About the tour

Natural glacier ice caves begin to form when temperatures start falling below zero. Our expert glacier guides explore the vast glacier looking for beautiful ice caves each autumn. They're highly weather dependent and therefore change from month to month to month and week to week. During warmer summer months, the water in the cave starts melting. When it starts to get colder again, the water freezes and creates new ice-formations, surprising us with different caves each year. 

From Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, it's about a 25-30 minutes drive until we reach the edge of the glacier. Gear and safety instructions will be provided by our expert glacier team before we go on the glacier and in the ice cave. All necessary glacier gear will be provided, including crampons, helmet, and harness. Your guide will evaluate each time which gear is necessary.

Don't forget to bring your camera to this picturesque setting. It's bucket-list experience that will last you a lifetime!
