The Dragon Glass ice cave tour is one of our all time best sellers. Hop on our Super Jeep, put on your crampons, and explore the mighty South Coast and Myrdalsjokull glacier. In this off-the-beaten-path tour to a natural ice cave underneath Katla volcano, you’ll admire the lunar surroundings; moss covered mountains and glaciers the South Coast of Iceland is so well known for.
After being picked up from Vík, we’ll take you on the road of “no man” that will take you to the mysterious cave. The road is bumpy, and views are out-of-this-world. You’ll feel like you are taking a sneak peek into the highlands are you see yourself surrounded by mountains covered in moss.
The ice cave is located in Kötlujökull Glacier which is an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Underneath it awaits the mighty volcano Katla, which names both the glacier and the ice cave.
Once you arrive at the glacier, your guide will hand you all the necessary ice cave equipment and go over a safety briefing and facts about glaciers and ice caves. You’ll take a fun walk on the glacier with your experienced glacier guide before you enter the famous cave of “dragon glass.”
The view inside the Ice Cave is genuinely spectacular the combination of the colors of the ice we don’t think are possible, which is why this cave is also known as the “Dragon Ice Cave” because of Game of Thrones… Prepare to be amazed!
