1907-1908 and has remained little changed ever since then, safely guiding the way for sailors from afar into harbour nearby. From here we visit the Bridge Between Continents where a footbridge links between the fissure between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates giving you a chance to literally walk between two continents. Before leaving the south-westernmost point of Iceland, we make a visit to Gunnuhver. Gunnuhver is a highly active geothermal area with large steam vents and bubbling mud baths scattered about in the most beautiful geothermal colours. Then we visit the small fishing village of Grindavík for lunch in one of the local cafés serving one of the best lobster soup and other Icelandic delicacies around. After lunch, the exploring continues as we make our way to Lake Kleifarvatn surrounded by vast moss-covered lava fields and black volcanic shores. Nearby the lake is Krýsuvík and Seltún geothermal area displaying a Mars-like landscape with steam vents and bubbling mud pots. Then it's on to the real highlight of the tour. We visit the LAVA Tunnel, locally known as Raufarhólshellir, where we witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption. The Lava tunnel has recently been opened after doing extensive work putting lighting, boardwalk and generally making it more accessible. We'll be walking the same path as the lava flowed in the Leitarhraun eruption that took place 5,200 years ago. The colours and textures of the scorched earth within the LAVA tunnel are really amazing. Our Reykjanes peninsula and LAVA Tunnel tour ventures between continents and through unique and spectacular geothermal landscapes, giving you the perfect introduction to Iceland's volcanic and geothermal history.

Ice Cave Exploration | Travel Underneath Europe's Largest Glacier
Witness the greatest winter wonder this country has to offer and explore the crystal blue ice caves beneath Vatnajökull glacier. This tour should not be missed by anyone who can make their way to south-east Iceland; it is a once-in-a-lifetime trip that should appeal to all who are steady on their feet on unstable terrain. This tour begins when you meet your guides and group at the carpark of the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. You will want to arrive here a few hours earlier, or set aside a few hours after, as this is truly one of Iceland’s most beautiful gems. Here, you can watch icebergs break from a glacier tongue and cruise across the country’s deepest lake, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and admire them where they wash up on the shore at the adjacent Diamond Beach. Once your group is gathered, you will board a Super Jeep capable of easily reaching the glacier cave, and drive across the beautiful landscape of Vatnajökull National Park. Vatnajökull is Europe’s largest glacier, and the opportunity to travel underneath it is only possible for a few months in midwinter. As soon as you reach the mouth of your ice cave, your guide will gear you up in a helmet and crampons. The former should not be necessary, as the cave stability is checked daily, but the latter will greatly aid you on the slippery ground. As soon as you enter, you will be mesmerised. It seems impossible that nature could create blues so intense, textures so smooth, and ice formations so unusual. You will have up to an hour to wander around the halls and chambers, taking photographs and marvelling at such a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Your guide will tell you all about how the caves form, the history and the future of the glaciers, and answer any questions you might have.

Then it is time for the highlight of the tour, as you will board a super jeep and head for the entrance of a natural ice cave. These caves are a unique privilege to visit, as they are hunted down by experts each fall and will fill back up with meltwater come spring. Since this tour operates during the winter season, each night will conclude with the possibility of the Northern Lights dancing in the night sky. If you want to enjoy the Icelandic nature to its fullest and witness one of Iceland's most incredible natural phenomenon, then you should book this tour now. Check availability by choosing a date.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber
Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity. This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself. Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes. During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural. It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph. Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space. After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. Check availability by choosing a date.

This is a unique geothermal spot and you will be amazed by the active vents pouring huge steam clouds into the sky. You will also stop at the Hraunfossar lava waterfalls, a rare natural phenomenon. This series of falls comes directly from the rivers within Hallmundarhraun, an area consisting of dried lava that originated from one of the volcanoes beneath the incredible Langjökull glacier. The falls are an amazing sight to behold, and your guide will be quick to inform you that the water cascading here originally came from cool underground springs. After a short break at Húsafell, you will head to your main destination, Víðgelmir lava cave. The cave is 148,000 square metres and is famous for eerie, subterranean beauty. Deep inside, you will find lava stalagmites and stalactites, intricate ice formations and multi-coloured rock faces.

Ice Cave Day Tour with Flights from Reykjavik
Hop on a plane for a scenic flight over the South Coast of Iceland and then explore a natural ice cave. This tour is for everyone who wants to see something truly rare: the world inside a glacier. Every year, stunning ice caves are formed by running water from Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. Each cave collapses during summertime and gets filled with water, and each winter new ones form. Therefore, every single cave is unique, and you won't have the same experience twice when you go to see a natural glacier cave. Vatnajökull is situated in the south-east of Iceland, about a 6-hour drive one-way from Reykjavík. To drive there and back, you would thus need at least 2 days. Flying, however, gives you the chance to visit the ice caves, the nearby glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón and the Diamond Beach all at once, without rush. The flight departs from Reykjavík airport at 8:55 AM, and in just 50 minutes, you will have reached Höfn in East Iceland. Your return flight to Reykjavík is at 6:55 PM. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is right by the glacier and connected to the sea. In it, you will see majestic icebergs afloat, and you may even spot some seals relaxing on the ice. Where the lagoon meets the sea, there's a Diamond Beach, named for the glistening ice scattered along it. The flight itself will be in a small plane and will provide spectacular aerial views of the Icelandic coastline. On a clear day, you'll get a great view of Vatnajökull glacier itself, giving you an idea of its immense size. The ice caves should not be missed if you are here during winter and if you're pressed for time, this is the perfect tour for you. As soon as you reserve it, we will contact you to send you your flight tickets and provide you with all the necessary information. Come aboard for the experience of a lifetime.

Between Continents | Reykjanes peninsula and The LAVA Tunnel
Reykjanes peninsula is more than the home to the Blue Lagoon and KEF airport. It is a spectacular area and a part of the UNESCO Global Geopark. There are some incredible geological locations in this area, with endless lava fields, volcanoes, bubbling mud and hot springs and lava tunnels. For the highlight of the trip, we would join The Lava Tunnel Guides for a tour through the spectacular inner workings of the Leitarhraun eruption since 5,200 years ago. Starting the day in Reykjavík, we commence the Reykjanes adventure, visiting the residence of Iceland's president at Bessastaðir, where the president has resided since 1941, on our way out of the city. We make our way to the country's south-westernmost point where the oldest lighthouse in Iceland proudly stands by high sea cliffs with vivid birdlife during the summer months. Reykjanes lighthouse has held its ground since 1878. However, nearly destroyed by an earthquake in 1905 it was rebuilt in the years between 1907-1908 and has remained little changed ever since then, safely guiding the way for sailors from afar into harbour nearby. From here we visit the Bridge Between Continents where a footbridge links between the fissure between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates giving you a chance to literally walk between two continents. Before leaving the south-westernmost point of Iceland, we make a visit to Gunnuhver. Gunnuhver is a highly active geothermal area with large steam vents and bubbling mud baths scattered about in the most beautiful geothermal colours. Then we visit the small fishing village of Grindavík for lunch in one of the local cafés serving one of the best lobster soup and other Icelandic delicacies around. After lunch, the exploring continues as we make our way to Lake Kleifarvatn surrounded by vast moss-covered lava fields and black volcanic shores. Nearby the lake is Krýsuvík and Seltún geothermal area displaying a Mars-like landscape with steam vents and bubbling mud pots. Then it's on to the real highlight of the tour. We visit the LAVA Tunnel, locally known as Raufarhólshellir, where we witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption. The Lava tunnel has recently been opened after doing extensive work putting lighting, boardwalk and generally making it more accessible. We'll be walking the same path as the lava flowed in the Leitarhraun eruption that took place 5,200 years ago. The colours and textures of the scorched earth within the LAVA tunnel are really amazing. Our Reykjanes peninsula and LAVA Tunnel tour ventures between continents and through unique and spectacular geothermal landscapes, giving you the perfect introduction to Iceland's volcanic and geothermal history.
