This is your chance to visit a stunning blue ice cave that form in the outlet glaciers of the biggest glacier in Iceland, on this ice cave tour. The ice caves are a natural wonder of the Vatnajökull region, with new caves forming each season. This is an incredible experience and our friends at LOCAL GUIDE OF VATNAJÖKULL can take you there.
On this winter tour, you are driven to a nearby outlet glacier of the Vatnajökull icecap in a customised super jeep vehicle. Once at the cave you will have time to explore and take in the deep blue ice, while your guide explains all about how these natural wonders come to exist. You will not forget your experience or the beauty of the ice cave.
