Into the Glacier

Discover the uniquely built ice caves in the Langjökull glacier. Combined with other natural wonders in West-Iceland, you will have a truly memorable day.

This day tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy a day full of adventures, departing from Reykjavik in our comfortable coaches. You will get the opportunity of a life time to enjoy one of the world’s greatest wilderness; Iceland’s second largest glacier – even from the inside! Never before the Langjokull ice caves, has anyone been able to see the beautiful blue ice at the heart of an ice cap glacier. No doubt this will be a truly unforgettable experience.

The drive to Langjokull glacier is very scenic and on the way, we make a stop by Hraunfossar waterfalls. “Hraun” in Icelandic means lava and the lava at Hraunfossar waterfalls came from one of Langjokul glacier’s volcanic eruptions ages ago. At Langjokul glacier’s edge, special modified glacier vehicles will take care of the ride up to the glacier and to the ice caves – and what a ride it is! On the giant glacier, itself you will have time to enjoy the stunning environment and view. The walk INTO the glacier itself takes around one hour and is operated with highly experienced English speaking guides.

During the summer period (June 15th – September 15th) on the way back to town we drive a scenic route through Kaldidalur highland track and visit the beautiful Thingvellir national park.
