See hot springs, waterfalls, geysers, and glaciers on this ultimate Iceland adventure tour of the Golden Circle and the Amazing Crystal Ice Cave. You’ll visit Þingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss Waterfall before travelling to Langjökull Glacier to enter a newly discovered natural Ice Cave.
In 2021, glacial experts discovered a new ice cave in Langjökull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier. Due to its massive size and sheer beauty, the experts named it ‘The Amazing Crystal Cave’. Not many people have had the opportunity to visit it, making this tour a truly unique experience.
This small-group excursion begins in Reykjavík when a friendly, English-speaking guide picks you up from your accommodation or nearby bus stop. After brief introductions, you’ll start your tour of the Golden Circle, Iceland’s most popular sightseeing route.
The first stop is Þingvellir National Park, where this country’s Viking settlers would gather to lay the laws of the land. The park is also geologically interesting; it is located in a rift valley between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
From there, you’ll travel to Geysir Geothermal Area, where you’ll see hot springs bubble and the mighty geyser Strokkur erupt. Here, you’ll have some time to eat lunch before continuing your journey to Gullfoss Waterfall.
After enjoying the beauty of Gullfoss as it plummets 32-metres into a canyon, you’ll head inland to Langjökull Glacier. Here, you will change vehicles; you’ll leave the comfy minibus behind for a monster truck built to climb up the glacier.
The monster truck will take you to the Amazing Crystal Ice Cave. You’ll have some time to explore this incredible natural wonder. You’ll see the sparkling blue walls that are, in places, streaked with black volcanic ash from eruptions in nearby volcanoes.
After exploring the cave to the fullest, you’ll make your way down the glacier in the monster truck where the minibus will be waiting for you. You’ll then return to Reykjavik in the evening after a full day of exploring the wonders of Icelandic nature.
