In this tour we visit unique ice caves in one of the Vatnajökull outlet glaciers. We always visit best available ice cave possible that very day. It may be different in between days which ice cave we visit depending on weather and other natural conditions.
A breathtaking experience is awaiting not only photographers but also all of those who want to explore the unique atmosphere of a wondrous world of natural ice sculptures and formations.
After about 25-30 minutes of driving on a 4 wheel drive road, we reach the edge of the glacier. Gear and safety instructions will be provided before entering the glacier and the ice cave.
Included is all necessary glacier gear, including crampons, helmet, and harness. Your guide will evaluate each time which gear is necessary. Truly adventurous day for adventurous people with rewarding “once in a life time” experience!
Good outdoor clothing is highly recommended for this tour. For information on gear and clothing see the practival information section here below.
