Go off the beaten path in a large 4×4 vehicle to explore a beautiful crystal-blue ice cave in Vatnajökull Glacier on this thrilling day tour. Those looking to spice up their winter holiday in Iceland with an unforgettable adventure need to look no longer.
Jökulsárlón is a stunning glacier lagoon where blue and white icebergs float after breaking off an outlet glacier of the enormous Vatnajökull ice cap. Here, by this ethereal site, you will meet your guide who will take you up another one of Vatnajökull’s outlet glaciers in a large 4×4 vehicle known as a Super Jeep.
Super Jeeps are specially designed to handle Iceland’s rough glacial terrain, reaching places standard 4×4 cars simply cannot. The ride to the cave might be a bit bumpy, but that only adds to this exciting experience.
After some time in the Super Jeep, it is time to get out, strap on crampons (shoe spikes) and take a short glacier hike to the caves themselves. Don’t worry if you’ve never walked on ice before; your guide will show you how, help you put on all glacier gear, and answer any questions you might have.
Once you reach the ice caves, there is nothing left but to step inside the ancient glacier and admire the spectacular natural beauty found within. Shades of cerulean blue, sparkling in the low sunlight, will immediately greet you. You’ll be able to touch the smooth ice walls, see the thousands of air bubbles which are trapped inside, and, of course, take as many photos as you wish.
Once, you’ve explored the cave to your heart’s content; you’ll return to the Super Jeep and travel again through the icy landscapes of Vatnajökull Glacier. You are then free to explore Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon further or continue your adventure in the fantastic Vatnajökull National Park.
