Tour Details

Crystal Ice Cave Tour in Vatnajökull

In this tour, you will experience a unique ice cave in the wonders of Vatnajökull glacier, Europe’s largest ice cap. The tour is intended for those who want to visit an ice cave, get great photo opportunities, and an unforgettable experience. The tour can take between 2,5 – 4 hours. 

The meeting point is at Hali Country Hotel, 13 km east of Jökulsárlón (www.hali.is). The tour, guided by a local guide from Hali, will take you through the region’s history from settlement until today.

Each autumn, the tour provider 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 need 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 conditions. These conditions will affect both driving and walking time of the tour.

Driving to the location can take 25-45 minutes, and the walk to the ice cave can take from 5 to 60 minutes.

You should have in mind that the hike is always in the pure Icelandic nature on gravel and rough terrain, so please dress accordingly.

Ice Cave tours are weather dependent. Sometimes Ice Cave tours get cancelled with short notice due to safety or weather reasons. After a heavy rain previous days before the tour, the cave sometimes get´s full of water. It can also be too warm for us to enter the caves, the ice can be unstable and not safe to go under. If that happens, we usually have other options if the weather allows, Super Jeep and Glacier Explore, where we drive to the glacier edge and explore the glacier tongue with many amazing picture moments. This tour we offer for a lower price. If you don´t want to take the Jeep tour we can also give you a 100% refund.

Disclaimer: All glacier trips are undertaken at the responsibility of participants. Iceland Tourist Guide and the tour provider do not assume any responsibility for accidents which are caused by its customers or can be traced to their own actions.
