What you'll experience.

Join this amazing exploration of a secret ice cave located by the South Coast of Iceland. On the way to the cave from Reykjavík, you will see a picturesque landscape that features the stark contrast of black sandy earth, mossy green mountains, and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. After enjoying these gorgeous views, you will arrive at the ice cave nestled in a location known only to few. As you follow the path into the cave, you will notice the glistening walls and high ceiling made of ice that has been artfully sculpted by glacial water. The sounds of black sand crunching beneath our feet and water dripping inside the ice cave is the soundtrack for your adventure. You will weave along a path before entering an epic opening in the ice cave that features its own sunroof. The light shining on the icy walls showcases the unique characteristics of this secret gem. Later on, you will follow the front of the outlet glacier where it is standing high with ash covered ice wall, which forms the high contrast between the surrounding mountains and the glacier itself. The location of this cave allows for stunning views of the surrounding scenery.

Those who are coming from Reykjavík will also enjoy one more scenic stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before heading back to their accommodation.
