Winter Ice Cave Tour IG01

The fantastic realm of glacial blue ice in South Iceland

About

Experience an ice cave on Vatnajökull glacier! This is an early season chance to visit one of the stunning blue ice caves that starts 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.

It is more difficult to access and more adventurous then on our normal ice cave tour so we can only take max 8-10 clients per guide on this departure.

On this trip we will drive to a glacier in the local area to visit the ice cave. From the parking area we hike across glacial moraine and then on gravel or glacier**, depending on conditions, until we reach the glacier ice cave. Once at the ice cave you will have time to explore, take in the deep blue ice and to take photos.

  • This tour does involve walking on uneven terrain and is reasonably physical, so we rate this trip moderate to difficult. It depends on the conditions, you can expect to hike up to 1 – 1 1/2 hour each way to the ice cave location**.

As for the ice cave we visit on this tour, we do not only look at the size of the ice cave but the beauty and colours, the ice caves are normally from 30-100 meters long.

*We cannot guarantee that other independent companies will not be operating in the same location.

In some cases ropes and other safety equipment may be needed. All of our tours are only led by experienced certified glacier guide. Group size max 10 persons

Ice cave tours are very weather dependant, rain and warm days are not ideal conditions for Ice cave excursions. On such days the caves can get flooded and/or the ice to unstable and the ice cave not safe to visit. In these situations the ice cave tours can be cancelled with short notice because of safety reasons.

  • From November through March it's possible to combine the ice caving with our fabulous tour to Jokulsarlon
