Get close to nature on an ice cave tour of Langjökull Glacier. Discover what lies beneath the ice on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Descend into the glacier´s icy netherworld and explore the nearby lava fields and waterfall of Hraunfossar.

Highlights

  • Visit the man-made ice cave on Langjökull Glacier
  • Walk on a glacier and marvel as its icy-blue hues
  • See the amazing lava waterfalls of Hraunfossar
  • Ride across the ice on a monster 8WD truck

Description

Depart Reykjavík early and head to Langjökull Glacier. Upon arrival, marvel at the 953-square-kilometer land of ice (the second largest glacier in Iceland). You will travel aboard a new bus equipped with computer tablets in each seat for your convenience. Make use of the GPS-sensitive in-bus audio guide (available in English, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Japanese, Korean, Chinese Mandarin and German), along with a USB charger and free Wi-Fi. Then, get ready to stand on top of a vast ice-cap and descend into the icy netherworld of a glacier. You will journey to the ice cave aboard a huge, specially-modified 8WD truck. Discover a man-made tunnel of ice in a remote area of the glacier at the very heart of Iceland. Listen as your guide explains how global warming has started to impact the glacial environment. Then, go on an amazing journey deep within the glacier, and see and feel the stunning blue-hued ice up-close as it's in constant motion. Until very recently, what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull Glacier was a mystery. Sometimes, with vision and determination, bold ideas can become a reality. The realization of the seemingly crazy notion of boring an ice tunnel deep into the glacier only became possible through the combined efforts of Iceland's top engineers and geophysicists. Once inside, experience temperatures that are usually around 0 degrees Celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Continue into the Borgarfjörður Valley and see the stunning mile-long waterfall of Hraunfossar as it gushes through a wall of lava!
