    The excursion was spectacular, walking through the glacier and inside the cave, with those colors, was much better than we expected. The day was closed with fog and it was raining but it was still incredible. But the best thing was undoubtedly the guide, Oli the Viking, very nice, he told us how the glaciers were formed, the cave... and the best of all is that due to an oversight we got stuck with our car and I don't doubt in any time to lend us a hand and get us out of trouble. THANKS OLI!!!!!

Vatnajökull Glacier Tour

We'll meet at Lake Jökulsárlón and hop on a 4x4 jeep that will take us to the Vatnajökull glacier. During the journey, you'll be able to listen to our guide's detailed explanations of the spectacular Icelandic landscapes.

When we get to the Vatnajökull glacier, we'll get kitted out with the necessary hiking equipment before we delve into the impressive blue ice cave. We'll walk through this spectacular natural phenomenon, which only occurs in Iceland, to admire the inside of the glacier.

The different shades of blue, grey and white that sparkle inside the cave will take your breath away., and your expert local guide will also explain how this fascinating cave was formed. 

After a tour of over two hours, we'll make our way back to the jeep and head back to the starting point.
