With a maximum height of 4,760 feet (1,450 metres) above sea level and an area of approximately 368 square miles (953 square kilometres), Langjökull is the second largest glacier in Iceland, ahead of Snaefellsjökull and only behind Vatnajökull in the southeast of the country.
Langjökull Ice Cave
Since being created in 2015, this man-made ice cave has become one of Iceland's most popular attractions. It's the largest man-made ice tunnel in the world and takes you inside the glacier, a truly impressive experience. What's more, because it's artificial, it can be visited all year round regardless of the weather.
Inside the ice cave, visitors can experience the unique phenomena of delving into the heart of an ice cap. See the striking blue ice, listen to the sound of ice moving just metres above the tunnel - you can even get married in the ice chapel inside!
