See for yourself the beauty of a natural ice cave on this once in a lifetime tour in Vatnajökull National Park. What sets the Crystal Ice Caves apart from other caves in the area is that they are open in the late summer and autumn as well as the winter. So get your camera ready and join this fantastic half-day tour for an unforgettable adventure.

On this tour, you will meet your certified glacier guide at a base camp close to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in the country’s southeast corner. After introductions, you will board a large vehicle known as a super jeep. These cars have been specially modified to handle the rough road that leads up Vatnajökull Glacier to the ice cave.

While travelling up the glacier, your guide will tell you all about glaciers and their surrounding environment. The Crystal Cave is different from other ice caves in the region. It is the only one of its kind cold enough to be open in the autumn as well as the winter.

Once you are up the glacier, your guide will help you put on the glacier gear needed for the trip. You are, after all, about to walk on ice, so a pair of crampons to slip onto your boots is very helpful. You will also get a helmet with a headlamp in case the cave is too dark.

The guide will then lead you into the bright blue ice cave. Here you can spend some time exploring this natural wonder, take pictures, and simply enjoy being immersed in the wild Icelandic nature. Should you need any help, your guide will be on hand. Be it to answer your questions or if you want someone to take your picture.

Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to explore breathtaking ice caves in the autumn and winter. Book now to secure your spot on this popular tour.
