Into the Glacier - Classic Tour (from Husafell Hotel or Klaki Base Camp)


Want to add a once in a lifetime adventure to your self-drive holiday? Visit the man-made Ice Cap Glacier, located high on Europe's second largest glacier, Langjokull.

Never before has anyone been able to see the beautiful blue ice at the heart of an Ice Cap Glacier like you do on this exciting and magical journey.

Depart from the Klaki base camp/Husafell and journey to one of the world's greatest wilderness where you will be able to explore the incredible ice cap glacial environment.

This three in one tour will enable you to explore around, on and within, the giant, 953 sq/km glacier, taking ice cap glacier exploration to a whole new level. 

Highlights of the tour:

  • Experience the awesome ice cap glacial environment
  • Ride in our special modified glacier vehicles
  • Bear witness to global warming.

Whilst there are a few man-made Ice Tunnels and Ice Caves in various places around the world, there is nothing quite like Into the Glacier, either high up in a remote area of an Ice Cap Glacier, or on such a scale.
