Full description
Experience Iceland’s second-largest glacier from the inside and enjoy the rare sight of blue ice at the heart of an ice cap glacier on this half-day tour.  All tours depart from Húsafell, from where you will catch a shuttle to the Glacier Base Camp, Klaki. You will meet a professional guide and gear up in warm overalls if needed, before boarding a specially-modified glacier truck for the drive up to the cave entrance. Arriving at the cave entrance, head inside the glacier with your guide. The man-made Langjökull Glacier Tunnel is a wonder to behold. The ice is lit up from behind by glowing hues, allowing you to see the layers that have formed over many years. Your guide will walk with you through the glacier's corridors where you will have a chance to learn about geology, the history of glaciers, how they are formed and how they move.

Great experience! The adventure begins with the drive over the ice in the specially prepared vehicle. Everything was well organized. Our tour guide did a really great job and guided us through the tour in a very personable way! As expected, it is wet in the glacier, but the right clothing will ensure that you stay dry :)

The tour was impressive and fun. Also a little reminder that we are responsible if we can no longer visit such great glaciers because they no longer exist
