Tour description

Crystal Ice Cave Tour

Ice caves begin to take shape in autumn each year and last throughout the winter. Caves can be found in several locations on the south side of Vatnajökull. These trips are somewhat temperature dependent. Ice caves must be treated with the utmost respect regarding the ceiling being supportive and other factors that your specialized guide constantly evaluates. You will have the chance to visit one of them during this trip and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Meet at the location

Please note that you must arrange transportation to the meeting point, which is 5 hours east of Reykjavik. The bus schedule during the winter is very limited and will not get you to the meeting point, so it is highly recommended to rent a car. Please bring warm layers and good hiking boots or shoes (sometimes the ground can be muddy, and sometimes we may be required to wear crampons -spikes for the ice).

Cancellation policy

We will charge a cancellation fee of 100% if the booking is canceled 1 day or less before the event.
