What you'll experience.
An ice cave glacier Journey in Iceland is truly a unique experience!
In this ice cave glacier journey, you will get the opportunity to visit and discover Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull.
The ice cave glacier journey tour will start at Glacier Journey base camp at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. You will meet up with your guide for the tour and receive a safety briefing. An experienced local guide will lead you the way and share a wealth of fascinating information about glaciers, icefields and their impact on our environment during our journey, making sure everyone enjoys themselves to the fullest. You will be driven in a specially modified Super Jeep vehicle to the glacier. During the drive you get to explore the glacier, enjoy a truly spectacular view, go into and underneath the glacier, and experience the glacier’s beauty from the inside!
These ice caves are an ever changing natural phenomenon and, therefore, unpredictable. We will visit one ice cave during the tour and the choice of a cave is based on conditions and safety.
In the ice cave glacier journey tour you will get the opportunity to walk inside a truly mighty chunk of ice. Vatnajökull Glacier was formed thousands of years ago and is by far the largest glacier in Europe. It covers an area of roughly 8.000 Sq. km (5.500 Sq. miles) and is almost 1.000m thick at its deepest point, making it the largest glacier mass in Europe.
