Full description
Venture into Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe, on this 2.5-hour activity. Experience spectacular glacier landscapes as you begin with a drive by super jeep into the glacier area. Gear up with a helmet, micro-spikes, and a headlight, if needed. Spend about 45 minutes inside the ice cave, where you can take photos and learn about the glacier and the formation of the cave. The ice cave you visit on this tour is natural, so it is up to nature to decide its location and its shape. Conditions can change often during the season so all photos shown here may already be out of date!

The experience was amazing. The guide had the funniest "jokes" which are not for the faint-hearted. He obviously is very passionate about giving us the best experience and is very knowledgeable about the glaciers and ice caves. All in all worth the money and time. Make sure to head to the food stalls after the 11am session as the best langoustine hotdogs and fish and chips are there!

It's very good but we had the bad luck that the big cave was flooded and we could only do the small one...
