The tour

You will meet up with your guide at Glacier journey’s basecamp at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. There you will get ready for the tour and meet with your travel companions for the tour. You will be provided with all necessary safety equipment. An experienced local guide leads the way and shares a wealth of fascinating information. You will learn about Vatnajökull glacier, ice caves, icefields and their impact on our environment. Your guide will make sure that everyone will enjoy themselves to the fullest.

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.

This exciting tour offers you 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 Iceland. 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.

Please Note
  • Sometimes the ice caves are not accessible due to the weather. Unfortunately that’s something we can’t control.
    If the rain has been intense the previous days before the tour, the cave will need to evacuate the water, since the ice cave is the plumbing system of the glacier.
    If that happens, the guide will take you the extra mile and explore other cave-like formations such as glacier arches and moulins. We will try to go as close to the ice cave entrance as possible and hike around the area to create a memorable adventure.
  • This tour has a minimum of two people.
  • Please arrive at the basecamp no later then 15 minutes prior to departure.
