Tour description

This tour offers an exhilarating glacier adventure with exceptional sightseeing and truly unforgettable glacier exploring. Surrounded by spectacular scenery, being a glacier-explorer allows the unique experience of discovering the shapes and colours of the frozen world.

On this tour you will go into one of the most amazing glaciers in Iceland, Vatnajokull. We have been exploring glaciers for over 20 years and in that time have learned to pick the best glacier Ice cave for every trip. You will be going into the blue glacier, the blue glacier only forms at a certain time of the year, and is therefor only accessible in the winter.

On this trip you will be going to the most beautiful ice cave in the south region and get to spend an entire day there.
