Ice Cave Tours

Join us for a unique experience!

Ice caves are pure magic. Originally formed by meltwater and constantly changing through the same forces that will ultimately destroy them, they allow us to look inside the mighty glaciers of Iceland. The interplay of thawing and freezing creates spectacular structures of all sizes, from the caves themselves to tiny details that never cease to amaze!

An infinite variety of views and forms await, ready to be explored by photographers and casual visitors alike.

Let us guide you into this wonderland! We offer both half-day excursions and full day tours for those who just can’t get enough.

Please refer to our Questions and Answers on Ice Caves for important information on seasonal availability, clothing, and more.

Private Ice Cave Tour

We meet at the café at Jökulsárlón or other location of your choice, at your preferred time, and drive our Superjeep over rough terrain to the trail head. For our half-day tours we prefer to keep the access hike relatively short, but typically we will have a 10-20 minute hike through the breathtaking environment along the glacier before we arrive at the mouth of the ice cave itself. After a short safety briefing, we will venture inside and have ample time to explore the cave, learn more about the processes behind glaciers, and of course to take pictures.

Total duration approximately 4 hours.

Pickup at your accommodation can be arranged free of charge!

Difficulty Level 1-2

Moderately easy. Some walking, mostly flat, over rock, gravel and – especially inside the ice cave – snow/ice. Brief passages over easy glaciated terrain.

Ice Caves Day Tour

Embark on a day trip visiting ice caves without any pressure for time! You decide if we just spend the entire day in one cave, or if we split the time between multiple locations. From our experience, the relatively short winter days make it near impossible to visit more than two caves – especially since you’ll want to spend quite a bit of time in each.

We will meet you at a pickup location of your choice, and take our superjeep over rugged terrain to the trail head. On a full day tour we will have sufficient time to venture out to more remote places, add on a few detours to scenic locations that we pass on the way, or perhaps test ourselves at ice climbing while we’re on the glacier. Flexibility is king!

Total duration approximately 6-8 hours, depending on day length.

Difficulty Level 3

This will be a long day. Access conditions and length depends on which caves we choose to visit, but being out and about for a long day requires good fitness and suitable clothing.
