Vatnajökull Ice Cave tour

Vatnajökull Ice Cave tour

star-5
23
Discover the beauty of Iceland’s largest glaciers and highest volcanoes with professional guides that focus on providing the highest possible standard of experience.  Gigantic rivers of ice are constantly pouring down from the Vatnajökull ice cap, flowing almost the entire way out to the ocean below. These powerful forces of nature have built and shaped the land within Vatnajökull National Park, subsequently creating formations that are unique only to this part of the world. Glacial ice caves are created by rainfall and ice meltwater that carves tunnels beneath the glacier and are a must-see when visiting the south of Iceland during the winter months. With safety as the highest priority at all times, Glacier and Volcano Expeditions always endeavour to take their guests to the most interesting, beautiful and photogenic locations whilst also being on the lookout for new features that the glacier creates regularly. This is all part of the fun!
