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.After a thorough exploration of the ice cave, you will emerge back into the open air, and be taken back to Jökulsárlón.Do not miss your chance to see Iceland’s most rare and unique feature.
