4-5 Hours / 8-9 Hours
Join this one-of-a-kind adventure where you’ll ride a snowmobile to a newly discovered natural ice cave on top of Langjökull Glacier in West Iceland. This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting ways to visit an authentic ice cave, and it can be experienced as a day tour from Reykjavík or an addition to your Golden Circle trip.
Langjökull Glacier is Iceland’s second-largest glacier and the closest one to the capital, Reykjavík. Recently, glacier guides discovered a natural ice cave inside the ice cap, which has been given the nickname ‘The Amazing Crystal Cave’ due to its size and translucent ice.
You can choose to start this tour from Reykjavík, where a guide will pick you up in a comfortable 4×4 vehicle and drive you into the countryside. Alternatively, you can meet the guides at their base camp, which is located near Gullfoss Waterfall. The latter option is perfect if you are travelling the Golden Circle route and are looking to spice up your sightseeing trip with an icy adventure.
Once at the base camp, you’ll hop aboard a Super Jeep, a large SUV built to drive up glaciers. Your guide will provide you with a helmet, and overall, and any other equipment needed for the first part of your journey. Then, after a brief introduction to the snowmobile, you’ll hop aboard and ride like the wind across the glacier’s ancient ice.
You’ll ride to the entrance of the Amazing Crystal Cave, where you’ll swap your snowmobile for crampons before entering the cave. Inside, you’ll spend 15 minutes exploring the blue ceiling and the cave’s walls which are striped with black ash between layers of translucent ice. Then, after taking a bunch of pictures of this fantastic cave, you’ll hop aboard the snowmobile and head back.
