A must-see for all photography enthusiasts.

Magical blue caves in Vatnajökull

Ice Cave Discovery

In the incredible surroundings of the glacier lagoon and the biggest glacier in Europe, this tour has it all: glacier hike, super jeep ride, and magical blue ice cave; the tour takes you into a remote ice cave in the Vatnajokull icecap, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of a crystal blue ice cave and the intense, beautiful blue color inside.

We´ll have plenty of time on this tour and fewer people than usual. If you are a photographer who wants to capture the magic of the ice cave, this is a tour we recommend for you.

In all, the tour lasts about five to seven hours and requires some level of fitness. We meet at the Glacier Lagoon and drive in a Super Jeep for about thirty minutes to where we begin the hike. Then, the walk to the ice cave takes about one to one-and-a-half hours. The hike leads through a rocky and uneven terrain of glacial moraine and onto the glacier itself.
