What to expect?

Includes Super Jeep ride with a glacier trained guide

In this ice cave tour, you will experience natural unique ice caves in the wonders of Vatnajökull glacier. The tour is intended for people that want to visit an ice cave, get great photo opportunities and an unforgettable experience. Guided by a local company that will take you through the region’s history from settlement until today.

Crystal Ice Cave Adventure tour is easy, we only have to walk for 30-40 minutes (1.5km) to and from the ice cave, maximum 12 pax in a group. The tour can take between 3-4 hours, of which 30 minutes are spent in the cave, at least enough to get the perfect pictures! On this tour we will not walk on the glacier, all the walk will be done on a gravel path.

The age limit is 10 years old.

Please note! We will not be the only group visiting the ice cave. This has become an incredibly popular winter activity in Iceland. Other tour companies bring guests to visit the cave which can cause it to be crowded. Please expect to share the cave with additional groups.

For those that want more adventure including a glacier walk and a longer tour, we recommend our Blue Ice Cave Adventure tour.

Each autumn, Glacier Adventure goes for an ice cave hunt to use for adventures during the coming winter. Ice caves are formed by Mother Nature and therefore weather dependent. Some caves have to have a temperature below zero, or no rainy days before our visit. In this tour, we visit one ice cave and we always choose the best cave available according to safety and weather condition. This will affect both driving and walking time of the tour. Driving to the location can take 35-45 minutes and the walk to the ice cave can take from 30-40 minutes. You should have in mind that the walking is always in the pure Icelandic nature on gravel and rough terrain.

You might be able to see the northern light after the tour. In Iceland, you are able to see the northern lights for around eight months a year from late August till late April. Winter season is definitely the most common time to see the northern lights in Iceland. It is really nice to go watch the northern lights at the Glacier Lagoon, which is only 15 minutes away from our meeting point.
