IC-03 – Ice Cave Iceland Tour

You meet your local guide directly at the glacial lagoon and he will drive with you as close as possible to the ice cave. The ice caves in Iceland are a natural phenomenon and they are constantly changing. The ice caves are only possible to visit during winter time. Normally in springtime, the ice caves break and melt. That means each year the ice caves look different and you will never see the same cave twice. This makes the experience even more magical.

The ice is really this blue like on the photos and you will have enough time in the cave to enjoy the blue crystal colors of the ice, explore the cave itself and take remarkable pictures. The tour can take 2.5 to 5 hours depending on the location and weather. Therefore it is very important to dress warmly!

Please have in mind that normally there are different ice caves available and they differ in size, location and accessibility. Your guide always choose the best ice cave for every trip. Therefore the drive and walk to the ice cave can be different. There’s a short hike to the cave so for this tour, good hiking boots are essential. We recommend to wear waterproof hiking shoes that cover your ankles.
