Depart from the Glacier Lagoon-Jökulsárlón cafeteria on a 2.5-hour adventure inside the glacier Vatnajökull. While your driver manages the adventurous roads, your tour guide will delight you with their wide knowledge about glaciers and the surroundings. Once you arrive at the glacier, enter the natural glacier cave and admire the spectacular spectrum of blue colors of the ice and take photographs. 
  • Ice cave tour in Vatnajokull National Park
  • Off-road transportation is a fun way of getting to the glacier
  • All gear provided for a safe and easy tour
  • Small-group tour limited to 15 people or fewer
  • Learn about the history and geology of the caves as you explore
What to Expect
This Vatnajokull National Park off-road and hiking tour starts when you meet your guide the Jokulsarlon Lagoon cafeteria. Then, board a Jeep and admire the views as your drive expertly navigates the rugged off-road terrain to the Breidamerkurjokull Glacier. When you get to the glacier, you’ll be provided with a helmet and crampons and then follow your guide into the ice cave. Choose to continue following your guide or explore on your own. Either way, your guide will be there to take your photo and answer any questions. After 40 minutes of exploring the cave, return to where your tour began.

Hi, We would not really call it a hike, rather a short walk. At the furthest distance, we will walk about 400 meters.
