Langjökull Glacier is the second biggest glacier in Iceland after Vatnajökull Glacier. Langjökull is the home of the unique glacier cave and a paradise for snowmobile and super-jeep lovers. Langjökull (Icelandic for “long glacier”) is the second largest ice cap in Iceland (953 km2), after Vatnajökull. It is situated in the west of the Icelandic interior or Highlands of Iceland and can be seen clearly from Haukadalur. Its volume is 195 km³ and the ice is up to 580 m (1,900 ft) thick. The highest point of the ice cap (at Baldjökull at the northern end of Langjökull) is about 1,450 m (4,760 ft) above sea level.
