The guides on our tour were incredible. They were professional, passionate, and knowledgeable. We hit some very extreme weather on our trip causing us to get home MUCH later than expected. However, everyone from Into the Glacier and Gray Line did everything they could to keep us safe and happy. My husband and I were very impressed with them.

Itinerary

ITINERARY

This tour takes you to Langjökull glacier for a once in a lifetime adventure deep inside the glacier in some of the world’s largest man made ice caverns.

On the way to the ice cave, we will visit the most powerful hot spring in Europe, Deildartunguhver, and the picturesque Hraunfossar waterfalls, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming out of a lava field.

Lunch break will be taken at a place called Húsafell Bistro before we board the glacier vehicle.

The caverns are composed of an extensive system of tunnels and chambers that stretch close to 300 metres into the solid ice cap towards a breathtaking natural Ice Cave at the heart of the glacier.

Making your way inside the glacier you’ll be able to explore various nooks and chambers and walk over a huge ice crevasse on a specially constructed bridge. As you walk further along the tunnel, the ice gets older and its colour gradually changes from white to deep-blue.

In every chamber you will find interesting information about the glacier on display and for those who would like to get married in the ice cave there's even a small Ice Chapel!

A complimentary visit to the thermal pool in Húsafell is a perfect ending to this journey of Ice Caves. Please note that during winter season, a visit to the swimming pool might not be possible due to delays in passengers returning from the glacier.
