Tour Description

Join us on our adventure to visit a natural Ice Cave in Vatnajokull glacier, a natural phenomenon only available during the winter months. 

We meet at the Glacier Guides booking office in Skaftafell and head to Falljokull glacier, a glacier tongue from Vatnajokull. You will be provided with glacier gear and safety instructions from our skilled guides before setting off on our adventure on the ice. It's about a 15-20 min. scenic drive to the glacier from our booking house. We gear up and step onto the glacier for a short hike to the glacier tunnel, enjoying the mesmerizing features of the glacier and beautiful landscapes surrounding us. During the winter, we are able to offer an unforgettable experience into the glacier. Ice Caves in Iceland are only found during the wintertime when the temperature on the glacier drops below zero. New caves are formed in different locations each year, with new ice formations and colors leaving us awe-inspired each time. We spend approximately 15-20 minutes inside the ice cave, admiring the beauty and taking photos.

Ice caves must be treated with the utmost respect and should not be entered without a certified glacier guide. Being inside an Ice Cave provides visitors with a unique opportunity to capture the mesmerizing blue light passing through the glacier ice. Don´t forget your camera as Skaftafell National Park Ice Cave tour gives you the chance to capture the perfect photo of the blue ice cave. 

Please note that due to safety reasons, this tour is highly dependent on weather conditions conditions.
