On the day tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, you will see majestic waterfalls, stretches of dark lava fields and a mighty glacier.  During the 3-day tour to the south coast, you will be staying in country hotels along the trip for 2 nights, which are included in the price.

Into the Glacier Tour - Starting from Langjökull

Witness the magical world inside of a glacier on this once-in-a-lifetime journey. Recently opened tunnels, carved into the most stable part of Europe’s second largest glacier, Langjökull, make this unbelievable opportunity possible. You will meet your group and guide at Húsafell, or a point closer to the glacier if you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle and are visiting in summer. Once gathered, you will get into an impressive, all-terrain, eight-wheel-drive monster truck, and head up the slopes of Langjökull glacier, over an ethereal world of ice and snow. The passing scenery on this drive is magnificent, so keep your camera close at hand. The landscapes unfolding beneath you stunning, and the endless surface of the glacier so barren and beautiful that it seems otherworldly. You will reach the entrance to the ice tunnels. So put your crampons on and head into the blue and white world inside the icecap. For an hour, you will follow your experienced guide as they tell you all about Iceland’s glaciers, how they are changing and how these incredible tunnels were created. Iceland is the only place in the world where such impressive passages into the ice have been built for the purpose of welcoming visitors. While natural ice caves do form on the lower parts of other glaciers during winter, they are notoriously unreliable due to flooding, and often too unstable to enter. Conversely, the ice tunnel in Langjökull is open year-round, and accessible in all but the most tumultuous of weather conditions.  The tunnel is well lit throughout, and the ground is relatively even, so this tour is more than doable for anyone comfortable on their feet for an hour or so. Whether young or old, fit or unfit, the Langjökull ice tunnel is sure to blow you away. Once you have enjoyed the incredible beauty here, you will jump back in your vehicle for a return journey to Húsafell center. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Buckle up for a fascinating and magnificent ice-tunnel experience. Check availability by choosing a date.

Ice Cave Adventure | Blue Ice Caving from Jokulsarlon

Come along on an adventurous trip, off the beaten path, to experience the forces of Icelandic nature. This tour is for anyone who would like to explore the little-seen phenomenon of a naturally formed ice cave or anyone who wants to feel the frosty air on their cheeks as they enjoy the wilderness of Iceland. The tour departs from the famous glacier lagoon every day at 9 AM and 2 PM, driving approximately 30 minutes off-road to Iceland’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. You'll see the best of Iceland on the scenic drive through the Highlands and, once you get yourself to Jökulsárlón on the South Coast, your guides will take care of the driving. After a short hike through Vatnajökull National Park from the parking area to the cave, your guides will provide you with the right equipment and take you into the magical blue caves. Your guides are professional, experienced and know the caves inside out, so you are in safe hands. The search for the ice caves each year is an odyssey in itself. It begins in the summer when huge quantities of water have melted from the glacier, running underneath it and forming the shapes of the walls and roof. When the weather turns cold again, these places freeze, and pure glacial water continues to pour down. Eventually, what's left behind is a cavern of wonders, always unique and unexpected, carefully examined by the guides so that it is safe to enter. Don't miss your chance to see this! You'll have 45 minutes or so inside the cave to take pictures, admire the deep blue ice and investigate the ice formations in the cave before you jump into a Super Jeep and return to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The ice caves are a rare and hugely popular part of winter in Iceland, so reserve your spot now as to not miss out. Check availability by choosing a date.

One Day South Coast and Katla Ice Cave Tour from Reykjavik

Explore the magical world of an ice cave on this once-in-a-lifetime excursion. Starting in the capital city, this tour takes you to the glacier Mýrdalsjökull, which sits over one of the largest and most infamous volcanoes in Iceland, Katla. You will be picked up in Reykjavík in the morning and whisked away to the South Coast of Iceland. You’ll travel in a small vehicle which means that this tour will always be comfortable and personalized, and you won’t be overwhelmed by other guests. The drive to Katla takes a few hours but goes along Iceland's very scenic South Coast. This region is famed for its rolling countryside, volcanic peaks, black sand coastline, and iconic waterfalls. After a couple of quick stop in the little towns of Hvolsvöllur and Vík, you will head on towards Mýrdalsjökull for your ice caving experience. The vehicle you will take to the glacier is an excellent super jeep, perfect for the icy, gravel tracks that lead to the cave. Please note that we are the only local ice cave tour operator based in Vík. Once you reach Mýrdalsjökull, you put your helmet on, strap crampons over your boots, and head over to the ice caves and our plan is always to visit 2 ice caves on this tour. These incredible formations are created by both running meltwater which carves a channel through the glacier, as well as geothermal heat beneath the ice which opens a path into it. Ice caves are renowned for their unreal beauty and rarity, so the opportunity to explore one is incredible. The contrast of the surrounding black lava and ash frozen in the glacier, against the blue and white ice, is breathtaking and will provide some incredible photo opportunities. Once you have explored the cave and hiked on the glacier enough to fully appreciate its beauty, you will board the vehicle again and make your way to Reykjavík. However, the adventure is not over as you will stop at two incredible waterfalls on your way back. First, you’ll check out the thundering Skógafoss waterfall where you can marvel at the power of this towering waterfall and learn all about the legend of the secret treasure that it hides. Then it is time to visit Seljalandsfoss, a stunning waterfall, plummeting off a concave cliff into a little stream that runs through grassy fields. There is a path that takes you all the way around the falling water, for some incredible, unique views. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to see Mýrdalsjökull glacier, Katla volcano, and the stunning ice caves. Hop on board for the adventure of a lifetime. Check availability by choosing a date.

Into the Glacier with Lava Caving

Immerse yourself in the world beneath the surface of Iceland’s incredible landscapes on this combo tour that takes you inside a glacier and into a lava tube. This tour is a must for the adventurous, and those seeking to make the most of the unusual and fascinating experiences Iceland has to offer. You will be picked up from Reykjavík in the morning, in a bus equipped with an ‘In-Bus Audio Guide’; this will allow you to listen to commentary about your surroundings in 10 different languages. The bus also has wifi and USB chargers, as well as an onboard guide who is happy to answer your questions. This vehicle will drive you through the beautiful landscapes of West Iceland, to the foot of the mighty Langjökull glacier. Here, you will switch into a specially modified super-jeep, perfectly designed for ascending the steep, icy slopes. As you travel to the mouth of the tunnels, the Icelandic Highlands will unfold around you, so keep your camera in your hand for these awe-inspiring landscapes. The ice-tunnels into Langjökull are incredibly unique; they were carved by hand and machine into the sturdiest part of the glacier, meaning that they are accessible all year and safe to enter. Nowhere else in the world can you take a similar tour, making this a truly once-in-a-lifetime excursion. For an hour, you will be guided through the stunning blue channels. An experienced English-speaking guide will lead you throughout, telling you all about how the glaciers formed, the science behind them, and what future they face. The path is well-lit and open, and the ground is smooth, making for a journey that is as comfortable as it is fascinating. After exploring the ice-tunnels, the super-jeep will take you back to base-camp, where your old bus is waiting. From here, it will take you to the lava cave Viðgelmir. Viðgelmir, formed in an eruption in the 10th Century, is the largest of its kind in Iceland, at 1600 metres long, and (at its most open) over 15 metres high and 16 metres wide. You will be provided with a helmet and light before entering the lava-tube. Because it is so open, Viðgelmir is easier to traverse than other lava caves (although you can still expect uneven ground beneath your feet). Your guide will take you through at a comfortable pace, telling you about the cave’s formation and fascinating history; they will also draw your attention to the cave’s most amazing features, such as its vivid colouration, its stalactites and its stalagmites. After a thorough exploration, you will get back on the bus and be whisked to Reykjavík for an evening return. Immerse yourself in the hidden worlds of Iceland’s glaciers and lava caves.

West Iceland & Langjokull Ice Tunnel | Day Tour

See the sites of West Iceland and explore the world’s only publicly accessible ice tunnel, carved into Langjökull glacier. This tour is a great combination of sightseeing and adventure. You’ll be picked up from Reykjavík first thing in the morning, and set out on your exploration of Iceland’s west. Your exact itinerary will be decided on the weather and conditions of the day but should include at least the sites mentioned below. You might start by heading north, to see the waterfalls of Barnafoss and Hraunfossar. In spite of the fact that you can walk between them in mere minutes, they are vastly different. Barnafoss thunders down a narrow, plunging canyon, rushing around twists and bends, while Hraunfossar trickles gently out of a wide lava field, making for a much more serene site. Near these falls is a fascinating geothermal area, Deildartunguhver. This is Europe’s highest flowing hot spring, and there are many walkways where you can admire the steaming waters and vividly coloured earth, stained by elements rising from the crust. The tiny village of Reykholt is within easy reach of these hot springs and has a lot more history than its humble facade may suggest. This was the home of legendary medieval writer Snorri Sturluson, without whom we would have virtually no knowledge of many European monarchs at the time, nor of the intricate tenants of the Old Norse Faith. Reykholt is close to Langjökull, where you will go on your ice tunnel adventure. You will change vehicle into a monster truck, a vehicle able to scale the mighty glacier's steep, icy slopes, and make your way near to the summit. The highland views unfolding around you will no doubt stay with you for life. Once at the ice tunnel, you will take an hour-long walking tour through its channels and rooms. This feature, unlike the ice caves, was made by hand and is the world’s only place where anyone can walk into a glacier throughout the year. After admiring the craftsmanship, the vivid blues, and the interesting sections of the tunnel, such as its chapel, you will continue on your journey. Your final major destination is Þingvellir National Park, usually only visited on Golden Circle or snorkelling tours. This is one of three of the country’s National Parks, and the only UNESCO Site on the mainland. Þingvellir is located directly between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, which has led to incredible formations in the park, such as dramatic ravines and wide lava fields. This is also a historical location, being the site of Iceland’s parliament from 930 AD to the 19th Century. With all these sites explored and marvelled over, you will make your return journey to Reykjavík. Explore the west of Iceland and adventure into the ice tunnel.

2 Day South Coast Tour | Blue Ice Cave, Jokulsarlon, Black Beach & Waterfalls

Join this two-day tour of the stunning South Coast of Iceland to discover glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, rivers and cascading waterfalls, as well as the unique and naturally formed Blue Ice Cave. This excursion is for anyone looking to experience the vast wonders of Iceland in only two days.  Your adventure begins with a pickup from Reykjavík City on the morning of your first day, after which you will pay a visit to two of the country’s most famous and remarkable waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Then, you will be treated to nearby waterfalls of equal beauty; Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss, which are hidden gems of the area that many people miss out on experiencing. The black pebble beach Reynisfjara and its stunning sea stacks Reynisdrangar will complete this exciting first day of the tour. After a good night’s rest, your adventure continues, as you visit the otherworldly nature reserve Skaftafell and take a walk along the Diamond Beach. The beach consists of black velvet sands dotted with glistening icebergs that are making their way from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean.  The glacier lagoon counts as one of Iceland’s primary attractions, where you can gaze at the huge chunks of ice floating in the azure waters—you might even spot the resident seals that are often curious enough to greet visitors.  Then it’s time for the highlight of the tour; to visit a natural ice cave within Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland’s largest ice cap. To visit one of these caves is a rarity and a privilege, as they are hunted down by experts each fall and fill with meltwater each spring. Since this is the winter season, there is a good chance the Northern Lights might grace you with their presence each night of your adventure.  This tour is in high demand and of limited availability. Book now if you want to experience the nature of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

Into the Glacier Tour - Starting from Langjökull

Witness the magical world inside of a glacier on this once-in-a-lifetime journey. Recently opened tunnels, carved into the most stable part of Europe’s second largest glacier, Langjökull, make this unbelievable opportunity possible. You will meet your group and guide at Húsafell, or a point closer to the glacier if you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle and are visiting in summer. Once gathered, you will get into an impressive, all-terrain, eight-wheel-drive monster truck, and head up the slopes of Langjökull glacier, over an ethereal world of ice and snow. The passing scenery on this drive is magnificent, so keep your camera close at hand. The landscapes unfolding beneath you stunning, and the endless surface of the glacier so barren and beautiful that it seems otherworldly. You will reach the entrance to the ice tunnels. So put your crampons on and head into the blue and white world inside the icecap. For an hour, you will follow your experienced guide as they tell you all about Iceland’s glaciers, how they are changing and how these incredible tunnels were created. Iceland is the only place in the world where such impressive passages into the ice have been built for the purpose of welcoming visitors. While natural ice caves do form on the lower parts of other glaciers during winter, they are notoriously unreliable due to flooding, and often too unstable to enter. Conversely, the ice tunnel in Langjökull is open year-round, and accessible in all but the most tumultuous of weather conditions.  The tunnel is well lit throughout, and the ground is relatively even, so this tour is more than doable for anyone comfortable on their feet for an hour or so. Whether young or old, fit or unfit, the Langjökull ice tunnel is sure to blow you away. Once you have enjoyed the incredible beauty here, you will jump back in your vehicle for a return journey to Húsafell center. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Buckle up for a fascinating and magnificent ice-tunnel experience. Check availability by choosing a date.
