Ice Cave & Lava Cave: Dynamic Duo

We leave early from Reykjavík for our Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave and Víðgelmir Lava Cave adventure!

You soon learn that in Iceland everything is possible as you step aboard one of the huge specially-modified monster trucks and drive up the glacier to the ice cave. Before you know it you find yourself standing on top of an ice cap and about to begin your descent down below the surface of glacier to explore what lies beneath.

The ice tunnel or ice cave is a man made glacier cave high up in the remote highlands of Iceland. Your guide will explain how global warming has begun to affect the glacial environment and take you on a magical journey deep within the glacier. You get to see stunning blue glacier ice and wonderful glacier formations.

The glacier is in constant motion and we can witness that movement of nature itself firsthand. The temperature inside the glacier is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit and until very recently what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery.

After our ice cave tour we get back on board the glacier truck and head back down. We eat lunch at Hotel Húsafell and then go on to explore the mightiest lava cave in Iceland, Víðgelmir.

Your cave guide will show and explain the amazing features of the cave, e.g. the  wonderful colours, lava stalactites and stalagmites etc. The unique wooden walkway with railings and remotely operated lighting make this an easy tour for almost anyone.

This tour is family friendly and ideal for kids. After our adventures we take a scenic route back to Reykjavík.

"Awesome"

Having carefully researched and read the reviews of this trip, we booked and were so glad we did. The tour was well structured with plenty of time at each attraction (45 mins to 1hr at each). There were also refreshment and comfort breaks along the way. The coaches were very comfortable with WiFi and a USB charger point at each seat. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and definitely enhanced the experience.

"An amazing experience!"

From pick up from our hotel to being dropped back at our hotel around 8 hours later, we had the most fabulous Iceland experience. Our tour guide was excellent, funny and engaging throughout...not overbearing but gave us all we needed. You get an interactive tablet (so bring headphones) that had a map and information as you drove along- excellent way of getting information as you could choose from a wide variety of languages. The map was GPS linked so as you drove the tablet automatically started to tell you information relevant to your position on the tour.
