What you'll experience.
The quick Katla ice cave tour is hands down the fastest way to experience an ice cave in Iceland!
If you are looking for a fast and easy way to experience an ice cave in Iceland, the quick Katla ice cave tour is a great option for you. This is one of the very few ice cave tours that operates all year long and is only around three hours long.
The quick Katla ice cave tour start at Katlatrack meeting point at N1 gas station in Vík. There you will meet up with your guide and get ready for a super jeep ride towards Katla Volcano. You will then embark on a beautiful and exciting super jeep ride to the secret area located on one of our 13 glaciers. You will enjoy a 30-60 minute super jeep ride to get as close to the ice cave as possible. Once at the glacier area you will be equipped with all necessary gear (i.e., helmet, headlamp, and crampons). Your knowledgeable, local guide will give you an educational brief on safety and what to expect along the way. You’ll take a super fun glacier walk to the ice cave (5-10 minutes) and venture inside to explore it. You will have a total of 45-60 minutes in the glacier area for photos and exploration.
During the tour your local guide will give you a little more insight into how the ice cave was formed. He will also answer any questions you may. After ample time for photos and selfies, you will hike back out and return to the meeting point.
