Experience the wonders of the Vatnajokull glacier on this unique ice cave tour.

On this tour you will visit one ice cave. Our guide will choose the best ice cave depending on safety and weather conditions.

Distance from Reykjavík to Jökulsárlón is 370 km. Transportation from Reykjavík to Glacier lagoon (Jökulsárlón) is not provided.

The choice of ice cave depends on the weather and safety conditions. Due to this, the tour can take 2.5 - 5 hours. Driving to the location can take 25-45 minutes and the walk to the ice cave can take from 5 to 60 minutes. Walking is always in the pure Icelandic nature on gravel and rough terrain, and requires reasonable physical fitness.
