Starting point

This is a chance to visit one of the stunning blue ice caves that start to form in the summer months in the outlet glaciers of the biggest glacier in Iceland. This is an incredible experience that many people won´t have in their lifetime and we are excited to take you to this ice cave.

What to expect?

  • This ice cave tour is designed for those clients looking for a longer tour to a more remote cave

  • On this small group tour of 9 per guide we will drive to a glacier in the local area to visit the ice cave. We hike across glacial moraine and glacier ice (depending on conditions) Once at the ice cave you will have time to explore, experience the deep blue ice and to take photos.

  • This tour is reasonably physical, so we rate this trip moderate. Depending on conditions, you can expect to hike for around 1 hour each way to the cave location.

  • One of the charming facts about Ice caves is they are constantly evolving, we will never be able to visit the exact same cave as the previous season. When scouting for caves we look not only at the size but also the colours and overall beauty. On average caves are from 30-100m in length.

What is included?

  • Local ice cave guide
  • Any safety glacier gear needed for the tour
  • 4x4 ride from our base to the glacier

Is this experience for me?

  • Not wheelchair accessible

What do I need to bring?

  • Good boots or hiking shoes are essential, as we sometimes need to put on crampons and sometimes the ground can be very muddy in or on the way to the ice cave.
  • You can rent hiking boots from us on location for 1,000 ISK.
  • Please wear warm and waterproof outdoor clothing, hat and gloves.
