The glacier tongue is quite unique in that it offers everything glaciers are best known for without the need to travel great distances. The cave is selected based on conditions, hiking route, and safety each time. This tour is suitable for the whole family and everyone with a relatively good fitness level and should be on everyone's must-do list in Iceland.
Natural Ice Caves are only found during the wintertime when the glacial rivers retract and the water freezes. New unique caves are formed in different locations each year. This tour is highly dependent on conditions (including temperature, safety and accessibility). Ice-caves must be treated with the utmost respect in regards to the ceiling being supportive along with other factors. Being inside an Ice Cave provides visitors with unparalleled photographic opportunities while capturing the blue light passing through the glacier ice.

Please keep in mind that ice caves are ever-changing natural phenomena that are often only accessible during winter when the temperature drops well below zero so the water from the rivers that run underneath the glacier freezes and leaves us with this amazing natural wonder to explore. Each year new caves are formed in different locations. We will visit one naturally formed ice cave during this tour and the cave we visit is chosen based on conditions and safety each time.
